Heaven Holds a Place

July 8, 2014

Sometimes oldest friends are the best. The ones who knew us before we became who we are now. There at the best and worst of times, the thick and thin. The dear ones we pick up with again like no time has passed at all, thumbing our noses at the truth. There’s that laugh, that […]

EWF14: Mixtape Memoirs

June 6, 2014

Attending consecutive days of a writing festival, family life and packing for a house move surely don’t mix. I knew this but all the same I’d rather share festival highlights than focus on loco logistics. Starting with the most recent and working backwards. (To the best of my underslept, addled memory.) Wednesday night was Mixtape […]

Emerging Writers’ Festival 2014 #EWF14

May 31, 2014

I’m in full throttle of the festival and it’s been very educational. The schedule has been fairly relentless, which apart from being quite a lot to take in and note, means blogging it so far has been quite the challenge. (This very post comes to you via smartphone, hope it looks alright as I’m already employing […]

Back to the 80’s Movies

May 20, 2014

We have the classic tradition of Friday night pizza and family movie night at our house. Usually it’s an animated flick but recently I decided we were ready to branch out and (re)visit some classic 80’s action/adventure favourites. Spielberg was all up in that business. Mr 14: Why does everything have to be 80’s? Me: […]

Sparkly Mother’s Day Weekend

May 13, 2014

This weekend was full of colour and sparkle. Today I’ll spare you the family feastings and concentrate on just the things my girl and I did together. But first, here’s the patchwork style dress I bought and decided to wear to the Sunday eat-a-thon festivities. It’s new but my mother did ask me if it […]

Mr Twitch’s First Ever Guest Post: Philips PerfectCare Aqua Review

May 6, 2014

I generally do not iron unless I have a job interview. Given this has happened- I don’t know- twice in the last ten years, when I was offered an iron to review here I politely declined, saying “a what, now?” When my husband, aka Mr Business Shirt Stickler found out, there were words: What was […]

Dear Sussan, I’m A Mother and I Don’t Get Your Mother’s Day Ads

May 5, 2014

I have a weekend ritual of attempting to read the weekend newspaper magazines from start to finish. It doesn’t always work out but I usually get to see the first few pages at least. Naturally there’s a lot of Mother’s Day marketing right now. The inside front page of the Good Weekend revealed a big […]

Domestic Bliss It Ain’t  

April 29, 2014

I floated the idea for this post on my Facebook page about a huge aspect of family life and boy did it find some kindred out there. This post nearly wrote itself. I love my family, I do. I also hear there are people who love keeping house, taking pride in all that goes with […]
