Change in the home

Things change when one has a child. I know that for a fact. When Hubs and I got married and moved into our own home, I felt a sense of pride welling up in my chest as I thought, “My own home.” I had plans on how I wanted our home to look like. For months, […]

Cinderella Shampoo

My daughter has an obsession with princesses and fairy tales these days. She’s only 2 1/2 years old, but is already very independent and demanding, and definitely knows what she wants. Lately (and this is our fault as parents), we thought it’d be great if we introduced her to fairy tales. I bought 2 huge […]

Party

The assets were split amicably, the house was going to be sold and they would share the proceeds 50-50. She touched his face, and for a split […]

Weighty issues

Women have it bad. We’re constantly under pressure to look good, stay slim and be super-moms our entire life. And in this day and age, to have a successful career as well. I am no exception. Work has been good to me, we’re comfortable and surviving in this tough world. I think I’m a great […]

An old house

It was certainly overpriced. And rather old and dilapidated. But it was also in a lovely, quiet neighbourhood, located at the end of a cul-de-sac, with lots of garden space for the children to run about and play in. There were sad droopy flowers growing in a flower bed just outside the main door. The […]

Golf

I just cannot absolutely understand this game. I know the rules, I know what a birdie or hole-in-one is. I know you play courses with 9 or 18 holes. I know people who’d wake up at 5 a.m. just to play a round on the golf course. That has me stumped. But I suppose it’s […]

Celebrities

What’s this with celebrities and drugs? Hundreds of celebrities have been caught in that grind before. I was watching something on the E! channel the other day. Britney Spears’ fall from grace, from beloved pop princess to a ranting, psychotic woman dabbling in all sorts of crazy behaviour and ignoring her two very beautiful, very cute children. […]
