The Royal Easter Show is one of our favourite times of the year. The showbags, the baby animals, the ducks on the slide (my number one highlight of the day), the Woolworths Food Dome! So much to do, so little time to do it! Continue reading
“It’s the job that never ends, it goes on and on my friends. Some people started doing it, not knowing what it was, and they’ll continue doing it forever just because, it is the job that never ends…” This is my laundry song, because it really does never end! From the moment you have all your washing done you’ll turn around and there will be one lone item in the washing basket, just mocking you.
So, I’m all about Easter – what’s not to love about a four day weekend and more chocolate than you can possibly handle? While I don’t prescribe to the religious aspect of it, I’m all about the bunny and the eggs! This year our Easter kicked off early with an amazing Easter preview by Cadbury.
Some people blog for fun, others want to start a business with their blogs. If this is you then when you start a blog there are a number of steps you can take to make yourself look like a professional blogger from the very beginning. By doing these from the start you won’t need to make over your blog down the track and it will make you look like you know what you are doing.
Taronga Zoo is one of our favourite places to visit as a family. We have had zoo passes for years and my son volunteered in their YATZ (Youth At The Zoo) program for 5 years. Last year was my first time at the Twilight at Taronga Concert Series to see Missy Higgins and it was AMAZING! This year we were invited by Taronga to come along to Paul Dempsey’s concert.
Rainbow cupcakes are a favourite in our house (in fact Tully wants to colour everything we bake rainbow- from the pancakes to the Yorkshire puddings!). They are great for parties or even just for fun!
You may have seen the ads on TV or online- the fanciest washing machine you have ever seen- the LG TWINWash! It promises two separate washing machines in one, plus a dryer. Basically, if it could fold the laundry every mum would be lining up around the block for one of these.
This post is a collaboration with Spriggy
Spriggy is the latest in pocket money apps. Linked to a prepaid card, Spriggy helps teach your child about managing money and learning to save. Saving is not a strong point for me. I’m more a ‘go for it and hope the money turns up’ type- but I’m trying hard to teach my kids to save. My teenagers are way better at it than me, and aren’t on board with my ‘money fairy’ attitude to life. Tully, however, has a bit of a spending habit that needs to be curbed!
Bali is one of my all-time favourite places to visit. I’ve been so many times I’ve lost count, but I’d say well over 20! One of my favourite parts of Bali recently is all the beach clubs that have popped up. They bring a whole new level of relaxation and luxury to your holiday and they do it so well over there. To help you relax here are the best beach clubs in Bali (as far as I’m concerned anyway!)
Becoming a school mum can be daunting. There is so much more required of you than when you were packing them off to daycare. There are uniforms, sports days, swimming carnivals, extra lessons, readers, library, school plays, lunch boxes and crunch and sip– just to name a few.
To help you settle into your new role we surveyed 250 mums on their top organisation tips for first-time school mums. They covered organisation, lunches, uniforms and so much more. So here’s all the information I have gathered, just to help your transition go smoothly…
