Sitting in that chair.

I don't like working in a office.
It's not me. I would much rather be writing, outside taking photos or doing something that helps people or..   anything really.

The Goods -

Not having to impress anyone (These people have seen you at your worst.)

They know when you are 'in a mood' and the good ones will leave you be.

Free range net - daily check of my fav blogs and email.

Support when needed as you spend more time with these people than with your family

The Uglys-

Pretty much being in a relationship with eight people you spend eight hours a day with.
A relationship, but without the good stuff.
You know how each person argues, what gets to them, what their favourite food is for lunch, what their 'weird office quirk' is - me I am rather attached to my stapler, and rather irritated when removed from my desk.

They see you when you have your makeup on and some days when you just can't be irked, all day you hear 'Ohh big night huh'.
'No this is just how I look'.

Constant work politics, he said this, she did this, you didn't do this.

When you make an error you hear it from one person, then another, then someone calls you about, then one more.

You spend more time with these people than with your family.

Oh and my favourite, hearing the constant complaints and whinging of my plans for Christmas decorating.

So there.    Grinch.


Oh and that last bit is just for you.

Because this post was becoming a bit of a downer and because
everybody needs to see a picture of Georgio Armani in a speedo.

Putting my Blogging foot forward

Starting up this little blog.

I have finally got it looking how I wanted it. A nice simple look I have been after and am excited about sharing and having this as my own little space.

When it comes to blogging what is best? What step do I take?

I am the sort of person in which I like to let it out, share all to share but am reluctant,
as I hear so many stories about bullying and so forth on blogs due to people putting their heart out there in written form and being so very honest.

I would feel as I am somewhat cheating myself and anyone who is kind enough to read if I didn't put it all in.

How do you blog?    How should I blog?

I Heart my Body

I have never really hearted my body.

I have been the fat *cringe at the word* girl. The girl with the stomach.
The girl no boy would even glance at.
It has taken me time and effort to start to appreciate my curves.


The women in my family have helped in making me change the way I feel.
We ALL have very little bum, long lady legs, and a very round tummy and it has made me feel like a part of something. A part of a collection of women who smile and joke about our ‘sexy’ bodies and how we are all the same.
I have realised it’s not about my looks but my health and how my body feels.
My chubby hands have not thinned, my blonde hair has darked, but I am me.

I have my father’s height, my mother’s worry expression, my very own blue eyes, my grandfather’s nose, and my nans squinty eyes.

And I heart my family. Therefore, I heart me.

Home Sweet Home?


We have been living in the same rental property for almost five years.

It is old, run down, dark, cold, mouldy..

Dont get me wrong I like old places, I love the history and character, I don’t like old places that have mould growing on the windows that cannot be scrubbed off.

There is no front fence, There are Hungry Jacks wrappers thrown on our lawn every day, people can walk up and tap on our bedroom window while I'm sleeping and the area has gone somewhat Bronx?

We have tried to build a home here, We had our engagement party on the patio, planned our wedding on the lounge room floor, had arguments in every corner, lost our cat on the road our the front, made chrissy lunch in the kitchen – there are memories here.

We pay very little rent here.

We have spent a long time trying to save, the wedding took a large portion of it and its back to basics again.

I have a frustrating part of me my husband (and myself) cannot stand. I have trouble making decisions - Is it the Libra in me? I change my mind, I think too much. I um and ahh and err.. I worry .. I worry too much. I worry that it won't be the right decision and it will impact how great I want our life to be.

Question is do we stay where we are .. in order to save more and not to waste money and have our deposit for our first home sooner
Or move into a new clean fresh (more expensive) rental and spend the 4k for rent in advance/bond but start our new chapter?
