I have had a frugal few weeks thanks to a clever meal plan and a great grocery shop where I spent $175 on mostly fruit and veg which managed to last us ten days! The meals I made during that time included: chicken and veg rice paper rolls with dipping sauce, chicken stirfry, various salads […]

I just wanted you to know.
I just wanted you to know.

There is lots going on and not much happening at the moment. Its a funny time of year and despite my love of colder weather, I am over winter. Its wet, freezing and restricting me from doing all the things I love right now, like running, taking photographs and hanging out with my children and […]

Wednesday started out a very good day, I dropped a happy and smiling Amy at preschool and was so proud to see her greeted by all her little friends with such joy and excitement. Then I dropped Ron at work and Stella was mumbling away contentedly to herself in the back of the car while Ron and […]

The first in a series of posts
