This one goes out to 2234.

Living in a bushfire prone area brings with it a certain reality. Regular hazard reduction burns along with real and dangerous threats to the community when bushfires do get out of hand go hand in hand with Santa driving down the street in a fire truck on Christmas Day handing out lollies. The day we ...

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 ...

When birthdays meet hormones…

Chalk it up to my long time hatred of odd numbers or just some plain old hormoaning, but I was not looking forward to turning forty-three last week. So much was I NOT feeling it that I cancelled the group dinner booking for the Friday night of my birthday and made sure to have no ...

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 ...

I live in a world of fantasy, so keep your reality away from me.
