The Only Time I’m Going To Whinge .. But Hey Wats Up WordPress ?????


Ok this is an uncharacteristic rant and I promise its a one off .. but what the hell  is wrong with WordPress ??

Ok this stems from a few things for example I log on to freshly pressed to see a bunch of cooking recipes have made the coveted front page. I can go to croc infested river’s , cross a continent etc and write about it but apparently watermelon sorbet is more bloody interesting ! 😉 Not knocking the foodie’s but this is WORDpress. I spend 2 hours composing a post that is mainly words and 4 or 5 people like it. Someone publishes a recipe for something and all of a sudden 456 bloggers love that shit ?! I don’t get it ! But hey if you cant beat em join em so this is why as of next week I will have a Bush Tucker section on my blog 😉 Yep Kels Cookin’

By the way thank you to all the people who do read my stuff I love and appreciate you guys and also love reading your stuff too 😉

Any recipe requests let me know !!!

Xx  Kels gone bush and slightly crazy !

A Gold Star is A Gold Star , No Matter How Old You Are


Image

Hello People !!! Today was absolutely fantabulous !! I got up after an awesome sleep , drove my new (old) Suzuki swift 93 edition ( named Princess ) that my fantabulous boyfriend purchased for me on Friday ( he is now in charge of all motor vehicle purchases ever since the disaster we call the Honda civic that I bought last year and drove for 3 weeks before it broke…not my fault by the way – more about that in the future …)

So anyway I’m driving to work in my new race car and made it there 10 min early due to driving a car that actually does the bloody speed limit ( the Troopy took 5 mins to get to 100kms an hour ! ). I packed all the free shit into Black Betty and went to do my radio cross as usual. Now for the best part : I drive back to the station to drop the van off and pick up the Princess. Before I left I stopped in to see the brekky presenters Tom and Sarah when shit went down ..:

Me : Hey guys all went well , I guess Ill catch ya tomorrow

Sarah: Actually we wanted to tell you something

Me: (thinking fuck here it goes again , I’m fired ): Oh right sweet whats up?

Sarah: We were just talking about how you’re getting really good at this ..

Tom : Yeah your flow is heaps better and its sounds more natural ..

Me : *aw shucks guys * grinning like the Cheshire cat !

I practice every script 5 times before I say it but lately I have it memorized so well  I have started to ad lib etc and obviously its paying off. When I first begun I didn’t think I would last due to my excessive swearing in real life ( I tone it down a bit for my blog ‘cos hey I want people to read it ! ) I really wanted this job so I practiced hard and look ! Practice is starting to make (nearly) perfect !

Crazy Pic of The Week


Image

Looking like a scene from the movie Mad Max , the Finke desert was full of weird contraptions last weekend as revheads from all over the country competed in the annual Finke Desert off-road race , one of the biggest off-road races in the world. I applied to be a grid girl for the race at the start of the year but was knocked back – I don’t mind I’ll apply again next year and if they knock me back again Ill enter the troopy in the race instead !

Talking of Grid girls I am going to be on the grid for the Darwin V8 Supercars this weekend – Its going to be a massive 2 days I cant wait !!

And yes , I will be telling you all about it next week 😉

2 Girls and a Bundy Bear Go Bush !!!


Yesterday was awesome. First of all we went to one of my favorite places – the Buely Rockhole , Litchfeild National Park. Secondly I went with some cool people – my boyfriend Dave and my flatmate Jodie. And the best bit – we took shitloads of vodka and rum – always makes every occasion more enjoyable !!

So I can’t tell you much about the day except at one point we decided to impersonate Swedish backpackers and posed topless with a funny road sign (I’m pretty sure  I also tried to use it as a stripper pole) – a set of pics I’m definitely NOT showing you guys !

Here are some PG rated pics 😉

Image

Attempting to cross a waterfall after a few vodka lime and soda’s .. looks like Dave is coming to my rescue .. and yes , I nearly fell in

Image

Nah its all good Dave , I can do it alone …

Image

Oh alright then I will let you help me …. oh by the way that is not coffee in that cup – I’m guessing a lot of by standers would have been wondering why A) my coffee seems to be lasting so long and B) Why , with every sip , I seem to giggle more .. To be honest the reason I was using a coffee cup instead of a normal one was because I needed something with a lid to stop me spilling my vodka everywhere which is standard practice for drunk-Kel 😉

Image

The water was crystal clear ..

Image

The view from our VIP section – we climbed the fence to get our own private rockpool. If anyone came too close we just scared them away with our craziness – plus Dave resembles that big bloke from Harry Potter so just seeing him alone is enough for people to keep their distance.

Image

The only picture taken with this sign suitable for my blog .. or any social media site actually ..

Image

Goodbye Litchfeild , we’ll be back soon !!!

Forget Angry Birds , We Have Fire Birds !!!


 

This is a video clip I took when I was on the Adelaide River Cruise with my brother. As I mentioned in my last post  the Territory is home to a species of birds who like to spread fire by picking up burning twigs and dropping them in another area. Check out the commentary  , these birds really are cheeky little buggers …

 

Video taken by ME 🙂

Darwin Before Dawn


Hi Guys ! Its been so long between posts and I miss my blog so much !!! I have been happily surprised with visits from friends and family in the last 2 and a half weeks so I have a lot of reading and writing to catch up on !

I will start with these pics I took a couple of weeks ago. I had dropped Dave off at the airport and was hanging around Darwin city waiting to start work. For some reason I thought it would be awesome to take photos of lights , in the dark , with an ordinary camera – oh yeah and I must also mention how shitty the flash is. So in a moment of what I thought was creative genius I took several photos thinking how awesome they would look and maybe I should change careers … then I loaded them on to the computer.

Lets just say if you were on acid you might agree I am a fucking genius. Otherwise you will probably just wonder if I was the one on acid that morning ……

Trees with lights …. Smith st Mall

I can tell you right now , if Darwin had a coffee shop that was open before 630 am these photos wouldn’t exist ! And they call it a city .. pfft what ever

I will finish this off with a teaser for my next post , the day I took my brother to on the Adelaide River Queen ….

All photos taken by Yours Truly 😉

A Very Lucky Escape


Image

This pic was taken at Mandorah near Darwin. The bloke didn’t know at the time he was about to become lunch for this sneaky croc until after he was back on land.  Just goes to show its the ones you don’t see that are the ones you need to worry about.

Here is another bloke fishing oblivious to the salty watching him from just meters away …

Image

This guy below risked his neck for a $15 fishing lure.

Image

But this guy is definatly seeking a Darwin Award …

 

 

Watch out buddy !!!!

They bite ….

The Coolest House in Batchelor


Last week my I went out to a small town called Batchelor which is near Litchfeild National Park  about 50km from Darwin. It is also near a town called Rum Jungle where my partner Dave reckon s he should live.

I love going out to Batchelor because it means I get to visit one of my favorite houses which belongs to a mate of Dave’s. The house was originally just a wooden frame with a tin roof and a few rocks here and there posing as walls . Since Dave’s mate bought it he has gathered more rocks and built the rest of the walls , cementing them in to give the place a cave like effect. Its awesome , I hope one day we can build something similar. Then again I change my mind every time I see a new house I like .. I guess I’m going to have to win the lotto and buy more than one … 😉

Here are a few pics of the house

Image

The front of the house

Image

The side of the house

Image

The back of the house

The house is on a massive property which is surrounded by flood plains so it is necessary to have an kick- ass truck like this one ……

Image

The only way to start this truck is with a knife … I have no idea why either but the ignition seems to be missing so that might have something to do with it.

Being surrounded by flood plains and bush in the Territory also means being surrounded by Buffalo ..

Image

Ok they are a bit hard to see but I wanted to let everyone know what its like to drive in the bush with Dave. He will see one of these buggers 5km away and point it out like I care or something … then he gets all upset when I cant see it – Dave : “How can you not see that ?? Its right there , follow where I’m pointing , no not there , look where I’m pointing !”   Me: ” I AM looking , I can’t see anything .. Oh ok maybe I can see a black dot …  you know what I don’t even care , I hate Buffalo !!”

Which is pretty much the truth , I’m an animal lover but buffalo aren’t my favorites , they are big stupid angry animals that will stomp the shit out of any living creature in their line of vision … lucky they have crappy eyesight ! They don’t always do this but I have met a lot of people who have been chased or attacked by them and people do get killed sometimes. So I stay the hell away from them.

It’s always nice to get out to this property but sadly it will be sold in a couple of months. Id buy it myself except it is selling for the crazy price of $600 000 ! See what a pile of rocks can do !
