The Silly Season

So Christmas Day is now only eleven days away. I have to admit that I am suffering from a serious case of Grinch-itis, and am struggling to whip up a whole lot of enthusiasm. It’s not the pressure that is getting to me, rather I think I am suffering from some post-Paris silly-season dysfunctional-family blues. ...

Back To Business…

Howdy stranger. Yes, it’s been a while between posts but I’ve been traipsing around Paris. And to be honest I haven’t felt like blogging, instead I have been almost selfishly enjoying myself far too much to want to sit at the computer. I did Instagram like mad, hard not to in the beautiful City Of ...

Our Table

With a whole other blog dedicated to food and cooking, it’s a no-brainer that I love to cook. But even more than that, what I really love is to feed people. Taking note of the calender and seeing that the 25th of December isn’t too far off, my mind has already turned to puddings, tarts, ...

Brave New World

This post has been tumbling around my head for weeks. There have been fragments of this, bits of that, and I’m not quite sure where it will all go, or what direction it will take. It’s all about the fact that I have two adult sons, and wrapping my head around that. At not yet ...

Where Can I Find Some More Time?

I know I’m not alone on that. There is quite simply NEVER ENOUGH TIME. And things have been especially busy around these parts for the last few months. I have been very busily running around town with a new project which has found me on a very steep learning curve, and has been exciting and ...

Turn It Up, Please

Ah, so much musical excitement round these parts lately! After already seeing Neil Young, Dinosaur Jr, Wilco, The Beasts Of Bourbon, AND Iggy And The Stooges so far this year, the last couple of weeks have added even more excellent shows to the calender. First up tonight we are super excited to see Aussie band ...

Stork Month: Birth, Babies, & Beyond.

It’s almost June! What?! How on earth have we hit the middle of the year already? I know the extra layers and cooler weather are a bit of a hint here in the southern hemisphere, but I am sure it was January about five minutes ago. Really. No? For some reason I find myself thinking ...

Flashback Friday, Geek Girl.

I consider myself to be pretty techno savvy. Okay, I am daunted at the thought of setting up and maintaining a website, but I have managed to become pretty darn good at troubleshooting most day to day hiccups, I taught myself to make a PowerPoint presentation for someone’s birthday, know my way around photo editing ...

Flashback Friday – The Time Of My Life

Once again I’m linking up with Cathy at The Camera Chronicles for Flashback Friday. If you get a chance go check out the other links! So far I’ve looked back at teenage crushes and books. So this week I really couldn’t go past a movie that was a major obsession for a pretty long while. ...

A Rockin’ Stroll.

Hi everyone! It’s been a crazy week. Of course it’s just a few days until Christmas, school finished up for the year, work got frantic before it could wind down, and HSC results came in, but undoubtedly the best part was that we managed to squeeze in an overnight trip to Melbourne to see Evan ...
