It turns out, ‘simplifying your life` isn’t as simple as I thought it would be. One of my personal goals for this year is to simplify my life. I am chasing a slower and a more meaningful life. My ultimate goal is to live a life based on good decisions and values, spend as much quality time with my family and friends, and do all of those things I personally...

What has happened to this month? Just three days ago, it was exactly one month since we celebrated Christmas, and here we are now a month on, and back to the school routine.   I would LOVE the ability to turn back time – I really want the holidays back! Its the end of January and so I thought I would do my end of the month ‘Taking Stock’ post. So...

Hello 2017! How did 2016 come and go so quickly? This last year literally flashed before my eyes, and really impressed upon me the importance of having a plan and a goal, and to make not just the big moments in life count, but also the little ones. A brand new year means ‘a fresh start’. A new beginning. A fresh start means we get to make changes to the areas...

It may be the very first day of January 2017, but I wanted to finish and post my ‘Taking Stock- December 2016’ post.   Pip Lincolne introduced me to the idea of ‘Taking Stock’ posts a while back, and so it seemed like a good idea to complete the year with one.

Since we last spoke, life got a little busy with end of year school related busyness and then we headed off to the Gold Coast for our family holiday.  We had ten glorious days on the Gold Coast. I got a brilliant deal at the Q1 via an eBay deal. I know what your thinking, “You got a great holiday deal on eBay?  That sound crazy!” Well yes it was crazy...

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. Cooking : Spaghetti Bol with home made pasta. Drinking : Soda water and lemon. Reading:   Happier with Gretchen Rubin (again), The Subtle art...

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. And then I had a moment of feeling blue, until it suddenly...
