Diary of a thirty something mother.


  • My Life in Mono... http://www.mylifeinmono.com/

    Diary of a thirty something year old mother to one feisty Lil' Tiger and a wife to a wonderful husband, M. A Personal Assitant by day and a blogger by night, I indulge myself with black forrest cakes and green tea ice creams.

    I am a Cooking Show junkie and would like to have dinner with Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstal and ask him questions like, did you really chase all those rabbits down from your paddock? Occasionally, I dabble in crocheting, gardenting and now bread making. My mom has always said that I am a Jack of all Trades and a master of none. Hey, at least I tried. Right?

    My mission is to find the meaning of Love, Life and Laughter whilst balancing a toddler on my hip. Learning how to fall in LOVE all over again with my husband and partner M. Learning that LIFE doesn’t always go as planned and not taking LIFE so seriously and learning how to LAUGH along the way.
