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. 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 […]

  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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Tomorrow Gregory and I are signing our will. I am aware this is something we should have attended to before we accumulated two children, two businesses and one cookbook to our names. But honestly, wills are dreadful because the very reason you’re doing it is to make formal plans in the event of the ABSOLUTE […]

Gregory has been asked to be a panel member at Food Service Magazine’s Masterclass about owning a cafe or a restaurant and you can buy your tickets here. I am not at all offended that they didn’t ask me – perhaps they think we’re Jekyll and Hyde, or Bonnie and Clyde, or Torvill and Dean, […]
