    22 for 2022

    And just like that plans change…or do they? There is something very special about the start of a brand new year. The fireworks smell lingers in the air for a few days, and as we all get used to writing the new year – 2022 instead of 2021, I like to start thinking about what I would like the coming year too look like. I love this time of year, I love the newness of a new year. The idea that a fresh page is set before us is appealing. Anything is possible, What will this new year will bring us? The question I like to ask is ‘What would…

    Happy New Year!

    Merry Christmas and welcome to a brand new year! We are now six days in, and I must say that I have a very good feeling about this coming year. We decided to start planning events and adventures we can look forward to over the course of the coming year! I’ll admit that I was in a hurry to finish 2021, and it was so lovely to finish the year with good friends down at Mooloolaba and of course the fireworks! There is something very special about fireworks and friendship! I believe whole heartedly that 2022 is going to be a great year. Last year was a good year in…

    October 2021

    Well Hello! 2021 has not been the best blogging year for me. I can’t believe its literally taken me till now, the end of October, to actually get a blog post out. I feel as though so many things have happened this year, but when I try to write about it all – 2021 doesn’t look like it has felt. Maybe it is just a little bit of writers block, but also maybe what I would like to say about 2021 should not be said, maybe 2020/2021 will be two years in our history that we will look back on with angst and some sadness. First of all, let’s start…

    What do you want?

    Has anyone ever asked you ‘what do you want in life?’ If so, did you stop and really think and consider the question? Did you answer the question? What do you want? I have been listening to a lot of Bob Goff videos lately. I love how Bob Goff talks, and how upbeat he is. He has a lot of really good advice on living life well, encourages us all to go on adventurous, and to find creative ways to be kind to the people in our lives, and those who live in our neighbourhood. He oozes happiness! Bob Goff lives a big life. He is a lawyer, a philanthropist,…

    Walking Through Open Doors

    There will always be new doors and new adventures for us all. Life moves us forward whether we are ready or not, and since we never really know what each open door holds, we still have to jump through whether we are ready or not. We are meant to keep looking in the forward direction. Change isn’t always comfortable, but we do get used to the change eventually. Speaking of change. A couple of months ago we decided to have a look at some local schools for our youngest, for next year. I have been feeling our time as a homeschooling family is coming to an end after 7 years,…

    It’s February – Happy New Year!

    I know, I know, we are heading toward the end of February, and here I am saying ‘Happy New Year’ to you all! The truth is, I lived in a lovely and blissful state of denial right through January. I was determined to enjoy the school holidays right to the very end with everything I had in me. My pet hate is that as soon as Christmas finishes the back to school sales start. I am not one of those mums who is in a hurry to get back to the school schedule or routine. So, I avoided the back to school sales by not heading to the shops and…

    Taking Stock – December 2020

    I was so excited for December to come this year. It has been quite the year in so many ways. Sadly, December came and disappeared very quickly. However, our December was a great month for so many reason. Our family went away to the Gold Coast for one of our best holidays ever. We thoroughly enjoyed our time away together. We celebrated the kids finishing school for the year, and we celebrated our eldest finishing her advanced diploma. We found out that she was one of three who actually graduated with her qualification. Her other classmates must need to resubmit certain assessment pieces before they can move forward to receiving…

    21 for 2021

    It’s that time of year when we start thinking about our goals for the coming year. I don’t know about you, but I have been thinking about 2021 for some time. I could tell you 10 great reasons for why you shouldn’t bother setting goals for 2021, considering 2020 was the year of covid-19 and Quarantining. Should we even bother setting goals? The answer to this question is ALWAYS YES! We should bother setting goals! We still have desires, and things we want to achieve in our lives. We are creative beings, goals give us direction, and we are responsible for the lives we lead despite the craziness going on…
