After 20 years in the same workplace and eight years running weekly magazines, I decided to call it quits and spend some time at home with my two kids, eight chooks and a nervous husband. It was heaven on a stick. Best decision ever … until the nervous husband left a few years later … Divorce felt like the end, but it was just the beginning of an amazing new second chapter of my life. Buckle up, there’s never a dull moment!
Loving it alana. Enjoying the honesty.

Welcome to the Stay at home Mums club where life is never boring, things never get done, yet you find yourself very busy everyday. Those tasks you have set yourself will get done eventually and that will be a sense of achievement. In the meantime, enjoy wondering where the time went and how the hell you are going to fit everything you planned into tomorrow. There is always another tomorrow xxx
Too true Penny!
Alana, does Stuart know that he has the odd walk-on part to your blog? Do you think he should be told? I don’t, let’s leave him in the dark, with your wine and his sausages. Best of luck with it, it’s very entertaining. Julian
Thanks Julian. am trying to keep his walk-on part as odd as possible in the blog!
Happy Holidays Alana et al.
Thanks Hels! All going well, except that it’s 11pm at Singapore Airport and the kids are absolutely shagged, only 90 mins more til we board … yay …

PS off to buy a Pie Maker as Son No 2 has just turned Vego & I am looking for new inspiration..Vege Pie & sauce!
This morning I cracked an egg and sprinkled some cheese in a pie. Worked a treat. Does Son 2 do eggs? Will def check you out.
Yes eggs are still on the list for son 2!!
That sounds like simple tasty fare…
will definitely try.
You know those skinless sausage rolls you make – I copied Jamie Oliver and rolled them into mini meatballs in frypan till crispy on outside, then added good tomato passata etc. Instant Sunday nite spaghetti & delicious mini meatballs…. Back in the days when No 2 ate meat!!!
I LOVE that idea. Thx!!!!!
Just read your article in the Sun-Herald today. Loved it. You should be a regular. Cheers. Greg S.
Thanks Greg, you are very kind.
Hi, I’m just curious, what do you do these days? Are you in writing/editing again? I ask because I’m into writing as well and it’s always nice to meet others who are professionals at this. 🙂
Hi Imperfect Friend, welcome to the blog. I usually write for a living, but I’m thinking about trying something new and just writing on the blog. I’ll see how I go!
Awesome! Best of luck in your next adventure! 🙂
