  • Change
    on Nov 14, 2015 in change family hills laurel hedge
    My last post has been up for 19 months & today, on a beautiful warm, sunny Spring day in the Adelaide Hills, it's finally being replaced. This past year has been my toughest & most challenging & although I've attempted to write about what...
  • Winter Sun
    on Apr 7, 2014
    Max Pritchard is a living legend - one of South Australia's best architects, I would sell MOTH, all five kids + puppy Lulu in a heartbeat to live in one of his houses. A neighbour around the corner had a devastating fire a couple of years ago, which...
  • Valentine's Day In The BedroomLong-suffering readers of The Hedge are well aware that this 70's house is full of weird architectural foibles. Beams traverse every single room & when we moved in 8 years ago, they were still in their rough, raw, murky brown, untouched state. Th...
  • Sunday Lunch
    on Jan 24, 2014 in friends garden retreats weekend
    Care to join me for Sunday lunch here - it's gorgeous isn't it! We could probably give the throw rugs the flicko though, it's way too hot for those. It's been a silly week - an 0330 start on Wednesday morning, a long drive to the Airport, the first p...
  • A New Year At The Hedge
    on Jan 19, 2014 in bedroom christmas koalas melbourne work
    It's high time to rid your blog rolls of the Hedge's Merry Christmas post, so just a quick update on what's been happening here. Chrissie came & went in a flash & baby Gracie now has a direct line to Peppa Pig via her new Peppa cell phone.
  • Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas!
    on Dec 24, 2013 in christmas family summer work
    So this is Christmas......another year almost over. Work has just finished & I'm done, totally & absolutely. 2013 has been full of challenges far greater than I'd expected, on many, many levels. Things have been tough, some things I've handle...
  • Hello It's Me!
    on Nov 22, 2013
    I'm hanging my head in shame dear Hedgies, it's been too, too long between posts. Some of you know that I started a new job in August & that it's been whirlwind. Still sales, but with a big, big clinical support focus. So I'm back to standing in...
  • My Mate Heston
    on Aug 10, 2013 in kitchens man-of-the-house recipes
    ' Mills, Mills, ya wouldn't have my mate Heston's email address handy would ya?' 'Err no MOTH & I'm almost too scared to ask why you need it.' 'Well love, I need to let him know that he's a bloody legend!' 'Um, do explain MOTH.' 'Well ya k...
  • Oh The Pressure!
    on Aug 7, 2013 in man-of-the-house renovations
    MOTH reckons old age & a nagging wife have slowed down the completion of the upstairs home office to an elderly crawl. That combined with the fact that I ripped down the rubbish window coverings & tore up the carpet last year & binned the...
  • On The Mark
    on Jul 26, 2013 in hotel new york relaxing shopping weekend
     MOTH's making a last ditch effort finishing off the reno of our large upstairs Home Office. It's looking good, but with no heating, window or floor coverings, it's bitterly cold up there.....not a very conducive atmosphere for drying paint. A...
