Date, Oat & Coconut Choc Balls (nut free)

2014 Health Challenge: Week 7 – A Dress

I haven’t worn this dress in years! Year! So it felt awesome to wear it the other day. Whoo hoo!  In the recent years, I’ve made small sustainable changes to the way I think, eat and move.  Following on from that, at the start of this year, I started a challenge with my group PT [...]

Mini Nutella Cupcakes: 3 Ingredients

Decorating Eggs: With a Temporary Tattoo

Pony in a Jar: Party Favour

Travel Dice

You learn these little hacks from experience, others along the path and from necessity. As campers, we find it works brilliantly to keep dice in a small clear container. This idea is great for home too.  Another tip: if you don’t like the sound of the dice in the container, you can get rubber dice [...]

Fun (non-tech) Ways to Keep Kids Occupied While Waiting

It’s from my favourite Dr Suess Book. There’s something about the rhythm of this page about waiting that has always struck me.  There’s anticipation in it. Waiting for a train to go or a bus to come, or a plane to go or the mail to come, or the rain to go or the phone [...]
