IMG_1983

I picked a word for this year “perseverance“. I wrote about it here. I wanted to make 2015 not about trying to re-invent the wheel, but rather work hard at what I already know I can do. I’ve had a rough January. I did not feel my best emotionally and it wasn’t due to any […]

So it’s been a little hectic around here… I can finally breathe a sigh of relief. The pool finally went in… Husband’s grass has survived! It will be ok! And even with some water on it over the last couple of days it’s looking better. The pool was dirty, and then it was clean and […]

Oh rain, rain, rain…. I do love you, but you always have to come at the most inappropriate times. Seriously, you don’t visit when we want, but you have a way of making me tear my hair out when I don’t want it. No, it’s ok Katrina. I keep saying that. My Mum says c’mon […]

Hi there! How are things at your house? Mine has been a little up and down… Last weekend we headed off to the lovely town of Orange for a 4 day rep cricket carnival representing Wagga. We were so excited for my big boy! He was pumped and ready to perform. He’d been training every […]

Top Shopping Picks: Graffiti / Pop Art

popart

If you’re looking for something a little different in a room (or a kids room!) then I recommend you fall head over heels in love with pop art or anything graffiti!
