This week we were….

June 15, 2014

  Welcome to my new Sunday series! Everyone likes to have a sticky beak into what’s going on in another family-school or not. I know that I love to see what other people get up to.   So this week we were….   -lucky enough to spend a couple of days at Sovereign Hill (more […]

Not packing the body hate

June 13, 2014

  I know that I’ve come a long way on my journey to ditch the body hate. I’m pretty far down the path now and, without trying to sound like a wanker, not tying in my weight with my worth has been life changing. One of my favorite bits is how it’s changed my experience […]

The grossest thing ever.

May 28, 2014

    I think she was about this old when it happened. Look at her. Cute as a button. Who knew that this kid would do something so gross I couldn’t kiss her for days.   We were at the local public pool. Our suburb has about 40,000 people so it’s a busy pool. We’d […]
