Hello

After some years focusing on my two small children, I am now trying to return things that I enjoy. One of the things I often think about is dinner, so that might show up too much here. Not trying to monetise anything here so everything will be a bit random. Advertisements

La Mer is da bomb in cosmetic elegance

I am your regular over read la mer basher. It is the same as nivea. I can mix a bit nivea with skb. I put a ton of skb in my husband’s hair gel. Seriously give me the money. I am totally eating my words now. I have been trying to deal with painfully dry […]

Exuberent enthusiasm

I was 7 when I met this older child who was then 11 years old. She was a prefect. She was soft spoken but had a quiet authority about her. I wanted to be like her. Everyday, I would save a space for her next to me on the bus. I don’t think I had […]

Their face and body is, in their minds, endlessly malleable. Obviously, the problem is the camera. The camera is a laser beam that targets what we find annoying […]

MOE Resource Library

I was helping the older child log into his Student Learning portal. I mucked about the site and discovered they is additional learning resources. They have them for most subjects. The kids were fighting me on the laptop to try out the activities. I think they can do this all day if I let them.
