Ye Ol' London Town, what a magnificent city. [Snap of the city taken from the London Eye] We arrived on a Monday around lunchtime, excited but tired & weary from the long flight. We had pre-booked & pre-paid from Australia,... Continue reading

Over the last few months I've been gathering a few supplies to make a simple & junky type travel album for our upcoming holiday. I love the idea of starting with something plain, adding a few interest points then scribbling... Continue reading

Oh Janelle, firstly WOW, you are so level headed & brave. Have to commend you for making such a huge decision, it must have been very difficult. But I hope you know the world does need you, so whenever you are ready, inspired & recharged, please make sure you put some more 'Janelle' out into the world. Huge hugs & much love dear friend. Can't wait to catch up on the phone soon, I'll just get my course finished & then I'll recharge myself for a few days & then lets chat away! Kate xo

Thanks so much for visiting Kelly! I've always loved to see how others set up their spaces at home too. There are lots of blogs, particularly in the USA, that I've found have large families and they share how they organise clothes & have dressing/clothes storage rooms etc. Amazing. I've gone along that route myself by combining all 4 girls clothes together & we now have a dressing/playroom for the kids while they are still little. My husband is superman keeping up with the washing of the clothes but I'm not sure I will ever be quite so good with the sorting & putting away but combining certainly has helped. As for bedrooms, we have 3 kids rooms. Twins share, big girls share & Buddy being the only boy has his own room. Be nice if occasionally he would sleep the whole night in there LOL. Might have to post about their bedrooms at some stage. I'm about to attack them all over the next few weeks & start culling toys & excess things so perhaps II'll take photos once they look all beautiful & tidy & pretend we really are so organised & tidy all the time. Ha! x

Every so often I get dissatisfied with how things are arranged at home & it becomes more painful & uncomfortable to put up with it than to completely turn things upside down & change it. It usually coincides with decreased... Continue reading

Thank you Lauren. You are so right & might I add, YOU add to my life lovely. Must catch up soon, even if it is for late night crepes [or donuts] or something. I wonder if we could find a late night delish fruity/salad cafe? Thanks for your kind words on my card! xo
