The Simple Life

Yesterday, on my daily walk I stopped out the front of this house and spent some time admiring this huge, blooming magnolia tree. Which is such an old person thing to so, don't you think? As I advance in age, I am starting to appreciate the small things like a nice cup of tea in the sun. A long hot shower. The ABC on a Monday night and … [Read more...]

The Social Media Flounce Off!

In a recent national survey, a very worrying fact was revealed. We spend approximately six hours a week socialising with family and friends but a whopping 46 hours entrenched in social media. Even more reasons to clutch your pearls is that 54% of us spend between five to ten hours on social media every single day! Do you think that there is … [Read more...]

State of Shock

A weekend away with the girls was on the cards and I was counting down the minutes. Two and a half full days of sitting by the fire, eating glorious food, sipping on some bubbles and enjoying the friendly and world problems solving banter that can only come from some fully paid up members of the sisterhood. And did I mention, we were off the … [Read more...]

Busted

Something quite mortifying happened to me recently and I think I have recovered enough to tell you all about it. Just. Remember when I was supposedly spending six weeks in hospital on bedrest because I was expecting twins? No? Read about it here. You would have thought I would have learnt my lesson, but no. Last Friday I was hanging out with … [Read more...]

Is it just me?

I get it. We are all super busy. Whether you are running kids around to sports practices and orthodontists appointments, working, either paid or unpaid or just basking in the general hectic pace that is modern life, "How are you?" BUSY I try my very best to make the most of the non-busy time where I can down tools for a bit and just … [Read more...]

The Most Superior Schnitzel in Sydney

I have tried, God knows how hard, to sample recommended schnitzels around Sydney. Up until this point Una's in Darlinghurst held the crown, but I have news. She has been toppled! This is very controversial I know but please hear me out. Back in 1980, Neville Wran gave away a parcel of land near Frenchs Forrest. Local European Communities got … [Read more...]

A blog about nothing

I woke up this morning and for the first time in a long time, I did not need to reach for my slippers and my dressing gown! Winter? BYE BYE FELICIA! Which is a good thing for me as I loathe the cold weather and find it quite depressing when grey skies hang around for days after days. I have a life lesson that I adhere to and I think you should … [Read more...]

Five Tried and True Mood Busters

In a time where we are all so connected, it is very easy to feel completely disconnected, don't you think? There is so much noise everywhere you turn, telling you this and that. Telling you that you are shit or that you are fabulous. And with all the hideous things going on in the world, it is easy to be sucked into a gloom vortex. But the good … [Read more...]

My gay friends do not have the same rights as me and I am not cool with that.

Malcolm Turnbull became the first sitting Prime Minister to Attend Mardi Gras in 2016 From the week beginning September 12, you can expect a ballot in your mailbox. This is for us to let the government know whether we support marriage equality for all Australians. We will have until November 7 to complete our vote, which is not compulsory. This … [Read more...]

Are you a pet person?

I was a pretty lucky kid growing up. I had your traditional upbringing with a Mum and a Dad and a brother and a sister. We lived in a cul-de-sak. But when I was in year one my parents got divorced and we became latch-key kids as Mum started up her own successful business and worked her butt off. But there was one constant in this time of … [Read more...]
