Such a glamorous way to apply cold pressure

Attack of the Zombie Ants #IBOT

It was supposed to be a nice family day at the beach. The weather was warm (I dressed like it was Darwin!), and there was a crazy hot wind blowing, which in these parts is pretty much considered the worst thing ever, but would apparently make one particular beach great…

Inside the Story

It’s Easter weekend so today I get to write about God. Which I can, of course do any time without apology, but this weekend in particular I get a free pass. I have always been enamoured by stories, ever since I was a little girl. I would surround myself with…

where do you see your blog going

Blogging About Not Blogging #IBOT

Some of you may not know, but very occasionally I write for another blog called The Soul of My Feet, which is a blog aimed primarily at Christian ladies. This year, the lady who founded The Soul of my Feet, has started up a Facebook group, (as well as off-line…

You Do the Hokey Pokey and You Turn Yourself Around

Now call me brilliant, but I just realised something amazing: all ¬†my kids are different! Did I blow your mind? Obviously I’m kidding. I have known for a good little while now (the last few weeks at least ) that all four of my babies, though similar in so many…
