I want to talk about something that’s bothering me a lot lately. This is not directed at anyone I’m having deeper, behind-the-scenes conversations with, it’s
A couple of years ago, I wrote a blog – Kids don’t grow up fast, they grow up suddenly. Well the growing up bit has
We’re celebrating Father’s Day today. It’s not Father’s Day for my dad, as he’s in Australia, and I’m not even sure if it’s Father’s Day
I was trying to work out how many days we’ve been in isolation and I think it’s 29. All I know for sure is we’re now starting week five and the roller coaster continues
My family is heading into our fourth week of isolation, and compared to the vast majority around the world, we are very lucky.
I know many are overwhelmed, so by collecting the best and most insightful of what I read, I’m hoping to help those feeling frazzled by the amount of information feel, well, less frazzled.
I love Dolly Parton. Love love LOVE HER! She is an amazing and magnificent human, a blessing in our world
I am a very active and vocal contributor to the climate crisis. I’ve always been vocal about the environment, pollution and more
I recently returned from five amazing weeks traveling around Europe, with a side-trip to the US. As someone passionate about the environment
Everyone told me I was mad. Don’t do it they said. Don’t go to Europe with the boys alone. It’ll be hell.
If you’ve ever done meditation, mindfulness, yoga or anything similar, there’s a strong chance you’ve been asked to breath in love, breath out hate
I was standing in line at a 7-Eleven the other day. There were four people in front of me, all buying single items, and everyone of them accepted the plastic bag offered.
I’ve had a tough start to the year, really tough. I’m usually not one to get down and stay down, and I’ve been trying to reach out to people to talk too
We’re 16 months into life in Phuket, and while it feels impossible to grasp the deep and complex culture of the amazing Thai people
I know many aren’t quite ready to embrace the enormity of the current environmental crisis, and for many others, it’s just too overwhelming to even start thinking about.
I know everyone thinks time is moving fast, and I feel that, but it can also feel slow and ponderous, especially when moving and adjusting to a new country.
I’m on the beach the other evening and there’s a team of horses the tourists love to hire. During the low season – which is coming to an end soon
I caught up with my mum after our US trip, and she loved reading the updates and watching the videos. People, like my mum, were the reason I put so much effort into capturing our travels.
Before arriving in the US, I kept a kernel of hope in my heart I would love my theme park experiences. It was a tiny kernel, but it was there.
A few years ago, I wrote a blog – The haunting moments of broken bones – following a particularly brutal evening, where for one hour,
There’s a quote doing the rounds on social media following Anthony Bourdain’s passing. I don’t think a quote has ever spoken to me more deeply.
Quite a few years ago, my lovely husband, Steve, bought me the book How to Stop Worrying and Start Living. A world-famous book, it was published way back in 1948 by Dale Carnegie.

Decorating the Christmas tree with my lads, traditionally, has been nothing short of annoying. I’m gunna be honest here – they’ve always been completely useless
Yep me, doh! You see I’m really good with directions (like navigation is a gift-good), so getting lost is not something I embrace. I like
I’ve been on the road, travelling and living around the world, since 1995. I’ve lived and worked in Melbourne, London, Boston, New York, Sydney, Singapore,
We’re moving countries. Not only that, we’re keeping 25 per cent of our life in Singapore, moving 75 per cent to Phuket, and the boys
