Does this behaviour impress you?

Does this behaviour impress you?

There is a masculinity crisis in Australia. Well, that’s what you would think if you had been reading the newspapers in Sydney. The city has seen an increase in drunken violence, resulting in yet another young man’s death. Men, intoxicated and feeling invincible, lash out without warning and without cause. With one punch to another … Continue reading

New Year’s Non Resolutions

New Year’s Non Resolutions

I don’t believe in new years resolutions. By my thinking, if you want to do something, why not just do it? What difference does it make if it’s the first of January or the 20th of September? Approximately none, that’s how much. The only difference is that you and a million other people will likely … Continue reading

Knowing when to quit

Knowing when to quit

According to the Oxford Dictionary the definition of quit is “to leave a place, usually permanently”. In the real world, we tend to use the term “quit” a little more liberally.

Wouldn’t know the first thing about it. Define my eyebrows? Could you define “define” please? I’ll admit, I was lazy. Too lazy to learn … Continue reading

Why the big secret?

Why the big secret?

Guess what? I’m 6 weeks pregnant. SURPRISE! But even as I write this, I’m not sure I’m going to push the publish button. Maybe I’m better off saving this post for when I’ve cleared this mystical and sacred 12 week scan and there’s a slightly better chance that things will be ok. The thing is, … Continue reading

Getting somewhere

Getting somewhere

My days are currently all blurring into each other. Sometimes it feels a bit like swimming upstream. Keeping on top of everything is an impossibility. As soon as one thing is crossed off the To Do list, another two or three things get added onto the end. On top of a full time job and … Continue reading
