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

On January 22, 2009, I started this blog. Thousands and thousands of my words live on this website. Many of them feel like they were written a lifetime ago. And also, just yesterday. Continue reading

I seem to recall Bren and I tossed around the idea of four kids in the early stages of our relationship when we had all the love for a big family and none of the reality. We had both grown up with just one sibling and both of us craved the slightly more chaotic but what we perceived to be closer dynamic of a bigger family. In the end, we decided on three kids as being just enough chaos but without having to buy a van for transport. Continue reading

We have three children. Two boys. One girl. Brendon and I are raising all three of them to be feminists. Continue reading

I expected to cry on her first day. I’m not entirely sure why because I certainly didn’t when either of the boys began school but I wondered whether maybe sending my last child – my baby! – off to school might crack open a little well of bittersweet. But no, I was as dry-eyed as ever and frankly, a little irritated when she clung fiercely to Daddy’s neck when we tried to leave. We had a kid-free coffee date to get to damn it! Continue reading

If my 2017 had a name, it would not be “The Year of Prolific Blogging.” In fact, I managed a grand total of 14 blog posts this year. Even after promising myself – and you – that I would try to blog at least once a week, I barely wrote... Continue reading

“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

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
