So this is post 15 and I’ve said a lot of things about sport, a bit about travel, a bit about books, a bit about tv, a bit about music and about living in Country Town.

So I’ve decided it’s time to write a bit about me, so here’s a list of 50 things about me…

  8. The furthest I’ve driven in one day is 1650km (or 1025 miles for those of you that work in miles).
  9. I haven’t had my birthday with anyone in my family since 1998, only because I currently live 4,100km from where they all currently live (or 2547 miles), or a 3 & 1/2 day drive.

  23. I hated cooking when I was younger.
  24. I love to cook now.
