Avast Australia Fair

In my quest to introduce my children to a world of culture, I have to admit I occasionally forget our own. So when Raffles came home from pre-school yesterday singing the Australian National Anthem, “Avast Our ‘Stralia Fair”, which he is learning as part of the school Christmas concert (no, I don’t get the connection […] Read more…

The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree

Hearing suspicious whispering and giggling coming from the tiny travellers bedroom this morning I approached with some trepidation, half expecting to find my beloved babies recreating Jackson Pollock’s Blue Poles on the floor or building a scale model of Hiroshima. Needless to say I was somewhat surprised, and mightily relieved, at the surreal sight of […] Read more…

Little boy with a snowball. Thredbo with kids

Thredbo with kids: Ice Magic

“Mama, snow is cold”  declares Raffles  as we reach Thredbo. The boy is a genius. We’ve arrived at Thredbo Village just as tiny white flakes of snow start to fall from the sky. Perfect. Timing. It’s our first time in Thredbo with kids, and my first time in two decades, and we are all mesmerised […] Read more…

Whole lotta fun in Thredbo

Thredbo: Breaking the ice

Athletic is a word that I’m almost certain has never been used in a sentence that also contains my name. You see, I have all the sporting prowess of lichen and the agility of the average barnacle. Can I catch a ball? Not if the future of mankind depended on it. Swimming, you ask? I’m […] Read more…

Ships Galley

Voyager of the Seas: Kitchen Ahoy!

My kitchen is quite small. And when I say ‘small’ I mean that if it belonged to a guy he’d be buying a monster truck to compensate… if you catch my drift. I’ve always said it’s not the size that matters, it’s what you do with it that counts. Of course, I’ve usually been lying. […] Read more…

Oh ship // Family fun on Voyager of the Seas

“Mama, I think it grew!” announces Raffles, stupefied, as we prepare to board Royal Caribbean’s Voyager of the Seas in Singapore. This isn’t our first voyage on this lovely lady but her enormous bulk is no less impressive the second time around.  In fact, I think we’d all forgotten just how buxom a beauty she […] Read more…

How to throw a kids viking party

My baby boy has just celebrated his fourth birthday in ferocious style at a much pleaded for Viking party. Dreading the thought of making a kids viking party happen (given how few actual Vikings I’m acquainted with to go to for tips and advice) I tried frequent subtle, and not so subtle, hinting to gently […] Read more…

Raffles first souffle

Soufflé au Fromage & Tarte Fine Aux Pommes

Woken by a little voice squealing “Bonjour mama, it’s Paris day”, I am dragged from bed (kicking and screaming) for the can’t possibly be delayed task of looking up France and, more specifically, Paris in an atlas. Marveling at its distance from Australia, Raffles is eager to get started on our “day in Paris” so […] Read more…

The Eats World in Paris

To be Franc

Eager to earn my son a first stamp in his gastronomic passport, tomorrow we begin our culinary tour of the globe – without heading further than the grocer. I offered my pint-sized partner in crime the choice of any destination in the world from which to start our adventure in cultural consumption and without even a […] Read more…
