Currently... a blogpost for February just scraping on in...

Reading: critique partner stories – this doesn’t leave room for any other reading, but benefits my brain in other ways. Writing: the space opera with the end which is still missing in action. Wearing: a t-shirt that is both stripy and printed with…

Happy new year! First blogpost in a few months...

So it’s 2018! Kicked off with a full(esque) moon, which I celebrated beneath on an island in Vietnam, drinking pina coladas on the porch  while my children slept inside being devoured by midges. Looked like they had chicken pox the next day. Good times.…

Here's 5 things on a Friday! Includes Playmobil, Stranger Things s2, solid (silver) financial advice...

1. This Ghostbusters Playmobil is awesome! I think my boys need it. Yep. They totally do. (As kids my siblings & I were NUTS about Playmobil and I hope to foster that same enthusiasm with my boys). 2. My precious: Andy Serkis reads Trump’s tweets as…

Loving & loathing for May! The 2017 edition.

The 2017 edition… IN Sheridan bed linen. Am forming a theory that this stuff is the bomb. It’s not cheap but the good news is they frequently have sales, and they have outlets too. Free shipping & you can use Afterpay to do installments too. It’s very…

Reading list, 2017 so far - a sad start to the year with only 5 books! My May Resolution is to read more...

I was just looking back at some old journal/blog posts of mine, and my 2011 reading list blew my mind. I read, like, a million books. Largely because we spent 3 months travelling (oh so much reading time!) – I felt very jealous of my 2011 Self. I have…

A movie, a birthday, a jersey: Guardians of the Galaxy vol 2 totally exceeded my expectations!

We went to see Guardians of the Galaxy vol.2 on Monday night and you guys! It was so enjoyable, I had such a good time watching it. Really funny and satisfying. I didn’t have high expectations for it, tbh, I suppose because it’s a sequel and the first one…

Monday afternoon. It’s raining + windy + grim outside. I think we got all of April’s rain in the last 24 hours. And it’s been lovely. Very autumnal. The first cold of the season always is! (Then it keeps on keeping on, and I quickly turn to despair, and…

STOP USING "POP OF COLOUR" FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS KALEIDOSCOPIC

You know how people get this irrational hatred for certain celebrities? I kind of get that with phrases. Only mine is rational. Totally rational. Because they’re being overused*. So, here are my offending articles of wordisms, in approximate order of…

Latest report on my infinite homework! I'm actually honestly super really truly done with this book.

It’s been coughcoughmumble since I did one of these updates. Luckily these things aren’t graded, huh. Although honestly, there isn’t much to say about my infinite homework except: toiling ever onwards. Neil Gaiman said: “This is how you do it: you sit…
