Changing your mind is OK

It’s interesting how returning to where you grew up can conjure different emotions depending on what your experience of growing up there was. I know for many it is nostalgic and wonderful. I feel that way about returning to my first hometown of Portland, Victoria. My Dad and I at our local beach in Portland […]

Bolt has missed the mark on AFL

  Andrew Bolt’s position on the AFL seen in the Herald Sun.   Last night Andrew Bolt came out claiming that the “the Left wing is the AFL’s key position” and the AFL is supporting only “Left” causes. To believe the AFL is being “hijacked” by the Left is simply as accurate as the existence of […]

Delphi & Cheska’s Ocean Party – Photo Gallery

My 13 week prem babies have turned 4! Not only do we feel so fortunate that Delphine & Cheska are healthy, happy, spirited, energetic children but personally I’ve found myself transitioning into a different phase of parenting. Nappies, bottles and dummies are all in the past for our house and it really does feel like such an achievement. So we […]

My own “sorry” this Invasion Day.

Dear Aboriginal people,   I want to say my own “sorry” this Invasion Day.   I’m sorry that at this time each year the supermarkets and discount shops fill shelves with the “Australian flag” which has the flag of the nation who invaded this country on it but do not have a single Aboriginal flag.   […]

My knickers are in a knot

My knickers are in a knot. I’m totally exasperated about one of today’s “newsworthy” stories. You probably know the one I’m talking about. The one where a well known woman on her day away from the media was stalked, photographed without consent and then this particular media outlet uploaded images to the Internet with an […]

I’m Not An Over-Sharer

I admirer “over-sharers” and I can see how many  find them empowering. I’m not an over sharer though. Because I’m cautious of what my kids would want on the Internet in years to come. There have been times when I was going to stop posting them at all and I am still conflicted about this. […]

The World Is Predictable In Times Of Tragedy

Devastating news about last night in Orlando. To me, it seems this is the world we live in: •A place where trans people entering bathrooms is seen as a threat to safety but the “freedom” to buy guns and even military assault rifles is not. •Where the only thing keeping society safe is whether or […]

I’m Happy That I’m Not Pregnant

“I’m SO happy that I’m not pregnant!” -said no one on the Internet ever. Because to many in society this still appears to be selfish. It appears to rub it in the face of people that can’t or struggle to have children that often sacrifice all their emotional energy, finances, health and even relationships to […]

My Kids Talked To The Person At The Fence

The other day Liam and I were given a reality check. I’m on holidays at the moment but can’t stop playing it over in my head. We were in the front garden of our home which has a very high fence with a gate that my children can’t reach but an adult can easily open. We […]
