A meal on us

#this post is sponsored We did something tonight that we've never done. A simple thing, that families all over Australia do and probably don't think a whole lot about. We sat together and we ate Chinese food. Sounds simple, but for many years I've been the only one who eats it. Meaning that we don't eat it often. Or really, at all. Except on those odd nights I might be home by myself, when I may have indulged in a takeaway. But I can count those opportunities on one hand... Growing up … [Continue reading...]

I miss you too

I miss you too

  She cries and holds me, clinging on like a small toddler, not the long limbed tween she is. "Don't leave me mummy", she sobs as the tears roll down her face. "Take me with you, please", she begged. Then she followed up by the killer for every working mum, "I miss you mummy". My heart is breaking and all I want to do is scoop her up, take her home and curl up on the couch together for the rest of time. Or at least the rest of the day.  It's not practical and it's not going to … [Continue reading...]

I’m setting you a challenge…

I'm setting you a challenge...

Tonight I went on to two company Facebook pages and left them a message. “That’s not such a big deal”, I hear you thinking, “I do that sort of thing all the time.” But here’s the thing… I left them compliments. Yep. You read that right. And I have to admit, I felt good after […]

Leaving a legacy

Leaving a legacy

They say that the only thing we leave behind when we’re gone, are the feelings and memories that we’ve entrusted with those we love. Sure, if we’re smart and far more organised than me, we leave a will (note to self, organise will) and our possessions are divided up amongst our loved ones, but do […]

Five tips for working with bloggers

Five tips for working with bloggers

A while ago I wrote a post about how bloggers could make some small changes to help them work with brands (if they so wanted). If you’re interested, you can check it out here. Written with my PR hat on, there were some basic things, easy things to fix, that drive me nuts when I’m […]

The first week back is always hard

he first week back is always hard

The first week back at school after holidays is always hard. A return to routine, while welcome, is exhausting. Suddenly there is no option to take to bed with an iPad if the world gets too hard, days are long and they must be endured with all the social niceties that tend to drop to […]

Connectedness. Is it a good thing?

Connectedness. Is it a good thing

Last week I sat on a panel that spoke about social media and change. It’s a pretty broad topic, and we bounced about from change from an internal communications perspective, to change in the sense of organisational repositioning right through to the value that social media can bring in inspiring societal and political change. It […]

Getting organised

Getting organised

Half a year, more than half a year in fact, is done. We’ve broken the back of it. Winter solstice has been and gone, and winter school holidays finished. School tunics have been dry-cleaned, schools shoes shined and I even ironed (I know, I was surprised too) her school shirts. We’ve made some changes from […]

This tween world

This tween world

The squeal is ear piecing, as she storms from the room, slamming her bedroom door behind her. We look at each other, knowing that neither of us has any idea what’s going on. We wait. Maybe she’ll come out of her own accord. The squeals continue; it’s clear she’s trying to get our attention. Requests […]

It’s ok to not love motherhood. Really.

It's ok to not love motherhood.

I read an article a while ago about how to enjoy mothering more. How to love motherhood. There may have even been an exclamation mark, but then again, maybe that’s my memory adding that emphasis. I’m not going to link to it, because frankly, it was rubbish. There I said it. Rubbish. Because here’s the […]
