tooth fairy visit

Little miss lost her first tooth yesterday ... and woke this morning to coins left by the tooth fairy.  She could hardly sleep last night because she was excitied ... I love the innocence of childhood.


We headed to the north of this beautiful state on New Year's Day to Ulverstone for a little camping in the beloved kombi ... my parents, sister and family all came along and had a fabulous time!

i'm back

Hello summer !!!

It's been quite a hectic few months since I last posted ... a lot has happened.

Danni is now on the mend ... my gorgeous 15 year old was suffering depression and anorexia.  The past few months have been hell ... extremely difficult for all of us.  But we now have help and life is beginning to become easier for us.  She still has 'blue' days but we ride them together as a family.  I am so proud of Danni and how she has dealt with it all.

Sam has come to the end of her primary school years ... has participated in a very entertaining concert, looked absolutely stunning for her leavers dinner and disco during the past week. She received a special Principal's award at the school graduation on Thursday ... I am so happy and proud that she is doing well.  Sam just rides the bumps and is a beautiful girl inside and out.

Little Miki is loving school and her friends.  Miki makes everyone happy ... even strangers !!!  Everyone seems to love my little miss.  Miki is one of those little girls that loves to wear dresses, pink sparkle sandshoes, who dances and twirls up the aisles of supermarkets!  Absolutely gorgeous!

I've been busy with work, and I've begun seeing a new man.  He lives in the north of the state (about 2 hours away) and whilst I do like him, I am very wary and cautious.  I not only have myself to worry about but three beautiful girls too.  So we are taking it very easy and slowly ... which is fine by me!

Needless to say, my home has been neglected somewhat ... BUT the Christmas tree is now up, some presents wrapped and summer is here!!!

I love this time of year ...

spring ...

We are nearly into the second week of the school holidays ... the weather is warmer .... daffodils are everywhere ... it's spring !!! 

Tomorrow we are heading up the east coast of this beautiful island with the kombi for a week.  Camping.  Me and my three beautiful girls ... oh, and my parents are taking their campervan too! 

I am so looking forward to not rushing ... but resting, talking, going for long walks, reading and just breathing ...

happy birthday sam

Sam ... you have grown into a beautiful young lady.  I am extremely proud of you.  You are a kind, caring, loving, optomisitic, considerate, gentle, compassionate, thoughtful, tolerant, gorgeous girl.  Happy 12th Birthday ... love you muchly x

my hero ...

Today we celebrate Fathers Day ... my father is my hero.  My mentor.  My champion.  My idol.  He is a kind, decent man ... generous, thoughtful, selfless, considerate, charitable and respectful.  I am extremely lucky to have such a wonderful, caring father.

I love you DAD xx

I am reading an amazingly inspirational book at the moment ... "SOLEMATE - Master the Art of Aloneness & Transform Your Life" by Lauren Mackler.   

You can follow the link

This is a must read for anyone committed to improving her life and relationships.  Most of us spend years waiting for an ideal partner to make our lives complete; some settling in bad relationships for fear of being alone.  This book helps you become aware of yourself and love yourself, without needing anyone else to do it for you. 

It gives you the tools you need to live a full, happy, successful, emotionally and financially secure life - with or without a partner. 

Truly inspiring.
