The lovely phrogmom has bestowed a Liebster Award upon my blog. The Liebster Award is said to have originated in Germany. ”Liebster” translated to English means “beloved”. I was a bit confused when I saw this as I had never seen the word “liebster” but I had seen and used “liebchen”. So, I looked it up, and sure enough both words are […]

Doing… We have just had two weeks school holidays. I’ve been taking the boys to the park as often as I can, to run off their energy. This hasn’t been easy as the weather has been wild some days, with 120 to 140 km/h winds. We went out with a friend one day during the holidays. […]

Such a busy time at the moment. Having trouble keeping up with the 80 or so blogs that I subscribe to. And not being a very good blog buddy – I’m reading, just sometimes not commenting. And keeping a mental note of those who haven’t posted recently (Dark Star Burning, One Size Fits None, Duct […]

My first child kicked so hard and so much in utero, we joked that he was going to be a world class soccer player. He was active, and never seemed to rest. I worked two jobs whilst I was carrying him. One job was in a group home where one of the clients was very […]

After many years of being ruled by my head I decided that I need to give equal focus to the Heart, Hands, and Head. How did I do in January? Reading Bits and pieces, not good at concentrating on one book at a time and found that I am not alone in that department  http://www.theconfidentintrovert.com/2011/01/12/addicted-to-ideas/ Listening to Silence as much […]

first day at school

I have had children at home for 9.5 years. And now I don’t.  The youngest bloke went off to school this morning. The house is so very quiet, and at midday, an hour after the in-laws left after having a cuppa and a chat, it has hit me like a ton of bricks.  This morning was […]
