WEAKNESS OR STRENGTH?

Friday 18th March 2017 Today I found out that Shonda Rhimes, creator of Greys Anatomy and other massive hit shows, has a memoir. I intend to download this as soon as I get home as I can’t wait for the book to arrive by post. Shonda fascinates me for many reasons – I think it […]

THERE IS GOOD IN THIS WORLD

Thursday 16th March 2017 Tonight a Givealittle crowdfunding page went live for my best friend, Manda. She has had a precious baby boy, but he arrived very early (26 weeks). As there is no room for him in the NICU at home, Manda had to head off to another city, away from family, her husband […]

HOW NOT TO EAT CLEAN

Wednesday 15th March 2017 Today I am running on straight caffeine and sugar. It’s one of those days with all of the meetings and all of the running around wondering how I will get everything done – desperately attempting to please everyone, of course. By the afternoon I have consumed a coffee, a sherbet fizz, […]

BLACKOUTS & QUALITY TIME

Tuesday 14th March 2017 Today when we got home from work, Matt and I had a bit of a technology blackout. We poured a cider and a beer and we didn’t turn the TV on. We put music on and chatted about our day. Matt turned his phone off altogether and read his book, I […]

WELL THAT’S JUST RUDE

Monday 13th March 2017 Today I witnessed an interaction in the workplace and it taught me something. It is an incredible leadership skill to be direct without being rude. The particular individual I encountered has yet to learn this skill. But it made me want to ensure I learn it for myself as I move forward […]

WRITING A BOOK

Sunday 12th March 2017 Today I properly sat down and mapped out the development of my book. I think I have a good idea, but who knows. It doesn’t matter anyway – I’m not writing it for anyone else, I’m writing it for me. Ok, that’s a lie. Every writer dreams that one day they […]

FINDING AN ANCHOR POINT

Sunday 5th March 2017 On Sundays, the working week ahead of me starts to creep into my mind. I’m unconsciously thinking about what I have to do on Monday. Ahhh the brain of a woman – it never turns off. No wonder we get tired! We are thinking all the time – strategising about how […]

PRETTY THINGS

Saturday 4th March 2017 Today a courier delivered a parcel for me. I completely forgot I had ordered it – a gold metallic skirt. If this was a text message, I would include the emoji with the love heart eyes here… I can’t wait to wear this for the rest of summer with camis and […]

CAN’T PLEASE ‘EM ALL

Friday 3rd March 2017 At lunch, I slipped out into the sunshine and mugginess of central Auckland to find a cafe so I could write my diary entry. At this time of the year, the cicadas are so loud they compete with the coffee machine. As much as I enjoy their song, I find myself […]

NO PANTS & ROMANCE

Thursday 2nd March 2017 In the car on the way home from work, Matt turned to me and said “I like your hair and I like your face and you look good in stripes, I’m so lucky to have you.” I decided to write this down for my own memories. Maybe for those times when we […]
