The Toyota Service Difference – Free Coffee!

So with my work I’ve got a Toyota Rav4 (2018) model that I drive within the region. This vehicle, I’m also responsible for ensuring it’s taken in for a service at the dealer when it’s due (Every 6 months). Which, after going to a few times, I’ve come to enjoy it and wish I could bring the vehicle in for a service even more regularly! […]

There hasn’t been many huge things happening the last month – Most of the major things that have happened, happened in the last weeks of March. Just before Australia went into a lock down of sorts. Being in Queensland, which is a state that so far hasn’t been affected too badly from Covid-19. Whereas […]

Getting into the swing of 2020

I’m three weeks into work for the new year and it’s going steady so far. I’ve been enjoying my rides into work, despite the terribly hot and stormy weather. Though, I’m very grateful for the rain Townsville has been receiving this past week. So, a few things have been happening, I’ve serviced my bicycles and have a project that’ll keep me relatively busy most of […]

January Commute Challenge

Hi friends, last month I successfully completed the Strava Rapha #Festive500 Challenge which involves riding 500km during the 8-days between Christmas Eve and New Years Eve. It came right down the line for me with a little bit of scarring and a fall on one of my rides, but I made it through. Since completing this challenge, I had a well earned break of about […]

The Daily Commute

Since commencing work in the city, I’ve started riding to work! I’ve been enjoying the ease of being able to squeeze in physical activity both before and after work. So, on average I’ve been riding about 4 out of every five days. I seem quicker on my commute home than my commute into the city. Work has secure facilities for securing my Trek bicycle – […]

Aside from University, I’ve had a pretty busy week! […]

Settling In

So, we’ve been at the new house for just over a week now. Already, it’s starting to look like our home. Sophie has set the kitchen up and the linen closets, and we are finally getting onto the smaller things that go in all the extra storage areas, you know like; board games and serving items such as jugs for entertaining family and friends. Well, […]

First move in 16 Years

In my last post I mentioned that Sophie and I have been looking at a house – Well, it’s come through, and I can confirm we have a house to call home as of the 18th of April 2019! Might, I add that this move is my first in 16 years. As, after Sophie and I got married we lived in my parent’s place. So, […]

How my University Study has been helped by my MS

Hi all, so it’s been a while, as I mentioned in my previous post, I was in the USA for about 4 weeks – On what I would say is a trip of a lifetime! So, as the title of this post might suggest, I’ve just finished another term of University at Central Queensland University. I’m studying a Graduate Diploma of Information Technology and I’m […]
