About the author

Lyn began writing as a precocious child to escape a childhood poignantly and irrevocably marred by embarrassing parents.

Now a self-proclaimed adult; Lyn likes to be thought of as insightful, articulate, and achingly clever, but she’s just a bit of a nerd, really.

Lyn lives a joyously vibrant but exhaustingly s7300186democratic life of domestic bliss with her terrifyingly pubescent boys who studiously ignore, grunt and pffft at her ill-conceived efforts at professionalism, cooking and motherly-love. Said lads appear to be totally unharmed by her late-blooming single-dom, despite being keen to see her settle down, (of course they’re also keen for her to become a best-selling author so she can work from home, and for school to be deemed a ‘crime against humanity’ and subsequently abolished, so they may be waiting a while!).

She thinks bloggers are, generally, self-indulgent tossers with nothing fresh, poignant or vaguely relevant to say – and thus, considers herself well qualified for the task.

    It’s romantic and insightful. Life should’ve given human enough innocence or the other way around. Love your airy, light style.

    Just an fyi from one blogger to another, this person has totally ripped off your work and put it on a different blog (that sells ads…the nerve) without benefit of a link to your http://get-aboutwine.blogspot.com/2010/03/wine-for-non-wankers.html

    Just a heads up. You can file a copyright violation with Blogger/Google here:

    This person stole my content too – lets get this thief shut down!

    Quite a dilemma you’ve created for me here Lyn. Two free periods this morning. Do I mark Year 8’s Australian playwright assessments as I planned to do or do I sit here with my peppermint tea and read on? I think the answer is clear.

  6. jasonacamara says:

    I agree with a lot of what you said. I’ve just never heard it put together so well. Thanks! I want to share this with all my over indulgent friends.

  7. DAVID COLES shares his personal journey to waking up on Earth says:

    So you think what you say is relevant but we other poor dummy’s out here are not. Well who the hell do you think you are saying such things? Hmmmm?

    Serious for a moment.: I am loving it. Your wit and precision of thought is right up my alley.

    And…….wait…..I think I might have something to say also. Could that be possible. Well you will have to find out!

      hahaha! On the contrary, my dear man, I KNOW that what I have to say is irrelevant, but I say it anyway – and with gusto! hahaha.
      Thanks for your kind words, David. I’m pleased that you stumbled by, and that I’ve made you smile.

    Quite witty!


    I agree, I have nothing fresh to say, therefore I choose to post some of my drawings.
    Nothing under the sun is new, but I’m sure my aliens are relatively unique 🙂
