Family / Life / Love

Love doesn’t sit there like a stone, it has to be made, like bread; remade all of the time, made new. ~Ursula K. Le Guin I think Le Guin has hit the nail on the head. Love is fluid and changes over time. Yesterday marked the 16th anniversary of our wedding day. A day that was celebrated in a low key manner with a few close friends and family. It was a day that marked […]

gratitude / the small stuff / work/life balance

Hello! It’s been some time since my fingers tapped away on my keyboard and how I have missed the feeling. My work life has been pretty hectic and full on since December 2014.

Back to school 2012 will be forever etched on my memory. Before I start my sorry tale I have to say, I am a good Mum. I am, really! I am patient, understanding and kind, ok I’m patient, understanding and kind most of the time. I cook lovely nutritious food for my off spring, I bake tasty goodies and when we’re out and about I keep them in my line of vision most of the time. […]

Yesterday marked the end of one of the most challenging yet rewarding experiences of my life so far. I have just completed a programme of post graduate study in the area of community and adult education.
