What were your best and worst bits of the week?


Another week has flown past and we’ve been run off our feet at Mamamia HQ. Just today we’ve talked about the women who sleep with other women for cash, we’ve helped solve your tech dilemmas with the new Mamamia Helpdesk, debated how many children are enough and read this beautiful post about perfection by Jacqueline Lunn.

Over the course of the week, we’ve talked about everything from anxiety and drugs to breast-feeding dolls and shock jocks. We drooled over Rob Lowe, confessed our book shames and discussed dating in 2011 and whether or not the phone call is dead.

Now it’s time to sit back and reflect the best and worst of our week.  Remember your best and worst don’t mind to be mind shattering or huge – just the parts of the week  that were best and worst FOR YOU.  It’s a cathartic and addictive thing to do so if you have not yet joined in today;s a good time to start.

This week we’ve decided to go around the office to share our best and worsts, so we’ll start


Best: The review for my book in Spectrum on Sunday – you can read it here.

Worst: I’m finding it really hard to get up in the morning.


Best: Parent Teacher interviews at school.  I am inordinately proud of my son

Worst: I burned my hand on the oven and stuck a huge sticky burns plaster over it.  Turns out I am allergic to sticky plaster.  Not pretty and VERY itchy.  Oh and then the burn got infected.  I think the doctor may have said I should never cook again.  At least that is what I am telling my husband for the meantime


Best: Meeting the lovely Bec Sparrow in person, who popped into the office earlier this week.

Worst: My husband being away, time has seemed to slow down the closer the date gets to him coming back.


Best: Interviewing Ingrid for the story about bi-curious women and sex. I love a good story and this one was utterly fascinating. Well, I thought so anyway!

Worst: I was sick and the MM office made me stay home for two days. It was very lonely. I briefly considered making a friend called Wilson out of a Volleyball.


Best: Lana brought red velvet cupcakes into the office and I am still thinking about them, they were that yummy.

Worst: The Internet ran out in my house so when I go home I can’t do anything. Work or assignments or Facebook or ANYTHING.  I have had to resort to going to a different friend’s house every night and begging to use their Internet.

What were your best and worst bits of the week? And can we also suggest you pop over to the Mamamia Facebook page and join the debate over whether our new green office rug was a good or bad choice?


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