An afternoon of massages and dukkah

One of my 52’s this year was to get a massage, because who needs an excuse, right? As a bonus, last year my work all chipped and bought us an amazing wedding gift – ¬†an afternoon at Iketan Day Spa in Noosa. It’s been a bit of a crazy start to the year, which meant … Read more

Holy hip pain batman – that massage hurt my butt! (A review of Mooloolaba Massage and Sports Health)

Last week Mario proudly advised that me he was the best husband ever. “I’ve booked you in for a remedial massage for your hip!” Probably not the reaction he was hoping for, but I immediately groaned and asked “whyyyyyyyyy?

None for this week, but that’s not surprising since I wasn’t expecting anything.

I went for a run on the treadmill at the gym, and my watch showed that I ran 5km in under 30mins, 29mins in fact. That is one of my 52 in 52s, however to put it bluntly, I consider distance on the treadmill to be BS. Thus I’m not considering it to be done.
