Meet Chris, Lucas and Louisa

There’s a great kid called Chris. He was asked, “What do you want to be when you grow up?”. His answer was: “I want to be Michel Jordan when I grow up.” The next question he was asked was, “What do you need to do to achieve your dreams?”. He had three things: 1. Get bigger, 2. Shave his head, 3. Be black. I love Chris. He's a total dude. Then there is Lucas - he's 5. If he had one wish, he would wish for al ...

Some Like it Hot…

Oh summer… The heat. Heading to the beach and loving your friends who have a pool. The afternoon and evening storms. The way you can feel it build and then finally the rain breaks and there’s relief from the suffocating humidity. The kids, out of school, running around, noises filling the neighbourhood as they chase the day away. New games created - old games found (finally that toy they’ve lost all year ha ...

Silly Season is Here

Oh Christmas... All of a sudden you are here and I’m still waiting for the year to start. I know we all say it, but I swear the days are passing quicker and the Christmas decorations are getting put up earlier each year. I was very confused in Kmart in October when the Christmas paper had equal sharing room with the Halloween masks near the counters. Christmas this year is going to be amazing for us. I cann ...

Holidays, my Way

So I’m hearing all these crazy holiday ideas at the moment. Mums taking off and going on holidays without their families. Parents leaving their kids at home and going overseas without their kids. According to psychology professor Dr Nava Silton, it’s really important for mothers to be rejuvenated and refreshed (insert eye roll, yawn and loud huffing noise). She adds that by taking the time out to make sure ...

Animal Tales

I love a good pet story. You know the ones where a random poo or humping experience leaves the owner dying of embarrassment. A friend of mine was hosting a large family get-together at her house. I think it was like a family reunion or something super special. They had spent days getting everything ready for the event and had cleaned for hours to make the house look amazing. They even lit a couple of lovely ...

Stationery Addict

A white journal, a black notepad with a funny inspirational quote on the front, a four-coloured pen, a red diary, a smaller diary just to remind me of the other stuff in my bigger diary, gel pens, highlighters, novelty paper clips, envelopes in all shapes and sizes, random notepads with lines and without - I love and own them all. I love stationery. No really, like obsessed. There is nothing like the excite ...

Getting Down to Biz

I always have crazy business ideas pop into my head. Not for me though, I run my own public speaking business, teach speech and drama and have a full-time job on radio and two beautiful kids. I can barely carry on the way I am going! No more time here! But they are these great ideas for other people with more time, money and better business sense than me. Like the company that only shuttles around parents a ...

My Mum, my Best Friend

I don’t remember much advice from my mum. I was too young when she passed away, and we hadn’t really got to ‘that part’ of life. I do remember she once told me I was never going to be allowed to go for a ride on the back of a motorbike and she also mentioned “Don’t trust a man with a dimple in his chin” - what does that even mean!?! But I do remember the way she loved me. The way she would put blankets acro ...

Introducing // Soccer Mum

I am about to become a Soccer Mum. I am about to join the flock of parents on a Saturday morning, on the sidelines of the match, coffee in hand, in all weather, trying not to be too competitive. I am about to start my Saturday mornings trying to find one missing boot, a shin pad, and my hat. I’m looking forward to seeing my little dude run out as part of a team, in his little uniform, smiling in his team ph ...

Mess is Best

I think I spend most of my time at home cleaning. Picking up toys, papers, taking out the rubbish, trying to find the washing machine under the piles of dirty clothes. It never seems to end. There’s always something. And it does my head in, the constant mess that is spread from one end of the house to the other. The piles of “I’ll put that away later”. But I guess that’s what you get when you have two small ...
