Each year I love to promise myself I’ll get better at blogging regularly, then fail, then try to redeem myself with the very bare minimum of a year-in-review post. It’s really only so one day, my offspring have some piece of me left to ignore.

*Note: recap focuses primarily on, as Miss Piggy would say, “Moi!” (And French people I suppose if you’re nitpicking.) There’s a bit of family stuff but not too much, not ‘cos it didn’t happen (which it definitely did, and by Bowie, my nerves are frayed), but because my kids tend to value “privacy.” Quotation marks intended.

They weren’t even close to there. And it’s my choice to come…

If it weren’t for energy drinks and Melbourne coffee, I would be in a coma right now. Highlights of the past few days: – undoubtedly doing a guest spot in Spanzac Ballet, a late night glam rock gig at the HiFi Festival Club last night. I sang Skyhooks. I covered my poor lyric recall with a stunning lightning bolt across my face. I then proceeded to be approached by half of Melbourne’s tipsy wildlife on the walk back to the car. It was pretty damn epic. – being joined by the wondrous Ruth Sullivan to interpret two shows this weekend.…
