Bucket list vibes

In the past few months I have started following a few Youtubers. Some of them have been fun for a while and others have stopped posting but I was late to the party. One of the guys I watch is Mr Ben Brown who has been a very regular vlogger for a few years now. He’s got just over 600,000 subscribers making my 34 subscribers look incredibly lame and it..

A birthday vlog

A couple of weeks ago, I had another birthday. It was my 43rd. The day itself was a pretty standard work day but one of my colleagues bought me a beautiful bottle or Rosé wine and another baked me some chocolate cupcakes that were delicious! The night was a lot of fun. I had a boozy pub meal with about 10 close friends and lots and lots of laughs. It.. Read More


There was one thing that was making me worry about 2016. There have been many events this year that have made me worry, Trump in general, climate change, the loss of many entertainment legends and a bunch of other things but my one concern was that we weren’t going to get any decent new Kylie music this year. Sure. It’s very much a first world problem but it’s a real.. Read More

A bit hit and miss

You might have noticed that there hasn’t been a Fitness Challenge update posted this month. Unfortunately the challenge has been abandoned for this round. Damien had withdrawn and Derek couldn’t really train because of a hernia and my work has been so flat out the last few weeks that my training has been very hit and miss. It’s really hard to get out of bed at 5.40 in the morning.. Read More

A long hot summer

We had a discussion today about global warming and how there are ridiculously educated people who for some reason still don’t believe that man-made climate change is real. Well it’s early October and today it was 31 degrees celsius (88F) which is very unusual for this time of year. While I genuinely worry for the future of the planet that we are living on, the idea of a long hot.. Read More

Seems logical to me

It would seem that booking accommodation nine months in advance, to some, is considered overly eager and/or very organised. On Monday I booked my accommodation for the four nights in Berlin. Looking through Mister B&B listings I saw one that seemed suitable so I went ahead and sent a booking request. Travelling alone I quite like the idea of booking a room in someone’s house so that there is someone with local.. Read More

Trying to decide

With my decision to abandon the idea of sailing nude through Greece and focus on Mykonos and Santorini, at this stage I’ll be in Greece by myself. It’s not unusual for me to travel alone, having done that last year and several other times before. I’m doing Iceland with a friend and quite happily doing Germany alone. Germany will be fun to do alone I think, making the acquaintance of.. Read More

A Vlog review!

A little while ago an email popped into my inbox from a guy who runs Sextoys247 asking if I’d be interested in reviewing some of their product. It sounded like a laugh so of course I said yes. They sent me a couple of products and I gave them a whirl. I decided a video blog (vlog) was the best way to go. So check out my review of the.. Read More

This looks great

With Burning Man having only recently finished again for another year, when I read all the stories and see all the photos and videos I think back to my two visits to the festival. One of the mottos of Burning Man is “Radical Self Expression” and everyone talks about how there are no rules and it’s so free. There are a few rules of course. That sort of thing keeps.. Read More


I’ve just got home from seeing a performance by a bunch of my friends from the circus school that is on this week as part of the Fringe Festival. The show wasn’t exactly Cirque Du Soleil but it was a bloody good performance especially for a bunch of people who hold down regular jobs and have run themselves into the ground to get it together. There have been a couple.. Read More

Better check yourselves

After last night’s post about cancer and a friend losing one of his balls to testicular cancer, I thought it would be appropriate to post this video of the doctors from Embarrassing Bodies instructing a football team through a self examination on tv. I’m not sure I would be that fussed on checking my balls for lumps on national tv but it is a great instructional tool. Let’s face it,.. Read More

Behind the scenes

Yesterday afternoon I put together the behind the scenes footage from my shoot with David last weekend. Each time I do a video I’m learning something which is good. What did I learn this time? The GoPro I had set up ran out of space on the memory card so I learned that I need to be more aware of how much footage can fit on different memory cards. David.. Read More

It won’t be good.

Today a date was announced for a non-binding Plebiscite on Marriage Equality. Our Prime Minister before he took power said he was against the idea when his predecessor put the plan in place but he has stupidly stuck to all the policies of the man he ousted for being incompetent. The wording of the question has also been announced which will go to the polls on February 11th next year… Read More

Too much effort

It’s no secret that Cirque Du Soleil is something I enjoy seeing a lot. The company started near Quebec City in the early 80’s as a troupe of street performers. Shortly after, one of those performers Guy Laliberté took the group on tour and essentially created what is now a world wide phenomenon. Last night a few of us from my circus school went to see Kooza, the show currently.. Read More

Something different?

For the last few weeks I’ve watched a lot of videos from Youtube Vloggers. There are a couple that are fairly well known. I started with JacksGap who was doing lots of videos along with his twin brother but seems to have gone off the radar about 12 months ago. He has lots of content to go through and was developing a real social conscience with his content. Through his.. Read More
