Week 33/2021: Swimming in the mud

Week 33/2021: Week of 16 August 2021 This week I was lucky to go on a road trip to the north of the state with a colleague to meet some people working on some of the same things we’re working on. Our first stop was Smithton, my home town....

Week 32/2021: celeriac and leeks

Week 32/2021: Week of 9 August 2021 What did I want to do better this week? This week I wanted to continue trying to get back into my habit of regular morning walks. I guess I’d never really lost the habit, I’d just started to miss a few days,...

Week 28/2021: the streets of hobart

Week 27/2021: the fabric of our streets

Week 27/2021: week of 5 July 2021 What did I want to do better this week? I wanted to work on going to bed earlier, taking baby steps rather than trying to change everything all at once. So my plan was to try and shut everything down by 9.45...

21 for 2021: week 14

Week of 5 April 2021 I’ve split this week’s post into two because I wrote so much about my vege cooking exploits. You can find part one here. I’ve been working through several chapters of the Change Journal, as I was last week. This week, I completed Chapter 11 (Reading),...
