    Social media life

    Wednesday, April 19, 2017

    Social media life is not real life. Instagram is a strange land where people are constantly being photographed from behind looking at vistas, wearing bikinis in The Maldives and wearing floppy hats at music festivals. And Facebook? Well, it seems to have turned into a family photo album. I am just as guilty of this as […]

    Motherhood so far

    Friday, April 7, 2017

    I am one month into this whole motherhood caper and wow. It’s one of the few experiences I have had where all the cliches are true. I feel like a hermit crab with no shell, all soft and vulnerable. Also very hermit-y as I rarely leave the house. The weird thing is that I actually like it. […]

    Work break-up

    Thursday, April 6, 2017

    A couple of my friends have recently been through what I would dub a ‘work break-up’; when you leave a role in a distressing or unresolved way. The psychological damage is profound. I have been through it and am currently seeing my mates go through it. Why is it so upsetting? It comes down to […]

Suggestibility

In hypnotism, the practitioners play on a person’s ‘suggestibility’ (ie their openness to influence). I have come to the conclusion that I am way suggestible. I have been binge watching the first season of Outlander and, over the last two weeks, my internal voice has adopted a Scottish accent and has replaced ‘do you know’ with ‘d’ye […]

Being yourself vs being a brand

I am not an idiot. I know that a lot of the stuff I write on here is probably killing my career potential. No one is going to hire a CEO who once wrote a post about sneaky anal sex, or internet dating, or crippling anxiety. I once declared to a group of conservative country […]

Have you heard of Helpling?

It’s a new website where you can find reliable, experienced cleaners in your area. This is so cool. I remember getting a cleaner when I lived with my ex. It was the result of many, many arguments that finally resulted in, ‘Fine, let’s pay someone!’ Our cleaner lasted all of two sessions. She was a […]

Who are the coolest people in the world?

If you had to change nationality, what would you change to? I am very happy to be born Australian because I love Aussies’ laconic sense of humour, willingness to help people, love of sunshine, beaches and BBQs and of course, there’s AUSTRALIA. I mean, have you seen this place?! Having said that, there’s plenty we […]

What not to name your kid

My friend Mel is an English teacher. As such, she has met a lot of kids and has a healthy respect for the Queen’s English. She wrote the very entertaining essay below based on her experiences. I asked her about the worst names she has come across and she said, “A few stupid names for […]

The questionable joys of early pregnancy

Ahhh crying and vomiting. Yes, that’s what you feel like doing. Inspirational quotes on Pinterest make you weep, an especially beautiful day makes you teary, and anyone being remotely nice to you causes unbidden eye precipitation. On top of this, there’s the never ending nausea. You feel like you have a really bad hangover all the […]
