Points of order

I started back at CrossFit last week. This week I did back squats and reverse lunges with 30kg weight-lifting bar thingy on my back. I’m feeling empowered and it has done MIRACLES to my energy levels. Let’s not talk about the STILL aching pain running the entire outer length of my right leg.

I taught my first Blogging for Beginners class at Sydney Writers Centre last week. I was hellaciously nervous and there are some things I’ll change in terms of format but I was happy (ie relieved) with the content.

Jasper and Felix VOLUNTARILY and SPONTANEOUSLY played a game together last night which did NOT end in tears or fighting. Mark that in your diaries will you?

We seem to be gripped by some sort of ginger obsession here at the moment and in perhaps not unrelated news the cold that had been hanging around most of us has dissipated.



Mum’s just back from a cruise with one of her sisters, Aunty C. Another sister, Aunty J, and her husband were also meant to go but Aunty J ended up in hospital just days before they were set to go. She is still there and today they have put her on life support. This is one of those times your world gets sucked up into a bizarre vortex where life keeps going but you’re somehow not moving at all. Thoughts, prayers, virginal sacrifices, sacrificial goats, whatever takes your fancy, you know what to do.

    sending thoughts to you and yours

    wishing you and yours strength to get through what may be

    (sorry, current shortage of virgins and goats around these parts)

    sympathy for the back issue. took me many, many attempts at physios, chiros and accupuncturists before I found my ‘back magician’. unfortunately he is a bit of a wanker but he makes the pain go away.

  • Again with the virgin goat shortage… Good thoughts and wishes in abundance though.

    I could get hold of a lot of goats but I’ll choose another path. I’ll stick with ol’ ways of mine, if you agree.
    Life sucks. It’s up to us to make it shine, make it better, make it happy …
    Be strong dear Kim, I know you are.

    Several people in my office are CrossFit … I was going to say fascists, but that seems unkind. Let’s just say my one friend who does it is hellaciously fit, zero-percent body fat and has arms I would kill for. (Just not ones I’m willing to get on my own by working for them, apparently …)
