Gracing The Airways and Unruly Brows.

4 June, 2014
20140604-234934-85774826.jpg

I am pretty pleased tonight that the airways are just that.  The airways.  Not able to be seen, just heard. I say this because, today I was on ABC 612 Radio Parenting Panel and tonight it came to my attention that I had the scariest eye brows I have notably worn in quite some time. Thankfully, anyone that may of noticed didn’t mention it.  Not even Mr MMM, who had an overwhelming gush of proud as he and Lil D dropped…

Pam’s Law Of Assertion by Mrs MMM

29 May, 2014
Untitled design-4

There is a very fine line between being assertive and becoming aggressive. It is one that some dance along beautifully and others fail miserably. By going in gently to a difficult situation, you risk being earmarked as passive and then promptly walked all over. By going in hard and fast, you’re sure to offend and possibly be viewed as being aggressive. This is where skill, tactic and a little practice plays a part. I once worked with a lovely lady that could…

Feeling Unworthy

13 May, 2014
20140513-224227.jpg

I never intended to write this piece for Wonder Woman Wednesday, because I had no intention of feeling like this tonight.  Or today.  Or yesterday for that matter. But I do.  Unworthy that is. I am feeling unworthy of all the goodness I have in my life, when I cannot seem to balance the work/family shindig. Since getting home at 5.30pm this afternoon, I have done the following. 3 x afternoon snacks (cause all minors were roving hungry) 2 x…

The Best Gift I Ever Gave Myself by Lisa Hatherly

7 May, 2014
20140507-224445.jpg

For the first time in a long time, I gave myself a wonderful gift. Don’t get me wrong – I am no stranger to retail therapy and attempting to make things better with a new handbag/pair of earrings/lipstick/shoes (the list is endless and so are my collections of stuff).  But I am talking about a gift with soul. Something you give someone that really connects with their spirit – lifts them up and has them thinking “I didn’t know I…

The May 1hr Challenge

Add text-3

Where did April go? What did I do for myself? meh. Nothing much.  I didn’t even have the time to cram in a hairdressers appointment, let alone sort the disgusting polish on my toes. I give give give and with a change in work hours coming up, I will be giving more so that I can be home to work on Miss M’s behavioural optometry therapy earlier in the afternoons. This will mean unfortunately starting work at 6am.  In winter.  In…

Being You ~ Authenticity & All That Jazz

29 April, 2014
20140429-235137.jpg

It is pretty late for me to still be up writing but this is what happens when inspiration hits as you tuck your toes under the doona. If I look to my right, beside my bed I see a basket of my clean clothes I need to put away, shoes, folders and just general mess. Not the all togetherness tidiness you may think I have when you look through my little looking glass that is my blog. My house is…

6 Fab Fitness Tips For Mum’s by Mel Stewart

6 Fab FitnessTips For Mum's-2

I was so nervous and excited all at the same time when Gayel asked me to contribute to her blog on how I manage to schedule  fitness into my busy lifestyle. I don’t think it matters whether you have one child or a bus load – Mum’s are busy. It’s no secret – being a fit and healthy is hard. If it was easy, we would all be doing working out, all the time and boy we would look goooooooooood. But the…

I am Lost, I Have No Idea At All by Guest Writer Rachel Peters

16 April, 2014
Untitled design-7

I have no idea on what I am doing.  None.  I know it seems on the surface I have a handle on this but the reality is far from that. When you have children there is no written manual on how you should raise them but there are plenty of self help books and articles that can lead you in the general direction.  But what’s even worse is when you go through a divorce and you get re-married, throw in…

Slow Your Pace My Lady – Wonder Woman Wednesday

9 April, 2014

  If you asked me this question : How do you do it all Mrs MMM? My reply would be :  I love being busy.  I love knowing I have something to do next.  I  thrive on chaos. This is my verbatim over and over. In truth I resent the chaos.  I know that my inner belief of ‘not feeling enough’ is my drive behind the chaos I create  and it is also the one thing I hate the most…

Through Dark Days: A personal story of pregnancy, twins and postnatal depression By Bec Lines

2 April, 2014
BecandBabies

“I knew it! I knew it! I knew it!”  I squealed at the ultrasound technician when he informed us at our 10 week scan that I was pregnant with twins.  My husband was dumbfounded and the ultrasound technician was a little surprised by unusual reaction.   How did I know?  I am not entirely sure, call it sixth sense or a woman’s intuition but I had a feeling very early on in this pregnancy that I was expecting twins.  I…

As I was making school treats late one Sunday afternoon, it occurred to me that, yet again, the weekend had passed and I hadn’t left the house (grocery shopping doesn’t count.) Remembering to take care of yourself can be hard when you’re in the throes of babies and nappies and money troubles and temporary-single-mummyhood, so I let my mind drift, and came up with five things I could do in the coming week to help me feel better   1…

The Day My Husband Turned By Amanda From Diary Of A Mad Cow

12 March, 2014
20130308-184004.jpg

I was fortunate enough – excuse the forthcoming cliché  – to marry my best friend. He had, quite literally, although I didn’t know it at the time, rescued me. My knight in shining armour; although it was chef’s whites and far more subtle than racing in on horseback, wielding a sword and slaying dragons. He was – and is – funny, caring, compassionate and just amazing. We followed the socially acceptable and expected path; a few years of courting, a…

Have you ever planned a holiday to some exotic location? Your tickets are booked. You’re busily reading everything you can get your hands on about your dream destination. You daydream. You fantasize. You imagine what it will be like to be somewhere you’ve never been before – to hear a different language, make an attempt to speak the language, to try different food and to experience a different culture. You’ve talked to your friends who been there before you and…
