*tap tap* Is this thing on? *tap tap*

You mean to update every couple of weeks, then before you know it it’s been 2 years.

Things are good around here. To get caught up:

  • Dad’s surgery went really well and he is fully recovered. He actually retired a little while ago and moved out to the country. He has a little house on a quarter acre block and his veggie garden spans half of his back yard. He just adopted an old farm dog called Mac. Mac is 12 years old and Dad adores him. He’s well.
  • Sabine and I called it a day on sharing a house. We made it 2.5 years and surprising to everyone we parted on good terms and didn’t kill each other. Fucking miracle, man.
  • I’m still at my IT job. I actually just passed my ten year anniversary here and now have a couple of months of long service leave. I feel slightly depressed about this.
  • In the past year or so I’ve travelled a little bit, went to Hong Kong with my friends for a long weekend (amazing, although travelling with 5 other women was interesting), went back to Tasmania for a week (this time up north to Devonport), Melbourne, Perth and Brisbane for work.
  • Poppy is still alive and kicking. Slightly less fat but only slightly. She’s 8 now but still acts as she always has. Still shouts for attention but generally a lazy sweetheart.
  • I met someone. Luke. I quite like him and we ended up moving in together a few months back. He is smart and funny and interesting and a massive nerd. He has more books than my father, more music than a typical music store and hates people as much as me. He had two cats so we know have three. (FYI: when the cats out-number the humans you are shit out of luck. )

Things are good for me, it’s nice 😊


Yup,….been a long time, but you are still you (THANK GOD!!) Changed my e-mail addie, got hacked and well the usual bunch of crap.
I’ll write again in the next week or two lots going on these days, (sigh) so much for the easy life at 72!!

I used to read your blog back in the day when I wrote a blog called Pomgirl. I can’t believe it’s been 2 years since you last posted. Glad that life is treating you well. Hope you write more often but would be happy to read another post in 2 years time!

Two years! My goodness. So glad to hear that things are going so well for you, lovely girl. Hitting a decade in a job is a little depressing. I’ve just decided to throw mine away and start over in health care – hooray for being a full-time student at 34! Also got divorced, etc etc. Ah, life.

More updates please! x

Tiger, miss your blog entries, a lot. You have a brilliant style and honesty, and your topics are always spot on! Moved my blog to a private .com address “, and trying to work up the guts of a self published book of blog columns. Drives me nuts that 13 years of my writing, soul searching, and thoughts on “the good the bad, and the ugly” and I’m still not “certified” for a free straight Jacket.
I’m up to 73 annual cycles now and it gets mind boggling to realize how long I’ve been on “the big blue marble”.
Hope you still have Poppie and haven’t done Sabine in!
