How many computers do you have in your house? We have one PC and one IPAD and frankly I don’t think it is anywhere near enough. It appears that a blogging mum and two kids (one in high school and one in last year of primary) puts an impossible demand on the one, sad computer… Read more »

OK you can stop checking your calendars even with the time difference to Australia we are well passed Monday (it’s actually Wednesday). However computer issues have stopped me posting since Friday, finally back on track today. I had planned to write a highly entertaining, creative post to welcome myself back to the online world but… Read more »
Our entry in the weekly photo challenge. Flipper merges with the competition. A dolphin joins in the fun of the NSW Longboard State Titles off Lighthouse Beach, Port Macquarie as competitor, Jennifer Arnold, rides a wave.
It is clear that for 90 per cent of the time I’m flying blind with this parenting gig.
