Set your sights in 2020

Sight is a gift. (Ask anyone who doesn't have theirs and they will tell you so). To be able to see is something that we take for granted every single day. But there is a difference between having sight and seeing. You have no doubt heard the term 20/20 vision a few times already this… Continue reading Set your sights in 2020

He who holds the stars

Are you a perennial planner? A self confessed striver? Busily plotting your life to the nth degree then panicking when things take a detour? Yup me too.

Testing the barriers

Parenting. They say its the most rewarding job of your life. They remind you they don't stay small forever. They whisper don't wish the years away because they'll be gone before you know it.

They are what you speak

I am so tired of hearing the phrase 'He is a bad boy' or 'She is naughty girl' bandied around the playground or toddler group. Now, as a mother of particularly boisterous boys, who have been more than a little challenging at times, I am only too aware that sometimes our children do misbehave. But I… Continue reading They are what you speak
