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 ...

Let’s all go to Oz

The world seems like a crazy place lately. Barcelona. Charlottesville. Trump and nazi's marching in the streets and innocent people being killed for no reason. I avoid talking about politics, not just here on the blog but even in real life conversations. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions but it can be tricky when ...

Why #sorrynotsorry is the way to go.

I love a good hashtag. #sorrynotsorry Or as I like to think of it: "I would be sorry because it's probably expected of me but instead I say fuck that." Because it seems that, as women, we seem to be sorry for every bloody thing that we should enjoy instead. Why don't men have guilty ...

Old enough not to give a fuck.

First off: I do not think I'm old. What I am, apart from being forty-two years old, is tired. Tired of all the shit. I started reading an amazing book on the plane trip home last week, called The Subtle Art of Not Giving A Fuck by Mark Manson. {Click on title for Goodreads link.} It ...
