Don’t You Know How Busy I Am?!

If you could affect, just for a moment, a slightly sanctimonious, self-righteous, and maybe verging on hysterical tone, that would be great. If you could now read this next paragraph in that tone, that would help immensely in setting the scene for the rest of my ramblings. You got it? Good … Don’t you know […]

Competition: Escape to The Love Cave

I’ve recently been contemplating the idea of running away and living in a cave for a week or thirty seven. I think it would be lovely and quiet, and relaxing. Every now and again I even think about allowing my beloved to join me. Not always, but sometimes. And I reckon this place would be […]

First Day Fun

School is BACK! If we’re all honest with ourselves, and I know a few people who have no qualms about voicing it out loud, but know far too many more that feel terribly guilty about even thinking it, much less agreeing with the honest and vocal, or *GASP*, actually voicing it themselves. The point is, […]

My Great (in)SANE Inspired Adventure

I did consider naming this post something about Things To Do Before You Die. But it would probably be a boringly short list, because my brian is already full of things to think about and I’m not sure I could come up with a list of more than one. Also, who am I to tell […]

You Can’t Beat All of the Mums All of the Time

I’m constantly amazed, although I really think the intensity of it really should have worn off by now, how much mums (generally speaking) view everything as a damned competition. If it’s not their birth (good or bad), it’s their kids (brilliant or moronic), and please don’t get me started on the whole competitve behaviours with […]

My Top 3 Gluten Free Lunchboxes

*sigh* I thought we were over this, but as showed up in my Facebook feed the other day, it seems we’re not. You know, lunchbox art? Which isn’t actually the painting of, or drawing on lunchboxes, but rather the art of creating things out of food so they look like mermaids and Pokemons (or is […]

To The Letter of the English Language

I spent a few horrid, torrid hours with my first born this evening. At first, I was filled with a mix of nostalgia, pride, and the opportunity to spend some time doing something togehter. That all lasted for approximately 3.6 seconds before it became extremely clear to me that he had no idea, at all, […]

A Very Pubic Issue

The Puberty has well and truly descended upon our household. It has, inevitably, been accompanied by moodiness, surliness, smartarsedness, a second child who has achieved that ever so fabulous milestone of giving me the finger every time I attempt to take a photo of him (you won’t find that little gem in the Book of […]

The Looming Deadline

It was the fabulous Douglas Adams, author, who stated: I love deadlines. I love the whooshing noise they make as they go by. Oh, I fully appreciate that sentiment. Well, the first bit, I do. About loving deadlines. I find them inspring and motivating and make me do stuff. I don’t like the whooshing sound […]

The Bad Mother: Abandoning the Kids

As I’ve already mentioned, we are currently without child. Or without children. Or our house is devoid of couches being lay on by a lump watching his iPhone screen and the TV screen at the same time and basically taking up the entire open plan living area. Our floor is devoid of LEGO and dinosaurs, and […]
