    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…

    Disorganised Christmas Mum

    It turns out that the word insanity can be defined as doing the same thing over and over trying to get a different result. Every year I vow that next year is going to be more organised with regard to Christmas shopping. I always think I have plenty of time, and every year I feel a little stressed leading up to Christmas day. I know I am not the only one because there are other crazed looking people at the shops also looking for the perfect gift for their indecisive teenagers. I am the mother of three daughters and a little boy, two are indecisive. I believe perfect is the…

    The Christmas Jars Movie

    It’s December! December is one of the busiest months of the year – Family and friends catch ups, Christmas events, holidays, celebrations, preparing for Christmas and Christmas movies. We love Christmas movies. Last year we enjoyed ‘The Christmas Chronicles’ on Netflix, and while I hear there is a second instalment to ‘The Christmas Chronicles’ now out on Netflix, we are no longer subscribers to the service. This year, we opted to see a movie called ‘The Christmas Jars’. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and it is a movie that I look forward to seeing again next year, and I did need a few tissues, but it was lovely and heartwarming in…
