Life on the seesaw…

So things have been a little quiet on the blogging front of late... Not deliberately or for any particular reason, just one of those lulls where I really don't have much to say. OOTD's and food shots keep happening on my Instagram {actually most of my my life seems to happen on Instagram, much to ...

Resolution shmesolution…

January seems to be the time we're supposed to re-invent ourselves, get fit, lose weight, and quit every vice or bad habit we have. I'm not sure why we're not expected to do that kind of stuff at any other time of the year, but last January I decided that the whole "new year new ...

Another year {almost} over…

In yet another blink of an eye we find ourselves in that weird stretch of time in between Christmas and New Year, where the days kind of blur together and there's no routine but there is instead lots of food, reality TV, and downtime. I dare say I'm not the only person who kind of ...

Counting down to a #zerofucks Christmas

It only feels like a few weeks ago that we got back from Croatia, and I am finding it almost impossible to grasp that not only is it Christmas in less than two weeks time but the long awaited New York trip is also done and dusted. We arrived home in the midst of a ...

NYC dreaming

So in exactly three weeks time my daughter and I will be sitting on a jet plane bound for the big apple, as part of her 18th birthday celebration. We're planning to do all the regular tourist stuff, and, both being OCD types, will no doubt have a well researched and planned itinerary for when ...

Me too.

It's been hard to ignore the headlines for the past couple of weeks as one woman after another has come forward to tell of sexual harassment and abuse at the hands of a powerful Hollywood producer. That the list of names, well known and less familiar, can be so long and yet continues to grow ...

The waiting is the hardest part.

Last night before going to sleep I did my usual thing of one more compulsive round of social media before finally turning out the lights. The breaking news was the Las Vegas shooting. I read the news reports with equal parts horror and sadness. No, sadness doesn't even begin to cover the despair and anguish ...

Celebrating food diversity.

As I begin typing this post I have next to me, ready to be savoured later this evening, some new cookbooks. All three focus on very different cuisines: Dalmatian, Thai, and Middle Eastern. Over on the stove top I have laksa bubbling away, while nearby sits a plate of crumbed chicken schnitzels and some napoletana ...

Why can’t water taste like champagne?

It's weird how I always feel like I've actually achieved something when I don't have time to blog for a couple of weeks. What happened is that about two weeks ago my daughter hurt her knee at work and finally got the crutches the little weirdo always wanted. She soon discovered that they're in fact ...

Cake, coleslaw, and polka dots.

Guys I'm quietly freaking out that it's almost September. Child number four celebrated his first Holy Communion on the weekend. One last chance for me to do the massive at home Communion party where I spend two days preparing, cleaning, shopping, and cooking for all the people I've invited and have no idea where I'm ...
