School went back this week for 2015. My Brumby Girl is in Grade Two and NinNin has settled in seamlessly to school life starting Prep. That leaves me at home with the two rugrats – CeeJay and Mickey Bull. The days won’t be dull, that’s for sure!
For me, six weeks of holiday just wasn’t enough. One week has passed already and I still don’t have my ‘Back to School Routine’ Mojo on….I miss last week. And the week before….
I know, I know I can’t live in the past. But we’ve had so much fun! Art Workshops, camping, road trips, friends, swimming, Water Parks, movies, shopping, play dates, baking, manicures, haircuts, Disney Live, restaurants, boathouses and ice creams, seafood, rain, planting, mulching, fertilising, fruit trees!!
But I have learnt so much too! Well, truthfully 2014 was kind of my year for growth – I’m much more comfortable with who I am and what I’m worth. The last six weeks was just a culmination of all that was good and worth sharing with my favourites.
Once a teacher, always a teacher. I love to learn. Now, I love to share what I learn with my family so that I might help them travel even further on their journey than I have on my own……a little ‘head-start’ so to speak. If I knew what I do now 20 years ago……my life would be no different physically but I think my mental game would have been A Grade!

I’ve thought about my first post for the year for nearly a week. I’ve been blank. Even when I started……still blank.
Frozen is playing on the television (for the gazillionth time) but it still sucks me in. Well, actually watching the girls watch Frozen for the gazillionth time is what really sucks me in. The awe is the same as the very first screening, only now they know the entire script of every single character by heart…..I’m pretty sure I’m not alone on this one?!
But I digress, my point is, I’m still blank……and now I’m rambling instead. But you know what? That’s ok too!
I’ve learnt to pay attention to myself. Listen to my soul. Share the love.
I’ve learnt a million little things –
I’m not the black sheep.
Fairy Gardens make children happy.
Life is meant to be lived.
Everyone has a purpose for being here.
Same is boring.
The grass is greener where you water it.
Opportunities come knocking.
I don’t play Simon Says.
Sharing really IS caring.
I. AM. LOVED.
I’m grateful for the people I draw strength from. The people who have shown me about the kind of person I want to be.
The universe is a greater entity.
2015 is going to be great!
