new stamps for the new passport

new stamps for the new passport

I get to give my new passport a go on Thursday. This passport is the fourth one I’ve had in 14 years. I’ve had two Australian ones and two American ones. I still need yet another new Australian one. I have also moved nine times since then but that’s not the point of this. I […] more…

strawberry kisses

I got a surprise strawberry sticker on my brown bag containing my veggie sandwich today and it was super cute. It wasn’t expensive but it made the place I go to, with the mom and daughter combo working there, even more likeable. That cute touch of randomly adding a sticker to my brown bag made my […] more…
where is my home?

where is my home?

It’s a question that really can’t be answered but one that I think about often. I grew up in Melbourne, Australia. I lived there until I was 22. My entire family is still there and there is something about our country that never lets you forget that it is always home. There are even songs about […] more…
a few moments from 2013

a few moments from 2013

I am going completely self-absorbed and post some photos that capture some of the highlights of the year in random order. I am letting this post serve as a reminder of some of the kick ass times that were had in 2013.  It is truly impossible to have every memorable moment captured in this album […] more…

fancy, fancy

I’ve never been a girly girl. Sneakers, jeans and black t-shirts are typically what you will find me wearing.  I also suck at putting on makeup and doing hair so I have short hair to make it somewhat easier. I sort of try but not really. I guess it boils down to being lazy? OK […] more…
a follow up to that xmas post of yore

a follow up to that xmas post of yore

I published a post last year before Xmas that was all sorts of fucked up. Unintentionally fucked up, but fucked up nonetheless. I was nervous, REALLY nervous about spending Xmas with my ex husband and his family and his girlfriend and I wrote about it. I truly didn’t mean to piss anyone off; I write/vent […] more…

resolutions

It’s getting closer to that time of year when people decide that the new year will be the time that they will be able to finally make those changes they have been striving for. I made two this past year. One was a weird one – it was to let my eyebrows grow. When I […] more…
busy fingers

busy fingers

I need to be busy.  I don’t like sitting around and doing nothing as oddly enough I don’t like the feeling of  relaxing. I feel like it brings me closer to being dead. Yes, I have issues. On the flip side, as much as I like to be busy, I need more time than most […] more…
parent/teacher – wait, i’m not the kid?

parent/teacher – wait, i’m not the kid?

It’s on nights like tonight when I have to do a double take and remember that yes, I’m the parent. It’s not that I ever actually forget but sometimes I feel like I’m still a kid and somewhere along the way life just fast forwarded to certain moments.  Parent/teacher conferences are some of those moments.
