  • My new neck guard

    Two games ago, I got high sticked in the throat. It wasn’t intentional – we were playing hard and it was so fast I’m not even sure how it happened, but seemingly out of nowhere I felt a stick blade on my throat – but it was hard and down I went. All I could […]

  • My New Bar Cart

    Because of the state of the world, I decided I needed a bar cart. Ok, that’s not actually true. I actually decided I needed a bar cart because my friend Amy has an awesome bar cart and I was super jealous and also because I was sick of storing my booze in a broom closet. […]

  • Happy adoptiversary to my kitties!

    Three years ago today I adopted my little fuzzballs, Watson & Crick. When I first got them, they were very much people cats, but they’ve gotten even more cuddly and affectionate. Crick started out as a kitty who would like to be curled up next to me on the couch or in the bed, but now […]

  • Another Running Season = Another New Pair of Running Shoes

    Just like last year around this time, I found that my shins were kind of hurting for the first several kilometres when I went out for a run, which is a sure fire sign that I needed new running shoes! Fortunately, when I popped by the Running Room on the weekend, they were having a sale, […]

  • Gone With The Wind

    Totally thought this posted a few days ago, but just came onto my blog to write a new posting and discovered I hadn’t. Anyway, here it is now! So it turns out that I bought my last phone a really, really long time ago. Like more than 3 years ago, which in phone-years, means my […]

  • My New Messenger Bag

    Generally speaking, I’m a cheap, cheap frugal woman. I prefer buying my clothes at thrift stores over paying retail prices1 ,2. I collect AirMiles and Shoppers Optimum points and various other points that I can turn into money. Today I was very excited to learn that the cobbler near my office has a “buy 10, get the 11th one […]

  • Crazy Cat Lady Achievement Unlocked!

    So I won a free photo collage mug. And I’m sure you can figure out what kind of photos I put on it! Sorry the photos of the mug suck – the mug is really shiny, so you can see the reflection of me taking the photo in the mug. I’m a crazy cat lady, […]

  • Pedi

    So today my sister and I went to the spa for pedicures because we are going to my sister’s best friend’s wedding on New Year’s Eve and I needed to have toenails that match my fancy dress. We may also have consumed some wine while we had our fancy pedicures. #RoughLife

  • The saga of my Irish marble ring

    When I was in Ireland, I bought myself a Connemara marble ring, which I love and wear most days. One day back in August1, I looked down at my ring and noticed that a chunk of the marble was missing: I knew I’d bought it at the Connemara Marble store that we’d stopped at on our […]

  • I bought some stuff to hang on my walls

    I’ve been looking for something to hang on one of my living room walls for a while, but I hadn’t been able to find something I liked that was big enough to put on this big empty wall, with the exception of a $2200 piece that I saw at Granville Island, but I just couldn’t justify […]
