What did you talk about this week?

It’s that time of the week when I share some of the wide variety of topics of conversation that came up through work or play (I'll leave it to you to figure out which is which) in the course of life in a pink fibro.

Moving out, skylights, formica tables, party plan businesses, superannuation, writing, Lisa Heidke, Easter eggs (and how I'm still eating them), Kylie Ladd, The Wire, headaches, daytime sleeps, expressive reading, how water makes the plants grow, how plants grow very slowly so it's not worth waiting around to watch, Avon, marketing, grant applications, Dick Smith, marriage, sustainable gardens, Twitter (mostly how it's a hugely enjoyable time suck), One Wise Owl, property investment, The Last Post (and how it always bring tears to my eyes), guitar lessons, Little Ninjas, gymnastics, Carl Williams, chequebook journalism, the NRL salary cap, footy tipping, press releases, dentistry, council campaigns, KRudd, weeding...

What came up at your house this week?


  1. hmmmmm, there are so many topics here I'd LOVE to chat to you about. It's no good, I will have to call you tomorrow!

  2. Okay, will try to do this justice: Lisa Heidke, conceivery, infertility, anxiety, passion, wishcasting, BIRTHDAYS, Kylie Ladd, my other Kylie, blame, stereotyping and labeling, hair products, pooping for Tim Tams and Thunder from Down Under. Hey, we have a few of the same! ;)

  3. Shit cannot do this off to the top of my head. I love this idea but.

    Rain, twitter, Tom & Jerry, Lego BBQ, Capacity to fit lots of people in to house for BBQ if it rains, Hidden undies behind the toilet brush holder, young graffiti artist, confiscation of swords, irrational clients, honey chicken, mexican dinners, P & O cruising, short break to Broadbeach, Anzac Day parade.

    Have a great week x

  4. The thing I love about the Friday post is the variety of topics. As someone said last week, it just goes to show that we get beyond 'How are you?' and 'How's the weather?". Though we didn't get to hidden undies behind the toilet brush holder...or pooping for Tim Tams!

  5. Heeding the call from twitter here's mine:
    cocktails, dovecotes, vegie gardens, organic meat, roller derby, homework, DEADLINES (that may have been screeched), netball, Provence, MasterChef, lawns, watering the garden, unseasonable swimming, duck confit, synchronising calendars, phew.

  6. 3yo, for some unknown reason, goes to the toilet, does a wee, takes his undies off and hides them behind the toilet brush. I keep finding them. Not even weed on?

  7. Out of sight, out of mind...Isn't toilet training a joy?

  8. Worms (the bottom kind, kids are fascinated, though wormless), Tupac, having a gap year (I need one), publicists, spam filters, conferences and their worth, hair dye. Ugh, can't think. Too busy having a cold!

  9. OK, I'll give it a shot:

    Books, toddler, animal noises, whining about brother, bitching about brother's girlfriend, setting times for play dates, hand foot and mouth disease (sister's kids have it), shiatsu massage, holidays, name change on Twitter, being all serious...


  10. I talk so much it's difficult to break it down but I'll have a try, in no specific order -
    girlfriends, driving lessons, toe plaster, fleas, Germany, addictions, drug dealers, muay thay kick boxing, vomit, dementia, gecko poo, Twitter, change of career, K Rudd, Anna Bligh, health care, annoying neighbours, not getting enough (can be whatever u want to think lol), magnums and probation periods.

  11. Wow, people talked about me? Saying how hot I was? That'll be it.
    Hmmm. Our week has been fairly limited in topics courtesy of recent move, but here goes: Broome, it's hot, it's really hot, can I leave the airconditoner on overnight?, starting school, crying at school, can Aborigines be my friend?, man it's hot, you want to do WHAT in this heat?, Cable beach, manta rays, how hot do you think it is today?, hang your bathers on the verandah, put your board away, BBQ for dinner?, liking school, The Wire (OMG they shot.... never mind), cool school (Mum, did you know that they use a didgeridoo to play Advance Australia Fair at assembly?), dolphins, beach, sunscreen, ice, surf, fragipani, hot hot hot.

    Phew. Think that's it. We are LOVING life up here but did I mention it's hot?

    Great post!

  12. grocery system that's all i can remember for now.

  13. Isn't it funny that women all have this dialogue that bubbles and bounces around renting space in our heads. Do men have the same?
    Great stuff here... following. :) Erica

  14. Angelina Ballerina. I have spent waaaaay too much time talking about Angelina Ballerina with my daughter this week. I need to get out more. I can't even pronounce "superannuation" anymore.


Thanks for popping by the Fibro. I love to hear from you!
