Uluru awakenings

We posted quite a few pics of our short time spent at Uluru and Kata Tjuta on social media so we won’t rehash it all, but here are a few things that you may not have known about this iconic Aussie tourism destination and that we discovered as we explored the region. 1. It’s not …

Dreams in the making

Hi!!! Remember me? I used to write random stuff here quite frequently once upon a time! One day soon I shall address all of that and why I've been AWOL, but today I felt compelled to write (thank god, it's coming back!). I knew that it would eventually, but for a little while I wasn't …

Making time

Today was the last day of our success without stress program, the workplace training that I've been undertaking these past two months. Dressed in trackies we arrived at our room and began the session by saluting the sun with some yoga (creating flashbacks of a time about 15 years ago when I went to an advanced yoga class by …

My marketing lecturer began talking about the coincidences that occur during the decision making phase before a customer makes a purchase.  After listening to her explain, I remember thinking - OMG, this happens to me ALL. THE. TIME.  Here …

A recap of 2014

Today has been a lazy day, mostly because I’ve been toddler free!!! My lovely in-laws came for an overnight visit yesterday and decided to take my eldest daughter Billie back to their place for a couple of days! She loves spending time with her Nan and Pop so there was certainly no resistance from me. …
