Best and worst bits of the week

My book

It’s come to that time of the week again where we share our best and worst moments. And what a week it’s been here at Mamamia- as February kicks on and we get closer and closer to the launch of Mamamia 3.0, we get busier every day.

This week we’ve discussed everything from men looking after kids to Tony Abbott to Black Swan. We’ve shared our dreams, our First World Problems and our biggest Book Fails. We watched the top Superbowl ads and an interview with Jenny Macklin about the Paid Parental Leave scheme.

Now, if you’re new to Best and Worst, remember your ‘worsts’ can be as trivial or as tragic as you like.

I’ll go first….

BEST: I received the first copies of my new book. This is always a slightly weird moment. It’s the 3rd book I’ve done and it’s always a little…..scary? Confronting? Exciting? All of the above and about 199 other adjectives. Booktopia was lovely enough to write their review here and you can pre-order it from the same place online if you can’t wait until it goes on sale in two weeks.

WORST: Week two of school for my daughter and it’s slowly sinking in that THIS IS IT. She was totally over it by the end of the first week and I’m trying not to say “one week down, 13 years to go”. I think it’s going to be a long term.

What were your best and worst bits of the week?

And here are the pics we’re talking about this week:
