How to do enthusiasm like a dog

When you’re a puppy (well I’m guessing) the world is always exciting. There’s always something new to explore and definitely something new to chew. Preferably something expensive. There is always somewhere you haven’t left your mark on yet (favourite toileting spots are emerging that sadly aren’t always outside). But you get away with being a little bit naughty – because … Read More

If you aren’t friends with me on Facebook or following my Facebook page (which also posts to Twitter because I’m lazy) then you won’t have heard our news. And shame on you! (ha, ha). I even posted to Instagram, which is kinda rare for me – because slack photographer (me) and soooo cute (him)!! I should probably pin him too. … Read More

Why it’s better to find meaning than to seek your purpose in life

*trigger warning – cuteness* Do you wish you had a dollar for every person who has agonized over finding their purpose in life? I’d put my multi-millions towards finding – no make that creating, – more meaning in life. And it would be wonderful. (of course money itself doesn’t create meaning, but we all know that story). While I believe … Read More

IMG_0149 vintage denim circle crop_edited-2

It’s been a year since I started teaching yoga. A year since I discovered what it is like to teach and started learning from my students. A year of discovering how much I still have to learn. It’s been one, two, three, four, five years since we adopted our Little Yang. Five years that have flown fast. Five years worth … Read More

What do you see?

water reflection_edited-1

I love watching clouds form all puffy in the sky and watching their reflections in water too – trying to spot animals, shapes and even signs, discerning subtle messages in the sky and on the shimmering water – a floating canvas. Lately I’ve been cloud-spotting reflections in the lake out the back from the vantage point of our brand new … Read More

Just remember and forget

memories (1)

It’s pretty simple really – you just need to remember some things and forget other ones. Why then do we forget to remember what we really need to, and fail to forget what we should just let go of? So this school holidays the kids have been doing a little free-ranging. Exhibit A. Play, imagination, improvisation and just the right … Read More

Even if you haven’t tried it you probably know that colouring in (for adults) is the latest craze in finding calm and creativity – I’m also here to tell you it unblocks writers block. Well I’m here to write that, so that’s something. Yep, if your creative drain is blocked and the words won’t flow, let the colours. Regular readers … Read More

The greatest journey we make is the one that brings us back to where we started. So I wrote a post for the Virgin Australia Voyager travel competition for Problogger, and THE Richard Branson may have followed me on Twitter as a result. I don’t really do Twitter properly, but hey, Richard Branson. Followed. ME! Yes Sir! And then I wrote … Read More

What I love about hubby as a Dad

Kathy Krugercontentment, gratitude, happiness3 Comments

Beach

I reckon most mothers love and appreciate their man more when he becomes a Dad than they did before when he was just a plain old partner (not necessarily in the bedroom lovin’ department, but that is the inevitable price of parenthood). But there’s nothing quite like seeing your child’s face light up at seeing their Dad to make you … Read More

Growing up, inside out

You know that saying by Elisabeth Stone about the feeling as a parent that your heart is walking around outside your body – well right now part of my heart is in Canberra and we can’t see or talk to her for three and half days. It hurts a bit. Of course she’ll be fine, our Miss Yin, on the … Read More

My faults (in 50 words or less)

Writing-a-list-1024x692

This is hard to do – confine my faults to 50 words or less – abbreviate a long list of shortcomings lest I bore you even more, or go completely to town on myself. I’ve wasted 35 words already (make that 40)! Can I start again? You can count from NOW. I yell – my worst trait Over-dramatisation *the hypen … Read More

So this is not a fire safety instruction you should follow, but it is what I feel liking doing – just stopping, dropping, flopping – feeling a bit burnt out by the first half of the year. Burnt out with blogging – as my efforts aren’t exactly setting the world alight. Burnt out by the rush and stress that is the … Read More
