Because I am running the Camden Garden Festival, the Crystal Festival is on and Camden Park House is open (it only opens for one weekend a year). We haven’t even gotten […]

  • Why a Bali villa holiday is awesome for baby mamas

    Tuesday, August 28, 2018

    Did you know that you can hire baby equipment in Bali? Yep, you can. There are a number of baby hire services that not only hire out prams, cots, pool fences and hire chairs, they also offer nanny and babysitting services. These same services can arrange nappies, formula, baby food and even a personal chef […]

  • Thoughts on happiness

    Tuesday, August 14, 2018

    I have become noticeably happier since I stopped reading women’s magazines. I rarely go shopping, and if I do, I don’t spend more than I can afford. I try not to shop from boredom or a sense of unworthiness (buying things to make me feel more socially acceptable, or cool, or professional). I care a […]

  • Stay away from The Jones’

    Thursday, August 9, 2018

    I have been thinking about The Jones’, that mythical family who drive the status anxiety of the aspirational. Why would you want to keep up with wasteful, greedy mega-consumers? The Jones live in a mansion, drive new cars, have shiny white teeth and golden fake tans. They holiday often and throw fancy parties. But really? […]

  • Sacred places

    Tuesday, August 7, 2018

    I have always been a sucker for a crystal shop, a psychic reading and a tarot deck. As a godless heathen, these things allow me to connect to a sense of spirituality. Same goes for yoga, swimming, walking and Goddess cards. I am a tragic hippie cliche. Nevertheless, I think we all yearn for a […]

We will remember them

ANZAC Day is sad. It makes me think about suffering and destruction and The Last Post always makes me cry. Despite the fact that my life has been blessedly free from war, I imagine the pain of the people who have been touched by it’s cold, bloody hands. Like many Australians, both of my grandfathers […]

Lisa’s Deal of the Week: Cruisy

Lisa’s Deal of the Week When it comes to cruising, there are plenty of agents in the sea offering cabins for next to nothing which, funnily enough, also tend to be next to the engines or akin to a matchbox in size. Every now and then though, a deal comes up that includes a cabin […]

I bought a vintage caravan

This was not a smart financial decision but just look at it…   What’s not to love? I am going to do it up and then we can all go on a retro road trip together. Maybe we can even go back in time? Incidentally, does anyone know a good caravan mechanic? Or someone who […]

Melbourne: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

There’s nothing like a 100 year storm to make a trip memorable. The Future Husband and I were just minding our own business when the skies opened up and emptied the freezer section on our heads. We were walking back from the Queen Victoria Markets and the weather was looking a bit shady, but hey, […]

Ethspagnol

I have an optimism problem. It’s getting to the point where my colleagues are making fun of me because my standard response is, ‘It’s easy!’. When I started Spanish lessons with the beautiful Ana at The Spanish Cat, I thought I would nail it. Not only was I going to breeze through the classes, I […]

Law of the Laundry

Law of the Laundry By Genevieve Frew When travelling, no matter how free the spirit or unplanned the journey, there are certain laws that bind us together; the law of averages, the law of the jungle and, of course, Murphy’s law. On board a recent Cunard cruise I discovered there is another law from which […]
