We were gifted a lovely package from 2Kool4Skool so that we could review and share our findings with you. I have always had a love hate relationship with school lunch boxes.  Whenever I thought I had found the right one for my kids, it either didn’t stand the test of time or didn’t turn out to be as functional as I had first thought.  Of late we have been reviewing the 2kool4skool lunch and snack stuff range and straight up I…

This is a sponsored post.   As you may well very know, I have battled with sleep this year.  It is like my nemesis.  What I have personally found helpful is to have  great sleep hygiene.   A good night’s sleep is the bedrock for a good day. It helps you focus better, helps your body recover from sickness and physical exertion, and makes you less likely to be snappy and snarky.   Many things (including children) can have a huge impact…

Yesterday I posted the above image to the MMM Instagram, Twitter and Facebook profiles.  I did so very very excited that I had found a product that had actually worked for my skin and the disgusting acne that I had been putting up with for the last 6 months had packed up camp and VANISHED. In posting this image it came to light very quickly that not only am I a joker and deviate at times … so are my…

Writing this post may seem rather odd to those that take part in Dry July. I figure however, for the most of us shit- house-uncharitable-citizens who wish not to prove they can stay dry for an entire month, knowing how to prevent a hangover or limit it to say the least is one of those essential life skills. I had written quite a few dot points to this post prior to asking the MMM Facebook gang their tricks.  So incorporated into…

Do you know what scares me the most about cancer? It is it’s ability to tear a fabulous individual from their friends and families in the prime of their life.  It makes me feel sick to the core that Husband’s grow old without their wives, children grow up with out their Dad cheering them on at their weekend sport and that best friends no longer have their kindred spirit to hang out with, do coffee and take on the world…

Online Fitness Programs – The Answer For House Bound Mums?

8 April, 2015

Today I wanted to share with you a little bit of online research I have been doing on Online Fitness Programs.  I came across one online program accidentally (Yoogaia) last week and it got me thinking about how hard I found exercising when my kids were babies and I was housebound. (By choice of course, but only because it was a mammoth task in often getting out the front door.) With the internet bringing the entire universe into our homes these days,…

I asked the MMM Facebook tribe the other day what they like to use to flavour their dishes with.  You know the go to herb, spice or sauce that is your standard repoitre to your family favourite dishes.  The one that means the only noise that is made at the dinner table is groans of enjoyment and goodness, instead of the I HATE THIS or elbowing fights. Mine is Italian Herbs.  I can put those into ANYTHING.  Except Ice Cream…

Do you race out the door  swallowing a cup of coffee and chomping on a piece of toast? If so, I used to be in this club too. The problem for me was that by mid morning I always felt really sluggish and always headed for the sweetest morning tea option I could find.   Making me feel even more sluggish by lunch time. Cue, the realisation I needed to start my day off better by eating a decent breakfast. I…

Once she had in her bag of tricks jam drops and Lil D snuck off with them making an attempt on licking the jam out of every biscuit before we found him.  Gah ! Kids.  They save the…

I am not big on sweetened drinks and thankfully neither are my kids. When summer hit with a bang these school holidays, I noticed the kids not drinking as much water.  We were away on holidays at the time and they were complaining the drinking water tasted funny.  (We have rain water at home and once you become used to that it is hard to change water) Resisting the urge to go and buy a bottle of juice or cordial…
