Thought of The Week

I’m not totally enthralled by valentines day. In fact, I hate it. I resent the fact that it is boxed into romantic love. I love, love, but wish the occasion was used to celebrate all kinds of love.
We all have many different loves. There is of course Eros Love – the intimate kind of [...]

Yes, it’s December! The giddiness of Christmas preparations and excitement never ebbs in my home during the festive season. And yes, I have Christmas carols ringing through the house, on my iPod, at work, etc…I just love this time of year.
Driving home from work yesterday, however, the lyrics of It’s The Most Wonderful Time of The Year [...]

For the last few years Christmas has been bitter-sweet. Let me explain. Recently we had been living overseas and loved all the experiences it brought – all but the exception of Christmas time. Christmas is a time to be with family and being away from your loved ones during Christmas is almost unbearable.
I love Christmas time. I relish putting up [...]

 Recently listening to the hilarity over the phone to my Canadian friends during their Thanksgiving festivities did start me wishing I had a super power like instant transporting.   
Yet rather than wishing and hoping and dreaming to join the fray of fun, I started my own little Thanksgiving evening. Now there was no turkey or guests, [...]

Thought of the week…
Saying thank you is easy. I say it hundreds of times a day often carrying neither weight nor effort. For me it could range from thanking someone at work for simply passing the stapler to muttering thank you at the lights when they turn green to sarcastically thanking someone for not letting me into their lane during [...]

Hmmm…your dining table…how’s it looking? Do you actually dine there? Or does it serve a ‘higher’ purpose for storing things such as ironing, homework, the computer, etc?
In the past when I lived in a tiny apartment, my dining table made for the perfect storage spot rather than what it’s [...]

Thought of the week… 
Spring has sprung in Australia and I am determined to jump on the ‘home grown veg’ band wagon! 
Something wonderful that I have noticed from living in Melbourne, is that over the last few years, the humble veggie patch has not only made a serious comeback, it has become part of so many friends regular food [...]

Thought of the week…
As much as I love sitting down with a box of popcorn in front of a box office hit, there is nothing better than reading the book first.
Head down to your local bookstore and grab a great read and exercise your imagination once again.

Thought of the week…
You know those moments when you just sense something’s not quite right?
My daughter loves to explore and ‘be one’ with nature, so often she roams the neighbourhood alone road testing various parks as the perfect spot to read or journal.
She’s almost 16, so the alarm bells in my head and heart are not as loud as [...]

Thought of the week…
Surprise someone!
Everyone loves a hamper. Why not surprise someone this week with a bundle of goodies just for fun. While out doing the grocery shopping, add a few extra items to your trolley for a loved one, a neighbour, a teacher, a collegue, etc. Brighten someone’s day with a little extra effort.
