It’s been a little scary being left alone with my thoughts. I felt myself beginning to spiral right before the cold hit. It’s happened enough times to recognise the feelings – that weight it suddenly feels like I’m carrying around. The utter exhaustion it results in. It’s like standing in the shallows of a… Read More
Instead of spending the day eating cake, getting my nails done and being treated to dinner from my favourite Thai restaurant, I’ve been in bed most of the day with tissues stuffed into my nostrils in an attempt to hold off the dripping so I could get some sleep. Read More
Mostly though, it’s not as extreme as murderous frustration. I’d just really like to push him that little bit so that he steps in that dog poop that still hasn’t been cleaned off the footpath on our street.. Read More

One swipe and I should look like I’m a walking Daddy Long Legs Pants Catalogue. 6am is not the time for the INTENSE MANUAL LABOUR that my current brand requires. Read More
While I was thinking about what to say to this incredible human, so bursting with creativity she almost sparkles but was about to give up, I was reminded of all the things over the years that I’ve stopped, or lost interest in, or even felt like I’d be too behind if I started, because someone else was doing it and I realised how ridiculous we both were. How ridiculous so many of us are! Read More
This is not Dee…. She left her site unlocked while away on her business trip, so I thought it would be fun (slightly stalker-ish – but in a cute way) if I left her a little post from the outside of her mind looking back at her. I’m not at all wordy, I’m not terribly… Read More
There were shakey hands, tears and all the swears. It was long and exhausting and filled with frustration. Read More

The breakup was hard, but it was the right thing. Read More
I didn’t know that this man would become the one human on the planet that could make me the absolute angriest I’ve ever been.
I didn’t know how far my eyes could truly roll into the back of my head with annoyance at another god damn dad joke at the wrong time. Read More
There’ll be times in life when you feel ahead, and times in life when you’ll feel behind. Some days will feel like a breeze and some days you’ll be so busy and overwhelmed, you won’t know which way is up. Some days your hair will fall perfectly and your skin will look glowy and… Read More

Today I am “Going Back to Work Mum” and as I sat on the train at 6.52am this morning, after leaving B to get the mini’s ready for school and daycare drop off, I marvelled at how quickly life changes – how quickly the past 18 months have gone and I wondered for a while if I had done enough.

Writing changed everything for me. Thank you for being here! Read More
Today is my anniversary, and although it’s Motivational Monday and I would usually be here sharing some words of motivation to get the week started, I’d like to take a break from the regularly scheduled programming for this week to take a second (or twenty minutes) to gush about the beautiful man I share my life with.

I’m feeling pretty useless as a Mum at the moment and I’m not really sure where to go from here. Alex, my 7 year old, is having a hard time. He is kind, sweet, loving, generous, sensitive and unbelievably thoughtful, until he’s not. On the flip side of all of this amazing, he can be… Read More
Sometimes, no matter how much you love each other, the stresses of life, of kids, of broken down cars or leaky ceilings get a little too much and the distance between you seems to grow and grow until you’re at a point where you’re not sure you’re on the same page any more, let alone in the same book.

I spend a fair amount of time home alone with a 1 and a half year old. Sometimes I don’t get the chance to shower until 3pm and sometimes while I’m in there, my thoughts are so profound, they deserve to be shared.
Aaaaaand then, sometimes they’re a list of the perks of a mum bun. Read More
