- Hi friends. To those I have met in person and the many I haven't - welcome to our nest. Thanks so much for stopping by. I am a mama of six baby birds and wife to one papa bird. Our nest is an intricately woven home, crafted over time, through the highs and lows of life, and many in-betweens. We are soon to leave our Australian nest to re-locate to our second home, the UK. This is our story, of our new life in a new country, the trials and tribulations, bidding goodbye to precious friends and embracing new. I know at times, our wings will be flapping so hard to keep us moving forward that we will tire, however, a little perseverence will bring effortless gliding amongst a soft breeze, and even stronger wings for the journey ahead. Welcome to our flight......

I slept in this morning! I didn't rise until 8.15! In kiddy-land that is like sleeping in till lunch-time. It was quite liberating. I knew I should get up and start my day but, well, I just didn't. I could here all the rabble going on in the lounge room but just shoved my head further under my mound of pillows to block it all out. However upon reluctantly rising, number 3 son had to leave for school just after half 8 and of course he was still in his jammies, no breakfast, no school lunch, no swimming gear, no brushed teeth, combed hair or clean socks without holes and no missing library book found. It was like a mini challenge seeing how fast I could race around the house in my jammies to get him ready. I felt quite proud of myself when I waved him off on time! You know the saying - small things amuse ...........:)
