11 cheer-up links


The night had started out so well. I went to a meet-up of Melbourne bloggers that just so happened to be held two blocks away from my house, which meant not only could I walk there with no “I’m late and the traffic is hell” stress whatsoever, I could also indulge in a glass of…

Shake it off


I want to be like Rowley’s mum. This is Rowley and his mum: I want to be the kind of fun mum who does daggy dancing with her kids, even badly choreographed dancing, in public. Especially in public. I don’t want to be self-conscious about my body, or my dance moves, or what I look…

Book Club

I am in a book club. Well, I have joined one, and our first get-together is scheduled for later this month. I’m really looking forward to it. I’ve never been in a book club before, and I don’t know the ladies in this book club very well (or at all). Do you have any advice…

The tunnel


Turns out I have carpal tunnel syndrome. It’s a kind of repetitive strain injury in the hand and wrist, so people in jobs like mine that require a lot of typing are likely candidates. Add to that, pregnancy has been known to bring it on and, yep, I’ve had it since the start of my…
