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 […]

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?

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 […]

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 […]

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!

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Bouncing on the bed.
Bouncing on the bed.

Sometimes it is just easier to say YES instead of NO as a parent. There are so many occasions when you have to say NO even when you would much rather say YES and right now both our girls are doing a good job of challenging our parenting. There is a lot of NO around […]

Winter solstice.
Winter solstice.

This is a blog post that could have been all about how perfect our family is, what a brilliant Mum I am and how Ron and I are so good at parenting. Instead it’s the truth. Parenting has been a challenge recently. We were all horribly sick for a week a month ago and everything […]

Moving in.
Moving in.

Moving out of our old house was smooth and relatively stress free. I spent the majority of the morning with the girls up at the shopping centre having coffee and the rest of the morning at the library choosing books with the girls while Ron helped the guys move all our furniture and belongings into […]

Children and change.
Children and change.

How are the girls you ask? How did they feel about leaving our old house, do they love the new house? Has the transition been fraught with emotional distress or has it all been a big adventure? Well, firstly thanks for asking and secondly, the girls are doing really well. Remarkably well. In fact I […]

Moving out.
Moving out.

I have moved house a lot, moved countries a fair bit, carried my belongings around in a backpack and had a burly crew of men box it all up into a container and ship it across the ocean, but this move was different. This move was tied up in all sorts of emotional strings. This […]

Priorities.
Priorities.

Right now we could talk about this….. Or we could focus on this instead. This being one of the biggest reasons why we took a huge risk on this house…… The quiet culdesac, the lovely neighbours, the better postcode, the 200m walk up the road to an awesome park….. The change in our living space […]

We are in!
We are in!

On the morning of Tuesday 24th April 2012 at 7am we moved into our new house. A mere 109 days after we first walked through and looked past the dirt, grime and neglect to see the family home that we could grow into. Its all starting to finally feel real now that we have all […]

Easter fun and games.
Easter fun and games.

Our Easter plans changed dramatically at the beginning of the year when we had our offer on the new house accepted with an extended settlement that put the move-in date bang on the Easter long weekend. We usually go camping with Ron’s parents for Easter at the lovely campsite on the northern beaches in Sydney […]

The final piece of the puzzle – Part IV

(I am keeping this brief because I am off to Melbourne tomorrow for the Digital Parents Conference! I can’t wait to catch up with old friends, meet up with new friends and spend some down time with special friends! Ron will be solo parenting for the next four days, wish him luck!) You can find […]

The tale and the saga – Part III
The tale and the saga - Part III

(The photos in this post are the ones I took for our marketing campaign, honestly, one the most stressful photoshoots I have ever done! I felt as though the sale of our house depended on my photographs!) The first few weeks of having our house on the market went really well. We had record numbers […]

The tale of two houses – Part II
The tale of two houses - Part II

You can find Part I here…… Where did I leave the story, aah, yes, we bought a new house while still living in a homewe already owned! Thanks to all the research Ron had been doing over the previous months and a good relationship with the estate agents that we bought our existing home from […]

The tale begins – Part I
The tale begins - Part I

Last Thursday was a big day in the White household and I was finally able to spill the beans on our huge news. We have sold our house! It’s hard to explain why I haven’t blogged about all the massive events that have taken place this year already, many of you have noticed how scarce […]

Photographic catch up post – For Mum!
Photographic catch up post - For Mum!

Mum, this one for you! Also, its for all of you out there who are tired of looking at the empty socket in Amy’s mouth in that other post! Living room dance party. Morning cuddles. Quickly turned into morning wrestles. A visit to the Zoo the day before Amy’s first day at school! Sisters, unbelievable! […]

Homebodies.
Homebodies.

Poor Ron had to go back to work today, its a bit of a reality check for all of us and Amy has been asking a lot of questions about how school is going to work. I know she is starting to think about all the changes coming up. I managed to talk her down […]

Everywhere and nowhere.
Everywhere and nowhere.

Like the obligatory New Year’s detox or healthy eating plan or diet (whatever name you call it!) the internet is full of photography ‘things’ in January. I don’t mean to sound petty but I have to confess to being a little tired of seeing 100 variations on the same photograph when I check in for […]
