Aren’t they pretty? Last month, when I went to Melbourne for the Olympus lunch, I was given lots of beautiful gifts from the ladies who attended the lunch. One of them was a beautiful box from a girl named Cara. I wasn’t expecting gifts, and especially not that many, so I was struggling to fit…

Head space

Do you meditate? My mind runs at a million miles an hour and when I’ve tried to meditate in the past, it’s gone something like this. Me: Think of nothing. Try and think of nothing. Me: Oh, something! Me: You’re supposed to be thinking of nothing. Be all zen, lady! Me: Nothing, nothing, nothing, I’m…

Trick or treat: How to make Halloween gifts

Brought to you by Allen’s Lollies. I know when it comes to Halloween, some people are into it and some people aren’t. I guess because we live in Australia and it’s not as widely celebrated as other parts of the world, it hasn’t quite taken off. Our little neighbourhood is a hive of activity on…

The very best diaries for 2015

Would it be sad to reveal that I already bought my diary for next year? Yep, I’m a sad sack. I did. I bought one. Like a kid in a candy store, I went and bought one three whole months out from the New Year. Because I like a little drama and suspense, I won’t…

Bill Granger’s Banana Butterscotch

I can’t master the art of banana consumption in our house. Well, we know how to eat them, but I haven’t yet perfected the art of knowing just how many to buy. We either have too many, or not enough. Luella has just started to love bananas and will jam a whole one into her…

Little Moments App: Let’s talk Android!

Hello! Today I wanted to share a little bit about a non-iPhone/iPad version of the Little Moments App, and where my thinking is at with it all. I get asked daily about the Android/Windows version, so it makes sense to address it. This is long. Pour a cup of tea {or vodka} and consume it…

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….
