Too Exhausted to Cook? Try Eatnow.com.au

Eatnow.com.au

This post was written in collaboration with Eatnow.com.au I really enjoy cooking, but some days the idea of cooking a meal is just all too much. My hubby likes to cook, so on those days he often happily cooks the dinner while I stare into space like a zombie after a day of chaos with the kids. On the days where we are both just too wiped out to … [Read more...]

Truth, Lies & the Serial Podcast

Serial podcast

I have been pondering truth a lot lately, and how often people bend the truth (or deliberately lie). I know people have their reasons for telling lies, but as fairly honest person I sometimes find it hard to understand.  Don't get me wrong, I am not completely innocent in this area. While I almost never tell a complete lie, but I do bend the truth … [Read more...]

The Christmas Tree Truck

The Christmas Tree Truck

Ever since I was a child, we have always had a real Christmas tree. While I can see the benefits of a plastic tree, it just isn't Christmas (for me) without a real tree.

Never Say Never!

Never say never

It started off as a bit of a joke that every time I said I was never going to do something, it seemed to happen. However as I think about my life, especially my life since I have become a Christian (when I was 18) it is very clear that saying I will never do something....and even thinking I will never do something, is a personal challenge to God. … [Read more...]

Why I am So Quiet at the Moment….

Our house

It's been weeks since I last wrote a blog post. It has been super quiet here on the blog, but life certainly isn't quiet and I wanted to share with you what's been going on. The slightly boring part was that I got really busy with Uni. For those who don't know, I am studying Clinical Psychology....part-time and super slowly. I love it but when … [Read more...]

Baked Pumpkin Risotto {Recipe}

Baked Pumpkin Risotto

This baked pumpkin risotto recipe is a family favourite at our place. It is one of those meals that the kids actually like, and is really easy to make. It also has the added bonus of getting the kids to eat vegetables, and leaves very little washing up. I also like it as it means I can pretend I didn't forget to get meat out of the freezer -sorry … [Read more...]
