The Heating Wars

My husband and I have very different ideas of when and how to use our heater. I am a naturally warm person, whereas my husband claims he’s cold blooded and is therefore always freezing. Every year from around May until the end of August, our household experiences what I like to refer to as “The …

Bathroom Hardware

My new bathroom is going to be epic. I’m in the midst of designing our new bathroom for when we renovate it in six months time. It’s going to be massive and feature a deep two person bath and a two person shower with dual shower heads. There will also be two basins so that …

Childproof Bathroom

We’re having twins! I can’t believe it! My husband and I have been trying for a baby for almost a year now and we can finally tell everyone that we’re having not one, but two children! We are over the moon and are so ready to start our family together. The day I found out …

Inked Mother

I got my first tattoo when I was fourteen years of age. It was a “stick n poke” done by my friend in her garage whilst her parents weren’t home. It got infected, obviously, and I had to tell my mum what had happened a while later so that she could take me to the …

A Grand Finale

Look, on a very visceral level, I did enjoy The Guise of Guy-Stalker.

Windowless Room

My family and I just moved into an old house in a nice suburb. The house is quite different and not in a good way. We are planning to knock it down once the money from the sale of our old house comes through. I think that’ll be a couple of months. I hope it’s …

Recipe For Disaster

This just in: the new office break room resembles a youth hostel kitchen. Not that there’s anything wrong with that – I’ve got nothing against the backpacker experience – but there’s a time and a place for that, and I’d argue that it’s not in the head office of a high-end cookbook publishing house.   …

Cooling for the Club

It’s important to stretch before and after physical activity. Tesla doesn’t understand, what with him being a cat and all, but he does a lot of stretching anyway so I hope that makes up for it being less targeted. Got to admit, when Clara was going from door-to-door handing out copies of Exercising With Your …
