About Me…

Lisamaree and MitchellWhat is a Sprog? 

It is a colloquial term used in the nether regions of the planet (Australia and New Zealand) to describe ones’ offspring, aka children.  This blog started off many MANY moons ago to document my experiences as a first time mum but as with all things it has evolved into so much more.

Who am I?

I’m Lisamaree, an ex-pat Kiwi (New Zealander … not fruit) who considers Sydney as home. Married to Superman (aka Titus), in 2008 we took our adventure and our two sprogs to Hong Kong and had a literal world of adventures for almost 10 years before returning to Australia to settle down for a while.

What’s my blog about?

It’s about rediscovering my passions and being a geek mum. Transformers, superheroes, comics, sci-fi … BRING IT ON! Mostly Transformers because, well, I’m biased to a fabulous franchise that gives me fond memories of my childhood, I collect Transformers figures and my kids both love Transformers too!

It’s about travel and our experiences – mostly with the kids – as we explore this wonderful blue rock we call Earth.

It’s about Hong Kong. Exploring the city we called home for 10 years – traditionally, culturally and from a parent’s perspective.

It’s about experimenting with food and in particular cakes and cake decorating – something I have discovered a joy for while living in Hong Kong.

It’s about life. It’s about change and a way to express my thoughts on a range of topics, often related to the challenges of being such a well traveled and multicultural family.

We pay our own way through the restaurants and places I review and rate throughout this blog – all the opinions come from our own personal experiences. No one bribes us in any way shape or form to give the opinions expressed here.

Meet the Sprogs:

Bethany, our charismatic and adventurous, but somewhat shy sprog, was born in 2004. She loves giraffes, Superman (obsessed with Dean Cain since she was nigh on 18 months old … and still obsessed), and teaching me how to be the mum of a *gulp* teenager.

Mitchell, sprog number deux, arrived after a dramatic and stressful pregnancy early in 2007. He’s obsessed with Transformers (Bless my heart!) and commercial aircraft.

Thanks for coming along for the ride and experiencing Life … with SPROGS!
