A Cold Reception

A Cold Reception

I recently went on a weekend away with three other mums and our bubs. After going for a walk around the scenic like we found a cafe to stop and have a coffee. The first thing we saw as we walked to the door was a sign saying that customers were forbidden to have “just…

Make The Ordinary Come Alive

Make The Ordinary Come Alive

A friend recently shared this poem with me as it really struck a cord with her: Do not ask your children to strive for extraordinary lives. Such striving may seem admirable, but it is a way of foolishness. Help them instead to find the wonder and the marvel of an ordinary life. Show them the…

More Like Rose

I saw a play last night that really touched me. I love going to the theatre and my friend and I have committed to going to a play each year to celebrate our birthdays. This has been our annual ritual for many years now. It means we both get a present we really want and allows…

A Dance To Remember

A Dance To Remember

I recently saw a YouTube clip of a young boy dancing. While he wasn’t even five foot tall he danced way beyond his years. I’m no technical dancer but the way he moved his body and controlled his muscles was incredible. He kept in time with the music beautifully and told a story with his…
