Following up on…

While I was in the shower the other morning (all my best posts come from in-shower or on-toilet bursts of inspiration, FYI) I realised that I’d posted several things lately and not followed up on then. This means that my dear readers could be sat there in mental turmoil about what the hell is going… read more →

I got called a mommy blogger yesterday. Ouch. It was a harmless remark, included in an otherwise genuine question, not intended to offend. And yet nearly 24 hours later I’m still thinking about it. I guess what bothers me the most, aside from my distaste for the “PPP” / sponsored posts crap that most ‘mommy… read more →

Life. Oh, Life. Toddler taming & more.

(This post has been constructed over a period of several days, snatching minutes here and there. If it seems choppy / all over the place, it’s because it is.) Struggling to find the time to write at the minute.. life busy passing me by undocumented. It’s not like I don’t HAVE the time, it’s just… read more →

In Blog Limbo

I am in the unfortunate position of being in “blog limbo”. Despite vowing many moons ago never to become a mommy blogger, it became obvious roughly, oooh, 18 months ago that I was a big fat hypocrite and soon to break my one blogging rule. And, while I like to think I put my own… read more →

I Blew It

(And hope WordPress doesn’t let me down again) Or just not post? That seems like the pants option,… read more →

I’m Going to Blog Every Day for 30 Days

Hahahaha, April Fools! No, seriously :) I am desperate to get out of my bloggers block, so how best to do that than by scraping the bottom of the barrel for 30 days! After all, they do say that writers learn to write by writing, so theoretically bloggers (re-)learn to blog by blogging. My only… read more →

Get with the times, Jem!

I am finally caving to the RSS revolution and subscribing to blogs in an attempt to organise myself, and my browsing, a little more efficiently. I’ve decided on Google Reader because I’m a Google whore because it’s ‘net based and I can add the link to the groovy Opera Portal start page, but currently only… read more →
