Wtf? August already?

August. I don’t get how that’s possible. Didn’t the school year just start about five minutes ago? Is it just me or can anyone else feel Christmas creeping up? LOVING: soccer is over for the year. No more early bone-chillingly cold morning starts. You know the kind, when the wind chill drops the temperature by…

A response to IWANTEDWINGS: why feminism isn’t enough.

I came across this post recently, “A Response To Women Against Feminism”, read it, read it again, and loved it. {It was very deserving of it’s Freshly Pressed status}. In a nutshell, the author IWANTEDWINGS points out that it’s easy for the average woman born and educated in a highly developed Western country to reject…

In an instant.

It’s the kind of thing that pierces your day. One minute you’re busy vacuuming, washing, and folding, the next your phone beeps with a message notification. And amid the routine texts of “will you be home for dinner?” and “can you remember to get me x and y” you are suddenly faced with this: A…

Full disclosure? Hmmm…

A mad scientist friend offers you a chip that would allow you to know what the people you’re talking to are thinking. The catch: you can’t turn it off. Do you accept the chip? What an awesome question! That’s what the Daily Post Daily Prompt is today, and what a doozy it is. My first response was,…

That's me. With some dodgy last minute stickers.

Some big news!

Which would be awesome if I had different sized feet...

Cheers! It’s Friday!

It’s the weekend! School holidays start today! Yay! {Sarcasm levels detected to be very low}. While talking to another parent at school today we both agreed that there have been an insane amount of birthday parties so far this year. There’s no doubt that my five-and-a-half year old is far more popular than anyone else…

School Zones: the rules are there for YOUR children.

Believe it or not I don’t like to get all serious here, I much prefer the light hearted funny stuff. But as I mopped the floor for the third time this week {and yes, it’s only Wednesday}, and sifted through the usual threads and ideas of future blog posts tumbling around in my head, what…

An Ounce Of Home

You’re embarking on a yearlong round-the-world adventure, and can take only one small object with you to remind you of home. What do you bring along for the trip? I thought long and hard about this, which is today’s prompt in the Daily Post writing challenge. Typically my mind then went to work over-analysing the idea.…

Wordless Wednesday: love locks.

You may have heard recently that one of Paris’ famous “love lock” bridges had been weakened by the weight of all the padlocks. The bridge that had been referred to was the Pont Des Arts, which had a portion of the side reinforced. Last year on our trip to the beautiful city we stumbled onto…
