Should dogs quit sugar?

Should dogs quit sugar?

I blogged once this month already, so I’m as surprised as you are that I’m back on the wires again. But I have some exciting news to share. (And it isn’t that Lord Oscarmort suddenly discovered affection. I mention this because he’s just spent the last 5 minutes growling and hissing at me for my audacity […]

On Moving to Australia

On Moving to Australia

Or How to Get a Visa for South Australia So I was randomly thinking about expectations of moving to Australia.  As opposed to moving across Australia, which is what I guess I should be thinking about. 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

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 […]

Springing into 12wbt

Spring is sprung.  I know this for a fact because I’ve swallowed my first fly of the season.  And I wasn’t even trying to go paleo at the time! But like a little lamb, I’ve sprung into a new health regime.  Now you’d think, or at least I thought (because I can’t imagine you spend a significant […]

Thermofix for a Running Injury

Thermofix for a Running Injury

Because a thermomix can come to the rescue… I have a running injury. And it is ruining my life. Or more precisely – it’s ruining my family’s lives. I’m not the funnest mum in the world right now.  Plus, without running, I don’t seem to have anything to say. I saw the physio last week, […]

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 […]

End of the Affair

End of the Affair

I’m typing this whilst wallowing in self-pity.  I have a running injury. Since my dalliance with speedwork a couple of days ago, when the hip flexor got involved, things became messy, and now it’s all over between me and running. WAH! I feel isolated from my group of friends, because it’s suddenly obvious they were my […]

The Thermomix and the Unicorn

The Thermomix and the Unicorn

I had a Thermomix party on Thursday. Which means I’m now going to be transformed into a Domestic Goddess, the likes of which Nigella Lawson would be proud of. The Grumpster is less convinced.  Possibly on the basis of his long-term acquaintance with my delinquency in the kitchen, he believes any acquisition would be a one […]

A Summer Body, Baby

A Summer Body, Baby

Have you lost hours of your life to Game of Thrones?  I’ve only dipped my toe in, but I noticed there seemed to a lot of talk of “Winter is Coming”. Amongst all the boobs and beheadings, of course. All those bodies on display, and it struck me that the fitness world has a reverse […]

Running with Dogs

Running with Dogs

I recently purchased a running leash, because I like the idea of running with the dogs.  My pooches are big dogs, ideally suited to long distance running and I’ve seen pictures on Instagram that make it look like a fun thing to do. But my purchase sat on the side looking interesting. Because I’ve tried running […]
