Whew! Today has been a busy one. Taking kids to various events – one to the hairdresser, another to a party and the 3rd to work – kept me out of trouble all morning! Oh, and an … interesting… trip up Mountain Highway (one word – cyclists!) to collect family photos from Tony Rawson Photography… Read More
Oh my! I knew I had been busy, but a month! Making me happy this week: Victorian school holidays have started. And I could sleep in this morning. I have completed one class set of assessment tasks. The school presentation balls are finished for another year. I love doing them, but boy do they take… Read More
It has been some time since I have written a Making Me Happy post. Not because I have had nothing to write, but because I keep forgetting to write on a Sunday, or have so much going on, I run out of time to write. Over the last few months I have had lots of… Read More
Many years ago I subscribed to a newsletter written by Ellen Chester of With My Needle. This was long before she started her design company.

Today we honour all Australians and New Zealanders who have followed in the footsteps of these brave men and boys (the youngest to die in Gallipoli was only 14!). They shall not grow old as we who… Read More
A time for families. Wishing you all a safe and happy Easter….

Have you ever felt overwhelmed? Busy all the time just ‘living’? Never having time for anything but work and commitments? I have. I do. It is really weird, but just when I started to find myself in that debilitating position of having so much to do and so little time to do it, I picked… Read More
Making me happy this week. A kangaroo joining us at school. Reading Martina Cole’s Good Life before I go to sleep each night. Enjoying a coffee with my brother when I get home from work. Dogs cuddling on the knee. Spending a wonderful day stitching.
