One family car is doable for many years when the kids are young. But fast forward to when the kids attend different schools, have after school activities and mum and dad are at work, a second runabout family car...
On the weekend we had Jacob’s 40th Birthday and we loosely themed the party around Star Wars. The uncertainty of if a party could even happen meant much of the planning was last minute. We decided to hold the party at...
When the QLD/NSW border bubble extended to Ballina, Jacob and I booked accommodation for a mini Escape to Northern NSW to visit family before Christmas. Who knew a severe rain event was going to dampen our weekend! We thought we...

Time can often feel like it stands still when you have a baby, a toddler and a kid not yet old enough for Kindergarten. School would be a daydream on days when all hell would break a loose at home. A...
Has it been a big December for you? It has for me. So much so, I’ve had to make some tough decisions about the workload I take on next year. I do love the mix of what I do...
