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

Sydney lights up

For my fellow piggies still living in Europe, occasionally I like to remind them that their home city of Sydney is pretty amazing.

We all know couples who have met in the workplace. It happens, when you spend the majority of your waking hours with the same people, and you even sometimes socialise with them.

Weddings, weddings, weddings

Today I’m back home in Oz, doing bridesmaids duties – and despite my boss pleading with me multiple times to take my leave at any other possible time than smack-bang over the top of three year strategic planning deadlines, I’m bloody happy to be here. I’m just hoping that despite my absence everything at work … Continue reading
