About Me

Hi, I'm Lisa. I'm a wife and mama of two, living in Brisbane, Queensland. I blog about family, food, lifestyle, sustainability and everything in between. In a previous life, I was a full time IT consultant, but now do that part time while being a full time mama (which really counts as a job and a half, right?!).

My company has never had titles for employees, so over the years I've been whatever I needed to be to get the job done: tester, project lead, senior consultant, trainer. Now, the title that brings me the most satisfaction? Mama.

I don't do labels but I do parent with love. This means the best choices I can which work best for my family and myself. Maybe that's some baby wearing, some cloth nappies, some home made clothes and some organic food, some of which we've grown. Other times, not.

I'm a vegetarian (vegan at home), I love coffee, cupcakes, and shoes. I like to surround myself with things that make me happy, like candles, shiny things, delicious lip glosses, and lets not forget food! I'm a bit eco friendly, a bit of a tech geek, an enthusiastic cyclist, a lover of good exercise clothing, a home gardener and more than a little sassy.

Why, with a fork? Well, I'm always up for an adventure, especially if there's food involved! I'll be there... with a fork!

WithAFork is a place for me to write about my life and share the things that are going on in it right now... things that I like, things that inspire me, random things and probably a few rants too.

As always, stay awhile, browse through the posts and comment. You can also find me over on Facebook.


  1. I love the title of your blog, very evocative for me... my dear mother and grandmothers cooked with forks and to this day when my Mum is tired she will say 'get the fork, I'm done'. Enjoyed my little taste of your blog.

    1. Thank you! I love that food can evoke so many memories! My grandmother used to say 'stick a fork in me, I'm done!'

  2. You sound like an awesome human being (and mum)! Thanks for stopping by at my blog :) I agree - your title of your blog, I love it!
