Parenting is hard work. Any parent will tell you that. You have great days when you can’t seem to wipe the smile off your face because your heart is so full of love for these little people that call you ‘Mum’, and not so great days, when you want to hide in a cupboard with a packet of chocolate biscuits, a glass of wine and a pair of noise-cancelling headphones.

I initially started my blog as a bit of an outlet for my random thoughts. Therapeutic typing. But over the months, I’ve been fortunate to gain some wonderful followers, like Yes Peas Mumma, who not only read and seem to enjoy my random thoughts, but go to the effort to nominate me for a blogging award. Kind of of like a blogosphere high-five. It makes me happy. Continue reading
I’ve recently gone back to work, and whilst it has taken some getting used to again, I have realised that there are some seriously awesome benefits of working!
I can go to the bathroom by myself. This is awesome. Normally at home, I’m accompanied by my toddler, whether I like it or not. It’s either let him follow me in, or have him scream the house down when the door is closed, separating us. If he does follow me, it is then a battle to stop him from trying to spin the roll of toilet paper and pull off every sheet – this happens in about 10 seconds. He is like The Flash crossed with a miniature tornado. Zooms in, pulls everything apart, then disappears. Continue reading

I came across this idea recently on Karin’s blog at Calm To Conniption. It was obviously the time I needed to see it, and actually think about taking stock myself as it literally leapt off the page at me when I opened my email.
We’re now half way through the year. A year that has flown by at an almost supersonic pace. My birthday has been and gone. I felt like I needed to stop, take a breath and actually go through this list. Continue reading
Bank passwords. I hate them.
My internet banking requires two separate passwords to complete a transaction. One for a log in, another to make a transfer or payment. And the second password is changed each month. Oh yeah, and it can’t be one of the previous ten you have used. Continue reading
So I’m having a hard time at the moment trying to figure out where I should be. I am loving being at home looking after our youngest, and feel fortunate to be able to do so, but I am missing the mental stimulation of work. Not to mention the extra wage. Continue reading
1. Kids are smarter than you think. I found this out the other day when I discovered that my one year old had somehow reprogrammed the remote controls so now the TV remote operated the DVD player and vice versa. We’ve had the TV and DVD player for at least 6 years and had no idea this could be done. Until now… Continue reading
