When I shared this setting last year, people gasped and said, “How could you take all that glass outside!” and “Oh, I would never do that with kids because they would break everything!” Well, let me tell you, all the tableware, including the clear pieces are ALL plastic, and it all fits in a few […]

Christmas Wish List Printable (Want-Need-Wear-Read)

Brought to you by Nuffnang and BIG W There’s a BIG W close to where my kids go to school. It’s handy having it there because I can duck in before/after I pick up the kids from school to do a spot of Christmas shopping. One thing I’ve learned about Christmas shopping is I have to make […]

Four Ways to Discover Your Family Home Style

Does a sense of frustration wash over you when you glance around your home?   Your home should be a true reflection of you and the ones you love, but sometimes the practicalities of family life can simply take over. Many mums can fall into the trap of thinking “I’ll decorate when the kids grow up”. […]

Life-Sized Gingerbread House

Three years ago I made an EPIC mess in the kitchen trying (and failing) to make a gingerbread house. It was so, so, so, so hard. I was frustrated. And I vowed to NEVER AGAIN make one from scratch. Three years on, and I still haven’t. I positioned the camera very carefully to hide some of […]

Do You Want to Build a (Box) Snowman?

It wasn’t planned, but we seem to be decorating our home with a real winter theme this Christmas.

Low Care Pot Plant for the Front Door

I really adore a lush pot plant situated at the front door, it always makes me smile. However, my many attempts to create a similar oasis have been a dismal failure. But I know why I fail, I simply forget to water. It’ s that old saying ‘Out of sight, out of mind’, being situated […]

Dubai Safari

This Bloggerati Getaway is proudly sponsored by Dubai Tourism I looked out to an ocean of sand with rippled waves of rolling dunes. Sky and sand: everywhere. The terrain was spotted with the odd scrub or two. On one side of me, I watched the sun slip down, and in its wake, coloured light spread […]

Look Up: Dubai Skyline

When I travel to different places in the world, I look at the skyline. I think you can tell a lot about a place from looking up. I did it in India, and in Laos, and now I’m here in Dubai. In the week I’ve been in Dubai, I’ve experienced so much it’s mind boggling! Last […]

How to be Dad, When I’m Hardly There
