The dreaded introduction post…

imageAhhh the introduction post… these posts are hard work right?

I am – supposed to divulge enough information that you want to come back and keep reading without telling everything there is to know.

I am –  a 30something year old woman living in beautiful Western Australia. Feeling much older than the 30something but I am working on that (on my physical, mental and emotional health) in hopes of feeling and looking better.

I am – Mama (flying solo) to 2 munchkins who are wonderful, crazy chaotic teenage nightmares. I try hard to be a good parent but I spend approximately 65% of my day walking around thinking WTF, just barely holding it together. But were figuring it out as we go and were doing okay. They are pretty freakin amazing kids so I guess I am not screwing it all up as badly as I think I am!

I am – friendly. I don’t have a lot of friends but those I do have are amazingly wonderful and I would do anything for them.

I am – travel obsessed. I have a bucket list of travel experiences and adventures that I have been adding to since I was just a kid.

I am – a foodie! Obviously, with an ass as big as mine! I love cooking and food and trying new things.

I am – increasingly nosy in my old age, a bit of a voyeur, happiest with a hot cuppa watching people just doing their own thing (hmm that doesn’t sound creepy at all!)

I am – a people pleaser perfectionist who takes failure as a challenge.

I am – touched by mental illness and the stigma that goes with it.

I am – a wannabe yogi, and I tried a couple of years ago (but that’s a story for another time).

I am – going to write here as often as I can…

Thanks for checking in. Feel free to leave comments, or email me at and I’ll respond as soon as I can.
