I started this blog a couple of years ago as I had too much time on my hands.  Writing about anything that either popped into my head or what had happened to me in my corner of north-west England.  Then I decided to do what I’d always wanted to do – go Australia.

Leaving a secure job of 12 years (in Dec 2010), I dropped everything to go to Australia to follow my dream.  Initially starting out on a 12 month working holiday visa in Australia, I then got a decent job and a visa to extend my stay.

I’m currently living the dream in Sydney, Australia.

I will never profess to be the greatest writer in the world, so please feel free to mock my spelilng, grammar and anything else you read worthy of mockery.

I’m cynical, sarcastic and have a dry sense of humour…it’s a winning combination.

PS. Feel free to comment, we all like comments and I won’t bite.

  1. I found the “coming up with a title bit” the most difficult thing. I hadn’t thought about it at all and suddenly Blogger asks “Name of Blog?” oh shit, don’t know, just put anything..

    ..turns out, probably THE most important part about attracting readers is having a good title.


    I like yours though.

  2. Good blog and thanks for the comments on my blog – I’ve been sneakly reading yours for the past couple of months but now I’m being more proactive and starting to stalk the blogs I read by posting comments.

  3. I seem to “steal” people for my blogroll from planetross. So…you’re next because I like your humor. I don’t write many funny things, but I know good humor when I hear it. In this case, read it.

    • Tammy – hello there, welcome to my abode. Mr Ross has plenty of odd folks on there (and a great blogroll), you chose wisely for your stealing. Thanks for liking my ramblings, I’ll check your blog out too 🙂

  4. Strolled across your corner of the ether while doing some surfing ( the web kind, not the water kind, that would just be showing off ). I’m going to add you to my list and come back and read a bit more later. Are you snowed out yet up there ?? haven’t had any daaan saaf yet, although my Dad decided to give me some rock salt and a snow shovel yesterday. Maybe he knows something….

      Hi Maxxy, thanks for commenting…glad you like the blog.
      No snow up here yet (I know a few friends have got snow in the north east…miles away from here). According to the weather man yesterday it seems we may avoid it here…and we all know they’ve never got anything wrong before…is your dad a weather man? 😉
      good luck with the shovel 🙂

  5. I don’t think my Dad’s a weather man, unless he’s a secret government weather man or something…He did the same last year with a set of snow chains. We’re sort of in the middle ( ish ) of the country, so we tend not to get major heavy snow, even if we get some. So it was like, what the hell do I want snow chains for in this country ?? I think he just likes to feel prepared… LOL

      *Shock* The naughty step is over there *points*

      Saying that, whilst I’ve been in Sydney people have said I’m: English, Welsh, Scottish, Irish, American and Australian. I can live with Canadian….just 😉
