One Month In

Been in the UK for a full month now. In the meantime we got a new place, I got a new job and just had my first covid jab. In the next few days we’ll be moving our stuff into the new place and settling in. It’s hard to believe that in just under a […]

Whirlwind few days

Not even a week into living in Edinburgh I have a job trial and fingers crossed I think it might be a deal. So the other night I was laying in bed thinking about how I’ve been a bit burnt out with writing. I had gone and looked at a website that creates pre-made book […]

10 days of isolation: Day 10

Woke up in Edinburgh and spent the first part applying for jobs online through Indeed. I got emails from 3 places requesting a second round so I did some online tests.

The last part of my Australian Sabatical

After a disappointing start followed by a pretty decent middle, I am now coming up the last part. For the previous week and a bit, I’ve been with Chris as we moved about Queensland meeting up with people we haven’t seen in a while. I did no writing in that time. But I didn’t really […]
