  • When parents regret having their kids

    I told my daughter not to finish all of a jigsaw I had just started, so she left me some...

  • How To Raise a Human

    Congratulations! My only useful advice is to avoid internet parenting forums like the plague. I'm not even kidding. They are a hot bed of judgemental crazies and no matter what you're doing there will be an online gang ready to pile on and tell you you're doing it wrong and probably abusing your child in the process.

    I have one child (18 now) and as someone who didn't grow up around much younger siblings and had no parent friends at the time, I was clueless. I basically treated my daughter like a tiny adult - spoke to her like I would anyone else from day one (a bit less colourful swearing, perhaps), took her with me out for breakfast or to cafes or when she was a bit older to movies and whatever artsy thing I wanted to look at. She's turned out to be a gem - which could be just her nature, but I like to take the credit. ;-)

    Edit: babies make the weirdest noises. Don't panic when you hear all that snuffling and snorting they do throughout the night!

  • 303 - Crazy Whitefella Thinking

    The best thing about this episode was the authenticity of the Auspost employee - dead-eyed, obstructive, and completely unhelpful.

  • Merry Christmas and happy holidays

    Merry Christmas all! It’s 9:30am here on Christmas Day and I’m stuffing myself with bacon and eggs before I get ready to go out for lunch later. Basically I’m planning to just eat all day. 

    Thanks for for another great year, @A_Ron_Hubbard @Jim and @Cecily
  • Beauty thread? Yes? No? Just me?

    Like any red blooded male I just steal my wife’s face wash. And shampoo. (and conditioner) 
    When I had a male around the house many moons ago I know he was always poking around in my shower gels and face scrubs and whatnot that were in the shower, even though he vehemently denied it. Sure, your face is bright red and you smell like gardenia, but I believe you.

  • TACOS!!

    My bog standard Monday night taco is pretty trashy - minced beef and either kidney or black beans flavoured with a salt free taco seasoning I buy on iHerb. We have them with crunchy corn shells and salsa, sour cream, grated cheese and shredded lettuce, also avo if it’s in season. 

    If I’m feeling fancy or feeding people other than just Lily and myself, I marinate a chunk of beef in a marinade I stole from Tyler Florence’s fajita recipe, then cook it in a really low oven for 6 or 7 hours until it’s soft and shreddable. Not at all legit but I live on the other side of the world from Mexico, so don’t judge me!
