Another parent blog about how hard they work and how amusing their children are blah blah blah? In some respects, yes (just a little bit). In others, no. Think of it more as the blog of someone who was once intelligent but after years of working in an office and watching too much TV needed to get her brain into gear again. It’s not a day-by-day account of my life – believe me that would be dull. Crumbs & Pegs is about the things that inspire me enough to put fingertips to keyboard – my life as a parent, rants, current affairs, sexism, great products – and all generally with a dash of wicked humour. And lest you should think ‘crumbs’ and ‘pegs’ suggests the musings of a domestic goddess, it’s more lofty than that:
All our words are but crumbs that fall down from the feast of the mind – Kahlil Gibran
All words are pegs to hang ideas on – Henry Ward Beecher
Whether these quotes inspire you or make you reach for the bag labelled ‘sick’, I hope you enjoy the blog.

Last but not least, I’m not an Australian singer and never have been – that’s Helen Reddy.
