This may be one of those "where have you beeen??" moments, but now I have found it, I have to share. "Every girl deserves to feel beautiful just the way she is." This is particularly poignant for me as the mother of a 13 year old girl. This film clip – Dove Evolution – shows [...]

Household worker sets fire and goes on strike!

October 23rd, 2006 · 3 Comments

The washing-machine-repair-man just left.  Last week, the machine was making a rather nasty noise when spinning… and the next day after a load finished, there was a ‘smell’ in the laundry.  When I opened the machine, I found a pair of knickers firmly melted to a t-shirt.  And a big burn mark in the neck [...]

The Wallace household is no longer a pet-free-zone!

October 19th, 2006 · No Comments

I have been remiss in not sharing this wonderful news with you earlier.  But I have to admit that ‘earlier’ I actually doubted my sanity in allowing this to happen.  But now, now we wouldnt have it any other way.

October 18th, 2006 · 2 Comments

Can you hear that? The front door closed on my daughter, as she took off for the bus at 7 this morning.  I made my morning cup of tea.  And I heard it.  That silence.  The sense of peace that only comes from being the only one at home! Ahhh, how I love the sound [...]

Throwing down the Christmas Gauntlet

October 16th, 2006 · No Comments

After a successful launch of SOXS last week, I sat down to think about my own personal Christmas (and yes, I’ve invited the whole family HERE this year… that’s a story for another post.)  And checking my diary, I realised that even though the kids only went back to school for term 4 last week, [...]

Like a long awaited birth, Chris and I are very proud to announce the launch of SOXS – Save Our Christmas Sanity: How to Make Your Christmas Easy!

Feeling your Environment

October 9th, 2006 · 3 Comments

Our environment plays such a big part in how we feel, how productive we are, and how we cope with things every single day. This was brought home to me recently as I once-and-for-all fixed a few niggly things in my office.  Replaced a clunky old computer screen with a lovely 17" flat screen (cannot [...]

Solving the SOXS Dilemma

October 6th, 2006 · 2 Comments

I confessed on Chris’ Take A Bite blog yesterday – I have an addiction. You know how some women buy shoes.  And some spend their spare cash on makeup or expensive perfume.  Others like to buy designer clothes.  And others invest in nipping, tucking, primping, and stopping gravity from doing it’s stuff.
