Dear mum in detention

Dear mum in Detention Happy Mother’s Day. Today as my children wake me up with their buttery fingers and vegemite smeared faces, I will think of when you woke your children up to get on a boat you weren’t sure any of you would survive, because you knew that it was your only hope for…

Dunny money!

If I had a dollar for every nappy I’ve changed I would be a millionaire! Well maybe not…but I would be rich, I’m sure of it! We are taking up a challenge and I would love for you to join us. This is a great way to help teach your littlies that some of the…

Confessions of a good mum #1

Like all good mums, I still mess up daily! Sometimes badly, sometimes in ways I would rather forget and sometimes just by doing something stupid? I have confidence, and I hope it isn’t seen as arrogance, that despite my misgivings, I am all in all a good mum. My measure of this will be different…

Stuff!

Ever have days where you feel like you are sinking in all the ‘stuff’? Sometimes it is the ‘stuff’ that everyone wants from you. Sometimes it is the ‘stuff’ that you have to do. Sometimes it is the ‘stuff’ of life that can weigh you down and sometimes it is just STUFF! We are blessed…

An inspiring life?

I’ve been thinking…I tend to write something and publish it, then mull it over in my head for a little while. Maybe I should do the ‘mulling’ before I hit publish, but I am far to impatient for such things! I read this blog, Momastry, and I am always inspired by what ‘G’ has to…

Becoming the best mum I can be

I remember rearranging my parents lounge room with the girl next door to create a ‘house’ for us and our ‘babies’ when I was about 8 years old. That was what I wanted to be…a mum. When Rick and I were engaged, we had the ‘talk’ about when we would start having kids. Rick said…

Are you richer or poorer today?

Have you checked out if you will be richer or poorer after today’s budget announcement in Australia? From the little bit I have seen, looks like we will have a tiny bit more in our pockets! Unfortunetely, the same can not be said for Foreign Aid and Development. The government had promised to increase the…
