Family Portrait
Family Portrait

Family portrait taken on the 5th February 2015. I renewed my domain for another year and will see how I go blogging again. This space means too much to me to just let it go. Of course things have to be different now that the girls are older and more their own people, but I […]

Succulents
Succulents

We have a big old wooden table outside on our deck which is a lovely spot to sit at when friends come round but I find it hard to lay a pretty table. I had envisioned a container of succulents and had two perfect terracotta wide open bowls in mind but I lacked the enthusiasm […]

A renewal.
A renewal.

The good news is I renewed my domain and hosting, so at least I am intending on keeping the website going, as for which direction I will take it,  I am going to have to figure that out. For now, I will think about posting again with some regularity, in the future I might password […]

Blogging… going forward.
Blogging... going forward.

My domain is up for renewal and I really am unsure of what to do, start to blog again, stop blogging altogether, blog but differently so my children maintain their privacy, blog but password protect my posts. So many questions. What should I do?

Painting the outside of our house – part 1
Painting the outside of our house - part 1

Painting the new/old house inside and out was high on our to-do list before we moved in last year. As it turned out we had an extra ten days to get the house ready before we moved in thanks to our initial move-in date being cancelled due to a 1-in-100 year rain event. Although we […]

Growing and changing.
Growing and changing.

This year has seen a lot of growing and changing in our family and our home. We have celebrated a few birthdays already and some other milestones. Amy took a swan dive off the cubby house and split open her chin which meant a swift visit to the local emergency room. She was brave until […]

Super Sarah White
Super Sarah White

What about me you ask? What has been going on in my life? Well, sit back, relax and let me tell you a story. The last year of my life has been such a journey. Sadly it’s not really been one of those inspirational journeys where everyone ends up enlightened and better people as the […]

Missing, presumed busy elsewhere.
Missing, presumed busy elsewhere.

It is nearly May and this will be my first post for the year. Apparently there are lots of friends and family out there who miss this blog and to be honest, I miss it too. So much has changed in the world of blogging over the last few years but before all that, and […]

Dance concert happiness.
Dance concert happiness.

They are happy because they both got trophies, I am happy because its over for another year! It was a wonderful day, both girls did so well, Stella was a star considering it was her first actual concert and Amy danced beautifully, so much improvement. We are very proud! (Also, I FINALLY mastered the dance […]

Christmas – last year

A bit of Christmas nostalgia as I go through our video camera getting ready for the Christmas concert and presentation day next week. Two things. Amy looks SOOOOOO little and wow, Stella really couldn’t talk properly!

The Stage.
The Stage.

We are a few days away from the annual dance concert. This will be Stella’s first time dancing up on stage and she is pretty excited! Last year she was heartbroken not to be allowed to get up and have a go and I know she is going to love it. It helps she will […]

Renovations – the side of the house
Renovations - the side of the house

Buying a rundown old house means there is always something on the to-do list and even though we have been in our home for more than 7 months now, that list hardly seems to shrink in fact the longer we are here, the more we keep adding to the list. One of the things that […]

Renovations – the deck
Renovations - the deck

The deck was probably the easiest part of our whole renovation in terms of decision making and actual construction and yet it brings such a huge amount of joy to our lifestyle. If you asked me to chose between the deck and the kitchen, which one I love the most…. it would be a tough […]

Renovations – new sewer system
Renovations - new sewer system

There are many side-effects to buying a new house. Along with the fun stuff, imagining where all your furniture will go and picking out paint colours, comes the negative. Discovering that your sewer system is borked and needs to be replaced. Sigh. We have had lots of ups with our house but also many lows, […]

Renovations – moving into the kitchen
Renovations - moving into the kitchen

Because we still haven’t completed the splashback or the rangehood, or even the lighting for the matter, I am loathe to photograph my kitchen properly for the “after” shot. We are getting there however, last weekend we bought our pendant lights which will eventually be installed over the kitchen bench. As I mentioned previously, our […]

Renovations – the kitchen…. continued.
Renovations - the kitchen.... continued.

So after the kitchen was installed, a  week late due to some issues with where the gas and electricity was plumbed in for the stove. What? I had no idea that I would end up becoming project manager, by default. Just because I happened to be home at the time the tradesmen were installing stuff […]

Renovations – The kitchen
Renovations - The kitchen

One of the pieces of advice I have given to some friends who are renovating their home, is not to leave too many finishing details until the end of the job. Or at least to ensure those little details are completed before the room becomes functional. In our case we left the decision about the […]

Farm visit
Farm visit

Last week our playgroup went on our annual excursion, we went up to a small farm about 40 minutes away and had a lovely morning together. Its been hard getting Stella to playgroup the last few months, there are quite a few younger boys and the playing has changed, she is happier to go now […]

The girls.
The girls.

I really need to write a long post about our beautiful girls but right now my little old laptop is running red hot from the three photoshoots I am editing and I literally cannot do anything on it without it slowing down to practically backwards speed. So, it’s another iPhone post, thank goodness for iPhone […]

Milestones and kilometers.
Milestones and kilometers.

Today I woke up before my family and got dressed in my running gear that I had laid out the night before. I got a lift with my running buddy to the event and then lined up with thousands of other runners and prepared myself to run 10kms. It was an awesome run, maybe a […]

Finally home.
Finally home.

Today was a good day, a really good day. A spontaneous invite saw lots of friends descend with beers and steaks and the children ran wild in the garden while the dad’s put together an early Christmas present for our girls. A big trampoline, I don’t know who is more excited, them or me! The […]

Little Athletics
Little Athletics

Amy has been doing Little Athletics for nearly two months now. Its once a week, on a Friday night, from 6pm until about 8.30pm and so far she loves it. She is one of the youngest in her age group of Under 7 Girls because the cut off is October. Strange that its different to […]

Lofty ambitions.
Lofty ambitions.

Its November and that means Nablopomo or National Blog Posting Month where I am supposed to do a blog post a day! Which is incredibly ambitious when you look at how sporadic my blog posts have been for the last few months. Even more ambitious when its the second day of the month and already […]
