Because I’ve been slack

Sunday, October 19th, 2008

For weeks now, I’ve been wanting to get my creative juices flowing and write a great post and/or post some great photos. Well it’s obviously not happened so instead I’m going to post a very interesting piece of information sent me by my Mom this morning. Have you ever rented or borrowed a car and [...]

Sue by candlelight

Sunday, July 13th, 2008

Taken at the end of a very indulgent day. We started with massages. And then it was SUSHI! Followed by shopping. Alison met up with us and we headed to the movies to see “Sex in the City”. That done, we had to of course head for drinks. The boys met up with us; Alison [...]

If I told you to jump off a bridge…?

Saturday, July 12th, 2008

Dooce told me to Google “doormat”. And, as I always do, I did what I was told. One of the links near the top of the list had a very clever ambigrammic offering. Of course you would have to know who was coming to visit to be sure you had the mat in the relevant [...]

Even at a young age I was detail-oriented when it came to food

Monday, July 7th, 2008

From a newly re-discovered diary. Sarah, age 10: Dear Diary, I was at Heather’s House last night. We snuck (bought) candy from the store, Saturday & Today. We bought (Sat.) 5 rasberries (each) 1 coke bottle candy (each) 1 wiggly worm (each) & 5 sours (each). On Sunday we bought 10 rasberries (each) 2 coke [...]

Duncan bought me this t-shirt from I think it’s actually more Sue than me. But I’m on my way.

Nugget comes to visit

Thursday, July 3rd, 2008

Nugget came over for a play date with Kip. She was pretty excited – raced through her walk in case Nugget was early. When he arrived, they spent the first hour or so running around the house – dining room, living room, hall, kitchen – an endless circle. Nugget did most of the running – [...]

The new synergy

Saturday, June 7th, 2008

Lately I am hearing one word again and again – ideation. And I am certain, prior to about 3 months ago, I had never heard it before. And yet now, it rolls off people’s tongues like they’ve been saying it since childhood. We even have a room at work called “The Ideation Room”. A quick [...]

Times they change very little

Saturday, May 24th, 2008

I remember being a teenager, sitting in front of the television, on the phone to a friend – who I had probably just said good bye to at school less than an hour earlier – discussing what was happening on the television. Fast forward a good fifteen years and what am I doing? Sitting in [...]

Not a scam after all

Saturday, May 17th, 2008

A little while ago, I received an email from through my Flickr account. The author of the letter, lets call her E.W., started off by saying: I am writing to let you know that one of your photos has been short-listed for inclusion in the second edition of our Schmap Australia Guide, to be [...]
