Life Lately; Autumn

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

It’s Rodeo time! The Mullewa Muster & Rodeo is on again

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

It’s National Volunteer week!

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!

Farm Wife Life; but what about the kids?

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!

How to get things done when you have a toddler; my tips for sanity

 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
