Another year older..

I had a wonderful day on Wednesday… The kids woke me up then Luca raced down the hall to get David to open the linen press because ‘that’s where my present is hiding’. They made a grand entrance into the bedroom with my gifts and I’m glad I captured it all on film – my family […] Read more…

Luca’s First Day

Well its official – Luca has started school. It was one of those surreal moments were we walked through the school gate and left the baby years behind and looked straight into the future of text books, homework and exams. I’m not sure how I feel about it all – I miss the baby years […] Read more…

So many new experiences…Swimming

Luca had been to swimming lessons when he was a baby, I started him at 6 months but because he always got colds and sniffles I stopped going thinking it was the pool that was making him sick. It wasn’t until he was 3 that I started up again at a different swimming centre in […] Read more…

Lots to be grateful for…

I’m getting very sentimental as we approach Nicola’s first birthday. She’s growing up so quickly, infact, our whole family is – physically and emotionally. As each day passes, each of us are getting stronger, more independent whilst keeping close to our bond. Luca starts school soon and Nicola has already started daycare. Life moves on. […] Read more…

15 resolutions – what’s yours?

January is always a tough month – we’re back at work, starting a new year from scratch and probably on a diet or a detox. For many of us, we start the new year with high hopes of changing an aspect of our lives – giving up something that is naughty is always something high […] Read more…

Welcome 2015

I’ve been MIA for the past 2 weeks for a good reason – I’ve just had a fantastic holiday…albeit only 10 minutes down the road at my dad’s place in South Curl Curl.

Christmas

Looking back on the year that changed me forever…

I don’t recall any other year in my life that has taught me so many lessons, than 2014. I experienced the highs of my long awaited IVF baby, Nicola in January and the lows of loosing my mum to Pancreatic Cancer in May. I was also forced to make decisions about Nicola’s health and the […] Read more…
