Why don’t you do something good?

The other day I was at the local shopping centre, and it wasn’t very busy. I had a trolley full of groceries and was headed for the escalators down to the carpark. At the same time there was a woman coming up the escalator, and a man walking past us. Just the three of us….

Keeping it local: Monty’s Strawberries

One of the hardest things of adjusting to our new life up here was finding all our new places to eat, visit and buy food from. I know it’s not a big deal, but life’s too short for bad food. It’s also an exciting thing about living in a new place, happening across new places….

I quit today.

I totally quit today. I’m done with it. I’ve written this post seven times over and deleted it {because it’s filled with first world problems and I know someone will probably take offense to it}. I filled the page with words or rants at all the things I’m cranky at. I’m cranky because it’s school…

October Photo A Day 2014: Laura Blythman

Well, I’m equal parts excited and nervous about revealing this October Photo A Day list to you today. Nervous because the prompts are something I’ve never tried before, but something I’ve wanted to do since launching photo a day so many moons ago. And excited because one of my VERY favourite artists has designed the…

Grandma’s yummy no-bake chocolate slice

My grandma was a great baker. She made the most delicious peanut butter cookies and pumpkin scones. I’d love to say that this recipe is hers, but I don’t even know which grandma owns this one. My neighbour emailed it to me with the title ‘Grandma’s no-bake slice’ so I’m not sure which grandma made…

Letter to Luella: One year old

My dear, sweet Luella, I need to start by saying just how much I love you, because the love I have for you is immeasurable. It’s huge. Gaga {grandma} said to me the other day, “I think you’re enjoying Lulu more than you did with Lacey.” She whispered it actually, because it is kinda taboo,…

On a side note: Beans with lemon and fresh

Oh gooooooood, I’m so tired with thinking of things to cook for dinner. I go through spurts of excitement over preparing meals for my family, and there are other times that I just want to serve up a bowl of weetbix and call it a day. We’ve got my Ma living with us at the…

SEA-CHANGE

The story of our sea change

Just over two years ago we packed up a truck and moved from the city to a little suburb on a hill in the country. We lived in a two-storey apartment in Tamarama within walking distance to three beaches {heck, we could SEE the beach from our balcony and dining room – you did have…

Flourless Chocolate Cake Recipe

Brought to you by Western Star. I’ve learned {from sleepovers and visiting friends} that you’re either a butter family, or a margarine family. We’re in the butter family category. My Grandad was a big butter lover, he’d slather thick slabs of butter on his toast in the morning and I’d watch on in amazement. I’m…

So, I went to Melbourne and this

Brought to you by Olympus. My heart just feels so full right now. This week I flew down to Melbourne for the last of three lunches with readers {I’d love to do more, but at this stage we don’t have any planned}. When we first talked about having reader lunches, I can’t tell you how…
