Life is otherwise, here in Perth. One day I feel like a tourist, the next I feel like I live here. One day I’m doing very little of anything much, and the next I’m running around all over the place. There’s no routine and no real stability.

Whether you call it a nurse-in, a breastfeeding protest or lactivism, I love a good session of breastfeeding in public with a bunch of other women also breastfeeding in public. The beauty of breastfeeding activism is that it can’t be an angry event – by it’s very nature, breastfeeding releases oxytocin, the love hormone, and…

I have mentioned before that money is a little tight around these parts at the moment, since my hubby hasn’t been working full time for a few months now.

Mozambique. I’ve never been to it, but always known it as a place for great fish, and beautiful beach holidays, but I knew nothing about the country or it’s people prior to our visit. Mozambique reminds me of the Africa I grew up in. A place where you could walk freely, feel no fear, need…
Mozambique. I’ve never been to it, but always known it as a place for great fish, and beautiful beach holidays, but I knew nothing about the country or it’s people prior to our visit.
Mozambique reminds me of the Africa I grew up in. A place where you could walk freely, feel no fear, need no heightened awareness. I realise that my experience of Mozambique is painfully limited to both one specific area â€“ Ponta do Oura â€“ and a visit, and visiting a place is very different indeed from living in it.
