Hello Monday

hello Monday is a semi-regular series, sharing goals and plans for the week ahead in the hope of embracing the coming week, not moving through with fear or trepidation.

hello hot weather

After 2 weeks of rain (which we so badly needed), the hot weather has returned as autumn is knocking on our doors. Fortunately, the real killer, humidity, has worn out her welcome as all the rain dries up. Hopefully, the weather patterns are changing, and we'll see more rain this year than the last couple of years.


hello blog writing challenge

Kylie from Kidgredients issued the challenge in a Facebook group last week to write every day for 30 days. My immediate answer was yes, but then as my brain let it sink in I was all squirmy and fighting to run away.

Special Blog Award

Many years ago, getting to know other bloggers was just what people did. They commented on posts, spoke through posts to each other, and told their families the stories as if those people they only read about were real, actual people.

Then social media exploded in our faces, and changed all of those things. We didn't interact with people the same way, we stopped writing blog posts to each other, we started hanging out and scrolling through social media every day, every hour.

Why you need to set goals for Christmas now

Inside - with just 12 weeks to Christmas, it's time to start making some goals.

It's no secret I love Christmas.
School is finished, work winds down, the streets get quiet, watching everyone open gifts is exciting, cooking tonnes of food is fun, eating the food and talking to friends is a great way to relax.

5 reasons you don't write even when you want to

I woke with a start, and turned towards the clock on the other side of the bed.


The rolling gentle snoring started, and my brain went into overdrive, wide awake now the noise was ramping up from the other side of the bed.

3 tips for eradicating the pesky mean girl in your head

Inside - If you've got a constant mean-girl voice in your head, gaslighting your every attempt to be better, then these tips will help you learn to notice her, and overcome. This article previously appeared in my newsletter.

When I upgraded my computer at the start of the month, I also moved my office from the lounge room, where I've been tucked into a corner for 12 years, to my craft room, which used to be Chloe's bedroom. I'm straddling two work spaces, with piles of stuff everywhere, including my desk, which is making it impossible to get any work done.
