Around here lately


Hi there! Thanks for popping in! Here’s what’s been happening in my world lately… My handsome and clever boy got the Maths award. I had a day trip to Melbourne to hang out at the Ford Factory for the day. Lots of cool things happening in 2015! We’ve been immersed in cricket as usual. He […]

I see words in colours


I’ve always seen words as colours. I thought every one did and I started to google it’s meaning but there is only a Wikipedia definition (Graphemeā€“color synesthesia) and not much else. I am sure this is not so rare. I wouldn’t say I have a ‘condition’ haha! But I do think it’s weird it seems […]

Around here lately


The last 7 days have been a bit wild around here. The passing of Phil Hughes got me more than I imagined. My boys took it hard too. I had a child away in Canberra while that was happening all over the news and because we couldn’t talk about it I felt uneasy all week. […]



I didn’t know Phil Hughes, but I knew how good he was. I have been so sad and teary and heart-broken to learn of Phil’s passing yesterday. Wasn’t he just gorgeous and so clever? I love cricket. My boys are mad for it and my husband coaches it. So this news has been massive in […]

We love cricket


Summer is well and truly here at our place. I know this because we’ve all gone cricket mad. Actually I think we’re loving cricket this year more than we love footy (did I just say that!?). My husband is coaching the under 13s team this year and he’s loving it! I think he’s reliving his […]

Around here lately…


I’ve been a little unsettled lately. I haven’t had enough to do, I think. I have been wandering too much. So, I have been purging the cupboards a little bit (as I always do!). And taking photos of every corner of my home… haha hence the overwhelming amount of photos on Instagram lately! But I […]

Around here lately


It was a pretty quiet week in the Chambers’ household last week. And it was nice! My boys have gone cricket mad. My husband is coaching the under 13’s team for Cruise. Tex sometimes has to play up in this team on a Friday night as we’re short for numbers and the little darling hit […]

New ideas, a new notebook

I went to bed last night tired and drifted off easily. Then a child woke me about 20 minutes later to tell me he couldn’t sleep. Thanks for that. So of course then I couldn’t get back to sleep and my mind kept wandering… I started to think stupid things… as you do. In the […]

My house 18 months ago and now…


It’s no secret that I did love building my house. It’s always a work in progress and I’ll probably never think it’s finished. I love tweaking and adding to it. It’s not a massive home but I just love it… The front garden is something I’ve enjoyed watching. Over the last 18 months we’ve gradually […]

Taking Stock


Hi there! I mentioned the other day how easy it is to write a list on a day where you’re not sure what to blog about and today I thought I’d use one of Pip‘s lists and see what I can come up with… It was harder than I thought. I couldn’t answer everything straight […]
