All the years I rented, not having much control over my space or the power to improve it even when it verged on unlivable, I thought buying my own home would be amazing. I was going to paint every wall a different colour and put up pictures! I’d knock out walls, re-tile the bathroom, install [...]
I know everyone’s already posted their holiday photos but we were staying at Mum and Dad’s and I only just mustered the energy to pull all the photos off my camera. We had a quiet Christmas, a claim Nick would object to coming from a small family, and spent the day with my immediate family, [...]
But we hope you have the opportunity to enjoy yours, and if you aren’t able to have a holiday I hope you can glean a few moments to look after yourself.
This year has been really tough for me. I’m not the kind of person to tell a whole year to sod off because [...]

Tonight I’m giving the gifts we bought in Melbourne to my family, as well as Mum’s birthday present because she was born on this fabulous day. I am pretty sure none of them will check my blog today, so I’m going to post photos!
My birthday was on Saturday and Nick bought me Prismacolors! I’d been wanting some for a long time but was always put off by the cost. They are very lovely to use, but I have to be so delicate with them in case the leads break. I’m so paranoid, I’m almost handling them with white [...]
