Season’s Greetings

2017 has not been the year I imagined. Maybe I had more specific intentions or perhaps the years are always like this and it is simply that I noticed this year. Nevertheless I shall have some intentions for 2018.

Wishing you all the best for the festive season in whatever way you do or don’t celebrate this. Looking forward to sharing 2018 with you.

Lazy post for the festive break

Well, lazy on my part that is; but not for you. While my fingers may not be a tapping words of wit, my eyes have been a reading so I am sharing a few links for your reading pleasure.

  1. First up a good read on why we need sleep and how it helps us to better solve problems (something all parents of small children can attest to!), check this out here.
  2. A great post on how we are torturing new mothers, here.
  3. A great post on why it is important to spend time in nature, here.
  4. A yes the world has gone mad, or too PC post, here.

Finally I am delighted to say that I have been putting my relaxing time to use, and have finally finished this shrug for my now not so little girl. As someone who has yet to knit a tension square before knitting a garment I am pleased to say that while I started this a year ago in the 2 – 3 year old size, it does fit my now 3 & 1/2 year old. Though I will be putting it on her every chance I get this summer!

Hope you are having an enjoyable festive season regardless of how you do or don’t celebrate this time of year.


Beer cracking time

peroni north melbourneI 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 a beer in the middle of the day.  Note to self, must do more often – ok, it does not always have to be a beer, but to capture that spontaneity, that is worth pursuing.

Whitebait, Sand, Inspiration and Aspiration

It all started with a whitebait fritter, and it exploded from there in all directions, almost like a shock wave from a nuclear bomb.   Continue reading
