Stop Running

Homelife Crisis 3 Comments
Stop Running

What happens when you abruptly stop running? Not the sort of stop running, when you’re puffing like you’re auditioning for a part as a very raspy engine on Thomas the Tank Engine. Or giving a raspberry a good run for its money on who’s the darkest shade of red. But the “you can’t run anymore because you’ve […]

It’s a trying 2016 so far

Can you believe we’re nearly a quarter of the way through 2016? What has happened to time? Is there some disturbance in the space-time continuum that means that time is getting ahead of itself? Or is it that we’ve moved nearer the equator and somehow that secretly makes time pass more quickly?  (It could be the […]

Three Coffees and a Funeral

Blogging is dead! The death knell of blogging has been tolled by none other than Mia Freedman. Who doesn’t blog. But still. Nooooo!!

The Hipster and the Hippy

So the house hunting has begun and one day in, it’s already been an adventure.  Herbert and I managed to be at every appointment on time, which was a small miracle, as I’m never on time, and more than could be said for most agents. But turns out me and the boy make a very […]

I’ve been asked a lot if I’ve started packing yet. Should I have started?  I haven’t even thought about it. […]

How to win at life

I don’t know if it’s coincidence, but Friday was the last day of term 3 and I was informed that I’m officially “horrible”. In less than 24 hours, I managed to fall out with all 3 of my children.  Good effort! It rounds off a week where I’d been given feedback that I don’t give enough discretionary effort […]

How to make a blog go viral

How to make a blog go viral

I carried out a little experiment on Sunday.  (A girl has to find something to amuse herself when she’s got nothing better to do than wear her son’s squirrel onesie and sulk about a running injury.) My Pinterest account lies languishing in a dusty corner of the tinterwebs and I have a vast following of […]

Bad Day at the Office

Bad Day at the Office

Today I quit sugar. Not necessarily for life. But I thought I’d give it a go. You see, Saturday, my stomach felt like it was going to explode. In some remake of a horror movie (that I never saw, because – eek – they’re way too scary for me). But it would definitely have involved […]
