has created an amusing mini zine: 6 Things To Do Instead of What You Love, that is all too real!
She shares 6 anecdotes of what happens when she tries to adult but becomes so overwhelmed with the tasks at hand that she doesn't get too much done in the process - something we can all relate to.

Came to work in my slippers (on accident) and left my nice shoes on the kitchen table. Good thing I have an extra pair of shoes at work #oops #mybossdoesntcare #lifefail
A fool proof method, always 😂 Tag someone who may have needed this tip this weekend!
Life is a little overwhelming right now. Mainly though this is pressure I’ve put on myself and it manifests into stress, having a short fuse and definitely not being the best version of myself.
I just turned 40 and got engaged. Now we are battling a shit arse sleep regression and planning a wedding whilst@planning
for Christmas, working and trying to enjoy life and the moments of our family growing up together.
Sometimes when you try to focus on a lot of things you end up focusing on nothing.
Yesterday afternoon out of the blue Oscar walked up to me and gave me a kiss and a hug. He the went to Tasha who was next to me and did the same. Then he pulled our heads to together to kiss each other then he stiff there and put his little arms around both of us and hugged us. Henry was also squashed in the middle too.
He knows little of the practicalities of what’s going on around him but we forget sometimes that they feel and can sense of the mood....
The past few days have been a bit of parenting fail or a life fail. Today is a new day, tomorrow is Friday then it’s the weekend so here’s to many more cuddles from the kids and Tooshi. ❤️
when everyone who gets to know you more ends up liking you less
It’s one of those kinds of days 😂 Tag someone who just can’t figure it out today
steals your shoelace and you have to improvise with some yarn.
Sometimes my crafter habits create legitimate real-life solutions. ——To be fair, he borrowed my shoelace like a year ago when his broke but then FAILED TO GIVE IT BACK (and I just noticed)

That moment when you see your friend post an awesome picture so you try to recreate it just to realize your coffee is too hot, your kid is in the background and you need way more coffee to be one of the pretty people 😂😂😂 #lifefail
When you’ve been so busy working you didn’t have time to eat anything. So you splurge on a really nice pasta dish and can’t wait to eat it. Then it falls off the counter before you ever get a bite. All I have in my apartment is a can of tuna a jar of peanut butter. Not the dinner I was looking forward to. #lifefail #nodinnerforme #justmyluck #starving #isitfridayyet #heartbroken
An update from the phantom failure: if you’re going to come at me with the racist legacy of my home state, then at least do it right. Don’t plagiarize your attempt and be sure to cover all your bases. You get an F for this poor excuse for shade and fail the course. In this case, the course is life.
Sweater life💛is the best life! This Sweater is the softest thing ever, I could live in it! And I’m totally obsessed with this color lately! .
And don’t mind all the bags I was supposed to drop them off at the Salvation Army TWO weeks ago 🤦🏼♀️ #lifefail
So I learnt a valuable #pregnancy
life lesson today... Know when to give up wearing your wedding and engagement rings 💍 •
After four hours of trying to remove the rings ourselves and the swelling only increasing up to the hospital it was 🏥 •
I thought I would be in for a very long wait but luckily I was seen very quickly. The staff tried their hardest for another hour or so to remove the rings before we made the decision to cut them off. The swelling was starting to get painful and I had little colour left in my finger. •
The doctor who cut them of could not have been more apologetic and genuinely wished he had another option. My wedding band needed to be significantly stretched to remove it from my finger because of how stuck it was. •
Definitely not the end of the world as I know I will be able to get them repaired but to anyone else that is #pregnant
treat this as a #publicserviceannouncement
