The school holidays are here and I don’t think I have to remind you all that I am ‘one of those mums‘. I am a mother who loves the school holidays.  I count the days down to the holidays and I put off thinking about going back to school till I absolutely have too.  Not because I dislike homeschooling, I just want to enjoy every moment of the...

There is a lot of talk in my group of friends about how busy our lives are.   We all have kids, a couple of mums work full time,  some work part time, some are stay at home parents, some are single mums and a few of us are married, and none of us feel as though we have enough time in the day to do anything for ourselves.   We feel rushed and reactive rather than...

One of her assessment pieces required her to pull it apart, and put it back together in the form of...

What a massive couple of months its been. The ‘back to school’ sales seemed to start a day or two after New Years Day, and I’m pretty sure I haven’t stopped running since. The rush to get the kids organised for school took longer than I expected it too. Plan A was to get the kids organised as quickly as possible so we could get back to enjoying...

Happy New Year! I think 2016 is going to be a really good year.   As per usual I found myself thinking about making some ‘New year’s Resolutions’, but this year I’m going to do something a little differently.  I have realised that for whatever reason, I am unable to follow through and complete my ‘New Year’s Resolutions’,...
