The arrival and getting my bearings

Oh my, that’s one hell of a trip! I tried very hard not to cry, but in the end couldn’t help myself. Very hard to say goodbye to your husband for three months!

On the move

I’m moving to Dublin! That’s right, Ireland… the one with Guinness and leprechauns… I can’t believe it! I’ve left Sensis after 7 years and I’m heading to Dublin.

So here I am, slowly coming out of the post baby zombie fog. E is doing amazingly well, putting on weight like a boss and sleeping better than K does. Of course the combined effect of the toddler not sleeping so well and the baby waking at normal for a two month old intervals means… Continue reading Puppies

The Joys of Suffrage

2016 Federal Election, various sites, Canberra, ACT for SRH and AEC, 2nd July, 2016

I went off to vote today. I kind of stuffed it up tho cos I thought I’d be all smart and go to a different place so that I could do an absentee vote. Last time I did that I walked straight past the massive queue and was in and out within 5 minutes. So,… Continue reading The Joys of Suffrage
