What the Best Advice?

Whats the Best Advice You Ever Received?

I’ve a wonderful friend who’s older than me. Throughout my child-rearing daze, she was always ten years ahead, offering sage advice at every stumble.

Her words of wisdom still guide me today. One of the most notable was the following:

“Before going out anywhere make sure your nipples are aligned.” 

Thank you, Mrs Marais! 

I know it’s not funny for all those who have breastfed! But when you […]

Getting the Job Done

Getting the Job Done

I am working on two books this year – my 2020 goals!

If it’s anything like my exercising and healthy eating goals, I won’t stand a chance.

But I’ve committed myself to churn out 2,000 words a day on my new book, “Sophia,” which I started in December last year. So far, I am up to 44,000 words. YES, you’re right. I don’t have a life! I need around […]

New Year New Dare 2020

By |2020-01-02T13:02:27+13:00January 2nd, 2020|

New Year, New Dare!

I have a policy of never looking back.

That stuff is all done and dusted, it’s sentenced to a fixed way of being, and there’s nothing much you can do about it. Some self-help proponents advise apologising to those you have wronged. I’ve tried it. It works sometimes …

But if you’re into letting go and moving forward, you often don’t need to pick the scab off some failure […]

It’s All in the Blurb – Book One

I’ve been doing some research into back cover blurbs and mine needs changing! I’ll be updating the blurb on Amazon and see if that helps first before I change the back cover on the printed paperback versions! Here’s the NEW Blurb:

The Taste of Christmas

Taste of Christmas

I grabbed a fistful of fabric, pulling on my mother’s apron, desperate to get her attention.

She leaned down towards me.

‘What is it darling?’ she smiled, a smudge of cake flour across her rosy cheek.

‘Can I have a turn?’

‘Of course,’ she scooped me up into her strong arms, holding me over the earthenware bowl. Rich smells of cinnamon, all spice, raisins and orange peel, saturated my senses. I involuntarily […]

It Wasn’t Me I Didn’t Do It!

By |2019-12-15T10:16:16+13:00December 15th, 2019|

It Wasn’t Me I Didn’t Do It!

I jumped at the loud rap on my front door.

Two policemen trussed-up in navy-blue uniforms with brass buttons glinting in the early morning light growled at me. The one with a ratty moustache introduced himself. I was in shock and didn’t quite catch the name but the second, shorter and bald, barked, ‘Constable Higgins!’

Where the hell was my husband? […]

How Much Sh*t Is An Overload?

By |2019-12-12T14:51:26+13:00December 10th, 2019|

How Much Sh*t Is An Overload?

It’s almost New Year so it’s time to let go of all the accumulated sh*t that stuck to you during 2019. Take a big breath and let it go.

I should know. I live in a bird house. A grapevine on our deck is home to 30 nesting birds. That means my home reverberates with noise from birds, their kids refusing to fly the coop and […]
