What every busy career woman/mum needs… a Housedad like Mister Smith!

February 26th, 2007 · No Comments

I have always said that what I needed most in my quest to balance work with family and play was a Wife.  Or a clone who doesn’t sleep . But I might be changing my mind… maybe what I really need is one of these… Mister Smith, Housedad. Check out the range of products – [...]

Catching the 'why we blog' virus

February 26th, 2007 · 5 Comments

Why do I blog?  Well, this particular post is because my dear friend Chris from Pink Apple tagged me!  Can that be reason #1? Seriously, this meme has been getting round for a while now, and some – like Rosa, and Tony, left the tag open for any who felt like taking up the challenge. [...]

Reimagining our daily life – envisage how great it can be!

February 24th, 2007 · 1 Comment

We have a unique opportunity, at any stage in our lives, to go back to the drawing board and reimagine our life how we would like it. I’ve been doing a lot of this lately, starting with The Clearing Space and Sanctuary, and how I want these to be moving forward.  I’ve already talked a [...]

The emotional flow-on of clutter

February 24th, 2007 · No Comments

In my reflections and thought processes over the last two months, I’ve been noticing the clutter in our home.  Now, I am really big on clearing space (you’d never have guessed, of course:) and I regularly purge a cupboard or a drawer or a shelf… but when life gets busy, somehow the ‘big’ cleanups get [...]

Noticing Miracles – a wonderful day for Flying Solo

February 22nd, 2007 · No Comments

Flying Solo.  It’s a great name for a book, isnt it?  Especially for us wanna-be entrepreneurs. We’re really into Flying Solo if, right at this moment, we’re hating our corporate gig.  Hating the 8 to 6 grind (cause let’s face it – who does 9 to 5 in their right mind these days and still [...]

Reinventing and remodelling our lives – carving a new life out of the busyness

February 22nd, 2007 · 1 Comment

The search for balance, for fulfilment, for space is often thwarted by our sheer busy-ness.  It almost seems counter-productive to want to reinvent ourselves, to remodel some part of our lives, as the effort that takes will make us even busier. I have come across much advice in my quest for self-employment. It always seems [...]

Clearing Space and Restoring Batteries – Sometimes we just need an extension to our holiday…

February 15th, 2007 · No Comments

Sometimes enough just isnt enough. I took January off for a month of rest, to refresh and reenergise myself whilst spending time with my family. And we spent 10 days of that time away at a beautiful beach house, really relaxing and enjoying the sunshine and each other’s company (and a few good books…) And [...]

Getting Still #2 – Addicted to Adrenaline

February 5th, 2007 · 4 Comments

My dear friend Chris recently wrote about the impact on her life reading a book had. A specific book, which helped her diagnose her addiction. Before you think the worst, she was talking about addiction to that most terrible of substances – ADRENALINE. And I felt this was oh, so relevant in this series of [...]

Top reasons to not live your life at 100mph. Getting Still #1

February 4th, 2007 · 3 Comments

Often, the best way to accomplish something is to slow down. I wrote about my recent family beach holiday here.  About the lessons I learned about letting the water that is your life settle and get calm long enough for the sediment to sink to the bottom, so that you can much more clearly see [...]

On a clear day you can see forever

February 3rd, 2007 · No Comments

It was a delicious holiday, up at Mudjimba on the beautiful Sunshine Coast of Queensland. We rented a house, literally a hop, skip and jump from the surf beach. A quiet walk to the mouth of Mooloola River… and with it’s own pool in the centre of the house. The first morning, we went early [...]
