    19 for 2019

    We are 19 days into 2019. Funnily enough, I thought it would be a great day to tell you my 19 for 2019 plan. Some of them are the same as last years list. Truthfully, I didn’t have a brilliant 2018, and I didn’t succeed at many of my goals on the list. I touched on a few, but it really was a pathetic effort on my part. I let a situation that hurt me, taint last year, and while I can’t do anything about that situation, there was something healing about leaving the last year at the door of this brand new year. There were great moments, decisions and…

    Hello 2019

    There is something quite special about this time of year. Yes it is hot, but the days are long, Christmas and new year celebrations bring family and friends together, and the feeling of being on school holidays makes my heart smile from the inside out. I am in no rush to get back into the grind of term life. Holidays fit me very well – I think they look good on me!! I love the long end of year holidays where we can linger and enjoy the Sunshine Coast for what it is I know I will sound cheeky when I say this, but living on the Sunshine Coast is…

    Reporting, Homeschooling and Holidays

    This week is the week of the semester that I look forward to the least. Reporting week! Our teacher came on Tuesday to do reporting with us.   I like our teacher, but I really don’t like the reporting process.    I wanted to feel ready, and in control, but this time, I did not.   We have worked hard this semester, but it’s also been a very full on few months.  I feel that the best picture I can give you is of me, pushing two very large elephants up a very long and rocky steep ascented  hill.  A hill where I have tripped and dropped said elephants, and…

    Easter Holidays 2018

    On Thursday, tomorrow, the first school term of the year will be finished, and the holidays will start. YAY! If you know me, you will know that I love the school holidays. I’m a homeschooling mum so it does make sense that I love the school holidays, but, if you have known me for some time, you will know that I have always been one of those mums who loves school holidays! I like to find that nice balance between lots of activities, getting a few things done at home, and relaxing. It’s not always easy to find that balance, but its always good to write a few ideas down…

    International Women’s Day 2018

    What a time in history we live. We really do have so much to be thankful for. The first week of March is International Womens Day!  I know I am a little late in posting this, but I really didn’t want to leave it! Hope you enjoyed celebrating women! There are many women over the course of history who have done some amazing things to make our lives easy and better.    I am not a feminist or a fanatical women’s libber, but I do love to hear stories about women who are doing well and contributing to society, whether it be in business, science, medicine, law, ministry, motherhood etc.…

    Soul Searching January

    What an amazing first month of the year! 2018 has gotten off to a great start! The end of the holidays are closing in on us sadly.  These holidays have been a wonderful time for our family.   We have spent quality time together and this in itself has been what I call, priceless!!  Time together is what we needed. Family time + Quality time = Closeness, and the opportunity to do some soul searching! Soul searching gives us an opportunity to assess our lives, make some new decisions, come to terms and make peace with what or who we have lost (specifically people who have left our lives), and…

    The 2017 Wrap Up

    What an amazing, huge, emotionally charged, crazy year!   How does one really evaluate a year that has been so big in so many ways!!!  If I was to link a song to this year, I think I would probably choose Myley Cyrus’s ‘Wrecking Ball’ song!  2017 came in like a wrecking ball! At the start of 2017, I had a lot of ideas for how I wanted the year to play out – things I wanted to do personally, and a number of things I wanted to achieve for our family.  I knew it was going to be a little challenging to do it all, but I think I…

    The Game of Life

    One of our family’s favourite board games is ‘The Game of Life’.  I personally prefer the original version of the game, but after many years of play, we needed to update and buy the new version.  Unfortunately, the new version’s board is a lot smaller, and they have changed the format of the game.   I suppose that happens when we try to modernise something that doesn’t need modernising.   The only reason we decided to upgrade to the newer version was that our game was literally falling apart.   Pieces were missing and the board was broken.  Our trusty original ‘Game of Life’ had been thoroughly enjoyed and used…
