I was born in the olden days - before the internet, mobile phones and hair straighteners. When friends moved away we wrote letters - shocking I know. Long distance phone calls were expensive, and it wasn’t something I ever did. When I was in grade 6 my best friend moved away. She didn’t go far, but far enough that we never really saw each other. So we wrote letters instead. I met a girl at a…

School Routine

Arhhhhh that old chestnut. That constant challenge to get all the little people to their daily places of learning, with the right equipment, within a timely matter - without losing your shit. This is the third week back at school in Queensland. So far, so good, I think.

Not really dress weather, can’t really give up the jumpers and even tee-shirts make the occasional appearance. I made the wrong decision today, decided to give my new fancy shorts a run. I totally love them, and think they are super flattering, however, it really wasn’t shorts and tee-shirt weather here…
