Its Mother’s Day on Sunday! Many mums look at their lives and analyse how they’re doing in their role as a mother. Some days I feel great about motherhood.  Other days I thank God we all survived the day!  Most days I move through the day feeling cool and calm like ‘Mary Poppins’, other days when I feel overwhelmed and out of sorts I feel...

Another Month has come and gone!  We are travelling through 2017 far too quickly!   As much as I would love time to stand still for a moment – it can’t, and it never will.   We have to work out how to adapt and work with time!   Make time work for us instead – if you figure out how to do this, please let me know.  🙂 So here is April’s...

Over the Easter school holidays we took the kids down to Brisbane and visited the Gallery of Modern Art.   We really loved our little adventure and wished we got down to Brisbane sooner, as there was so much to see.  I think we only just touched the surface.  There really is something for everyone.   No one will walk away disappointed.  The effort to drive down...

What happened to March?   Life is going far too quickly, and while I do feel we are achieving some of our goals there are a number of things we haven’t yet started.  We have just finished our first school term for 2017, and I must say that I am thrilled to now be on school holidays.   We have worked hard and now we are rewarded with time off!

In fact, I welcome Autumn.  At this moment,  I am looking forward to some cooler weather.  My only issue with Autumn...

What an awesome month! We may have had many over the top hot days, but I must say that I have really enjoyed this month. January was all about getting organised for 2017, so I decided the start of February was the perfect time to action my massive list of goals for the new year. By doing so, I feel as though I tricked myself into avoiding ‘I have already...

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...
