Today might be an example of what my future will be like. If it is then bring it on!
For the last 12 months I’ve worked four days a week. Last year it was to facilitate course work at University and as part of my transition to a post professional service firm life. I’ve grown to love having Mondays away from the office. Long weekends enabling us to come back from the beach on Mondays rather than rushing back on Sunday or to spend the day at Uni – sometimes it’s been both.
Today however was different. Coffe with my favourite person and our daughter’s dog who lives with us eventhough her owner has left home. As always it was very pleasant.
Then it was off for a meeting to discuss a new post professional services firm opportunity. An hour engaged in “what’s next”. It was new and fun.
After that a walk down to University to tidy up my Ethics Application, so I can get started on data collection for my thesis. I always enjoy my time on campus.
Home for a late lunch and then out for a bike ride. On days like today, riding is like “seventh heaven”. Riding on a Monday might just become a guilty pleasure.
Glenelg beach – what a day!
After that, a bit of time tending the veggies and then some reading. With that the day was done.
On the scale of 1 to 10 this was a 12!
It’s been a week of listening to safe songs. Back into study and focussed on my last few weeks before leaving my firm.
Where else to turn but Springsteen all week. It’s always safe ground for me.
Born to Run – always a great place to start
Growin Up – it’s about transition which occupies so much of my thinking these days
Rosalita – my favourite person’s favourite Springsteen song
We Take Care of Our Own – inspiring
Just like Fire Would – my week has been full of listening to Springsteen and this one is awesome in concert as well as an Aussie classic.
So that’s my Playlist of the Week
The world’s professional cycling season starts literally 250 metres from my home with The Tour Down Under.
It’s January, the weather is awesome and the sense of anticipation about what is about to unfold is evident. As a keen cyclist it is one of my favourite weeks in the year as rather than having to sit up all night to watch the best cyclists on TV, they are literally at my doorstep.
Sellicks Hill – 50kms from Adelaide (Stage 4)
As usual the race did not disappoint with Aussies filling the Top 3 positions (and a South Australian winning the race). To see Cadel Evans final race was special and Richie Porte blowing the field away, hopefully sets the scene for a great year.
I watched all of this whilst reading Continue reading

I spent days trying to work out how to “Claim my Blog on Bloglovin and found this Daily Post that was really useful What the Heck is Bloglovin’, and Do I Need IT?
Accepting upfront that when it comes to anything slightly techie i am immediately out of my depth, the trick was to understand that I needed to add the RSS feed address in the Claim Blog section.
We are privileged to have a beach house at idilyc Second Valley just 90kms from the centre of Adelaide. Its a stunning location with a gorgeous beach.
From our beach house balcony you can see the city. Infact when they used to play night games of AFL at AAMI Stadium you could see the lights, yet try and get anything to it from Adelaide and you would think you were in some remote location on the other side of the world.
You can see the city from here!
Recently we tried to have a bench top delivered and the quote was roughly double the cost of having the same item delivered to Bejing!
There is a point to this…
On Friday I headed out to watch the 3rd stage of the Tour Down Under. Continue reading
