It’s what these last few days of the year hopefully are – slow and simple. Languorous, lazy, light. It’s Thursday as I write this but it could be a Wednesday or Friday or another day wedged between Christmas and New Year, when the ham is getting close to the bone but there is still enough for sandwiches (if you can … Read More

The 20% theory to overcome stress

discount-0001-20-1024-copy

I have a new theory to overcoming stress. I say theory because I’m still trying to practise it, and I use ‘overcome’ when really I mean ‘cope with’ or ‘reduce’, because I don’t think we can ever get rid of stress completely. But hey its a theory so I’ve got to aim high right! Short and sweet – do 20% … Read More

Freedom

freedom

I wrote a poem once entitled ‘Freedom’ that was my very first published piece of writing – I was 11-years-old and it went in the Australian Girl Guides magazine. Actually, I’ve ‘boasted’ about the poem before, in this post about freedom, democracy, the rights of children. Clearly it’s still a source of a little bit of pride, even if the … Read More

Things that make you smile

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

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

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

How to do enthusiasm like a dog

IMG_6267 small

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

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

I’ve been thinking lately how easy it is to dream big, yet still play small. And I’ve decided I’m not going to do that anymore. And it’s all thanks to Richard Branson. Not a particularly inspirational quote from the Virgin boss, entrepreneur and philanthropist (although there are plenty), but something he did – and I don’t mean his latest adventure. … Read More

You’ve been invited to a certain ‘special’ event this week where attendees are asked to SHINE. There has been much chatter (it’s not Cinderella’s Ball peeps), far too much stress (it’s not Cinderella’s Ball peeps) and plenty of fashion advice shared, along with a few laughs (Robyna is too funny). I’m not particularly stylish (yoga fashion anyone?) nor humorous (humour being a … Read More

Tips for travelling the soul journey

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

(This post is my entry into the Virgin Australia’s Voyagers Competition as part of the Problogger event) It’s funny how we travel – to far-flung places, to meet total strangers, to eat exotic foods, to lose luggage (not on Virgin Australia!) – all so we can find ourselves. It’s so much harder to find yourself when you’re lazing on your lounge … Read More

Cloud Ten

The moon looks pretty small up there in a big blue sky

It’s a real place, I swear. Sitting a bit above Cloud Nine, which is pretty darn high up, but then you’ve always sought a perfect ten and aimed for the stars. You can see them all glistening from Cloud Ten– right there in front of you. Not perfect exactly, but so close – floating up here – fluffy, light, free. … Read More
