Well hi! I’m Zoe, an inner West Sydney-sider living in a constant state of domestic mayhem with my husband and two slightly nuts, extremely loud but ridiculously adorable children, Mr E, five and Miss M, two. What seems like a lifetime ago, I lived a very different existence in magazine land, interviewing celebs, going on free international holidays, attending premieres and functions several nights a week and score so much free makeup that I could have started my own online beauty business.
I was single, footloose and fancy free. Sometimes dinner was nothing but canapes and champers. Good times.
Fast forward to now and things are… a little different. I now buy most of my beauty products from… Coles. In fact, my idea of an exciting evening out is going to… Coles. I spend a LOT of time there, possibly due to a lack of meal planning and always forgetting the one thing I went there to buy in the first place.
Suffice to say, I’m not exactly all over this whole motherhood caper. My cooking skills leave much to be desired, with attempts at baking generally ending up a bit like this.
But I can’t be the only achingly average mother and cook out there, can I? So here’s the deal, I’ll happily share with you my cooking fails and parenting challenges in the hope that you can learn from my disasters (or at the very least snigger at my expense). Other than that, the plan is to share a few laughs and the rest I’m just making up as I go. Life on the edge, wheeee! Yeah, I don’t get out much.
