Q started year one last week and spent much of her time praying to Jesus she’d get a teacher with ‘kind eyes’. I did tell her that I sure hoped Jesus had more pressing matters to attend to than her year one class placement, but turns out she got the teacher with kind eyes which, […]

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 […]

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 […]

  This weekend just past we hosted at stall at Rootstock, a sustainable wine and food festival that also managed to open the door on Aboriginal Agriculture to many of us who didn’t know much about it at all. Q worked the stall like a pro, Edie blasted about the place and cemented my wish for […]

Our eldest daughter is starting school next year and has begun orientation already. This took me a little bit by surprise because I still feel like I’m in August.

I’m not confident white people have this mourning thing down. […]

It’s a bit of a slow leak I know, but I thought I should, in some formal capacity, let y’all know that The Gretz will be throwing open its doors to the public for the first time tomorrow from 4pm. Hours are.. Friday 4pm- midnight Saturday 12noon-midnight Closed Sunday and Monday. Next week and for every […]

This is Erin’s bottom. It’s a delightful bottom I agree, but i’m only going to use her first name, so any requests for bottom modelling must come through me first. Her manager. I only take 25%. 12.5% for each cheek. I asked her to take a photo of herself wearing these jeans one last time […]

‘Why hasn’t the bar opened yet?’ many lovely people asked me over the weekend while I worked at Hartsyard. I was a tad busy at the restaurant to answer your questions in full, so let me explain more completely here. One reason is the lack of the modern and commonly used device the internet. Those […]
