8. The last 12 months: Part 1

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not the world’s most proactive blogger. But good things come to those who wait, and you – my humble, handsome readers – have waited long enough. Over the last 12 months, I’ve received literally zero requests for a blog update, so I know demand is high. In the immortal, poignant words of…

7. The last few months

Before we begin, let me firstly apologise for not posting on this blog in over four months. To be brutally honest, I write for a living and often can’t be arsed doing it for free. Anyway, you’ve undoubtedly been wondering what’s been going on in my life (you’re only human), and I’ve been unfairly lazy. How do…

Unfortunately, I haven’t been involved in a single desert disaster, impromptu media appearance or manly spa therapy over the last two weeks, so you might as well stop reading now,…

3. Sand

Although the main reason that this post has taken over a month to write could easily be blamed on the fact that I’ve been playing Grand Theft Auto in my pants, the last four weeks have actually been pretty hectic. For starters, shortly after my last blog post, I experienced my first sand storm. Picture…

2. First time for everything

Not wanting to deviate too far from the theme outlined at the beginning of my last blog post, I had originally intended on entitling this entry My First Facial. Although this would no doubt have seen web traffic go through the roof, I thought it would probably do little for my reputation as a writer, so…
