    Term 3 and Homeschooling Gameplans

    Term three has officially started! We are about to start week two of the term, and I’m so not ready for Monday morning! Tafe also started back last week, so I again live in the car. Bep’s hours at work have officially gone up, which is a good thing, but it also means that we (hubby and I) have another ungodly hour to get up to each week with regard to dropping her off at work. The holidays went far too quickly for my liking. I had numerous things I wanted to accomplish, and if I am going to be honest I only tackled a few of those things on…

    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…

    Heavenly Friendships

    Friendships are a beautiful tapestry of memories, life experiences shared, conversations had, tears shed, and laughter cherished. Long beautiful friendships where each person in your friendship group journey through all the different facets of life together. There is nothing like the safety and security of genuine friendships with people who are just as committed to growing old with me, as I am with them. I love long term forever friendships, also known as kindred spirited friendships. I am deeply committed and loyal to my friends, and they are the same for me. I’m so lucky and grateful to have a group of friends like this. We come from all walks…

    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…

    ISO-Organising

    For the first time in a long time I can honestly tell you that I feel as though my world at home is coming together. You probably think this post sounds boring, strange or even a funny thing to write about, but before iso-times began, I felt as though I never had time to do those extra tasks that need to be done around the home, you know conquering cupboards, cleaning out out-of-control drawers, and tackling the garage. While some painted, DIYed, crafted, baked, learned to play instruments, put puzzles together, read, and watched movies, I made the decision to get my home in order. My goal was to become…

    Happy Mother’s Day!

    A Mum’s life is never boring. A Mum’s life is a life of love, and lots of laundry. I love being a mum, and there are so many facets of motherhood that I thoroughly enjoy. I’m not so keen on the ‘CEO of household duties‘ part of my life, but most Mums don’t have maids or housekeepers to come in and breeze through our homes with spray and wipe, and clean up after us all. It would be nice to have more time to just ‘be and play’ with our kids more often, plan and take adventures, and not have to make time to get the jobs done. The reality…

    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…

    Isolating At Home Holiday Ideas

    Hello! Hope you’re doing well!? I was starting to feel the effects of the negative media chatter this week so I decided to drastically cut back on our ‘News’ intake. Almost instantly I started to feel calmer in myself. Limiting the noise is good for the soul. We now check on the news in the evening, and then get on with whatever we want to do after that. I miss the freedoms we had prior to what I like to call, ‘The global corona shutdown!’. I just want people to do the right thing, and do what we have been asked to do so this whole Corona Virus thing can…
