Month: November 2011

Image credit here. While trawling through my old posts (for a purpose other than narcissism, I swear!) I came across this oldie and wanted to share it. Namely cos: a) it made me smile; and b) nothing’s really changed. xx This is an idea I stole from Gem, who decided to conduct her own Good Weekend style interview. I’ve already done one of these but here’s another. Cos I’m nothing if not original. My Perfect Weekend Jenny Wynter. Alleged funny lady, mother and social media addict. If you could go anywhere for a weekend, where would it be? Johnny Depp’s…

I only have questions. I welcome suggestions. This was all triggered by me putting together a “Year in Review” post – inspired in no small part by a 2010 post by the fabooshy Tess Waters – and already it’s been quite revelatory. And self-indulgent. And back to revelatory. Reading all that has happened in 2011 according to this here blog has made me feel…

How to even begin to communicate the whirlwind of things inspiring me of late. It’s so crazy, my head is full of so many plans, ideas, possibilities, adventures, lists and logistics, I’m literally having trouble getting to sleep. EVER.

My sister Ang is a musician (an AMAZING singer) and as of the past couple of years, a fellow mama. These days we make an effort to hang out at least once a week with our little bubs in tow, hers being a little more little than mine.

Image courtesy of Supernova Studios Employing a virtual assistant is an idea I’ve been toying with for quite some time now (seriously since reading about Sarah Wilson’s experience, which part sold me and part deterred me) but have put it off and off and off because…well, why? Fear? The belief that it couldn’t possibly work out, that I would never find somebody who would really get what I need? My control issues? However, having recently gotten to the point where I simply cannot keep up with my workload, the VA idea kept floating on back. 2012 is looking insane, albeit…
