Hi I’m Melinda

I would describe myself as quiet, friendly and family oriented. I love movies, eating out, the beach and spending time with family and friends.

Some of my bad habits include:

* Leaving tissues and bobby pins all over the house

* Leaving cupboard doors open

* Delivering empty threats instead of consequences

* A very messy car

I  live in the south eastern suburbs of Melbourne with my husband Alan and two boys Jeremy (5 y.o) and Elliott (1 y.o) .

I have studied education and psychology at University and am currently a stay at home mum.

I chose Lemon and Sugar as a name for my blog because of my son’s love of lemon and sugar pancakes and because it represents the sour and sweet – the highs and lows of life.

My blog is a bit of a work in progress. I will post about parenting, family and books I have read. I will also post my attempts at creative writing, photography and cooking.

I hope you enjoy my blog. Thanks for reading.
