New Earplugs On Their Way!
earplugs

I’m nearly out of my most excellent earplugs, so I decided to check with manufacturers overseas to get new ones made last week! After a lot of research, I picked some that step up a notch from the last lot in quality and ear filter. ‘Earplugs” is not the right word here – strictly speaking, […]

Writing is my day job – well okay, it’s a mix of writing, admin, content management, social media, ad sales, and a whole lot more, but I got myself into the job for the sake of the writing, and on occasion, when I’m not buried in admin stuff, I will! Not everything I always want […]

Covid-19 isolation: Day 8

We’ve got Opi back! When she arrived, she called out, “I’ll just take my sandals off, then I’ll be right there for a cuddle!” – and she was! Biggest disappointment of the day was buying Age Of Wonders Planetfall on Steam sale, and it being THE worst! I love Age Of Wonders 3, as evident […]

day 7

Tuesday, the day to catch up after sleeping way too much! I’m proud of working super efficiently when all distractions in the world are just a few clicks away. It turns out working from home for this long is hard, and I miss the office. And cycling. I’ve been listening to 80s pop from the […]

The imitated wolf howling by some of those neighbours walking home in the early morning hours, I find extremely discouraging and […]

Covid-19 Isolation: Day 4
day 4

There is a granny flat on the land of the house we rent, which is inhabited by an older dude who is very much on his lonesome here in Auckland, so we make sure we talk to him from time to time to make sure he’s okay, as you do. He’s friendly enough, introverted, and […]

Covid-19 Isolation: Day 3
day 3

Rejoice: Last night I finally beat that Final Fantasy XIV boss fight that made me rage quit the game last time! It’s the little things that matter, and with FF games, especially online, I’m a bit of a proud person, seeing that I used to be a top Red mage to be reckoned with in […]

Cat Quirks
day 3

Let me tell you about my cat Marlene. When you have to stay home for a few days during daytime, her quirks become so much more apparent than during normal weeks. Let’s focus on one.: She loves for me to be outside with her. Practically that means that she will meow, lure, entice, harass me […]
