I haven’t been in the most chipper of moods lately. To be honest, I’ve been feeling quite cynical and disillusioned. But the cloud is lifting – it always does – and there have been been a few rays of sunshine this week. The biggest was a little bit of CSI work I got involved with,… Read More The Hanging Gardens of Walkerville
I don’t know if this makes me super-geeky, but one of my favourite ways to pass the time, especially when I’m looking for a bit of a pick-me-up-slash-kick-my-ass-into-gear, is to head into the black hole that is YouTube and watch a TED talk or four. They also make for pretty cool podcasts to listen to… Read More My Top 5 TED talks
I’m a social media junkie – I’m not going to even try and pretend I’m not. Any attempts at “detoxing” from the constant stream of information that I allow myself to constantly be exposed to, has failed dismally. But then again, I’m not very good at detoxes from sugar, wheat or caffeine either. Judge away. … Read More If only social media were a bit more… social!
Forgive me friends, it’s been much more than a month since my last spillage of words onto a page. Crazy, last minute, deadline driven attempts to focus on exams has taken precedence over normal life.

On a very good day, I spend about 90 minutes in traffic on my commute to and from work. That’s an hour and a half of my waking hours staring at cars in front of me and dodging taxis. Last year, I made a conscious decision to be more discerning about what to do with my… Read More Inspiration Everywhere!
One of the modules I need to take as part of the degree I’m working on is Business Statistics. I avoided it last year but I couldn’t avoid it any further because it’s necessary for some of the second and third year subjects I’m taking. So here’s the thing. I don’t have a numbers brain.… Read More Statistics. Or maybe Greek?
If you’re a friend or a regular reader you’ll know that this year Ewan started high school. I posted a long while back about choosing a high school. In the end, we chose the all boys traditional public school. It’s only been a few weeks since the new school year started. We’ve dealt with so… Read More Musings of a high school mom
It’s been a big, hard week for my big kid! So much change, so much to get used to! While I have no doubt that in time, we will all find our way in this new teenage world we’re navigating, it doesn’t make the right now the easiest place to be. Which got me thinking… Read More The only constant thing
I loved the feedback I got from my Banting Granola post the other day so I thought I share another of my favourite low carb basics with you. Nick always teases me and says the Banting community would find a way to make chocolate (or something equally impossible) out of cauliflower if they could. He… Read More Foodie Fabulousness: 6 minute cauli-rice
We’re trying to eat healthily in this house… well the adult contingent is, at least. You know, start the new year right and all. I’m trying to eat clean and follow a low carb, sugar free diet, as close to the letter as possible! I absolutely have to get serious about eating well because my… Read More Foodie Fabulousness: Banting Granola
