A good year – 2018 – day 131

After a really good nights sleep, woke and went to work with daughter no. 2, as she was off to TAFE. Arrived at South Bank station and due to being early, thought i’d meet my lunch buddy there to walk to work. Stood at the station in the cold, blustery wind for a while and … Continue reading A good year – 2018 – day 131

A good year – 2018 – day 130

After a bad night feeling nauseous and being woken with a start with a mouthful of vomit at 12.30am. Had to sit up and watch TV, email, and social media while my stomach settled down. Finally climbed into bed at 2.30 am and slept till 5.00 am, reluctantly getting up. Made my way to work, … Continue reading A good year – 2018 – day 130

A good year – 2018 – day 79

Woke up and was still having frequent urination, an ache in the lower back and feeling of nauseousness and uneasy. I was having a shower and the thought of work again started me sobbing. I started to shake and tense up. I then developed a strain in my neck and a migraine. Another day at … Continue reading A good year – 2018 – day 79

A good year – 2018 – day 70

Woke early for a bushwalk. Looks like the cold that had kept me home on Friday had gone. Yippee! Picked up by Andy and made tracks for Williamson Road, Morayfield, and the trailhead in Sheep Station Creek Conservation Park. It had been wet, so a soggy walk was expected. After meeting the group, it was … Continue reading A good year – 2018 – day 70

A good year – 2018 – day 57

Back to work day. And what a day...everything is finally falling into place. The bus driver must have been David Coulthard's right-hand man as we arrived at RothwellStation 5 minutes early, meaning getting the train 12 minutes earlier than the usual. I arrived at work well before 8! Trained a colleague, assisted another, reviewed work … Continue reading A good year – 2018 – day 57

Say Hi! to #WalkaboutBear, my hiking companion! Due to a training course, had to go to work, but what a day! I have volunteered as an Escort warden for my floor and attended training to refresh myself as to the procedures and the role. Now to find out if my floor is different to other … Continue reading A good year – 2018 – day 52

A good year – 2018 – day 48

Saturday! Sleep in...Not! I was woken early with a leg cramp. My knee, which I thought I had not damaged, has bruising behind the kneecap. I must not have drunk enough last night and I haven't had a banana for a while...my potassium intake is low! When I go to bed tonight I had better take … Continue reading A good year – 2018 – day 48

A good year – 2018 – day 42

Today was Brisbane Valley Day. Chance to get out and survey more for the BVRT Trek4DQ. Drove to Moore and familiarised myself for the start. Looks good and across the road from the Old Church Gallery. Contented with the start of the 100km walk,  then proceeded to see the next crossing on Arababy Creek Road. … Continue reading A good year – 2018 – day 42

A good day – 2018 – day 41

What a busy day. Time to get the house ready for inspection. Got stuck into cleaning the lounge room and moved all the furniture and vacuumed, wiped down walls, and cleaned out window tracks and the like. That took me four hours and 10,000 steps. During this time, my eldest daughter came on day release from … Continue reading A good day – 2018 – day 41

A good year – 2018 – day 37

Normal work day. Left the building with a colleague at lunchtime as they wanted to purchase lunch and I needed a walk! Left for home early as I had a Bushwalking Australia Inc. teleconference to take part in. Forgot to get off the train at my station, so went to the next station (end of … Continue reading A good year – 2018 – day 37
