None of my business

July 18, 2013

  The other day I had one of those shitty parenting moments. In public. With witnesses.   I’m so tired at the moment. The insomnia is back with a vengeance and I’m only managing a few broken hours of sleep a night, which is never a good starting point. It’s the middle of winter so […]

Nothing New Under The Sun

July 16, 2013

  I saw this doing the rounds on facebook and I’ll admit it got my back up a little.     Firstly can we just take a moment to appreciate the irony that this is a MEME on FACEBOOK that most people access through their SMARTPHONE?   But seriously, nothing changes.   It’s always an […]

May they always have the right to choose.

June 26, 2013

  I will never forget that doctor’s appointment. I went in complaining of feeling generally crap for a few weeks with some nausea and feeling lightheaded. I thought I had a virus and wanted a couple of days off work to sleep it off. The GP offered a pregnancy test which I laughed at. I […]

Unschooling doco-with us in it!

June 18, 2013

  I know I haven’t been around much lately. I’ll explain another time.   But for now I wanted to share this documentary that Amy Rathbone made about unschooling. Partly because it’s a positive look at unschooling and partly because we’re in it! ¬†She followed us around for a day, asked lots of questions and […]
