Slack Saturday: 10 Things I Hate About Pregnancy

Welcome to Slack Saturday. It’s been a bit of a week and my brain needs a rest, so I’ve given it the day off. Fortunately, I’ve been digging around in my back catalogue (aka dusty boxes in the attic) lately. It’s been very entertaining – the reading bit, the digging bit sucks – trying to recall the woman who wrote all those magazine articles. This one […]

Chang Mai Noodles

Pre-Sprogs, this was a Household favourite. It went by the wayside during the toddler and dissacharide deficiency years. Since the Sprogs have started tolerating a touch of spice lately, I decided to give it another whirl. Sprog 1 had seconds, Sprog 2 didn’t complain too much. It’s also preservative-free for those who prefer their dishes that way. CHANG MAI […]

Grim at the gym

I officially joined the gym this week – after a rather expensive trial period – and I’m already jack of it. It’s been six weeks of blood, sweat and tears and I don’t see the slightest improvement in my body. I put myself through five agonising gym classes each week and for what? The scales haven’t moved, my belt notches haven’t either. I […]

Meeting Mrs Woog (plus VOTE FOR ME, ME, ME!)

I don’t normally get girl crushes, I’m more a left-of-field-boy-crush gal. For those who’ve missed my crush list, here it is again, in chronological order: Kevin Bacon, Neil Finn, Chris Evans (cute blonde boy in year 12), Michael J. Fox, Michael Damian, several boys I snogged in alleys around the Crazy Horse Nightclub in the early ’90s, […]

Pigging out

I didn’t have total obliteration in me last night, despite the availability of free alcohol. But I did put away a generous amount of champagne at the Kidspot Top 50 Bloggers of 2012 cocktail party last night, so I’m a bit hungover and disorganised after a blackout screwed with my alarm clock. You’ll have to wait for my extra-large Diet […]

Winners and losers

I’m worried. The Twitterverse has been going bonkers with birds getting pedicures, blow-dries, spray tans etc for the Kidspot 50 Top Bloggers of 2012 party tonight. I meant to get a brow wax, lash tint and pedicure … but I didn’t quite get around to it. I’ll try and sort it for The Cruise next week. So […]

Breeding like rabbits

I’ve stuffed up my stuffed stuff for Easter. I forgot to change my email address on eBay when I left work last year. So the lovely folk at All Plush – the ultimate in internet porn for stuffed stuff lovers – have been sending fruitless messages, trying to tell me the Powder Puff Pet Carrier is no longer available (see […]

I need your advice

I don’t know what to do. I wish my problem was simple, like what to wear to the Kidspot 50 Top Bloggers of 2012 cocktail party tomorrow night. (Although that’s gone a bit pear-shaped as well – I can’t wear my new Leona Edmiston dress, my fake tan is wearing off and I’ve developed Michael Jacksonitis, my legs are all patchy.) […]
