Extreme Parenting Video Project

I really should have shown you all this earlier!
What a wonderful project, all put together by Elizabeth over at: a moon, worn as if it had been a shell

I wish all new parents could see that there is hope, you just need faith and love.

You know things are going ok when...

I start cooking from scratch againI cook all the timeI eat the things that I cook (well, I share them anyway!)I get out in my gardenI remove all the weeds I can seeI start to plant my belated Aug/Sep cropsI clean my house I start thinking about Christmas and the food I will make this yearOMG, Christmas...what the?I start planning my running days againThe kids are happy. The husband is happy (well...relatively...considering his recent dental ordeal) This is the last week of term 3. Which means school holidays are looming.
We are very much looking forward to a few days over in the Barossa.  We are looking forward to some warm weather hopefully. We are looking forward to catching up with our mates.
PS. I am adding a couple of photos from our recent night out at the 4P Aussie Kidz major fundraiser. Another awesome night helping to raise funds for our favourite charity. There is something so special about hanging out with our 'other' family.

Words in my mind, that I cannot write

Do yourself a favour and read this:


It speaks volumes to me.
Thanks to Elizabeth over at a moon, worn as if it had been a shell for sharing.

The angels among us

Do you believe in Angels?

I do.

Not just the ones from above.

But the ones who walk among us.
The friends who check in to make sure you are ok.
That one person who takes your children to the park after school (who our kids adore).
The family members who are always there.

Knowing someone cares can make a big difference.

RUOK DAY is coming up again on September 13th. This day is about asking each other R U OK?
So many people hide their anxiety, depression and other mental health issues.
It is ok to go through ups and downs in life.
People recover better if they are surrounded by people that care.
