Just Hobart Being Hobart

Walking through town the other day I spotted this sign: To be clear, it is an advertisement for a cafe. This might not be immediately apparent due to the image of a small baby taking over the majority of the sign. Don’t get me wrong, I want to gobble up babies as much as the next overly clucky aunty. I once made my nephew cry by suggesting that he would be delicious baked into a pie with peas and corn. However, unlike this...

Stuffed Olive Weird-O-Meter of Car Incidents

Given my rather sedate existence, I’m always troubled by the number of peculiar incidents that befall me. In particular, the weirdest things seem to happen when I’m in my car. I’ve mentioned before that I’ve been in many car accidents, one while I was stationary at the lights, and not one but two while I was parked. It might surprise you, therefore, to find out that these accidents barely rate on the Stuffed...

I’m awake!

This morning I had to wake up at a normal human hour. The horror! Being a night owl who works from home, I usually don’t get out of bed until about 10am. I know, how slothful. But in my defense, I’m sure I go to bed later than you so no need to be such a judgy wudgy bear.

Due to the random nature of my blog, a lot of rather obscure terms come my way. Many of these are posed as questions, so I thought it was about time that I answered some of the more frequently asked questions....

Apologies, people of the internet.

Apologies, people of the internet.

Dear My Readers, I’m sorry I haven’t been blogging so frequently lately. Unfortunately the world has conspired to make me ridiculously busy with stupid things like work. I know, I know. How boring is that? Sadly, I have to eat, and in order to do so, I must earn money.  I’d like to say I can live off inspiration and beauty, but I’m not a Hallmark card. I promise to return to the blogosphere in full force as soon as possible. After...

A Year in the Blogosphere!

Today is my actual, real Blogversary! YAY! According to my lovely WordPress Dashboard Thinga-ma-bob, I have posted 79 posts (80 including this one!) within 36 categories, and approved 607 comments (203 spam!!… and apparently 5 pending comments that I really better check out!). Google tells me I’ve had 1,787 unique visitors (whatever that means) and I now have 100 ‘likes’ on Facebook – yes, it makes me...
