So Long and Thanks for the Mammaries


I’m writing this sitting in my hospital bed, the night after my breast reduction surgery. I’m still mentally coming to terms with what I’ve done, after a lifetime of overly large breasts and in many ways my breasts have defined part of who I am (just as I was a brunette and am now a […]

Why Having Big Breasts is Not So Fun


Today is the day, all going to plan, I’m having my breast reduction surgery. Many women find it a strange thing to do, and many women pay to have their breasts enlarged. Sure this is a first world problem, but I live in the first world. Since I was a teenager and my breasts rapidly […]

You may notice that my blog has had a little makeover. My new header illustration was created by Vanessa of Velvet Wolves on Etsy. I decided my whippet Cleo should be part of my blog as she so often photo bombs my pictures when I’m taking them.    

School Holiday Fun

Canberra Holiday

  The past 2 weeks have been school holidays here in Melbourne. I decided it was long overdue to take some time off and take my kids away on holiday. Over the 2 weeks we drove over 5000kms, our first stop was Canberra where my parents live.  While we were there we went to Floriade […]
