a (very) short history of me and blogging June 29, 2014

Tomorrow is the last day of #blogjune. How quickly it has made June zip by. Over the month the challenge to post something everyday has really made me reflect on the way my blog has changed over the years. A couple of days ago I tried to remember when and why I started blogging in […]

the unexpected kindnesses of friends June 25, 2014

Completely stuck for today’s blogjune inspiration, I decided to see what I wrote about last year on June 25. Coincidentally, this June 25 and last June 25 have a lot in common. They are the days of the unexpected, kindly gift from friends. Last June 25 I was arriving at work, earring-less to be greeted […]

On not breaking the chain June 20, 2014

For anyone who follows me on instagram and twitter you will know I am doing the fmsphotoaday challenge. I was inspired by @jobeaz’s daily photos last year and decided to give it go myself for 2014. I am determined not to miss a day and I don’t think I have so far. I’m never going […]

The time has come…. June 14, 2014

There are many things I could write about today: what I watched on TV during the week my new sneakers how it’s time to start cooler weather exercise how even though I thought I’d go to the pool through the winter months I don’t really like the inside pool because of the chlorine-y humidity the […]

too much multi-tasking can actually be too much June 2, 2014

I’m coming to the conclusion that too much multi-tasking can be a bad thing. Let me try to explain. When I was working full-time I went all day….skipping from one thing to the next. It was unusual to go for 15 minutes on a single task uninterrupted by an “urgent” phone call, email or knock […]

of this and that…. May 24, 2014

Lots of things have been happening and I have once again turned into a slacker with blogging. So, to get ready for #blogjune I probably should write a few posts this week. Let’s start dear blog by catching up. I’ve been having a lovely time nearly all of the time over the last months. I’ve […]

blogjune: a lesson in writing June 28, 2013

Friday night doesn’t seem to be the best time for coming up with an interesting blog post. I am determined not to miss another day though with June fast coming to an end. If anything, this year’s blogjune has made me realise how little time I spend writing. If you can be bothered trawling back […]

Makeover March 3, 2013

Welcome one and all to the new and improved version of The Spiralling Shape. We have had a beautiful makeover thanks to the talented @Rocketpilot and we are now ready to face the world of the internets with renewed vigour. If my memory serves me correctly, I believe the first post on The Spiralling ¬†Shape […]

something profound tomorrow June 29, 2012

That’s it my friends. No sooner did it begin than the mid-year break is over. Five weeks between the end of Term 1 and the start of Term 2 sped by in a flurry of finalising grades, marking, preparing for a Moodle upgrade, recovering from a Moodle upgrade, finishing my own assignments, preparing for a […]

Stay tooned October 24, 2011

For a while there in the last weeks of winter I was starting wonder if I would ever get out of bed at a decent hour again. Even though my alarm would go off at 6:30 most days I would still be snuggled under the doona at 7:30….even 7:45 on a bad day. Then I […]
