I didn’t want to write about it here at the time, but Max was away for a work trip over eight days in the last couple weeks. He had the chance to go to Washington, DC, for a training induction at his job, and he had a blast touring iconic sites, eating and drinking the American way, and working hard . . .
This week has been challenging. Zach has entered a new wonder week, and ‘week’ isn’t quite the right description: this one is meant to last a whole five weeks! If you haven’t heard of wonder weeks, they’re periods in a baby’s life where they are growing and learning new things and having major . . .
Max and I enjoyed this curry for dinner tonight (Zach will have his milkified taste a little later on!). It’s one of our favourites; we first had it at my sister’s house in Canada. We were visiting last Christmas and staying all in one house with my parents, my sister and brother-in-law, and their . . .
I’m currently sitting on my couch, drinking tea and typing on my trusty old laptop…alone. Completely alone. I can’t remember the last time I was alone; these moments, once plentiful and taken for granted, are now few and far between and fiercely valued. You see, in early April this year, my world . . .
Max and I are having a baby! We’re just so excited about the big changes coming this year! We will welcome our little addition in April, bringing our household to two adults, a baby, two dogs, and a cat. Our circus is getting wilder and we wouldn’t have it any other way. Given the change on . . .
I was a vegetarian for 14 years; a vegan for one. I’ve been on the Body Trim program, counted every calorie, and went to Weight Watchers for a little while back in high school. I’ve lived the extremes: first as an exercise addict, eating 1200 calories a day and revelling in my skinny jeans; later . . .
Hello and happy new year! How were your holidays? I just landed back in Adelaide after a month away in the USA and Canada, and let me tell you… it’s hard to be back! Every time I visit my family in North America I get major withdrawal symptoms and miss living there so much! I’m hoping to post about . . .
Ah, another weekend gone in a blink! I actually had Friday off work because I need to use up some annual leave days (we’re not sure if my work is getting refunded in 2015, so we’re instructed to use up our leave before then). It was great having a day off, but sort of felt like a waste at the same . . .
Hi! How was your weekend? I had a great one. After I checked in with you on Friday night, Max and I grabbed dinner, played “Terminator” Salvation” at the arcade, and headed home to cuddle with the animals and watch The Walking Dead and enjoy some red wine. Playing this Terminator game is actually . . .
Good afternoon! I wish sometimes that I was a better morning person so that I could check in while I’m sipping hot tea in my perfectly organised home office, chatting away to my invisible internet friends…but of course that never happens! Take yesterday morning, for instance. I woke up to a really . . .
