I cheated!


I just don't know what to say or how to say it but it's true. I cheated. It was just a spare of the moment type of thing that actually happened. Actually I lie. I have been thinking about doing it though for many many many months maybe a year. Didn't think I could come up with some way or excuse for why. It's just.......... it was sooooooo tempting. Kind of like the forbidden Continue Reading

The overreacting mother


I am a mother and like many others we label ourselves many things like "Bad mum" "Mother of the year" or the  "I have no idea" mum. But one thing we don't label ourselves as is the overreacting mum. We overreact on so many things that are OK and we need to see that it is OK. I have noted down things that I have overreacted to over the years of having my girls. Overreaction: My god my kids Continue Reading

Getting pumped

dead lifts

I joined a gym. Not sure why it's not like I have much time but I'm making it 4-3 times a week. I'm not usually one that sweats much so it doesn't look like I'm going hard at it. But gosh darn it I am. I bloody threw up on my first day there and no sweat to be seen. I do tend to drool more than I sweat. That's what the towels is for right? One day it dawned on me. Doing stuff in the Continue Reading

Yes I bribe my kids with technology!


  And it fkn works. Every night there is a fight over the homework. She's tired from a full day of learning and education and having boyfriends (a whole other story apparently he is the only boy-friend she has). She is in Kindi. I'm tired from a full day at work and just want to get home and do nothing. Home readers, spelling lists, sight words, maths sheet yadda yadda yadda.  OK Continue Reading

So many things, So little time.


There's no doubt there are many frustrations for mums on a regular day.  I have gone through them myself. I have also been through many other frustrations that come with working 7 days a week and working most nights on the weekend. The weekly grocery shopping turns into the week and a half. Not so bad on the bank but bad when there are lunches to do and mouths to feed. We end up getting thai Continue Reading

Glamour girl fun


Disclosure policy 2 My kids love me to bits when I can get them something in the mail to trial. Something girly. Something new. And something different that no one has. My girls are very artsy unlike their mother. I bet they would write a better blog post then me. Plus I'm sure the 10 yr old is writing her own story at school about Most recent being a couple of stuff from the Glamour Girl Continue Reading

Missing the blogging world


I am totally missing the blogging world. Do you miss me? I miss the days that I could sit and do nothing but blogging. I miss the days when I could freely go to PR events and get stuff in the mail randomly. Although I have still got some random stuff in the mail from a company called Smiggles who are having red everything now. They have sparked a love in between my husband and Jaffers from the Continue Reading

They thought they would help me.


Little did they know that they were just marking the end of an era.   That's right my bratty tweens wrote me that letter. I found it on the night I had come home late after colouring my hair an awesome purple colour. I had had along day at work and wasn't ready to see that note. Some say that they are smart. Some say they have nice manners. I say they don't know me at ALL. The Continue Reading
