Comment on The Spirit of Christmas by Sammie @ The Annoyed Thyroid.
I thought living on the other side of the world from our families would make Christmas hard but actually it makes it easy because it frees me and the hubster up to just go slow and take some time to be together. I’m a big kid so I still love the magic of Christmas but I take all my favourite bits like the tree, the lights, the music, and of course, the bubbles and leave the rest. Christmas is a bit like Pick n Mix, take all your favourite things, but don’t get too weighed down! Your Christmas sounds like the recipe for a rather delicious Christmas. Mmmm popcorn!

Enough with the Single Shaming
I remember when I wrote my online dating profile, I said I wanted someone to “complement me not complete me.” I was single long after all my friends had paired off and if I’d had a dollar for every time someone said one of these statements to me, I’d probably be a millionaire by now! I know though, as annoying as my friends’ well meaning comments might have been, they were always just that, well meaning. I think being single and being in a couple are both special and fulfilling, they’re just different.
The lost narrative of women

On Being Australian
We recently visited the Female Factory in Hobart and where we learned about the first female convicts in Australia – it was both fascinating and confronting. I love the diversity of culture in Australia and as a “new” Australian I feel very blessed to be able to call Australia home. I really am living the dream.

So many books I want to read and so little time in which to read them!
