Yesterday as we learned of Robin Williams death, I haven’t been able to stop thinking about him or his family. I may not have known Robin Williams or his family personally, but I have met the numerous characters he has played across many television shows and movies.   I grew up watching Mork and Mindy, Mrs Doubtfire, and so many other movies Robin Williams was apart of.  He was a treasured member of the Disney family.  Its hard for me to fathom a man with so much public charisma, feeling so depressed and anxious that his...

Technology has changed our world on so many levels. I can’t imagine our world now without laptops, iPads/tablets, iPods and smartPhones. I can’t imagine life without wifi….God forbid we still lived in a world with dial up internet,  or NO internet at all?!! I can’t imagine life without the many apps I use on a daily basis.  I don’t know about you, but these days I have a very happy codependent relationship with google – a relationship I have no desire to break off. Hubby is very tech savvy, and I love...

Are you a fan of the show Offspring? I wasn’t really a fan as such, until recently when I had the flu and was in desperate need of a television fix.   There was nothing on at all so I turned to catch-up television online.   All I wanted was something to watch to dull the flu symptoms, and so it was at this time that I stumbled across a couple of episodes of Offspring.  While I don’t race to watch it when its on, I have since decided that I really like the main character Nina’s quirky personality.  I also like her...

I wish it was possible to travel back in time. I’d go back to 3.00pm on the 27th June.   The last day of school term for semester 1. I’d really like to start the holidays again! While we had fun times over the holidays, the second week was neither relaxing or fun. Especially for poor hubby, who had to have his wisdom teeth out – all four of them needed to be surgically removed, and the recovery time was especially tough.  Hubby was a good patient.  I am however not a good nurse.   I have the utmost respect for nurses...

For years, I have seen the Wicked camper vans on the Sunshine Coast, and I must admit that I have been quite appalled by many a disgusting and crude slogan.  They are often racist and incredibly offensive.  I have often thought about the idea that ‘somebody’ should do something about them, but life would get busy and then all of a sudden I would see another van and again be reminded of how disgraceful these vans were , but also think to myself how ‘somebody’ should stop this company in their tracks. Last week,...

I am a mum of three daughters, and I want each one of them to grow up into strong authentic women who are not scared of achieving their dreams, or even striving for them.  I want them all to live their lives whole heartedly.   I want them to know who they are, what they stand for, what their beliefs are, and what their values are. I want them to know that no matter what happens in life – they are enough. There is nothing they can do or say, that will stop them from being ‘enough’. They are worthy of love and affection. They...
