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

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

And so I begin Week 9. Life has been busy, as life tends to be, but I admit it’s been overwhelming me these last few weeks. As well as training four times a week, I am also doing a 5 week creative writing course. It’s important to me that I... 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

I began my 12 week transformation around the time that a new film, Embrace, was due to be released. The documentary follows Body Image Activist Taryn Brumfitt’s journey to change the way we feel about our bodies and how we view ourselves. The basic premise is that we need to... 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

Oh, life! You really do conspire against my writing career, don't you? I know, I know, I have no-one to blame but myself. I need to make the time to write with the same dedication I make the time to snack/rest/snack/nap/snack/Snapchat/ text/snack/Youtube. And snack. But here I am, writing for... Continue reading

[source] There’s a revolution in my pants and I need to tell the world about it. I am 39 years old. I have been wearing underpants all my life. Aside from some circa late 1970’s photographs that point to a time when I appeared to prefer a pantsless existence, my... Continue reading

I don’t remember making a conscious choice about co-sleeping. I was never particularly for or against. In fact, the only thing I was truly and deeply for was SLEEP – and for this reason, I was willing to do whatever worked. With all three of my babies, that involved middle... Continue reading

Tahnee, our wedding photographer, is amazing. She has an eye for capturing organic moments. The sneak peek of our wedding photos proved to me that Tahnee had completely nailed the brief which was basically "just do what you do." But in a sea of wedding photographers, the reason I chose...

Around this time every year, I find myself lamenting a lack of funds. I use phrases like "flat broke" to describe our financial situation. And while everything is relative, the reality is that we are not flat broke and lack of funds means we probably won't get the family iPad... Continue reading
