I have about 5 shows a week that I make an effort to watch. Most weeks I forget, so in the comfort of my bed – late on a Saturday night with my Ipad propped up on a pillow – I try to catch up. A cup of tea and a silent home. Bliss. One […]

The challenge of parenting is the difficulty in seeing how today shapes the future. A few weeks back I took my kids with me to the physio. I had a sports injury (how cool!) and while the lovely young man was fixing my foot my daughter said to him ‘do you know I have two […]

  Yesterday I published the first half of an interview with Denyse from Denyse Whelan. Life stories.┬áJump back and read it if you missed it. Here is the second half of the interview and the story of a great love.   How are you and your husband navigating the journey together as you grow older? […]

Denyse isnt what I pictured as the typical social media savvy woman when I started writing online. She’s a grandma, a retired principal and a passionate educational advocate.

(How amazing is this shot my husband took while we were away!) My husband and I managed to escape for 40 fun filled hours this week. While the kids were happily driving my mum bonkers we jumped on a plane, ate long leisurely breakfasts, went shopping, danced at a wedding, slept in a gigantic bed, […]
