You want too much peace Mum!

Peace through yoga and sometimes wine

Could there be such a thing? Too much peace! According to Miss Yin, 9, I’m a hog for serenity, a glutton for calm, even if the peace I crave is not exactly the noble end-to-all-wars variety. (of course I do wish for that, but my immediate needs are much closer to home). I’d sell my soul (and throw in the kids) … Read More

Do you hold onto your fears like a security blanket?

Baby sleeping

Miss Yin, now a big nine-year-old, has cherished her blankie since she was a baby, or more particularly, since we gave it to her on the day we adopted her, when she was almost 13 months old. She clung onto it for dear life. She snuggled into it for warmth, for softness, a sense of comfort, security – like all … Read More

My tunnel of love

Sometimes it feels like there’s not much light at the end of the tunnel – but mostly it’s lovely!

What if you could be the ‘you’ in photographs?

You know smiling, happy, presentable (well mostly). From posed portraits that portray you at your best (supposedly), to glamour photos that make you look even better (I’ve never actually had a true glam shot, but I hope I’d look better). Then there are family photos that freeze rich and rare memories for posterity, holiday images that transform you back in … Read More

Yin and yang – watch your speed!

Speed limit

The brake, or the accelerator – which is best? Well both (or either actually) in the right situation! Do you ever feel like the world is passing you by? Are things moving way too fast? Are you stuck in the slow-lane? OR Is the fast-forward button permanently pressed down? Do you wonder where the days have gone? Do you worry … Read More

A recipe for balance (and you don’t have to be a Masterchef)

Yum dim sum

Celebrity and reality cooking shows are ‘an absolute phenomena’ in Australia (that’s if you ask the commercial television networks) – not so sure about elsewhere. The country where cuisine once comprised a meat pie washed down with a cold beer has gone all culinary, cordon bleu, a la carte, epicurean, gourmet, gastronomic and glutinous (no actually that last adjective just … Read More

Might as well jump (or handstand, or cartwheel)

Might as well jump into life

How often do we jump as adults, or swing, or hang upside down, do a handstand, even cartwheel? So how seldom do we squeal, giddy with excitement, or experience our stomach in our mouth, without fear, just with that funny feeling of butterflies flitting joyfully around our insides? And how rarely do we feel as though we might fly, actually … Read More

Open your eyes to change

Little kids are funny – you know how when they don’t want something to be how it is they simply put their hands over their eyes to block it out: ‘What I can’t see won’t hurt me’.  As they get older they realise the can actually close their eyes – more effective in blocking out your view of life, if … Read More

Bad hair and fashion

Sometimes we are so scared of change. You’d think it was a four letter word (FEAR). But when you check out the hairstyles and fashion I used to think were so stylish, its easy to see how change is just so very necessary! And it’s OK to laugh at this collection of clips from my days of TV and video presenting. Those … Read More

Balancing the baggage

Goodbye Canada

Is it time to travel light through life? Last year, when we travelled to Canada to live for twelve months with our two adopted kids in tow, you can imagine we carried lots of baggage. Life is seldom a straightforward journey, especially as far as infertility and adoption are concerned.
