Change will be coming…

…to me that is, not this blog. It has been brewing for quite some time. And then you reach the point of action – take action or do nothing. What has galvanised me? A host of things of which some are possible future posts as I take the actual steps. And how will I adhere…

Stating the obvious

What did I learn on Friday…that I need some child, other half, and work free time on a regular basis. And also think that time should be during the week. Now I do not mean every week (though that might be nice…). It just hit home that I need to escape work and family and…

Crazy, Stupid, Love

Even for yourself, to steal the name of a movie.  If you have not seen the 2011 Crazy, Stupid, Love movie I highly recommend it.  I watched it for the first time just the other day, and wanted to watch it again immediately (and did so the next day!). To linger on one of the…

Beer cracking time

I cracked a beer at 12 noon today.  Did I mention I was in charge of my 2&1/2 year old?  Rest assured I did not give her one!  But as for me, it is Melbourne, I am on my last week of holiday, and the mercury is at 36.1 ºC.  I feel like a reckless Uni student, having…
