Doing Your Civic Duty

16 August, 2015
civic-duty

About 6 weeks ago I received a letter in the mail informing me that I have been called for Jury Duty.  It is a letter that has been arriving at least once a year since moving to this town about 16 years ago, so I know what the envelope contains before I even open it. All of the previous years I have had a valid reason to be excused from the pleasure, however this year apparently being self employed mean’t I didn’t…

It’s been a few years between an update in the Vagina Diaries.  If you don’t remember or missed the first season you can check them out here. Basically, every couple of years my girlies and I head away on a weekend to the coast sans responsibilities but with our vaginas packed up nicely and ready for a big catch up.  (no sexual pun intended Queen D.. stop it) This year, it was only the three of us.  Carly, Ally and myself.  This…

On Not Bawling As The Bride Walks By

27 July, 2015
balling-as-the-bride

I have this inherent fear of accidentally letting the biggest and loudest blubber out when my beautiful friend Nat walks down the aisle in just over a month from now. I love Nat and her Husband to Be’s love story.  I love seeing the love they share despite having to meet some of the toughest days any couple should have to face. And it is because of my love and envy of their love that I am frightened of what…

The Goblet Girls Educate Their PT

22 July, 2015

As I have spoken of prior, The Goblet Girls have entered themselves into a fitness challenge at our local gym.  It is an absolute wonder of the universe that we have committed to this, because it involves something we all at times find repulsive…FITNESS. After a couple of warm up events in the previous weeks, last night we had our very first Personal Training session with PT Devon at Zarly Anne’s Gym. I was expecting a bit of a grumpy hard arse…

The Unicorn Shitting Rainbows And Other Miracles Report

18 July, 2015
File 18-07-2015 11 42 36 pm

We have lived in this house for over 5 years now. We bought it with a view to renovate it in all of our spare time. Then we had a reflux baby. What spare time? The need to paint walls was quickly replaced with the need to be continually mopping the vomit that slopped up the walls, floor and my hair. I cannot forget my hair. Not that I ever mopped my hair, but I did consider that the mop…

When You Think You’re Un-huggable

16 July, 2015
File 16-07-2015 10 19 15 pm

On a scale of 1-10, I am possibly a 6 when it comes to being a huggable person. I desperately need hugs daily and give them in plentiful supply to my kids, but it seems I am not the sort of person that receives them. Maybe I stand awkward. Maybe I look like a hard case. Maybe I appear prickly. Maybe my arms are too short to effectively engage in a hug. Maybe I ride my unicorn far too often…

So I am on one of these blogging hiatus’s again.  It isn’t that I don’t want to blog. I do.  It is simply that I have been finding myself in such a confusing headspace I didn’t want to actually upload that shit.  Dat stuff is no fun and this blog is mean’t to be FUN. Professionally I think I am kicking some arse. My business is doing well and I am feeling proud.  But personally I suck. Lot’s of big feelings…

Showering In The Dark And Barbie

Rain drops on window , rainy day

I have mentioned on here before my love of showering late at night in darkness.  It helps to put me in the correct gear for decent sleep, which is something that I have really really needed this year with being that  sleep has become my enemy This was not going to be the case on Wednesday 24th of June 2015.   It was late.  Very late.  I had spent 4 hours working with a client on his website and I rocked…

Black Coffee And Stuff

I had this random conversation a few months ago with someone on the internet.  I don’t really know how it started to be honest.  But the fact that it did start is something I will be forever grateful for.  (Please remember talking to people I don’t know online is the norm for me …) We chatted about all sorts of nerdy things in common ; favourite authors, weird shit we have read on the internet, crazy friends and even how…

Go On The Gut Feels

20 June, 2015
go-with-gut-feels

If there has been a consistent theme the last couple of weeks in my life and the lives  of the awesome people that are standing around me, it is to always always go on the ‘gut feels.’ You know the little twang in your tummy when something someone says or does that just doesn’t sit well with you? Or the warm feeling of kinship and affinity when something is right for you? In the past I have always been pretty in tune…

It is 11:05pm here at Chez MMM and it has been about 16 hours since I announced to our 4 year old that if he didn’t start going to bed in his own room and staying there until the sun rises, I am going to be moving out. Drastic threat hey?  One I have every intention of following through on if things don’t start to change or even vastly improve. Last night I slept on 7 mm of my lovely…

Yesterday I posted what I hope is the first of many little vlog’s over on the MMM Facebook page.  It has been something I have been working up to for a little while now. Can I just say that it’s one thing to take a selfie or a pic of something crazy, it’s another thing to put a camera infant of yourself and talk..unrehearsed.  Just talk. But I did it.  FIST PUMPS!!  And I think you guys and I related on a whole new…

When you’re a creative person, hitting the lack of inspiration wall can seem like the end of the world.  I know because I have been there sooo many times before and despite that, I still fear it when I sense it starting to occur. I am however becoming more in tune with what I need to do to stay inspired now that I have a full – time career that relies on my ability to stay inspired and be creative. I…

The Sunday Slayer

31 May, 2015
Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

Today, began like many others just lately. Me wanting UTTER SILENCE. As I sipped on my coffee that Mr MMM had lovingly brewed in an attempt to bring me out of my morning coma, the running Messenger conversation that is always happening with My Gay Husbands (Queen D and Lord Rice) got nasty. AND noisy AND I was forced to send the inconsiderate little shits a self portrait of myself to frighten them into some sort of vow of silence.   Exhibit…

Motherhood and Bad-Arsery

Now, if you have known me for sometime you know that I have some attitude.  I am notorious for standing my ground, being a little outspoken about things I am passionate about and speaking my mind even if that gets me into all sorts of strife.  I base my decisions on instinct and it feels wholesome and good. When it comes to Motherhood, I initially struggled.   I felt like I lost myself.  I believed I had to conform to this…

Meet My Inner Jerk

I have spent a large part of my adult life working in an environment that ensures that nobody blossoms.  The tall poppy syndrome being very much alive and well there.  I knew this a very long time ago but still I didn’t feel the need to step away, as the security of such a job was at the time more important to me.  The way I sat so beautifully in my very own lack of confidence box was the most…

1. Coffee and Cake with a great girly friend which then rolls into a big fat fun lunch. 2. Pinning shit all over Pinterest, including pins on how to clean house in 10 minutes a day. 3. Reading for the 450th time Pride and Prejudice or To Kill A Mockingbird or anything really.  A book.  The ones where you can turn the pages and even sniff them.  The ones that you have to clip a little light to your book at…

Over the last few days I have had more WTF moments from stories of women in the media than I have had in some time. First there was our beautiful Princess Kate who stepped out to show us her little just born Princess 12 hours after giving birth. Everyone was like …oh goodness look how AMAZING she looks…I never looked like that after giving birth.   And truth be told, I didn’t either BUT, if I had a baby that the entire…

Stuff I Find Highly Irritating

I have a passion for Rocky Road Ice Cream.  I say passion because I not only love the taste of it, I also have a great fondness for each and every single ingredient Sara Lee choose to place in the particular tub I like to have living in my freezer.  I would also go as far as saying, I wouldn’t mind seeing them make the stuff and maybe lick the vat out when their done. Classy I know. So I…

How I Do Care

This morning I woke to a message from my Mum that my Uncle was found unconscious by his wife of over 50 years. It wasn’t a huge surprise that this had happened.  He had taken big stroke a couple of years ago and we were all prepared for the worst back then.  And it didn’t happen.  He was placed in a nursing home but hated it and fought like crazy to rehab to get home to the love of his…
