Throwing the pie

I’ve blogged about throwing the key lime pie. I’ve received phone calls and messages from people urging me to stop throwing the key lime pie. Puhlease. I haven’t thrown the key lime pie. I haven’t even baked it yet. I’ve just researched lots of recipes, fantasised about making them and shared a few of my […]

Confession: My dopamine addiction

I’m hooked on seratonin too … and oxytocin … But before you stage an intervention, let me explain … I’m not a science geek (although I do love a good dinosaur or galaxy discovery) but in my search for inner peace following my marriage break-up – which keeps being thwarted by 3am mental gymnastics – […]

On with the Show


I got a few funny looks when I mentioned I was going to the Royal Easter Show with my ex yesterday. But it’s one of those things we’ve always done as a family that felt strange to no longer enjoy as a foursome. Husband collected us at the ungodly hour of 8am because I’d insisted […]

It’s complicated … and freaking sad


I get my kids back tonight after a lonely Easter without them. They’ve been having a lovely time with their cousins, and I’m glad of that. But sitting at home alone has felt like some sort of cruel punishment – normally have gone along and been part of the fun. Not anymore. There were moments […]

What’s wrong with this picture?


They say a picture paints a thousand words but sometimes it hides them instead. Take this photo of Husband and I, at a wedding we attended in Charleston, South Carolina, this time last year … Don’t we look happy? The perfect couple. Except we weren’t. The whole trip had a funny, stilted cloud over it […]

Ain’t that the truth


You know how I was in love with Heartburn earlier in the week. There’s a part I can’t get out of my head. It goes like this: “Is this inevitable, this moment when everything leads to irritation, when you become furious that he smokes, or that he coughs in the morning, or that he sheds […]

Sea of dreams


The declutter-a-thon continues … the latest room to get a joosh is the eldest’s under-the-sea themed bedroom. The eldest takes after her mother and is a terrible horder. The bags of stuff I’ve secretly tossed from her room while she’s been on holidays with her dad … HUGE. Inspiration for the bedroom came from a […]

Jump back!


I’m stepping back in time … to Sunday. It’s been so frantic that I haven’t had a chance to do it justice until now. Waving my munchkins off at 9am wasn’t bulk fun. The realisation we’d never do the road trip to the in-laws as a family again was a bit confronting. And it sucked […]
