I burnt dinner again

I burnt dinner again

I bought Nigella Lawson’s book that was going to teach me how to be a Domestic Goddess.  I even opened the pages a couple of times.  But somehow, I’m immune to her teachings.  And most others that want to convert me to being good at domestic thingies. Thank goodness for the Grumpster.  He’s currently bailing me […]

The Wife in the Bath

The Wife in the Bath

So the hubstacle and I were discussing divorce yesterday.  As you do. I don’t quite know how we got onto the topic, but I think it was something to do with the kids.  I think it was Herbert whose conversational opening gambit was “so when you two get a divorce…”!

Mark Latham and the West Side Story

Mark Latham and the West Side Story

I’m really confused.  That’s nothing new, but hear me out.  I’m a bit of a new kid on the block and not a massive follower of things political, so I’d never heard of Mark Latham before yesterday.  But I was doing a bit of quiet reading of Amy’s blog over at Handbag Mafia (which I […]

Emergency Kittens

I have decided I want a kitten.  A few weeks ago, I decided I wanted a blog.  Now I have a blog.  When I decide I want something, it usually happens.  I am impetuous that way. So now I am on a mission to own a kitten, and the poor hubstacle has had to endure a […]

IKEA saved my life today!

  Honestly, I thought I was going to die today.  I didn’t have the whole “life flashed before me” kind of experience, but I did want to have a full blown panic.  But as none of my fellow passengers had gone into mental meltdown, I decided I’d better restrain myself. Plus there was a head […]

Remembering Tom

Remembering Tom

A bit of a coincidence today.  Each member of our team at work takes it in turns to give a “safety tool box talk” and today fell to me.  On Remembrance Day. Being a Brit, this is our one day of remembrance, but my topic for my talk was not so much about fallen war […]

Where were you when the Berlin Wall came down?

Where were you when the Berlin Wall came down?

Is it really 25 years since the Berlin Wall came down?  That really is a scary statistic!  It only feels like yesterday.    You see that is one world event that I remember very well, because I was there!  Not literally there, as in Berlin, trying to breach the wall to reach the Brandenburg Gate, you […]

The Boganvillia Beach Fiasco

Homelife Crisis 3 Comments

So up here in Boganvillia, we have a beach, which we all know and love as the Foreshore.  Because…. that’s it’s name.  I was going to tell you exactly how long it is, in a very precise and researched kind of way.  All professional and everything.  (And more to the point, I am falling literally off the board in […]

Boganvillia

Homelife Crisis 1 Comment

So I was sitting there sipping my tea, catching up with what’s going on the in the world.  And by that, I mean I was looking at Facebook, because that is the actual news now, right? Anyway, it’s flooded with pictures of fashionistas at the Melbourne Cup.  (Mrs Lynch: looking LOVELY!!) and then a link […]
