About me

the things you love ARE the things that really need to get done… as women, not just mothers, we all have a tendency, for whatever reason, to put “everything else” before our own needs and wants, but sometimes the only way to get through the day is to put “everything else” in a big pile, ignore it, and get on with doing what WE want to do {read more}

Hi, I'm Cate, and this is my life behind the purple door.

I'm a stay-at-home mum to Chloe, Douglas, Natalie, Riley + Sophie.

In 2015, I'm trying to be BRAVE and share my knowledge - of blogging and of life. As the kids are getting older, I'm starting to think about what I want to be when I grow up, and what that looks like for my family.

Of all the things I have been interested in doing over the last few years, scrapbooking has stuck the longest - even when I thought my passions were changing, they came back to my first love. I want to find space to scrapbook again, whether that's layouts, or Project Life™, or a mix of both.

I struggle with housework, and never did finish The Organised Housewife's 20 day challenge, and one day when our finances are stable again, we'll finish off all our grand plans for our house.

I recently took an online personality test that said my #1 character strength was life-long learning. I'd like to make that true, and actually finish a class that I start!

Thank you for taking the time to drop by my blog. I love reading comments from visitors, thank you for sharing your thoughts.
