Wandering The Store

My brother has sent me on a wild goose chase to find building materials for him. He’s currently stuck in his house which is definitely unfortunate, but surely he can go seven days without having to build anything. It wouldn’t even be seven days without building – he’s been building things for the first four …

Dining Table And Chairs

I’ve got the best deal in the world right now. I’ve been hired to build furniture for this woman who is moving into a larger house and she’s purchasing all the materials, is responsible for going to the hardware store and will tell me exactly what she wants built. All I have to do is …

A First Look

‘Hold on, you’ve gotta just jiggle it a litt–ah, there we go!’          The door burst open, light from the hallway spilling into the gloomy warehouse. The real estate agent held the door open for the young couple to walk in ahead of him, partly because he was a gentleman and partly because he was …

An Accidental Delivery

‘Where do you want it?’ the driver asked, scratching the side of his stomach with his pen. I frowned as he put it back on his clipboard, then looked up at the huge delivery of timber strapped to the back of his truck.          ‘Who did you say ordered this again?’ I asked.          ‘Uh…’ …

First Successful Build!

So I went to the hardware store and the people were really helpful! I’m sure they could tell I was a novice, but they definitely didn’t treat me like it. I really appreciated it.  They pointed me in the direction of the tools and materials that I would need for my design, and explained what …

The ink community

I’m one of those people who is a bit of an elitist when it comes to the tattoo world. I hate to say it, but I really am. I’m covered head to toe in tattoos, I attend all the tattoo expos, and I know who is important in the tattoo world and who is the …

Sitting on Heater

My favourite thing to do, when I’m not getting silly with my friends on a night out, is sitting on top of the heater and reading a good book. I find it so relaxing and it’s my favourite way to take a break from my often chaotic life. I like turning the heater up so …

As I age

As I age I find life is becoming very different for me. I used to be young. Attractive. Active. Lively. Now, being alive it’s a struggle in itself. I feel tired all the time. My joints are aching. My bones bruise easily. I used to have lovely, thick red hair. Now my hair is thinning …

Locked out

Now, this is going to sound extremely bizarre but I’m starting to wonder if this is my brother controlling stuff from the afterlife. We had such a close relationship. We were always laughing and pulling pranks on each other. A very huge part of me wonders if he’s playing games on me now. I know …

Meeting demand

I’d hate to become one of those work environments where employees and contractors constantly feel as if they have a boss breathing down their neck. I think that’s an awful feeling. I’ve been in that position and it’s just awful. You feel like everything little thing you do is analysed and that any moment spent …
