We’re THAT family

jumping

I believe that there are little notes in computers in various places around the world, warning people of my family. No, I’m not having a moment of paranoia. I believe this is the truth. Those computers are sitting at the reception desk at the hotels we’ve visited. I swear they’d say, “PUT THAT FAMILY IN THE MOST SECLUDED ROOM OF THIS HOTEL. WARNING. NOISY FAMILY ALERT.” Traveling with kids is…

How are the school holidays treating you? We’ve kept busy in an attempt to avoid the screams of “I’M BOOOOOOORED!” This week we’re heading down the coast to a little shack with my girlfriend Rebel and her kids.

What I’ve learned: Releasing a popular iPhone App

little-moments-app

A couple of days and a year ago, I released an App. The Little Moments App. I had such little expectations when I released the App that I actually hadn’t thought beyond releasing it. And when I say ‘little expectations’ I don’t mean that I didn’t love it, I was and am still in love with it, I mean that I knew it was awesome and that it was going…

The idea

cardigan

I cry every time I watch Toy Story 3, which seems to be a lot lately as the kids are obsessed with it. It’s the bit where Andy grows up and doesn’t need his toys anymore, so he gives them away. Oh man, I’m getting teary even now. I have to be all like, “Oh no, mama’s not crying. I just have something in my… eye.” I’m just not good…

Who were you in high school?

pink-hair

Social Media definitely makes the world smaller, doesn’t it? I have a friend Jodie. I’ll call her that because that’s her name. We met in preschool, and probably bonded over the fruit bowl. When I was in preschool the fruit bowl was shared and passed around the circle, each kid taking a piece and passing the bowl on. It would be a hygiene-nightmare in today’s world. From memory the bananas…

The Fat Mum Slim project

Recently when I was away traveling I was sitting at a group experience breakfast. There were three lizards on the table next to me, a lady with a snake to my right, a koala behind me and large birds perched on branches in front of me. There were also 25 other travelers also seated at tables, enjoying the same experience. Our host was an outspoken Aussie-to-the-bone ranger who had no…

This matters to me

rainbow

Yesterday as I drove along a big rainbow filled the sky. You know when you see one you often only see part of one, the end or middle is obscured by something… clouds, buildings, anything. This was big, and clear and it spanned across the whole sky. I was driving along to breakfast with my Ma and Sis and the rainbow just kept getting bigger and brighter as we drove….
