Goodbye Rainbow Unicorns

Rainbow Unicorn FI

Well… *B lets out a big breath* here I am… back again. Life has a way of sitting you on your butt and forcing you to think and think and think, doesn’t it? I had surgery (ankle reconstruction) nearly 4 weeks ago now. It has been quite an interesting time of healing and reflection and crochet. I haven’t posted much here, thanks to some fairly epic pain drugs that addled my brain. The joke around here was that I was {Read More}

Generosity – Part 1

Generosity 1

So… I have had my ankle reconstructed. You can read about it all here…  I just thought I would share how we have been faring since then. Firstly, I am in a bit of shock. I had no idea how impacting this operation would be. I know that probably sounds dumb, but I did not realise that I was not to put any weight down onto my foot. Neither did I fully appreciate how difficult it would be to get {Read More}

The Story Of The Ankle

The Ankle

So… the ankle… MY foot… let me tell you the story… It begins with a cat… Back at the turn of the century, my cat was in a fight and developed an infection above his eye. I had to take him to the vet. When carrying the cat in a precarious cardboard box into the vet clinic, I fell into a small pot hole in the grass, and sprained my ankle. It took a while to heal, but it did. {Read More}


Bugs 1

A few months ago, we had a ‘Bug Storm.’ These little bugs were everywhere. I thought someone was throwing pebbles at our house, but, when I walked outside, I saw thousands upon thousands of these little bugs flying and crashing about. Before the ‘Bug Storm,’ the weather had been so hot and dry, then… a morning of delicious rain brought on the hatching of these bugs. The bugs themselves were beautiful. Kahki green with fabulous orange underbellies. I googled and {Read More}

Convergence: Your Best Days Are Ahead of You

Convergence 1

This is a sponsored Post My friends and I are at an age when we have begun to talk about the mystical phenomenon called ‘Convergence.’ You know, that magical moment when all of your past experiences make sense and you finally, FINALLY know what you are meant to do with the rest of your life?

10 Last Minute Nearly Free Valentine’s Day Ideas

10 Last Minute Valentine's Day Ideas

Okay, so tomorrow is Valentine’s Day… are you all ready for it? We always have a bit of a ‘discussion’ a week or two before Valentine’s Day to establish whether we are ‘doing something’ or not. There was that fateful year, when we decided we wouldn’t exchange gifts, which was fine, but… I had bought a card and wrote a long soppy note in it, but Mr Cool hadn’t done that for me – dog house for HIM! Then there {Read More}

Stills: A Weekly Collection 5/52

5 - Sunset Through Dirty Window

The usual ebb of life has begun and I feel I can finally take a deep breath and get back into the ‘normal’ things I do… I find it hard to sit and write when the kids are around, not for any other reason, than I would rather be a mummy/wife/daughter/friend in the holidays and do some IRL things. We moved right smack bang in the middle of the end of year hustle last year, then Christmas hit, then this {Read More}

3 Things Getting Me Ready for 2014


We don’t speak often of 2012 around these parts. It was a hard and torturous year. 2013 held some shining moments but left us wanting more. So… I am getting myself geared up for a really amazing 2014. I think what I have realised after going through the past two years is that I have choices to make and I have some dreams to chase. This is the year to get on to those things. The inter webs being a {Read More}

B’s Daily 5 for 2014

B's Daily 5

Happy New Year! I cannot believe it is 2014! Can you? I am a bit of a shocker at writing really long and complicated ‘New Year’s Resolutions.’ I have been known to categorise my goals and then kind of muddle my way through them throughout the year. But, more often than not, I get to December 1st and I begin beating myself up for not kicking my goals throughout the year. This is not to say that I don’t achieve {Read More}
