You can never share too much.

Well you can - you can over share information, but you can never be too kind, too sharing, too giving.
Unless it's ice cream.

You should never share your ice cream.

Last week I was chatting with someone who came to see me about starting a social media account for their business.

We chatted for a really long time and one of the questions she asked me was what rules do I use for deciding if I will share something?


I suggested that I didn't really have any rules, but as we talked more I realised that I do. I have a big fat rule.

If I like something and I think that my readers or my followers or one other person would like to know about it, then I share it. If I don't like it or think my little blog community will roll their eyes at it then I don't share it - unless I am saying, hey, take a look at this doozy.

But sometimes I forget to share so today here is a little sharing:

At the moment I am:

Reading:    Caleb's Crossing - finally, I have wanted to read this for ages.
Eating:       Orange Jaffa biscuits from Aldi. 
Shopping:  These sweet journals will be for the girls to fill with their thoughts, words and pictures. 
Watching:  The Time of Our Lives on Sunday nights, ABC, 8.30. 
Wearing:    R.M Williams shirts for work. No one else has them and they iron really well.
Planning:   What we might do on our summer holidays this year. I would like it be here.
Thinking:   Too much about things that don't matter.
Wanting:    My skin to stop thinking I am 16.

Got anything to share?


  1. Hmmmm I like your holiday option. I am trying to book a QLD holiday but the flights are just killers. No matter how I cross my eyes or poke my tongue out whilst reading the options it is too hard. Just need to bite the bullet and do it!

    1. We are the same, such a shame the drive is so long. One day.

  2. Caleb's crossing is on my to read list, my gosh my to read list is soooo long.

  3. I have loved all of Geraldine Brooks' other books, I hope this is just as great, will let you know.

  4. Timely little piece, Claire. I'm teetering on the precipice of do I share/ what do I share/ is it too much etc. I struggle with it daily but it's nice to hear the guidelines I've loosely set for myself are used by others like yourself too.

    P.S How GOOD is The Time Of Our Lives...?! Obsessed!

  5. awesome decision on the summer holiday front.

    1. I don't think it is the best of weather there in January, but I am certainly adding it to my bucket list of holiday locations.

  6. You must tell us what you think of your book! It's on my list too. x


Commenting brings amazing luck, you must try it and see how you go!
