A mother’s pride…

The power that you hold to unquestionably mess up another human being…I guess it doesn’t really occur until you have a child or responsibility for another person. I had naively thought that I would understand this burden of responsibility when I became a mum and yet despite working with kids, and knowing the impact that … Continue reading A mother’s pride…

All I want for Christmas…

I do love the Christmas season. Not one for exaggerated lighting, dancing santas or too much tinsel, but do I love the idea of spending time with loved ones, sharing a meal, a good movie and board game, glass of Bailey’s and little bit of bubbly.

I have learnt….

As another year passes, I am so very grateful to see another year, be surrounded by people whom I love and love me, have safe place to call home and to love what I do.

Doing it all….

Jogging along I normally focus on one lamppost at a time to distract my mind away about how far I have to go….as I turn a corner all of the lampposts are in a other side of the … Continue reading Be unstoppable

Winning when you don’t get gold

Much of the past weekend I watched my daughter perform in another competitive dance event. There were a huge number of children made up and filled with anxiety and excitement about getting on the stage and putting out their best performance after many many rehearsals. It’s funny how all of a sudden you, the non-qualified … Continue reading Winning when you don’t get gold

One pebble at a time

No matter how many times we’re reminded, I am constantly saddened by the fragility of life. Today I am grateful for my beautiful sister. It truly pains me to see you searching for your own peace of mind but I stand resolute in my commitment to be strong, loving and patient for and with you. … Continue reading One pebble at a time
