20 Year Reunion Jitters – should I attend?

There is something to be said about getting older and being confronted by a 20 year reunion… First you think about your weight gain since the 10 year reunion and then about how old you’ve gotten. Next you start thinking about all the people you couldn’t stand in school and then the good times. Then […]


We all have strange habits…

Eating habits I am a fussy eater. I don’t eat anything that looks at me or still has blood oozing from it. I also don’t like cheese on my chicken or sweet chicken. I do not eat meat floating in sauce (like chicken-a-la-king) or meatballs thanks to being in a boarding school. My favourite sandwich […]


I might be married to your son, but you’re not my mother

I have a mutually non-loving relationship with my Mother-in-law. She can’t stand that I call her out on BS and I can’t stand her. I don’t know what it is exactly about her that makes me see red, but there are a number of things that have me laughing. So the other day she makes […]

When an embryo fragments…

I have been in for close to 12 aspirations and abandoned cycles more than double that. It hasn’t gotten any easier. On 2 Feb I went in again. I woke up to good news, a smiling husband and Dr Clark that found 1 more. Then the wait started to hear about progress… the fertilized egg […]

INSTAXgoddess Doors

INSTAX Door Project Update

I don’t know what I’m enjoying more – taking photos with the Instax Mini 8 or taking photos of the Instax photos. Finding the doors also makes me happy and seeing the smiles on people’s faces when they see the photos is just such a nice feeling. When I first started thinking about doing the […]
