About Me

Perth, WA, Australia
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......

Welcome & Hello! ...


Well, this is my first ever blog! I am a bit of a late starter and know that the world of blogging has been up and running and thriving for quite some time but it takes me a while to get my head around these things, or maybe I am just scared of technology. Anyway, here I am and here we are. I can't really imagine anybody actually sitting down to read about my days and all they hold but, hey, you never know! This is more for me than anybody to remind myself that what I do each day does actually input into the lives of others (my children, spouse, family, friends) and I am not just existing and going through the motions inside the walls of our suburban home.

So today, 13 May 2010 - just another ordinary day with six children (beautiful and precious of course) and one tiny (but wimpy) Cavoodle dog, who can, at times, be as demanding as the children. Up early, dressing child number 4, making breakfasts (cereal for one, porridge for another, bacon and eggs for yet another, breastmilk for two others .... and then there is me, eating the leftovers ... if I am lucky). Does anybody ever ask themselves what is the point of doing housework and keeping a lovely, organised, neat and clean home, when the second you stop doing all those things they are instantly being undone? Really, why do we bother and stresss about this? It wears women down (me!!). Day after day after day. So .... my beds weren't made today and I sat and had coffee and muffins and girlie talk all morning. Even though my twin babies decided today was not the day to settle or sleep but instead party and socialise and there was weet bix mushed over the floor boards and smelly washing in the laundry and a full line of wet washing outside, I took a deep breath and enjoyed the simple things in life - coffee, food, friends:) There will always be tomorrow ...............
