Every Problem has a Solution

So we got a week or so away camping down near Newcastle during the holidays. The lead up had been pretty hectic, and I hadn’t been well for a couple of weeks, but we just knew we had to get away for a bit. Armed with three ‘negative’ COVID-19 test results under my armpit, we ...

When our choices lead us into the middle of mud

It’s that sinking feeling that kind of oozes into your heart as the world goes south! You know the one. You make a decision, implement the cunning plan, only to see it slip away in the mess that it was always destined to be. So here we are, four blokes out for a day to ...
