Challenge Accepted, Walking the Walk

September 2, 2014

Wisdom: The things in life you regret most are the ones you never did. A truth that resonates with me enormously. Confession: I was born a creative, musical type but also an anxious one, conundrum. I love participating; hate the idea of being watched. I love nothing better than live music shows but crowds make me so edgy, I […]

There Is Always Art

August 19, 2014

You know those mornings you wake up and the Fuck You Bird is already singing? “Those” mornings. The ones that don’t behave, you can’t put a foot right and just want to go back and start over? Yeah, those. Last week was all about sick kids so I’ve been keen to get them back into routine. I […]

Ass Buckle

August 12, 2014

Ever wished you could just change buttocks whenever it took your fancy? Well why the heck not- we want everything nowadays. Why be stuck with what your mama gave you when you could have a full suite of sweet arse? You’d have a brand new bottom collection in your wardrobe and accessorise according to outfit […]

August 5, 2014

Hibernation season is well and truly here. I took a nap and forgot to blog for a month. When I woke it was freezing…and I was hungry. My intro to a long overdue Twitchycorner Uncookery post!

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: […]
