I am due to give birth to our third friend in 5 short days, which really just means I’m TOTALLY OVER IT AND WANT THE BABY TO COME TODAY. It has been a long 40 weeks. Being pregnant when you already own two friends is a slightly different experience to being pregnant with one when […]

Edie’s daycare is opposite a school, so if there’s no parking outside the centre, you can often get spots in the school drop-off zone which ends at 9am. This is perfect timing for us as Edie has never made it to daycare before then in her life, but on this particular day it was actually […]

I am typing this blog from our couch, my legs facing the tv, my body twisted awkwardly to face Gregory in the kitchen while he films the Facebook videos for the day. I’m slightly distracted by the olympic swimming finals on mute (the Aussie ladies just claimed silver in the 4x200m freestyle relay by the […]

A while ago Edie and I had cause to sit on the comfy plastic chairs of the RPA Emergency Department after her eye socket came into close contact with the solid edge of the pot plant. She quickly ruled out a concussion by explaining the incident to the Doctor and then politely declining her offer […]

The Squirrels are stealing all the food from the bird feeder, the Groundhog just waddled past the side of the barn, the Chipmunk (or cheekmonkey as the girls say) is scampering up the side of the well, the dew is glistening on the bright green lawn and I am the only one in the house […]

Thank you very much to all the lovely readers who got in touch with me after my last blog that mentioned my half-missing eyebrow. All your well wishes have miraculously caused a few strays to start to grow back. I hate to sound ungrateful, but they are grey. A lot of friends confided via private […]

I was at a cafe recently and I watched a woman accidentally spill her cup of coffee all over the table and herself. No big deal, I do that all the time. What was weird was she didn’t try to mop it up. She just let it slowly slop over the edge of the table […]

Amy and I share an office in the back of our home, that is light, cosy and lovely. If you discount the fact that the entire roof is destroyed from storms pre-dating our arrival (10 months ago). It is due to be fixed sometime before Quinn graduates high-school. Renting in Sydney is a special kind […]

A bit late, I know, but a very happy new year to you all. I hope it has started well for you and if any of you made New Year’s resolutions that you’re holding strong. Me? I kept the bar nice and low and am aiming for less of a resolution and more of a […]

Shingle Bells, Shingle Bells, Shingle All The Way… These are the lyrics Edie, (our two-year old) sings to her current favourite; Jingle Bells. She loves to sing, never stops. Melody – on point. Lyrics? Always optional. She’s mastered a lot this year so I won’t give her too hard a time. Everything is new when […]
