19 reasons my new job rocks

I’m having a bit of a blast in my new job. Here are just a few of the reasons why … 1. As mentioned in a previous blog post, when you press “42” on the drink dispensing machine, a Diet Coke comes out. There’s the meaning of life for you. 2. The junk food machine […]

Looking back in anger

I was supposed to blog about the Emmys after parties today but I can’t because my internet, after finally kicking into life after three weeks, has died again. Farketty fark fark fark. iinet have no acceptable answers for me, other than I should try using some sort of splitter box thing that I’ll have to […]

Second chances

There are moments when I realise the fragility of my new resilience. At my housewarming, a school mum noted that I wasn’t in a good place yet – in light of some of my blog posts – and I disagreed ¬†with her vehemently. No, no, I insisted, I’m good. Really, I’m great. But I could […]

The party lowdown

Ooooooh I felt grim yesterday. I don’t operate well on one hour of sleep … So, was it worth it? Yes, on balance I think it was, despite the scene of devastation that still surrounds me. The fun started on Saturday morning when the “intelligent” lights, stand, LED disco ball and smoke machine arrived. The […]

Some galah

I know I said I wouldn’t blog today but, after 2 hours fitful sleep, I had to get up because some galah had set the timer on my oven to go off at 6.20am. Once I’m awake, I’m awake. The house is a bloody tip after the housewarming, can’t face it. So I thought I’d […]

Naked and alone with 2 women

I did my grocery shopping yesterday sans underwear … Now that I have your attention (come to think of it, the title probably did that anyway, ah well) let me rewind … Before grocery shopping, I went to my friend Mel’s house to get a spray tan for my party. She’s a DIY spray tan […]

I’m not nailing the single mum thing

We had takeaway again last night. BBQ chook and chips. The house is a disaster. I haven’t cleaned it since the move. The dog keeps escaping the barrier I’ve erected in the kitchen and weeing on the carpet. And I feel so guilty because he spends endless hours locked up while I’m at work. I […]

I’ve failed someone

Last night was a funny old night. First I had drinks with a complete stranger. No, it wasn’t an RSVP date. I met a fellow blogger. Her name is Lee-Anne and she has a lovely site called Is It Just Me? Check it out. She’s having a blogging hiatus while she works on another project, […]

Three sleeps to go!

Bloody iinet have informed me that I will hopefully maybe have internet access by close of business Friday. A mere three weeks after I moved house. Glacial. It doesn’t allow much time (or comfort) to burn CDs for my 80s party from the Cloud. Fortunately my friend Lara’s hubby is coming to the party (so […]

Shut up smug marrieds

I remember when my sister was single, before she met her Mr Right and renovated her dream house with him. I’d airily advise her: “you need to love yourself first, then someone will come along who loves you.” OK, I now understand how freaking annoying I must have been, blathering such nonsense. I mean, yes, […]
