I know that I am not the only woman who feels guilty if the house is messy.   I don’t feel I can sit and write, or plan my next blog post or adventure, if my home is not how I like it.  I realise that some mums can work and play around a messy home but I am just not one of these mums. This week, I watched ‘The Biggest Loser’.   I had said that I wasn’t...

The other night I attended an information night at our school for the year five class who have started a program to help build resilience in our children....

Recently the Sunrise Weekend show on channel 7 shared James K Flannigan’s letter to his grandchildren.   Mr Flannigan’s letter really enriched...
