You know, I have several friends who I would describe as introverted homebodies who often didn’t leave their homes much outside of special occasions. Interestingly they are the ones who seem the most anxious about everything going on, and they said the same thing - big mental shift when you’ve chosen to do that vs… Read more
Not that I am living life anywhere near the level of a wealthy supermodel, but I have also been surprised at how much I am appreciating quarantine life. Pre-virus I was usually out several nights a week and the weekends were often a blur of socializing between my friends and my kid’s social life and activities. Now… Read more
We built our house last year (had no choice but to knock down most of what was here before, it was barely standing), and the best thing our architect did was make sure that we had lots of easy spots to slide things away easily. A couple of benches built into window seats with space for baskets underneath, and a few… Read more
We just agreed to take on 2 kittens that my cousin has taken in (along with another sibling and the mum) that were found under a neighbors house. They should be okay to come home with us next week. Normally I wouldn’t have considered it but given we are going to be homebound for months it seemed like a perfect time,… Read more
Good on her though for recognizing her privilege and donating $1 million to trying to close the gap somehow.

Meanwhile I cook the pasta and sometimes throw in some broccoli florets in the last few minutes of cooking. Then drain the… Read more
The schools issue is an interesting one, however. Some states shut their schools, and others have left them open for those who need them. In NSW that means about 80% of students have been staying home for these last few weeks of the term, and the 20% still going tend to be the kids of parents who are “essential… Read more
To be clear, Prime Minister Scott Morrison is an absolute moron and an awful man. His party (named the Liberals, but in Australia that’s our major conservative party) are constantly looking to find ways to reduce support to anyone other than the wealthy and large corporates, who get handouts by the barrel. He’s also a… Read more
Jealous you are losing weight, I am cooking and eating so much more in my time spent at home that I don’t see that in my future.
