I’m Jacq, and this is where I write when I want to talk about something other than parenting, or playground design (I’ve got separate blogs for those topics, if you’re interested).

If you don’t know me, here’s the brief biography: married for a very long time (nearly 18 years so far); two kids (twins, boy and girl); and currently half-way through a four-year Honours degree in Urban Planning. Stuff I enjoy includes reading, writing, random pop culture, keeping a bullet journal (despite very low levels of artistic talent), planning stuff (both from the macro ‘urban’ perspective and the micro ‘my kids’ birthday parties’ perspective), hanging out with my friends and family, and drinking too much and pretending to be half my age.
