Stuff’s been happening

We’ve had visits and parites and all sorts of fun things happening around here in the last few weeks, and it’s nice just to have a record of it to look back on the smaller stuff as well as all of the big events. Like a lovely visit from Julius’ Fairy Godmother Hayley from Rockhampton….

Julius is 5!

Oh my heart. This kid is just the greatest. He is kind, has the loveliest manners, makes me laugh every day, loves music and singing and has all the dance moves and then some, he adores his brothers and sister and loves being around people. He gives us kisses and cuddles at every opportunity and…

This is reality

A little while back, after a night away from my kids, my free time was coming to an end and I’m not going to lie, I was not exactly looking forward to coming home. I commented to my friend, and most likely audibly sighed, as I’m apt to do, “I guess it’s back to reality”….

Stuff’s been happening

I’m sitting at a table that is not my own, surrounded by people who can look after themselves, looking at treetops and the ocean, listening to the wind and the rain, and loving the buzz of activity around me. I am lucky enough to be in an AirBNB on the Sunshine Coast for two nights…

41 in ’21

I’ve just spent half an hour with online tech support to get my blog all updated and working again! So let’s talk all things birthday week! After working on assessments for nearly two full days, (and submitting everything!) I was really ready to have a drink or two with my wonderful crew of school mums…

A job well done

Back in September, I got louvres put into my dining area, and new windows in my living area. Once the job was done, I thought it was a little strange that the architraves were left unpainted. But I honestly, genuinely didn’t mind that much at all. I LOVED my new windows, and the functionality was…
