Comparison is the thief of joy! There’s no truer a sentence than that one right there. I know this. I practice loads of gratitude and always try to talk myself around and give myself a little face slap if I find myself trying to size up something someone else has that I don’t. But, I’m human and the above […]
When I was younger I thought confidence was something you could fake. I thought that if you really just acted confident, that you were confident. You could succeed in most scenarios purely by acting. I lived out my late teens and my twenties with this kind of false bravado. Throwing myself into situations with little […]
I have two kids. One almost-two, very busy explorer, aptly named Scout, and one quite inquisitive, articulate, sometimes challenging and very excitable, six-year-old, named Sailor. Both girls and both thirsty for world experiences, even at their young ages. This worries me to a certain extent. None more so than the other day when Sailor hit me with some pretty big and hard-to-answer questions. In the space […]
I cannot begin to tell you how much I have wanted to write something for The Chezzi Diaries these last few weeks, but I just haven’t been able to, for a few reasons that I’ll try explain in this post. Usually everyone is telling me off because I write too much, but I don’t think […]
Well, I should rename my website The Airport Diaries, because I’m back at my little local airport today and I finally have time to be able to jot down some words about last weekend and my time at the Logies! Why am I at the airport you may ask? Or you may not have asked, […]
It’s been just over three weeks since I got the phone call that my husband, Grant, had been in an accident. And it’s been just over three weeks since I’ve had time to sit down and collect my thoughts for a few minutes without being interrupted by screaming children wanting my attention, a puppy attacking my heels and feet wanting […]
Sailor asked me to jump on the trampoline with her the other day. Grant was playing with Scout, so I agreed. It’s been quite some time since I’ve been on a trampoline. I started thinking about just how long as we were jumping and laughing… and then BOOM! A little bit of wee came out […]
This week, we welcomed a new addition to our family; an 8-week-old Cavoodle puppy that Sailor has named Princess Popcorn. None of us have slept for the past few nights. It’s like having a newborn baby. I have a feeling our lives will never be the same thanks to this adorable little chestnut fluff ball. […]
It’s Television’s night of nights. Its glamour on steroids. I had always wanted to attend. I had worked the event a few times, but never as a guest. Everyone always looked like they had such a great time, I had serious FOMO! I dreamt one day to walk that red carpet, looking tall and graceful […]
Chezzi as she calls herself, is not regal per say, but she is always courteous and best of all, she quite loves Corgis, so we are reasonably fond of her
The Queen – Madame Tussards
Chezzi knows nothing about football but by gosh she can tackle hard! Read her stuff please. Get her off my back
Greg – NFL wannabe
I’ve never trained anyone quite like her. She makes lots of odd sounds and pulls strange faces when working hard. I have to push her though as she prefers to chat. Um, she tried really hard. She’s super enthusiastic and not scared to sweat buckets! I love that about her. She brightens up my day with her mad life stories!
Bev – The Personal Trainer
Scout – Daughter (18mths)
Cheryl was always dramatic. At 4, she told us she wanted to be like Miss Piggy & work in TV! She never drew breath but was always a sweet child. Wild but very sweet.
Peter & Shelley Rogers – The Parents
Butterflies are always following me, everywhere I go.
Mariah Carey – International Singing Superstar
Chezzi thinks she’s hilarious but in fact, she laughs at her own jokes and often loses it before even getting to the punchline. I’m much funnier. She gets a lot of her material from me.
Lisa (Moons) Mooney – The Best Friend
A gifted storyteller with self-deprecating wit; tales of Chez’s day-to-day life need no exaggeration. If it’s going to happen, it’s going to happen to Chez! Over a decade of friendship, she has never ceased to amaze me with her strength, courage – and hilarity! I’m so glad her humour and wisdom has been given a platform to be shared with the world. Bookmark this blog!
Kate Fox- Producer, Writer, Avid Exfoliator
She is my wife and I’m scared of her, because she’s tougher than me therefore I can only say nice things about her! She IS unique and funny, so read her stuff. Please!
Grant Denyer – Husband
Mummy is a good cookerer. She’s pretty nice to me most of the time and she reads me books. I love her because she gives me nice food but she can sometimes be a bit rough when brushing my hair.
