Switching Off..

Last Friday I had a TGIF moment.. 

After a busy week I needed a break from everything and from everyone, so I turned my phone off, put Max in the car and drove to Altona Dog Beach.. 

It was exactly what I needed!

Family Lawn Bowls

Last Wednesday, after the boys sports day and after mine and Nevaehs trip to ballarat we as a family tried lawn bowls.

The idea came to me two weeks ago when we were at the library one afternoon and parked right beside the lawn bowling club in Lord Street. 

The kids had all agreed that Lawn Bowls were only for Nanas and so I challenged them to a game one day. Little did they know that one day would actually mean last Wednesday!

I would like to say a very big THANK YOU to Frank Pomeroy (Former Footballer for Geelong and North Melbourne) from the Avenue Lawn Bowling Club for teaching my children the ins and outs of Lawn Bowls this afternoon. We have had a great time 🌿

Cuddling Koala's with Nevaeh

Today, I gave Nevaeh a dayoff school.  Well technically the kids had senior sports day today, so she didn't actually miss out on any classwork.

Nevaeh was feeling pretty crappy heading into sports day because she is not athletic at all. She is hard on herself and when she came home telling me that she came last in the sports trials and her "friends" were laughing and giving her a hard time, I saw no harm in pulling her out for a one-on-one day with her Mummy!

Nevaeh chose that we go to the Ballarat Wildlife Park, but it was my idea to get up close and personal with the Humphrey the Koala!  🐨 

Here are some photos from our day together.

Jeanette's 1st ever A

What did you do to get an A?

"Okay,what I did to get an A, I did a traditional Aboriginal dance with all the animals, like the Bunjil, the eel, the emu, and the kangaroo."

How did you get an A?

"The teacher was really interested and I got the people, like the audience into it, like I got them to clap (their hands) with the sticks."

How did you feel when you got it?

"I was really really happy. I was shaking in my pants. I felt like it was going to be a good day and I was just really happy."

Who was the first person you told?

"I told Janai first, on the bus."

What would you say to others trying to achieve an A?

"Believe in yourself you can do it and try your hardest to achieve your goal."


Yesterday, after school, Jeanette burst into the front door and loud and proud announced that she had received an A in her dance class today. Her first ever A.

We are so very proud of her!!!
