We’ve launched a YouTube channel! It’s sort of like the inverse of Masterchef – instead of home cooks competing in a professional kitchen, it’s a professional chef cooking in his home kitchen. What this means is you get Gregory Llewellyn cooking the sorts of things he likes to eat. Simple. Filmed in his and Naomi’s home […]

Edie’s daycare had a ‘meet the families night’ tonight so we could connect with the carers of the kids our child actually hangs out with when they’re there. Don’t they know the rules for children after the first? They don’t have any of their own friends.  They’re just friends with the younger siblings of their […]

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, […]

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 […]

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.

Two years ago I went to my last yoga class before I gave birth to Edie. I recall writhing about on the mat aiming just to see my toes, since touching them had been lost to me about four months earlier. A couple of weeks ago I went back to yoga because while I can […]

I think it is really excellent that you can do a degree in Anthropology. What an awesome thing to study. I think it is even more excellent that I can do my own study of anthropology free of charge and without having to reference my papers properly. You see, I study people all the time. […]

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. It’s also her birthday in a few weeks, which (given that I thought it was August) has really thrown me, and so, with my resistance low, […]

I was flipping through one of my old note books the other day and came across a list with the title; WHAT WE NEED TO KNOW TO OPEN A RESTAURANT. Under it I had written this – lease  (excellent start). contracts purveyors  (somewhat essential, yes) budgets (not that I do them – Gregory does – but […]
