I'm the Busy Bee. You can call me Bee. Or Busy. Or the Busy Bee.
Perhaps you could call me a better life investigator. I want to find the best way to live this ferris wheel called life and bring back some balance.
I'm a corporate escapee (but mainly because I love the term!!) who now works part-time in an office job and has two young kids: Princess Sparkles (4) and Captain Destroyer (2). I have a delightful husband (Mr Busy Bee) and a very dumb dog.
I'm notorious for both multi-tasking and procrastinating, although I'm trying to overcome both of these afflictions.
My obsessions are nice stationery and collecting quotes and ideas. I have multiple cute notepads and coloured pens stashed around the place with funny quotes and quirks written in them. I know that I have to stop buying expensive coloured pens, but I just can't do it.
Apart from my expensive stationery problem, I'm really very sensible and practical. Although I always dreamed of being a writer, I listened to my sensible self and sent myself off to university to get a sensible degree, followed by a very sensible corporate job.
Now that I have children, I write to have something in my life that is not very sensible. I tried to write a novel, but couldn't keep myself in the headspace for long enough while trying to maintain some semblance of control in my life with two little cherubs, a house that doesn't keep itself and a terribly sensible job.
I love to discuss the meaning of life, why on earth anyone would have kids and when we will REALLY see gender equality. So here I am, writing about those things.
Follow me and chat as I explore the way to a simpler life. I always enjoy some good banter.
