    Taking Stock – March 2020

    Hello March! This month has been crazy. Right across the world, the goal of March Has been ‘Eliminate Covid-19’. Right across the world restrictions are in full force, and the news coverage every day is doom and gloom. I am looking forward to seeing the back of this rotten virus, and getting back to normal. Australia is yet to go through winter so it will be interesting to see how we fair through the next couple of months. From a personal family point of view, despite the crazy world of ‘toilet paper and hand sanitizer gate’, March has been a good month. Tafe life and school life is in full…

    The Art of Sudden Homeschooling

    Hello! I was lying in bed this morning thinking about the early days of our homeschooling adventure. It was quite the learning the curve, let me tell you. Over the course of the first year, I second guessed myself numerous times. I wondered whether I had made the right decision for our kids. Many days I felt like a complete failure. It took some time for me to find my strides, and 5 years and a few months later, we still have great days, and we have days we would like to forget. The life of a homeschooling mum is very rewarding, but definitely not a walk in the park.…

Countries are closing their borders, and there is a sense of urgency and uncertainty happening around us. I for one have never experienced anything like the strange feelings surrounding this rapid sense of global chaos. The need to be at home suits me fine. I am a self-proclaimed home body at the best of times, but it is the forced sense of family isolation that causes me a tad amount of anxiety. I know it will all work out in the end, and I’m thankful that our Government hasn’t completely closed down our country.…

    Money Life Hacks for Mums

    About five years ago I stumbled upon Author Gretchen Rubin’s ‘Happier’ podcast. Each week Gretchen and her sister Elizabeth discuss ways in which we can make our lives a little bit happier. I look forward to the next instalment each week. FYI The Happier podcast drops on Wednesday afternoons.

    Taking Stock – February 2020

    How can February 2020 be gone already? I feel as though I blinked and have found myself at the end of February. Two months of this brand new year have slipped away and disappeared so quickly from our 2020. So here we are again reflecting back on the past month, and getting ready to focus on the March. February 2020 has been an incredibly busy month on so many levels. I look at my goals for the year pinned on my board and often tell them, “I’m sorry I didn’t progress you, tomorrow is a brand new day with new possibilities”. I realise that if I am going to accomplish…
