I was so slow getting into the Christmas spirit this year that by the time I decided that maybe, just maybe I might want to get a tree or something, it was like, um, the week before. So, forget the tree. Then I thought it would be nice to DIY some decorations or something, and [...]
Getting an early start on my Year of Creative Pursuits, I’ve been on a little bit of a DIY roll recently. I’ve amassed a small heap of cardboard boxes, tubes, egg cartons, glass jars, catalogues, etc. just for a time like this, and given Kaylin’s three-minute interest in everything, they’ve turned out remarkably handy.
So I was very lucky to meet and interview Teresa Palmer a while ago – she was really nice, genuine and great to talk to. Here’s a link to the story. Watch out for this Aussie actress because she’s going to have a big 2013, especially with ‘Warm Bodies’ being touted as possibly [...]
Came across this article a while back, The Parenting Trap, which basically says that schools are ruining kids’ childhoods, and the education system is just one huge rat race that parents are pushing their kids (and themselves) through, in the delusion that only by getting into the best schools, learning three languages and participating [...]
Until a few weeks back, I’d never roasted marshmallows over a fire before. What a city girl. It’s actually pretty fun (and yummy) when your marshmallow isn’t on fire. I don’t think I’m very good at it, but I was rather fascinated by the whole random let’s-start-a-fire-and-hang-out aspect. In a wheelbarrow, using branches, twigs [...]
The new ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ poster is awesome, even if it looks a little too much like this:
Same, same, but different?
Looking forward to the new Star Trek movie, because the first one was so good I actually saw it in the cinema twice. And I usually don’t watch [...]
Having been a work-at-home mum for more than 2.5 years now, I think I’m experienced enough to say that the most important tip for enjoying motherhood isn’t patience and good time management, even though those are great and essential things to have, it’s this: Turn off your laptop.
I don’t know about you, but every [...]
The first really warm day of spring, and almost everyone headed straight for the beach. Seriously. It was a Sunday, and it was like the whole kampung (village) had come out to play. It took us forever to find a patch of sand to call our own.
But, oh it was glorious. I love [...]
You know how people always say, don’t give up on your dreams. Go after what you want, because dreams do come true?
Well, nobody wants to be the jerk that breaks the bad news: Not all dreams come true. Sometimes, no matter how hard you try, you just don’t have what it takes. Go watch [...]
