    20 things you probably didn’t need to know about me.

    Hey, everybody. Hope you’ve all been enjoying your Easter time. We have! Lots of quality time with family and friends who are basically family. It’s been lovely! Now it’s Easter Monday and I thought I’d have a go at this. I was tagged twice by lovely ladies on Instagram (one being the awesome Carly over at Ctrl+Alt+Mum – best blog name ever). I know it’s supposed to be an Instagram thing, but I am really shit at typing long things on my phone. I am just not patient enough. Which should be fact number one about me, which means I wasted one fact – just gave that one up for…

    A person…trying on clothes.

    This post has been inspired by Fat Mum Slim’s Photo a Day challenge x Yesterday I went clothes shopping. Alone. CAN YOU BELIEVE IT? I made the most of the fact that there’s late night shopping on a Thursday and I was on a mission. I never usually have much time to try things on (a toddler isn’t always the best clothes shopping companion) and I was in desperate need of a few things to wear over the summer. I had been reduced to one black dress (not as fancy as it sounds and the fabric was starting to take on that ‘slept in’ fuzzy look) and a pair of…

    Key…and do car thieves read my blog?

    This post has been inspired by Fat Mum Slim’s Photo a Day challenge x This is my car key. It’s not so flash. The buttons have disintegrated. Happens all the time. At first I thought it was because I was digging my nails into them by accident and I felt a bit bad about it, but over time (and conscious effort NOT to use my fingernails to push the buttons), I have begun to realise that they’re just stupid buttons that were clearly not even designed for fingers to push them over the full life of a car. The later models all have flash, new and improved keys and I…

    Button…and random thoughts that have nothing to do with buttons.

    This post has been inspired by Fat Mum Slim’s Photo a Day challenge x About the photo: When I saw the prompt for ‘button’ come up, I knew exactly what I’d take a photo of. A hot pink button that fell off my favourite cardigan a couple of days ago. I added a couple of my fingernails, just because I love the colour (the home manicure skills – not so much – eesh – those cuticles). Anyway, my pink cardigan is so awesome. It was a bargain from Cotton On and it has helped me to brighten up every dull winter’s outfit ever. People are always commenting on how lovely it…

    Why I write.

    Yep. It’s come to this. I am going to write about writing. You could blame my writer’s block for this desperate attempt, but I thought I’d share what it feels like to be a writer at heart. To be passionate about writing.  image I am not a professional writer (that’s been more my talented brother’s job). I have no real qualifications in writing (other than the fact that I pumped out essay after essay at uni haha). I just love to do it. So I call myself a ‘writer at heart’ because it best describes my passion. For as long as I can remember, I’ve been a writer at heart.…

    How I feel about 30.

    image Yesterday I turned 30. I know I’m supposed to laugh nervously and say, “Oooh scary!” But I’m not scared. Or joke about it being the somethingth anniversary of my 21st or mumble my age like I’m embarrassed. But I’m not embarrassed. I’m excited. The 30 year old me is a better me. A wiser me. A stronger me. I have a looooong way to go and I hope I keep learning, changing and improving for the rest of my (hopefully) long life, but I have never felt as sure of myself in my life as I do in present day. I feel like I can welcome my 30s feeling more…

    It’s all about your attitude.

    image As some of you might know, I was struggling with feelings surrounding my adoption that reappeared as we started planning our first holiday to my birth country for later this year (it’s coming up fast – hold me). However, I blogged about it and I reached out to my family and loved ones. I felt encouraged and supported and despite being drained and confused, I felt like I could just release those feelings – throw them up in the air and surrender to letting them fall where they may. It turns out I got quite a quick (but unexpected) cure for this recent unrest the other night. There was…

    Why I shouldn’t blog late at night.

    Lately I’ve been feeling confused. Sh*t got real when we booked plane tickets (and now a couple of hotels) for a trip to South Korea. The place where I was born. The place where I was given up for adoption from. It was never supposed to be a crazy emotional journey. We’ve always maintained that it will be just a touristy trip to soak up some culture and see some new stuff. I have always been down with that. So cool about it that I kind of surprised myself. Turns out I might have been in denial. And now I’m as confused as f*ck. image When I was younger, I…

    Do you remember me?

    I hope everyone’s enjoying the holiday season – here’s a blog post I found in my drafts folder from January 2013 (about a year ago). I decided to publish it today x You can file this post under ‘stuff I bet you didn’t know about Kez’…unless you’ve known me since forever and then I just want to give you a big hug for ‘getting’ me 😉 I have this thing. I don’t want to go as far as to call it a complex or a neurosis (even if that’s what it is, can we not call it that?), but it does affect my life occasionally (but persistently). You see, I…

    I hope you won’t think less of me.

    Look. I have a confession. I know it will probably change the way you think of me forever, but I just have to come clean. I’ve tried to make it right many times throughout my adult life, but it just hasn’t come together as I’d hoped. I DON’T LIKE CURRY. pic Yep. I’ll let that sink in. I don’t like curry. I don’t like the flavour and I don’t like it when it’s really spicy. Even if it’s kind of mild, I will be all like, “WTF? This is MILD? Yeah. Right. More like BURNS ME HOT.” I don’t like red curry, yellow curry, green curry or any other coloured…
