Parenting advice from the {ahem} real experts

Parenting is hard. It’s rewarding, and joyful, and beautiful, but also… it’s hard. I was listening to the radio yesterday and Sheryl Crow came on, and she started singing, “No one said it would be easy…” and then, “But no one said it would be this hard.” I know my hard isn’t as hard as…

Health and well-being types, look away now. This is very naughty and no good for anyone, unless you’re someone who is wanting to set your taste-buds on fire and delight the people in your life. This is as naughty as them come; lashings {like, seriously, lashings!} of butter, white crusty bread, and CHEESE. But it’s…

IKEA Sprutt: Style ideas and adventures at

Yesterday I went to IKEA. You know when’s a good time to go to Ikea? Not Sunday mornings. Everyone is all about getting their cheap breakfast and storage items. We arrived a few minutes early, because it’s us and we’re always early, so it wasn’t yet opened. Across the entrance to the showroom they had…

An experiment in asshole-ry

I am sorry. This post contains the word asshole. Repeatedly. It’s not something I regularly do here, so I hope you don’t mind. If you do, I am thinking maybe it’s best if you pour yourself a cuppa and step away from the blog. I promise sunshine-y things tomorrow. I love the internet. I freaking…

Our Tasmania Travel Diary

Letter to Lulu: Eighteen months old

Dear Luella, I don’t know where this time has gone. I really don’t. I blinked and you’re 18 months old. I’m not going to talk about wanting a pause button, about wanting to stop time, because that’s all I seem to talk and think about. And it’s just not going to come true. Instead I’m…

It’s cake week in our family. Maybe something was in the water, but all our birthdays {not mine} seem to fall into the next week or so. I call it cake week. This year I’m being sensible. I’ve only made one cake. And I made it a good one. I don’t like to make the…
