Usually the start of Autumn brings that ‘sad, blah, it’s the end of Summer yuck feeling’ in the pit off my tummy, however, after an insanely intense hot summer, I don’t actually feel that sad about the new change of  season. In fact, I welcome Autumn.  At this moment,  I am looking forward to some cooler weather.  My only issue with Autumn...

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...

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...

Do you remember the Oprah show?   I have to admit I miss the Oprah show, particularly the give away shows. The Extravagant “Oprah’s Favourite things’ shows.  I loved seeing Oprah give away luxurious gifts to her shocked and very excited crowds.  Remember the holiday to Australia for all those American teachers, and the time she presented everyone...

Term 4 started on Tuesday, and Amy who is in year 6 bought home an assignment criteria sheet for her next piece of assessment.    I had hoped that we could slide through the first week of school without homework or assignments –...

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...

This week, I am blogging for the Karmen Lizzul Blog Tour. When my friend Krishna Everson (Sunshine Coast’s Marketing Extra-ordinaar), contacted me and asked me to join her blog tour, I felt very special, and rather honoured.  Krishna has a heart for women in business. Earlier in the year, I signed up for a couple of Krishna’s workshops online (Passionate Marketing, and Get-it Write Empire Builders Mastermind).  I learned quite quickly that Krishna has the gift of teaching on her life, and the innate ability to know what...
