Have you ever wanted to take stock of your life in a simple manner….I was recently introduced to this idea, so here goes!  🙂 Here’s my list… Making :  A list of ingredients to go buy for some Christmas baking.

Recently, I listened to one of my many favourite podcasts ‘Straight and Curly’ with kelly Exeter and Carly Jacobs, who were talking about how important it is to have hobbies.   At the time I was quick to react with some quick ‘I don’t have time for any hobbies!’ type of remark.

Today we pick up daughter 2 and 3 from camp.   They attended a three night four day music adventure camp at bribie island this week and had a ball.    I don’t think they have stopped talking about camp.   It’s great to have them home!
