Winning and losing doesn’t rely on the score…

I’ve had the most epic of epic weekends and have the bruises to prove it!  I’ve also learnt a lot.  And also epically, it fits under all of my blog categories: photography, roller derby, parenting… I reckon I can squeeze in a gender stereotype reference and we’re all covered! The Rebellion Melbourne roller derby tournament...

Raw but still good…

I’m very much a believer in imperfect is just perfect.  An image that captures emotion, personality, relationships has much more going for it than the forced smile shot, even if it has better lighting or a prettier backdrop.  Raw can be powerful.  I’ve a couple of raw images I adore because they allow me to...

Do you have the boy toy?

I uttered ‘arsehole’ under my breath today at McDonalds… (yep – the usual ban on most of McDonald’s fare is lifted on McHappy Day – if you purchase a Big Mac that is – although next year I think I’ll just donate or buy the socks.. How people eat that white confectionery bread and sugar...

Babywearing for the win…

As its International Baby Wearing Week I thought I should sing the praises of baby wearing… The theme for International Babywearing Week’s  ninth annual celebration is Threaded Together. The inspiration for the theme comes from the many different threads that when combined through the weaving process form all of the carriers we use. All of these...

Challenge the social media filter…

Some days I don’t love reality.  When you’re surviving on night naps not sleep.  When you’ve been pinched, scratched and bitten way more than you can handle.  When you’ve had to clean poop from the bath.  When you’ve worn out the ‘long days, short years’ mantra by saying it so many times it no longer...

Clean up in aisle two… cloth nappies

We’ve gone with cloth nappies.  I just hate the idea of wrapping raw sewage in plastic and sticking it in landfill.  Who actually reads the side of the pack and empties waste into the toilet first?  But I also wanted to be realistic and didn’t want to overload the workload when Riley first arrived home....

Wanted: common sense

So using my blog as therapy again…. Yay for school uniform policy changes in Vic but seriously cannot believe this topic is still controversial. Surely common sense dictates: here are all the items of clothing that make up our uniform, choose the bits you want to wear irrespective of gender. And let’s be honest, allowing...

Small changes to save the world

Having a kid really does remind you to not stuff up the planet.  I haven’t actually watched War On Waste but my increased environmental tendencies seem to have occurred on the same timeline. I already do a few things (like shun bottled water packing my own) but here are the small steps I’ve taken recently...

What I wish I knew on surviving baby sleep…

There are two pieces of advice I would share with new mums that allowed me to survive (I was going to say cope, but lets be honest, it’s survive) and to regain some semblance of sanity after having a baby… The caveat: I’m no expert and do not know your personal circumstance – take any...
