Social Home

I get that some people like their privacy, and they can have it. But for me, social time is the peak of my day. My dream home would the social nature of daily life, and I’m liking that this is starting to become more of a thing in interior design trends. I’m talking spatial layouts, …

Fairytale Cottage

My kids are convinced that a fairytale witch lives at number 48. Not in a scary way, mind you – I’ve raised them to not make assumptions about witches – and it’s true that the garden does look like it’s popped up from the pages of a fantasy story. Still, I happen to know that …

Personalised Balustrades?

If Pondelia Whimsy has a personal orchestral composer, I simply must have one as well! To think of all the time I’ve been wasting, simply summoning symphony orchestras into my personal entertainment parlour to play music written for other people. Oh, the shame of it! From now on, all of my music shall be written …

On the Case!

A mysterious fire in the basement, eh? All those cat-lovers running scared, glancing over their shoulders, worried about who’s gonna be next.

Unattended Life Admin

Jethro has become obsessed with that darned truck. He’s only had it for two weeks, and already he’s talking about modifying it. Part of me knew that this would happen, and yet I kind of thought that if he bought the ute, he might let up on the ‘dream vehicle’ talk for a bit. Annoyingly, …

Stock ‘n’ Roll

How come my office doesn’t look like the ones you see in stock photos? Yeah, I know that’s a dumb question – I mean, what does look like its stock photo counterpart? It’s just that it makes me feel like I’m not doing it right when I see pictures of vibrant, engaged workers collaboratively examining …

A Perfect Combo

It’s nice that the boys have finally decided to put their heads together and go into business. I mean, I know Dirk’s saying it’s just a temporary consulting thing on his part, but I think he’s just playing it cool. Karl’s not helping matters by getting carried away with his grand vision for a solar …

No Spoilers!

Well… that’s the entirety of Fantasy done and dusted. Five years of quality writing followed by five years of trash, so yeah… what a wild ride. At least we’ll always have the early seasons to go back to, with their tight plotting, sizzling dialogue and cleverly thought-out schemes. Spoiler warning: I wasn’t expecting the Noonday …

Lung Way Round

The things you hear while looking for a replacement rear view mirror at the scrap car yard! It’s enough to put you off leaving the house, not that I’m that big on it to begin with. The world is a dangerous place; there’s no two ways about it. Here’s an example of what I’m on …

Sojourn to Land

The ocean is usually my friend, but sometimes we move our relationship status to ‘it’s complicated’. We take a break. We need some space from each other. I was raised on the Fleet, that crazy group of boat enthusiasts, but now I’m more like a vegetarian who doesn’t judge carnivores in the slightest and is …
