Every day the sun rises in the morning and sets in the evening – at least we hope it keeps doing so! The sun still rises and sets, even on the bleakest of days when we can’t witness its majesty. And yet despite those grey days, we seldom really appreciate the majestic ones. Each day we’re gifted a new dawn … Read More

The race that stops a nation didn’t stop me. Not in my tracks and not even long enough to watch it at work (actually there was no-one around as my boss was on leave and my other colleague out of the office). With a new moon rising, Halloween had passed in a shocking excess of cheap and nasty ghoul and … Read More

Gratuitous Fiji shot

If this sounds very inviting, then set aside the next seven minutes and just relax. If finally got around to editing some hammock swaying/waves lapping video from Fiji into the most relaxing meditation. Imagine you’re on a tropical island (Fiji will definitely do), with or without cocktail in hand (I’m going for the cocktail) and surrender to your senses. Getting … Read More

Mother Nature’s mercy

It’s enclosing. Cocooning. Shrouded in mist, the dark landscape seems to envelop everything under a thick, dank blanket. It feels like coming home. The rain lashes and thrashes through the landscape. Sheets slash through trees, torrents tear at leaves. It’s aggressive, violent even. There’s something biblical in this fierce weather – do we need such a heavy reminder of our … 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

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

So it’s National Adoption Awareness Week and I’m proud to say I’m an Adoptive Mum. Although you can drop the adoptive and I’ll happily just be a proud mum. Our children came to us through adoption and we feel forever grateful that we get to parent them – always aware of the loss of their biological parents in not being … Read More

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

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

Gratitude and Grace

The toilet roll needs changing, again. And again, and again, and again, and again, and again. Every. Single. Time.     The clothes are lying on the bathroom floor, again. And again, and again, and again, and again. Every. Single. Time.     The shoes are left where I’ll trip over them, again. And again, and again, and again, and … Read More

You may think you need the shock of bad (or very good) news to flick the switch on a new perspective. Like a reboot for your life. Obviously very good news is always welcome – and that flood of serotonin (the happy hormone) and possibly oxytocin (the natural love drug) in your system is enough to give you a whole … Read More

10 ways to create your own yoga retreat

Reading and yoga nook

There is something pretty special about going away on a yoga retreat. I’m recently back from my annual retreat in the World Heritage listed mountain rainforest near where I’m lucky to live – two nights, barely 44 hours, but long enough to relax, refresh and rejuvenate. Bliss. From brief breaks away to week-long (or longer) retreats in exotic locales, a … Read More
