Back in the eighties, my grandparents got a new fridge. It was one that had a frost free freezer and it was pretty flash. I still remember my grandfather standing with his ear to the freezer door listening for how frequently the fan came on, that would use more power and therefore cost them more […]

I have spent much of the past two weeks thinking about pressure, perceived and real, and the impact that has on me and the people that I love. I guess the thing I am finding more and more evident is how grossly under-prepared I was for the juggling act of working full-time and having a […]

In 20 or so days I will shave my head for Worlds Greatest Shave. I am aiming to raise $2000 for the Leukaemia Foundation, I feel fairly confident I will exceed my target. So my locks are not long and flowy, I do not have amazing shampoo commercial hair. But I am a woman and […]

Last week our little boss turned five…wow. It feels like only a few short months ago that I first started writing about the delights of visiting the obstetrician as an over 40 first timer and here we are five über fast years later. Many things have changed during this time and I have noticed that […]

As I write this post – primarily to get the words out of my head and give them to this page – I realise that I am so very lucky to have a choice. A choice to live where I would like to live, within financial means, a choice to speak some of my mind […]
