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 […]

Home is a feeling…


I found this little saying on Instagram the other night and I shared it over there. Lots of you loved it too. Mostly, I’d rather be at home than anywhere else in the world. I am a Cancerian, so I am very much a homebody. My husband and I both still get homesick all the time. Anyone […]

My big boy had “the talk” at school


I don’t know about your house, but in ours we’re a bunch of prudes. Yep, we don’t talk about “rude parts” too often and there is no swearing or silly talk. I know! That’s why I say we’re a bunch of prudes! I think I’ve wanted my house to run this way for all these […]

Boys bedroom mini makeover


My biggest boy (he’s 12 and a half) got a makeover in his bedroom this week. Here’s a video with me pulling it together (hospital corners please)! And here’s the final result (for now!). I am always changing and fiddling with things… We’re doing very simple walls in this room. He doesn’t want too much […]

Out and about with my boys in the bush


At the top of our street is a hill and some bush with great walking tracks through them. Every few days (when it’s not hot because I HATE snakes!), we take a quick wander through. This week we’ve been a couple of times and I took my camera along… Bear is busting to get going! […]

A new addition to our family


This little fluff ball entered our house this week! Oh boy, he is adorable. We’ve named him Bear. He’s a Spoodle (cocker spaniel/poodle). He’s 8 weeks old and only about 10cm high – the photos make him look bigger, but really he’s just so tiny. Today we took a few photos and my boys have […]

My little people in action


This is how I spend every single weekend. Saturday and Sunday. They play Rugby League (preferred sport by me!) and AFL. Plus the eldest has rep thrown in there. I never ever miss a game (unless I am away!). I love it more than them I think. Footy is very social too. Some of my […]

Nobody mentioned it…


This parenting gig isn’t easy is it? Nobody warned me that you’d be riding their highs and lows like they are your own. Nobody mentioned that you start a new personal journey when they start to grow up. I am living in the moment and I’m living in their emotions. When they do something good, […]
