I’m Karin. A FIFO wife to my sole mate (blurgh, vomit, but true), mum of two little peeps who keep me on my toes, an interiors addict, tea enthusiast and free spirit.
This FIFO (fly-in fly-out) lifestyle can be a tough gig at times and I’m basically trying not to loose myself in a pile of dirty nappies and Duplo!
After running away from home 7 years ago to the stunning Whitsundays and living a charmed life filled with yachts, champagne and the Great Barrier Reef, I have now arrived back in my home town of Brisbane with a new family in tow.
I love homes with beautiful interiors, t-shirts, jeans and rice paper rolls.
I love music at all volumes and at all times. This is my therapy.
I love filling my online shopping cart but never actually buying anything. Or buying it all and forgetting about it. Surprise mail in the form of boxes and credit card statements.
I drive the grammar gods nuts!
I am often a massive contradiction of terms.
I am a FOMO! My Fear Of Missing Out makes me indecisive as fuck.
I am not a delicate flower.
One day I will write the fiction that floats in my head.
I dream of a full night of uninterrupted sleep.
With lashings of sarcasm and humour, I tackle big world problems like candle maintenance, sandwich cutting and urine projection in boys. I am just happy to give you 5 minutes of chill or insight on how I see things as long as you are happy to squash perfection.
If you are looking for a chill pill or wanting to read about someone else’s conniption for a change, this blog is for you. I promise not to whinge but the occasional loss of mind is allowed for all.
