    Taking Stock – July 2020

    Here we are in July! It’s quite surreal. Time is passing us by so quickly and there is always so many things we need to reach on. I’m becoming more and more aware of how precious time is and I don’t want to waste a single moment of it. It’s not easy to make memories with family and friends around the craziness of shuttling kids to all their different activities and also commitments, but here we are. In the midst of craziness, life keeps moving forward, and its up to us to live our best life through the strange and peculiar moments we find ourselves in. So, here we go.…

    Taking Stock – June 2020

    Hello!   Oops! 🙂June escaped me. Here I am though, few days into July – Better late than never!!! What a crazy month June came and went!  Not sure why this month has felt much longer than any other month, but it could simply be because school holidays were coming, and I was eager to get there as quickly as possible. After all these years, I am still one of those mums who loves holidays with the kids. And yes, I know that sounds crazy since I am a homeschooling mum! All I can say is Thank God the holidays are here!! Homeschooling Reporting went very well. We are so blessed…

    Taking Stock – May 2020

    Hello! Today is the last day of May 2020. May is one of my favourite months of the year. The temperature is starting to change from boiling hot to a nice and cool climate. I’m not a fan of the cold weather, but I do love a warm sunny winter day where I am comfortable in jeans and a shirt. This month we remembered my Dad. It’s hard to believe ten years has flown by so quickly. The first of May 2010 is a day we will never forget. Mothers Day was fun even though a few of us have had head colds (Definitely not covid-19). We also celebrated our…

    Taking Stock – April 2020

    Hello! Here we are at the end of the fourth month of the year. April! Time moves far too quickly for my liking. Strangely, for me, this last month has been a whirl wind. We are still isolated at home, but we are doing fine. My favourite word at the moment is Resilience, and I am trusting God to help us all get through the pandemic safely and securely, oh and fast. Making: Too be honest, April wasn’t a making ‘month’ for me. Outside of the ‘making’ of meals, obviously! My kids have been creative though! Our eldest has been working on her tafe assessments, Beps is doing a cross…

    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…

    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…

    Taking Stock in January 2020

    Hello January!! Actually, I should be saying, ’Goodbye January, Hello February!’ I can’t believe we are already at the end of January! It’s been a massive month here in our household. January is always a big month though, it’s about getting organised for the year ahead of us, school holidays, making sure we have everything ready for school life organised, and we celebrated our little man turning nine! A few years ago I did a blogging course with Pip Lincolne who shared the Taking Stock blog post concept. It’s a fun way to reflect and review your month. When I did this a few years ago, I really enjoyed the…

    Taking Stock – December 2017

    Oh my goodness, we are at the end of December, about to embark on a brand new year.  The New year (2018) will start in about 26 hours!  I am personally looking forward to the clock ticking over into 2018. Before it does though, we need to do the very last ‘Taking Stock’ edition for the year!  I don’t think I will be doing ‘Taking Stock’ in 2018.    I have an idea for something else. Cooking: Due to feeling over committed, I stuck to my old family favourites this month.   I must say though that Christmas food was relatively a big deal in our household this month, so…
