What have you been up to? I’ve been busy. Really, really busy. I know that’s really not much different to usual, but I have pictures to show you for once, so here it is, what I’ve been doing with my time lately. Continue reading
Every year on the Western Australia Day long weekend the rodeo comes to Mullewa. We have been a part of this since its inception, and while a few things have changed (kids added and grown, roles added and changed), the fact remains this is one of the craziest times of year for our family. It’s a weekend of fun and laughter, chaos and stress, but once its over we all feel so proud to have helped make it a reality. Continue reading
I live a crazy- busy life and have a mind like a sieve, which means I am also a list writer and prolific planner and diary user. I have tried out a pretty broad range of diaries and planners, but was never able to find one that really worked for me, until I bought an Erin Condren Life Planner. I’ve talked about them a few times (this thing seriously saves my sanity!) and have had a few questions about what I use, so I thought I’d do a quick review and tell you a bit about why I love mine so darn much.
It feels like an awfully long time ago that we moved to Mullewa, it was harvest, I was pregnant and we lived in an old, run down farm house 32km on the East side of town. It was hot, dry, and so beautiful I fell in love. Apart from moving to a different farm (this time closer to the coast, yay!), and now having 3 kids not much has changed. I still love the country we live in- the red loam soil, the way it takes only the slightest rain for everything to turn green and pretty, and the community we live amongst is still as strong and vibrant as ever.

It’s not easy to write the less than perfect parts of life, and while I’d love to pretend I’m 100% on top of everything, that’s sadly not the case!
This week is the week we all get the chance to recognise the volunteers that make where we live a better place! Volunteering is something that absolutely everyone can do, it doesn’t have to be a big thing, in fact often the little things can make the biggest difference!
Living on a farm is pretty amazing, but I put a call out to my lovely Instagram friends the other day, asking if they had any questions about rural and regional life, and I received a few really great questions. Kelly from Be a Fun Mum asked me about how we foster opportunities for kids with what are sometimes limited resources, which is so relevant to our current life that I couldn’t help but jump on here and answer!

Hi everyone!! I thought in between the motherhood posts, I’d give you a little update on what the family has been up to. Continue reading
Dear busy Mum, yes you the one that just rushed in through the school gate with a toddler in tow and a harried look on your face (like I did yesterday), I just wanted to let you know you are doing a great job. Continue reading
Anyone who has a toddler will know how impossible it is to get almost anything done without it being undone right behind you, or having to stop what you are doing because you notice said toddler dancing on the dining room table and you have to rescue him (not that I know for experience…) Continue reading
