10 Travel Tips for a Healthy & Safe Family Holiday

Brought to you by Bupa Travel Insurance. Do you find traveling with kids easy or painful?! Most people find it overwhelming and too hard! I have 3 wild boys and nothing is smooth sailing with my lot, but we still do manage to go places together. We don’t fly very often, but we do head out on car trips as much as we can. It might be day trips, weekend trips to the footy or a week at the beach….

Rugby League, our kids are the future

If you follow Rugby League you would have heard about the disgraceful behaviour by some fans after a wrong decision was given by the referees during the Bulldogs vs Rabbitohs game on Friday. I was watching… In short, Souths were awarded a late penalty after the video ref’s reviewed some footage of a late tackle by a Bulldogs player. The penalty gave the Rabbitohs an 18-17 victory and the Bulldogs fans’ were livid. They were so angry to the point…

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 youth. He’s gone all ‘stats’ mad… ha! My big boy, Cruise, is playing well. He’s on the top of the batting average board for the…

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 who knows us will laugh at that because it’s true! I love it when he walks through the door at night. I feel better when…

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 years because I clearly have 3 boys who will suddenly turn all of that on it’s head, so for now, I’d like to keep a…

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 fuss and I refuse to paint feature walls. On the reverse wall (which you can’t see) he has shelves with his TV, medals, trophies and…

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! We took the remote control car along (Chevy was 8 yesterday and they’ve been dying to get his birthday present out and about!). If you…

The sunshine brings all the good stuff

Hi there! Just popping in for a quick hello… The sun has been shining around here, and it makes life seem so much more brighter. The dreariness of Winter is so boring. Sometimes I can smell a tiny hint of Spring in the air. This week has been magnificent, but still pretty cold in the mornings with -3! Monday I went to Sydney to film a video about ‘upskilling’ for SEEK Learning. I’ll share that with you next week. It…

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 even set up his own Instagram account (@bear_chambers). They’d love it if you followed him! After 4 hours of playing he fell asleep in the…

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 favourite Mum’s are the games and it’s the only chance we get to see each other. Here’s my big boy Cruise… He’d just got a…
