Who Am I?


Hip Vintage Polyester Meets Hippy Organic Cotton

Q. What happens when you take a sassy, rockabilly lovin’, beer drinkin’, crane drivin’, vintage fashion junky and make her a mummy?

A. You get a sassy, rockabilly lovin’, herbal tea sippin’, organic vegetable growin’, vintage fashion junky, who decides to write a blog about how her bonkers life tapped her on the shoulder one morning and said, matter-of-factly, “You need to eat more tofu and ahh… you’d better work out how you’re gonna clean cat vomit off the timber floor without creating a toxic waste dump cos ahh… you’re son is trying to lick the gaps between the floorboards.”   WTF?

It’s been a steep learning curve this past 2 1/2 years and I want to share the lessons, the ups, the downs and great tips for a cleaner, greener more harmonious existence with the earth and the entities we share it with.

In my time challenged journey, I will share my dirty secrets (mostly the ones about gardening – ahem!), natural cleaning tips, ideas for greener living, backyard adventures (as I attempt to transform an inner city rental backyard into an urban farming utopia – all with the blessings of the landlord!), healthy recipes that insert vegetables into toddlers with them being none the wiser, healthy recipes that grown-ups leeeerv, successful kid craft, entertainment solutions and party ideas, single parenting challenges and potential solutions, reviews about books, dvd’s and anything else I find worthy… oh, and the odd absurd adventure that life throws my way.


Yep, I don’t have mega-bucks, so all of my hints, tips, recipes and tricks are excellent for the fiscally challenged!

  1. You are just gorgeous! I love your site, and although I have only scratched the surface of it, I will be back to dive deeper into its nooks and crannies!!!

    Can I add a tip to your fridge freshener idea? Try cutting a lemon in half and scooping out the flesh, then fill with bicarb, stick it at the back of one of your fridge shelves, not only will the fridge stay fresh, but it will also smell lovely and citrusy fresh!

    I look forward to keeping up with your tips and ideas, 🙂

  2. Hi Cari, thanks for the warm n fuzzy compliment! It’s got my day off to a great start! I Leeerv the addition to my fresh fridge tip – that’s a terrific idea! I’m going to empty out a lemon half right now! Hope to see you here again real soon. Megs.

  3. Hi, saw your post on your plymouth hens. How is it going with them? I’m getting a few tomorrow. Only hope they are as friendly and docile as they say they are…

    1. Hi Mia,

      My Plymouth Rocks are great! They certainly are docile and pretty friendly. They don’t mind a pat and are easy to approach. I did find them a bit of a hassle in Spring when they decided to go broody. We got over that though and they are back to their normal silly selves. Megan 🙂
