Something that has really annoyed me for the last 20 years or so is that whenever I walk into my room I can see under my bed. And of course I store things like bags of clothes, photo albums, documents etc etc under my bed. But I just had enough of looking at that shit… Continue reading DIY Bed Skirt.
The above picture is actually from a McCalls pattern. I saw this picture on Pinterest and had a good look at it, sorted it out in my cluttered brain and then proceeded to make one pet bed complete with a top blanket...and I did it in about 15 mins for about $8. I just know… Continue reading DIY Pet Bed…Cheap and Easy.
Tiny houses...easy to clean, quick to tidy, no clutter (cause there is no room), sounds dreamy to me...but idealy, I would love to have a big old cottage type of house with a tiny little cottage arts and crafts studio out the back of my non-existent house, over looking my non-existent rolling hills and my… Continue reading Sweet Cottage Cuteness.
Just a few quick iphone shots of the front garden. Lorikeets (birds) and bottlebrushes (tree). The lorikeets are having a ball with all the new blooms on this tree, and they are so noisy, but it's a beautiful noise. And the cats are absolutely loving it too. They may or may not be very frustrated… Continue reading Birds and Bottlebrush
I just love the Union Jack, partly because it appears on our flag as well, and partly because of the strong colours. I always go for the antique, well worn Union Jack decorator pieces. And to have a rug with the Union Jack on it would be devine. One could only hope. Have a… Continue reading Jack, Union Jack.

Anyone that does not have children...this graphic will make you laugh. But please believe me when I say real life is much much much worse. To "complete" this housework, you will need at least 24 hours. You may also be vacuuming at 2am in the morning cause the kids are awake anyway and there is… Continue reading Without kids, With kids…
Some days it just all comes together. And some days it just all turns to shit. I had the first one today. Yay for us. I also bumped into a few (four) old and dear friends at the shops this afternoon. That was really strange, but I was so happy to see them all. It… Continue reading Who Ya Gonna Call?
Flowering tea balls are usually served in containers made of glass so that the flowering effect can be seen. The flowering balls can usually be reused two or three times without the tea becoming bitter. It is unknown if the tea balls are from modern China or much older. So give it a try, you… Continue reading The Amazing Flowering Tea Balls.
Woke up late this morning, watched the news while having breakfast. My daughter got ready for school and I go and wait in the car. Suddenly remember that I didn't make lunch for her...go and make a quick lunch, lacking in nutrition 😦 Get back in the car. Well that wasn't too bad. 8.15 am… Continue reading Close Encounter…

Well, last night I was a little bored, not that I didn't have anything to do, just didn't want to do it...so I gave the blog a bit of a face lift. I hope I haven't confused too many people. I'd really like to know what you think about the change. I think this format… Continue reading A Change Is As Good As A Holiday.
So disappointed this morning 😦 Where are my kangaroos? My big mob of roos? Maybe it was just a little chilly for them this morning. Every morning, on the school run, we drive past a big mob of roos. Probably about 40 or 50ish. I drive down the hill and off to the right is… Continue reading Where Are My Kangaroos?
Having been a parent for quite some time now, I know exactly what I am doing...not at all. Because with each passing month something changes. You hit a new and unusual problem. Stages aren't just for the little ones...IT NEVER CHANGES...STAGES...EVERY YEAR... UNTIL...THEY... MOVE OUT. Sorry if I've burst anyones bubble there. Anyway, these stages… Continue reading A Giggleworthy List From A Mother’s Dictionary:

When I grew up I didn't think I was a normal girl. But I believe all people must think that at one point or another or all the time. I could throw a base ball like a boy. And almost take their heads off. I could hit a golf ball like a crazy person, straight up the… Continue reading You are not normal!

In my other pretend life, (the one with the beach house and the 2 golden retrievers) I have some of these in the lounge room and one or two on the way to the east wing...as you do! Amazing what colour can do, right? I have… Continue reading Some Chairs To Share…
