So today we reach the final scheduled post for Splat On.
As it is when good things end, I find myself thinking over the good times.
There’s been quite a few life changes. Making the tree change or moving in with partners, or better still, friends from the blog. To have shared some of . . . → Read More: Finishing Off FOF
This week has been a week of endless tasks and rising panic that I am going to forget something.
Al tells tale of a speaker he saw, the author of Getting Things Done, who had an extensive list for travel. Every item on the list was forgotten at least once.
It is said to . . . → Read More: What’s on your mind?
British retailer Marks & Spencer, in conjunction with Oxfam, have been doing a bit of research into clothes styling in relationships.
Among the findings was that, for the first few months (the honeymoon phase) of a relationship, you can pretty much get away with most things you’re wearing.
But after that, your partner will . . . → Read More: Wh/sWW – What is he/she Wearing on Wednesday?!?!
There’s been some interesting debate this week on the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).
If you read the article I read on news.com.au, you might have been a bit perplexed as to what we are up to in this country.
There was a statement on the Herald Sun yesterday, as they bashed the . . . → Read More: Fitting Out Fellow Aussies

All very well, but as they are scratching around trying to get the right spot, you notice that every time they get close . . . → Read More: The Big Itch
Last night, I went running. I say last night, but since I’m writing this post on Wednesday afternoon, it’s going to be tonight. But by the time you read this, it will be last night. I may let you know how it went.
Other times I go to the gym and lift weight. Just small . . . → Read More: Forget lifting weights…
As you may have heard, from hints we’ve dropped on Twitter & Facebook, the Smocust is skipping the country and heading for cooler climes.
That, of course, means resigning from our current jobs. Smoph & I both opted for the dignified way of doing it, but there are those whom aren’t as concerned with burning . . . → Read More: Going out in style
An article has surfaced this week about the relatively new SAMOA Airlines causing a big stir. They’ve now started charging passengers and their luggage purely and simply by the kilogram.
On one hand this could be a very sensible and logical move. After all, particularly on smaller aircraft, the cost of the flight and fuel . . . → Read More: Wednesday Weigh-In: Would you still come fly with me?
There is a certain glorification of the past, a very vintage appreciation.
Whether it is the clothing of a former generation (which seem to come back around anyway), or a style of decor, or even the music, it seems that we idolise that which has gone before.
Last night, Al and I traipsed down to . . . → Read More: When will the vintage themes become irrelevant?
