You should be 40

I really wanted to commemorate Frith’s 40th on Wednesday. If he were still here, the party would have been epic, probably lasting a full weekend. The thing is, I have no idea where we would have even been living – which state, which city or country town? So it’s hard to imagine what our lives…

Stuff’s been happening

I’m sitting at a table that is not my own, surrounded by people who can look after themselves, looking at treetops and the ocean, listening to the wind and the rain, and loving the buzz of activity around me. I am lucky enough to be in an AirBNB on the Sunshine Coast for two nights…

I’ve just spent half an hour with online tech support to get my blog all updated and working again! So let’s talk all things birthday week!

Mums Go Wild

There is something very sacred and special about going away with a group of mums. Add some Prosecco, good food, a blow up prop named Derek and a creek nearby, and wow what a recipe for a good time! Some school mums and I made the time (no one has time, you have to make…

My friend Kate

Kate and I have known each other since we were 3 years old. We went to kindy together, our mums are good friends, and so the friendship began. We have been at each other’s milestone birthdays for decades. I was at the birth of her first son, my Godson. She dropped everything when Frith died…
