    Little Women (2019)

    One of my favourite things about having children who have jobs is that every so often they want to take me out for a treat. Yesterday, Beps decided to treat me to the movies. We went to see the new ‘Little Women‘ movie. Now, I am going to be honest here and say that I was a little nervous going in. I was hoping with everything within me, that the director did not change or manipulate the story of ‘Little Women‘ to modernise it or add characters that need not be added. I hoped that no agenda would be applied to the recent making of the movie of ‘Little Women‘.…

    Happiness, Habits and Hobbies

    Recently, I listened to one of my many favourite podcasts ‘Straight and Curly’ with kelly Exeter and Carly Jacobs, who were talking about how important it is to have hobbies.   At the time I was quick to react with some quick ‘I don’t have time for any hobbies!’ type of remark. And then I had a moment of feeling blue, until it suddenly occurred to me that I do in fact have hobbies! I enjoy writing on my blog and taking photos.  I also love to read, listen to podcasts and watch movies.   I like to go walking on the beach, making sandcastles with the kids, garage sales and…

    How to make yourself a Priority!

    Well, I must say that I have been thinking about this blog post for a while.   In fact, I have tried to write it numerous times, and every time I try I get the giggles because I am very much a work in progress.   I believe in the sentiment of making time for myself whole heartedly, but I often find it difficult to put the concept of ‘ME TIME’ into action. I laugh because the last time I was about to take time out for myself and read my book,  my gorgeous boy accidentally peed on the floor. He was engrossed in what he was playing, he left going to the toilet to the…

    September – The Love Month

    September is my favourite month of the year! Welcome to September – the month of sunshine and happiness! Our moderate-mostly-warm-Winter has gone, and Spring has come around again.  The days are becoming longer, the birds are chirping, and the flowers are starting to burst and bloom with colour.  There is a sense of excitement in the air, and I know its all because Spring has arrived.  I think the best way to describe this feeling I have is that I feel my soul is rejoicing – Spring has arrived! Its a great time of year for so many reasons. 1. Warmer Weather. Spring means the weather is warming up and jumpers can be put…

    Mischievious Mum’s Favourite Things 2015

    Do you remember the Oprah show?   I have to admit I miss the Oprah show, particularly the give away shows. The Extravagant “Oprah’s Favourite things’ shows.  I loved seeing Oprah give away luxurious gifts to her shocked and very excited crowds.  Remember the holiday to Australia for all those American teachers, and the time she presented everyone with a new car? Each year, Oprah puts together a list of things that she calls ‘Oprah’s Favourite Things’, and of course this year is no different.  I’m not sure how she goes about giving it all away these days, but I know she can still put together a fabulous ‘favourites list’. Now,  I must remind…

    Under the Tuscan Sun

    ‘Under the Tuscan Sun’ is one of my all time favourite movies.   I love the imagery of Italy. The houses built into the hillside, the cobble stone roads, the beautiful old architecture, the vineyards, and the beautiful landscape of Italy.  The story line is good too.  ‘Under the Tuscan Sun”, is about a woman called  Frances Mayes, who happens to be a writer – a writer with writers block, who suddenly finds herself unexpectedly divorced.  Her friends cash in their Tuscany tour holiday so that their friend could have some fun, cheer up and find some direction.   At first Frances refuses, but then she realises she needs to escape the pain…

    Waterproof Splashsuits for Kids

    This morning dark clouds covered our skyline.  It looked like quite the miserable rainy day.   Normally the idea of a wet day makes me feel a little glum and out of sorts.  I dislike going out in the rain because our funny four year old little boy Jaden, loves to play outside, and its impossible for him to stay dry.  Rain means puddles, puddles mean splashing, and splashing means soaking wet child – Jaden.  Jaden loves the wet weather, and loves playing outside, and in the puddles at every opportunity. Keeping Jaden dry on a wet day is next to impossible – raincoats and umbrellas often fail us!   I…

    The Last Term of the year

    This year is flying by so fast! I can’t believe the September school holidays are over.  They seemed to fly by far too quickly. Term 4 started on Tuesday, and Amy who is in year 6 bought home an assignment criteria sheet for her next piece of assessment.    I had hoped that we could slide through the first week of school without homework or assignments – but no such luck. Denial is not an easy place to live for a mum.  I could pretend we were still on holidays, but I am choosing to embrace what comes at us with poise and grace, after all, the Christmas holidays aren’t too far…
