Safer internet day has made me reminisce about my childhood and how grateful I am to have been born in an era where none of my embarrassing trends, or attempts to fit in would be eternally documented online. There is every chance the internet will outlive humans so theoretically, I could have been a source… Continue reading SAFER INTERNET DAY #SID
Hi!! Rohan’s mum here. I thought I’d give you the backstory behind the Koala saving, firefighter thanking, robot drawing boy. If you are wondering if I am a pushy mother trying to turn my child into the Australian version of Greta whatshername – fear not. There is no political agenda, I’m just a mum doing what I can… Continue reading Rohan’s Drawings….. where it all began
For the kids 16th birthdays, Ben and I decided it would be good to take them on an adventure holiday. Something that will push the limits of their comfort zones, test their endurance and help them to develop in to responsible, focused and well adjusted adults. I seriously could not think of anything worse. Not… Continue reading Cage Diving with Sharks – an adventure I’m happy to blog about from afar.
After the last two months I consider myself to be an expert in booking accomodation. I know, I know, I call myself an expert in many fields... none of them are particularly useful so I think it's okay to apply that label without sounding too boastful. Two months ago work told me I needed to… Continue reading BIANCA REVIEWS: How to book accomodation and where to stay in Sydney.
Muriels wedding is one of those iconic Aussie films that really sums up who we are as a nation.

Other Aussie classics,… Continue reading BIANCA REVIEWS – Muriel’s Wedding the Musical

I dare say my friends and… Continue reading Bill Bryson – LIVE ON STAGE – a review by his self proclaimed “favourite groupie/stalker”.
I'm not sure where USA tax monies are spent. I didn't get the vibe that they were spent or invested in healthcare, or siphoned into welfare and addressing the great wealth disparity.... in fact, I never really thought about it until I visited the country. Then it dawned on me, or should I say, hit… Continue reading Tips, trips and psychological tricks in the very famous town – Los Angeles (Part 1)
As a person who has had not one, but TWO pigs as pets I feel very satisfied that I have the required knowledge and experience to answer this question honestly. No. Pigs DO NOT make good pets. I'm sure there will be many people out there who will vehemently disagree with me. I would have… Continue reading Do Pig make good pets?? A hard lesson learned at Nobel Acres.
Someone suggested to me recently that I keep the blog going even when I'm at home. "Why on Earth would I do that???" I asked sceptically "My life is bat-shit boring." I've now been home from America for 4 days and I was about to do one of my super long FB-status updates which are… Continue reading It’s ALL an Adventure
We left Vegas after only 2 nights and I can't say I have any inclination to go back, especially with children. It isn't really a kid friendly city. We had booked to stay at the Embassy Suites (South) near the airport in LA for the night and my expectations were quite low. It is nowhere… Continue reading Las Vegas to LA with a day trip to Redondo Beach
