Moving Day


So I’m a little sad about it, but moving day has arrived. The new look Née Say has been launched over here over at

Please pop over and say hi!!

A letter to The Man

I know you want to fix me, but I’m not a broken toy.
Your trusty letter opener and superglue won’t work on me.

I know you don’t understand what is going on in my head.
How can I expect you to, when I struggle to myself?

I know finding me crying in the dark seems irrational to you.
But for me, sometimes it’s the only thing that makes sense.

I know you have been trying hard to be supportive.
I appreciate your efforts so much, even when you falter.

Above all else, I know that you love me unconditionally.
Right now that is exactly what I need.

All my love


Pin(n)ing for a getaway

Today I’m wishing I was anywhere but here. Actually anywhere isn’t completely true, I have some pretty specific criteria: Sand, sun, clear blue water but most of all solitude. Somewhere like these places:   Lucky there is Pinterest to help me dream a little dream. Feel free to check out my Getaway board for some other blissful […]

Dental Dilemma

I have a confession to make… I have never taken my children to the dentist. I know. Shall I add a link to DoCS at this point for your convenience? Now before you commence reporting me to the relevant authorities, I think my conscience can be relatively clear in relation to Bam Bam (2.5y). Besides, I’m […]

Feb 14 Wrap Up

Yesterday I wasn’t expecting any surprises as The Man & I had agreed no pressies for our anniversary this year. However, I was secretly pleased when he came through with the goods and I came home to these: So in return I cooked him Pad Thai And the easiest, yummiest chocolate fudge sauce suggested by […]

Happy anniversary to us

Today is our 8th wedding anniversary. We chose Valentine’s Day as a kind of tongue-in-cheek salute to how romantic we are not. The Man isn’t great with dates so I figured it’s pretty hard to forget Valentine’s Day in all its commercial glory. We didn’t do the whole big wedding thing. It’s not our style […]

{Book Review} Campaign Ruby

  This is the first book review I’ve written since high school. In fact, I can’t even remember writing one then…  But nevertheless, I’m going to give it a crack because I absolutely adored this book. Before Christmas I was invited to attend a book launch for Jessica Rudd. Unfortunately, I was unable to attend but […]

Puppy vs Toddler

  I’ve been feeling a tad clucky lately. I blame TV. We were watching my fave show Bones the other night and the main character is pregnant. Not sure if it was the baby references or the thought of me her having Booth’s baby that got me all weak at the knees. Anyhoo… Dan is […]

School Run Etiquette

source At 3 weeks in, I’m still a rookie when it comes to this whole school run bizo. Even so, at this early stage in my career I’ve already made a couple of interesting observations regarding parent behaviour during school pick up & drop off time. In the spirit of being a supportive fellow parent, I’ve compiled […]

{Nee Asks} Save my Sanity!

Ok peeps, I am in desperate need of some parenting advice. My child’s life is in danger. See this sweet innocent face?   I could throttle it most days. It is well documented on this blog that the Wilful One and I both possess the procrastination gene. But since turning 5, the boy’s has gone into […]
