In the beginning, I was a little girl. I had long hair in braids and I was slightly awkward. I always felt a little out of place, and I was quite sure I didn't fit in. I was a dreamer and I lived my life full of whimsy.
Now I am the statistical definition of "middle class" in Australia - a woman in her middle 30's, married with two children and cat. We have a modest mortgage, two cars and live in the suburbs. I work fulltime in shift work and like 40% of Australian women, I have a university degree.
I drink too much coffee and probably not enough good wine. I try to eat chocolate everyday and I usually succeed. It's important to have realistic goals. I enjoy knitting. I lean left and I'm socially liberal. I try to only buy eggs from hens that lead happy fulfilling existences and I like red meat.
This blog will be a reflection of me. The me that grew from a little girl with dreams and whimsy.
