I woke up this morning feeling like I’d been in a pub brawl. My eyes were puffy and swollen. My head was pounding. Once I came to, I realised I’d been fighting off a cold and not a burly bouncer named Sue. Before children came along, I succumbed to viruses with ease. I had yet [...]
We headed to the hills this morning. In usual fashion, we were entirely unprepared for hungry children and spent a good third of the day deciding which tranquil looking tearoom to inflict ourselves on. Then ...
The last time I spent a night away from my family was in 2009. I drove to the Victorian town of Daylesford for a relaxing weekend and managed to chafe two layers of calf skin off during an ill-conceived trek on horseback. I spent the next day walking with an imaginary equine between my legs. [...]
The Arts Centre Melbourne’s new Winter season begins this year on July 26. Running for three weeks, there will be over a dozen events featuring theatre, dance, puppetry, music and digital installations. The theme this year is Arts, science and technology. The Arts Centre chose the theme because: We look to science and technology to [...]
I’ve been blogging less of late. I’ve been critiquing blogs at uni. I’ve been researching them at work. Echo Chambers, hall of mirrors, homophily, the microblogging world of Twitter. I’ve been investing my resources elsewhere and now I’m not sure how to redirect them back to this space. Do I just keep tapping at [...]
May is a busy month – it’s ‘that’ month. Most of us have one, the month where about half a dozen family members decided to have birthdays at once while you navigate an event that’s supposed to be about you (Mother’s Day) but at the risk of sounding a little ungrateful kind of feels a [...]
Yesterday, during a commute across town, I was briefly hit with a moment of creative clarity. I felt inspired and fired up. And I didn’t have a pen. I’ve resorted to the voice recorder while running around a local park but since I can’t successfully navigate the West Gate and Bolte bridges at the best [...]
I always intended to return to work following my first child. It took fifteen months to get my act together. Child care centres were visited and waiting lists paid for. By the time my hiatus was up, I was left with two options – the unaccredited child care centre with the kid eating paper under [...]
One of the joys of immersing yourself in nine different social media platforms is that you get to indulge your mood swings with hundreds, sometimes thousands of people. There’s a certain level of vanity required in writing a blog, “Hello, look at me. I have something to say!” and sometimes during a difficult period, or [...]
I love traveling. I love the anticipation. I love the foreign smells that greet you in overseas airports. I even love airline food. When my husband proposed on a Thai beach seven years ago, we vowed that we’d continue exploring continents. That we’d take our future children to far off places, expand their horizons and [...]
Sometimes my house resembles a circus. There are no bearded ladies, strong men or unicyclists. Instead there is juggling and the attempted taming of beasts. There is walking a tight rope while talking to a spouse because the beasts have sucked you dry and you’re not even sure if you still like each other. Well [...]
