A list to capture the moment

Inspired by Mummalove who was inspired by Meet Me At Mikes, a list to capture this moment in my life….

Spring in St Kilda


Making: sight word flash cards for Luca – crafty + excellent parenting = win 

Cooking: without inspiration – am hoping spring will change that

Drinking: Coke – because I have no self-control

Reading: 'Martin Westley takes a walk' by Andrew Humphreys – I'm not really into it yet

Wanting: my baby to sleep through the night

Sleeping BeautyThis but in her own bed, ALL NIGHT

Looking: at my frown lines and wondering about Botox

Playing: Plants vs Zombies – because the kids like it. The kids.

Wasting: time playing Plants vs Zombies

Sewing: my vajoots shut because three kids is exhausting

Wishing: I had a nanny or cleaner or both

Enjoying: the sunshine, oh boy, am I!

Waiting: for inspiration

Liking: my toenails painted watermelon red

Wondering: if Harlow will ever grow hair – and about Botox

Loving: dancing to Vance Joy’s “Riptide” with the kids 

Hoping: Tony Abbott does not win   

at my kids’ faces – sensitive, inquisitive, beautiful

Zig and Luca…and obsessed with technology

Needing: a massage, a loooong one, happy ending optional

Smelling: Spring in the air and rejoicing

Wearing: Havaianas – more Spring goodness

Following: the election campaign with a heavy heart

Noticing: how handsome Bren is

Knowing: I should overhaul my diet

Thinking: I need more willpower

Feeling: low in chi but hopeful I can feel better

Bookmarking: yummy salad recipes

Opening: my heart to the possibilities of life

Giggling: at Ziggy. That kid makes us all laugh.

How are you tracking? Are you sewing anything? Loving anything? Do you think I need Botox? 

Hello friends


I’m Angie!  I mum. I write. I wife. My husband would say this is the correct order.  He’s so neeeedy. I live with my family in Melbourne, Australia, where I complain about the weather for 90% of the year – but I can’t imagine living anywhere else. Except maybe in Lake Como, waving to my neighbours George and Amal each morning.

    I’m loving the sunshine here in Adelaide,my girls and I have been picking flowers out our garden. Feeling heaps better now the sun is out not as depressed. Looking forward to school holidays at the end of this month so I can spend more time with miss 5. No you don’t need botox you are beautiful Angie just the way you are ♥

    Isn’t the sunshine glorious? Makes such a difference to how I feel each day. Enjoy this time with your girls.

    I bought a sewing machine a few years back – it has never made its way out of the box. Ever! But I will do it…soooon.

    I only just found your blog, so I think it is too early for me to comment on whether you need botox or not..but I am guessing NOT as natural beauty should always be the way to live a confident life.
    I too, hope that creepy Abbott does not win (nor do I want the Pirate Party to win either!)
    I love the list you have compiled and hope you are enjoying the sunshine!
