This is my story. About being a mumma. And being little. Because, by all accounts, I am both. A vertically challenged mother of two (who is crazy original with the blog names).
Interests: Eating a meal while it's still warm, going to the toilet alone, drinking wine through a funnel

“You will go home. I promise you I’ll get you home,” the young guy soothed, slipping an arm around her neck. The cab pushed forward into darkness, the sparkling city lights falling far behind. The young girl looked out into the blackness of nowhere and nowhere near home. She thought of her boyfriend. What if he woke in the night and she wasn’t there? It wasn’t like her to be out so late. It wasn’t like her to get so, so drunk. What had she done? What had she done? Continue reading

And when I'm not bringing home the bacon, tooling around on social media or sheltering from the cold, I've been sucking up some pop culture. Let me tell you about it. Continue reading

There are loads of accounts I love but I felt that 483 pages is too long for one blog post. So I've curated a list of some of my faves. Check them out! Continue reading

On a gloomy day last winter, I was standing at my kitchen looking out into the vastness of my neighbour's backyard and I noticed it was populated by a bunch of evergreen trees. It occurred to me in that moment that I was so grateful for them. Against the grey skies, they stood tall and proud and lush with green. When everything else around them was dead or dormant, refusing to grow, they were steadfast in their aliveness. Though the rain and howling winds, evergreens are reliably vital. Continue reading

Some of you may know that this blog has been kicking around since 2009. That’s almost 8 years of writing in this little corner of the internet. Over that time, I have experimented with what I want this blog to be, how I could possibly make money from it and occasionally wondering whether the whole thing has been a terrible waste of time. Continue reading

The post-kids house is a very different beast to the pre-kids house. Two people’s stuff has multiplied to five people’s stuff and who knew preschoolers could accumulate SO MUCH STUFF. Continue reading

Mother's Day is just around the corner and though I love my children dearly, I'm not one of those mums who says, "Oh, I don't want gifts! My beautiful family are all I need." Nope. So I took the liberty of making a wishlist. Continue reading

On the 2nd of May, 2016, my beautiful friend, Annie, lost her son, Nicholas. He was just four years old. A mere baby – and the baby of the family. Just a little guy but in his wake, a gaping hole. And all I could think was, how will Annie keep from falling in? Continue reading

I don’t always feel this bad. I had a great summer. The sunshine certainly helps. But I never feel really, genuinely great. And I think that’s a problem. Continue reading

Shanne killing it on the left If you’ve been reading here for a while, you’ll know I keep my butt in shape by exercising three times a week at Cinch, a small group and personal training studio. Training there challenges me - often times it absolutely punishes me – and... Continue reading

So if you were following along on my 12 Week Transformation, you might be wondering what’s going on. My last check-in was a combined one for Week 7 and 8. What the hell happened? Did I find it all too hard and quit? Did I secretly go back to drinking... Continue reading

Here in Australia, we fancy ourselves as pretty progressive. We think of ourselves as 'the lucky country.' We pat ourselves on the back because we don't make women cover themselves when in public. We shake our heads at the way America just can't get its act together on gun control.... Continue reading

I’m late posting about last week because I started an online course in creative writing. Though I am still feeling a bit tired and a lot time poor, it seemed like now was the perfect time to begin. And I know exactly why. A while back, before I started this... Continue reading

When I was in my late teens and early twenties, I had an issue with my legs. Not in a medical sense. They functioned perfectly well – walking, skipping and occasionally, under extreme sufferance, running. I can scarcely recall even a bout of growing pains in my lower extremities and...

So if you read my blog post for Week 3, you would know that I finally made the leap and quit Coke. Again. If you’ve been reading the blog for a while, you’ll probably know I’ve quit Coke before. If you’re new to the blog, you might be thinking, “What... Continue reading

Last week, I announced that I am undertaking a 12 Week Transformation. By the time I turn 40 on October 6th, I expect to weigh a bit less, feel a lot stronger and have cemented lifestyle habits to carry on into my next 40 years. I am not starting from... Continue reading
