Time for more change

Would you believe it is seven years since I started this blog. How do I know that? Because (and I know you should never start a sentence with because!) my daughter is about to turn seven years old, and I started this blog – then called North Melbourne Mum – three weeks after she was…

Anyone still there…?

Not quite Mayday, Mayday as in the emergency call for help, but I have chosen to put fingers to the keyboard again and post this on May 1st as it is May Day in the northern hemisphere – despite being located in the southern hemisphere. I am clearly confused, or perhaps simply a tad bonkers…

Rant of a working mum

I am totally missing in action and it annoys the hell out of me!  Now according to The Free Dictionary the definition of rant is, “To express at length a complaint or negative opinion“. So here I go. I am soooooooo busy.  Work seems to be coming out of my ears.  I cannot recall the last time…

Indulgence defined by “A Place of Her Own”

An indulgence.  In that time known as pre-children I never thought twice of a morning in bed, not getting up, and indulging in a novel. This sometimes including an excursion to the kitchen for toast and coffee.  At other times it was a lazy afternoon or even a late night in bed, reading well past the…
