Human Brochure Canberra

John and I are leaving first thing in the morning for Canberra to take part in the 500 strong Human Brochure Campaign.  A while back the ACT Tourism office decided that inviting 500 people active in social media and blogging to visit Canberra for a weekend would do more than a huge advertising campaign.  They […]

Back when we were flash with cash, buying things was a matter of getting in the car or going online and making the purchase.  No thought, no planning, no anticipation – I wanted it, I bought it.  Now don’t get me wrong, that WAS a lot of fun and there’s a lot to be said […]

Good lord you’d think I was pregnant with the cravings I’ve been having lately.  Like today – John asked what we were having for dinner and I gave a mental note of what we had in the freezer that I could magically thaw because I hadn’t given a moment’s notice to dinner planning.  Some days […]
