about me

My photo
Married to Nick for 13 years, with 2 children; Sabrina - 12 and Dominic - 11. I am a girlfriend through and through in that I love girly things and anything that celebrates the essence of being a woman. I love vintage, shabby chic, the country and try my best to do my bit for the environment. SO yes...we have 3 bins in our house and try our best to recycle! I believe that with everything in life, the closer we stick to nature, the better off we'll be. I would love to have a balance in life, but have learnt that balance is not always possible, so strive for significance instead, in the hopes that that will be just as meaningful, and the rest will hopefully follow.

Priorities and purpose

There has been so much on the go this first term, that I have felt so much like this picture...confused at times between whether I'm playing in pink wellies, or stepping out in stilletos.
The wellies are my family, friends, home, and causes that I give my time to, because I LOVE and I feel they define my purpose - my heels represent the part of my life that require structure, order and focus to run a successful business... 
There are times lately, when I have had one on each foot, whilst thinking I was wearing a PAIR.  You know those moments when you are so confused, you're not sure which hat you're wearing?? - mothers can so relate.  By last night, the stress and the strain of trying to do it all was telling.....hmmmm.....
SO this week I'm going to have to say no to some of the places and things my HEART DESIRE, to once again FOCUS MY HEAD, and find calm and peace again in this little life of mine.

It's so hard to say no, but saying no to one thing means saying YES to another doesn't it???....


  1. GF....two words....SLOW DOWN...it is worth it I PROMISE!!!!!

  2. more is nog n dag skattie - chill - smell the roses - listen to the rain - laugh loudly and hug for ages
