Spring Time!

I love Spring. Although- I do not love the hayfever that comes along with it… But other than that – I love Spring! The kids spend most afternoons outside, we get to play in our garden and the sweet warm days leading into summer get longer and hotter!!

Memories

Today, I….

Changing my ways to His ways

Today I sat in my bible study group and listened to our Growth Works DVD about idle moments that we have every day that we could be doing so much more with. Spending the day thinking about it further, I realised I do have many idle moments throughout the day that I could be using […]

Packing Tip #2

When you have started packing the boxes, remember to number each of them and have a master list of what each box contains. This is very helpful when you are unpacking and you need the kids cups and not the high school year books.

Packing tip #1

Always start packing as soon as you know you have to move. The craft stuff, extra linen, anything in the back cupboards – the sooner you start the better it will be! This also works after you have moved. Try and unpack everything into its own place as soon as possible, its a rush and […]

First in the pool

When we were kids, we used to have an ongoing battle at the start of each swimming season to see who would be first in the Grandma and Grandpas pool.  Although it was never talked about openly (apart from the back seat of the yellow bus), we were usually upset if one of our cousins […]

environmental effects

I am not one that really understands all the carbon footprints that we are making and the positions our country on global warming or how driving greener cars really makes a difference and all these “new ways” of trying to make the world a better cleaner safer place. I signed up to get our electricity […]
