Date With Design

I went on a blind date last night – a definite dud. The guy wouldn’t shut up about the new office his company is setting up in Melbourne. As in, the company is actually his, not just one that he works for. Couldn’t he have told me about that, for crying out loud? Seemingly not. …

Summer Sensitive

When the night creeps up, and the land is quiet, and the moon in the only light in the sky. It gets cold! Yes, I break out in goosebumps. But not when I’m wearing my hoodie. Not that it gets cold all that much around Canberra. Sure, it’s not Darwin (thank goodness for that) but …

Naming Our Daughter

Dang, parents are presistent. Especially Mum. Our daughter still has five months until she’s born, and every day there’s a new, sneaky tactic to get us to tell her the name. We’re not telling.

It was only a year ago that we …

THAT was incredible. Still, one thing …

Future Cleaning Capers

Once I hit twenty, I started to do more things for myself. Since mum was very hands off in terms of housework (we had cleaners), I wasn’t ever allowed to learn. In fact, one time I tried to help our cleaning lady with the dusting and mum gave me an earful- mostly because she thought …

From Turmoil to Tranquility

Man, this glass is amazing. Such a simple and elegant solution. This whole place was in turmoil, and when I say turmoil, I mean TURMOIL. Just, turmoil, all over the dang place. Turmoil in the meetings, turmoil at the water cooler, turmoil when passing someone in the corridor. It was a city of Turmoil, with …
