About Me

Hi There!

I am a 30-something working mother, wife, sister, aunty, daughter {insert every other label here}, just trying to find my way in the world. 2012 was a year of self-discovery for me. I started running and going to personal training and lost 12kgs in 6 months. I gave thanks for my family, our health, our jobs, our life. I tried to make the most of every day. While things have slacked off in the losing weight department and the giving thanks department, I am still trying.

In the last few years losing my father (61yo) and my uncle (62yo) has made me sit up and take stock of my life. There are no guarantees, so don’t leave it til “later” to figure out who you are, what you stand for, what makes you happy and how you want to live your life. Figure it out, and do it. Sooner rather than later, because there may not be a “later”.

I am terrified of flying and am prone to panic attacks while doing so. I get excited over new white goods and household furniture like computer desks. I have an amazing son who is navigating his own journey through primary school, sometimes learning the hard way. I blog about anything, everything and sometimes nothing, from politics to parenthood to infertility to health and fitness with the occasional ranty-pants thrown in.

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Great blog! Great style, well done. I know what it’s like to lose people you love before their time and what you wrote about leaving things til later resonated with me. Thanks and keep it up!

  2. As I struggle to keep my eyes open – after another 3.30am wake up for the day, then H at 4.30, I read your blog and say, Go girl!
    Life sure is tough. I learned at a very young age how precious life is and not to take a single person or day for granted. And although at times I moan about my lot, I know it could be a lot worse. Losing someone I thought I’d love forever, at age 21, without getting to say goodbye, also filled me with lots of regrets. But from then on I never go to bed angry and rarely end on a nasty note with someone – just in case.
    At the moment with 3 young children, I wonder how I get through every day, but I do. Thanks in part to my amazing husband, family and friends. Also, work keeps me feeling like I still have a brain, which I love.
    I will try to read this more often (with all my ‘spare time’ yeah right).
    Either way, those that are in our lives are there for a reason and although I wish I had more time to spend it with friends, those that I hold dear are still in my heart.
    And one day – I will be able to escape my bubble and I just hope I’ve done enough to have those nearest and dearest still around to share it with.
