frozen-7

At the moment I’m being tortured (or is that too strong a word?) to the tune of ‘Let it go’ from Disney’s hit movie Frozen. (Ok – I know it’s a common complaint, but here I stand, well write anyway). My torturer is very cute though (as I’m sure yours is) – in my case our four-year-old son is rather … Read More

hair

I tried so very hard to forget the above hairstyle! I almost forgot that I was someone before I was a Mum. I spent so long trying to be a Mum. When I was trying to be a Mum, I almost forgot that I was still someone. I made my identity out of being an infertile woman. That sucked! I … Read More

Zen and the Art of French Braiding

Kathy Krugerbalance, go with the flow, motherhood3 Comments

french braid

I’ve always wanted to use an eclectic, if slightly pompous sounding title for a blog post and Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance is a classic best-selling book. I’ve officially become a Dance Mum, or a hairdresser, or probably just a shadow of both, but as we head into dance eisteddfod season this year I seem to have grown … Read More

A recipe for balance

japanese feast 1

Is it just me or is cooking getting more complicated than ever these days? Is nutrition getting even more confusing? Ingredients more exotic? Techniques more bizarre? Healthy eating more nutty? You can now cook in a water bath (is there another kind of bath) which is simply? a method for baking custards, cheesecakes and the like in a pan of … Read More

Slow is not boring

If you’re savouring a return to school term, then chances are you’re enjoying your ears being spared that most moronic of holiday ear-worms: “I’m bored”! “Would you rather be back at school?” Scowl! Perhaps it’s you instead lamenting the end of that slower, sweeter school holiday pace, or rather lack of speed – actual time to get off the hamster … Read More

Soft is not weak

Marshmallows

If I called you soft would you take it as an insult or a compliment? Given the title of the post, you’re probably inclined to think of soft in a ‘soft’ way – in other words to view softness as an attribute. But let’s face it, in a yang, masculine world ‘soft’ is more often derisive – a male describing … Read More

Drumroll…well actually it’s not that dramatic. Transitions imply slow and steady, even if it tis the season for rather dramatic metamorphosis…the whole life, death, to new life again message of Easter has got to be the ultimate reminder that change is inevitable (and even when it is quick it is seldom painless). This rather slack blogger is going to be … Read More

I dare you to smile right now – wherever you are. Smile at someone, smile wide, grin big until your face hurts. Doesn’t that feel better. See – I made you smile. So for no other reason than the fact I’ve been smiling a lot lately and since I’m even smiling at the fact that I can’t think of anything … Read More

The good C words

Kathy Krugercontentment, happiness, perspective9 Comments

letter_C

*Word Nerd Alert* Clearly there are some not so great ‘C’ words, and even though I do drop the f-bomb, those words will remain off (my) limits. Off-limit words shall include a few that on the face of it may seem acceptable in some circumstances (competition, comparison, even conflict) but that really we should rid from our vocabularies. And our … Read More

Find your flow by letting go

In the flow

You might call me lazy, but I like to follow the wisdom of Chinese sage Lao Tsu when he says ‘By letting go, all things get done’. Sounds easy doesn’t it. Just relax. Chill out. Like you don’t actually have to DO anything – just go with the flow (I bet you’re picturing yourself floating on a lie-low down some … Read More

Give in to what is within

IMG_0059 vintage denim crop_edited-1

One of my fellow yoga teachers wisely says: “yoga is not about the shapes you make.” That’s so true, and I’d add that yoga is very much about shaping who you are, or more accurately, revealing the shape of the real you. You’ve probably read plenty of articles talking about how yoga is much more than asana practice…and it is, … Read More

It’s gone now – for another four years. Our bonus day. I hope you made the most of it, which may not have been so easy since it fell on a Monday and Mondays can be hard days to make the most of. Four years ago, on the leap year day 29 February, 2012, I was still flush with gratitude, … Read More

LoserSmiley

Seriously, after a minute with your inner critic you should have un-friended her. Instead she’s sitting at the top of your Facebook feed posting stuff like: “Your life is soooo boring, no-one has even liked let alone shared your latest post and probably hardly anyone has even seen it because while they haven’t un-friended you (out of politeness), you’re not … Read More

You know that feeling – you’re lying back in a hammock, cool breeze caressing your face, great new book waiting to be read, the waves gently lapping the beautiful sandy beach – perhaps your even on some tropical isle and a waiter is about to bring you something to drink that’s cool and exotic and tastes oh so good. And … Read More
