Fun Photos


Photo by: @MsMeowD So, in all my years of blogging {SEVEN YEARS} I don’t believe I’ve ever had so much fun with my little community. This project took fun to a whole new level.

The idea


I cry every time I watch Toy Story 3, which seems to be a lot lately as the kids are obsessed with it. It’s the bit where Andy grows up and doesn’t need his toys anymore, so he gives them away. Oh man, I’m getting teary even now. I have to be all like, “Oh no, mama’s not crying. I just have something in my… eye.” I’m just not good…

Who were you in high school?


Social Media definitely makes the world smaller, doesn’t it? I have a friend Jodie. I’ll call her that because that’s her name. We met in preschool, and probably bonded over the fruit bowl. When I was in preschool the fruit bowl was shared and passed around the circle, each kid taking a piece and passing the bowl on. It would be a hygiene-nightmare in today’s world. From memory the bananas…

The Fat Mum Slim project


Recently when I was away traveling I was sitting at a group experience breakfast. There were three lizards on the table next to me, a lady with a snake to my right, a koala behind me and large birds perched on branches in front of me.

This matters to me


Yesterday as I drove along a big rainbow filled the sky. You know when you see one you often only see part of one, the end or middle is obscured by something… clouds, buildings, anything. This was big, and clear and it spanned across the whole sky. I was driving along to breakfast with my Ma and Sis and the rainbow just kept getting bigger and brighter as we drove….

How to help your baby sleep better


Brought to you by Johnson’s. I only have two children, but I wonder if parents with more than one child learn more about how to parent with each child that they have. Like that Duggar lady with all those children, did she get to the 15th one and just totally know what she was doing? Surely, you obtain much more wisdom with the more children you have? Is that how…
