Menopause,Marriage and Motherhood

Boys Need Rules

I’m going to talk today about the big topic of motherhood. I’ve been online for about three and a half or so years now. And I generally avoid the topic of motherhood, and particularly the parenting side of motherhood. I’ll talk about the things that have happened with my children. But I don’t like giving …

Should You Have To Parent Your Partner?

I got asked an interesting question: would I expect to have to parent my partner? I have strong opinions about this aspect of Australian culture that’s always been a source of irritation for me. Plus Part 2 of my learnings and experience during the amazing Persistent Pain Management Program that I’m lucky to be a …

Persistent Pain Management

Podcast Episode 7 Persistent and chronic pain is something that a large number of women live with from a variety of causes: migraines, fibromyalgia (Lady Gaga is a sufferer), cancer, arthritis, or, in my case, pelvic mesh that has gone horribly wrong. What I’ve come to realise is that persistent pain is very much a …

I don't think the world should be vegan

NO VEGAN DIET FOR ME

I DO NOT THINK THAT THE WORLD SHOULD CHANGE ITS DIET TO A VEGAN ONE. There. I’ve said it. I’ve come out of the meat eating closet. Anyone who wants to unfriend or unfollow me because they can’t condone my cruelty to animals, go right ahead. I love my animals and I take care of …

Kiss and Makeup

I’m going out to a special event tonight: my friend’s 40th birthday bash. She’s a high profile online entrepreneur who likes to dress in designer gears and who spends a fortune on makeup at Chanel. I don’t really do makeup. Mascara, yes, but that kind of doesn’t count as makeup. I keep trying to wear …
