24 Things I’ve Learned in 24 Years

Another year older, another year wiser? Here are 24 things I have learned over the past 24 years.   The answer is always ‘no’ until you ask. Rejection doesn’t mean that what you’re offering isn’t good. It just isn’t what they are looking for right now. Work yields result. Sometimes you just can’t do it […]

My Family Rum Ball Recipe

At the beginning of the month, I brought you one of my old family Caramel Tart recipes which you can find here. Today, I bring you another old family recipe that reminds me of Christmas time, this time from my Dad’s side. Dad’s side isn’t big on desserts really, there’s always the mango chilli prawns […]

I love shopping. I love sales. And I love Christmas. Put them together and BAM, I spent too much money, but hey, here’s a haul! This year, we needed a new tree, some more house decorations, and I decided, all new tree decorations as well. So I set out with that in mind, and here’s […]

Blog Post with Left Sidebar

Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, […]

Blog Post with 2 Sidebars

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book.
