Sixteen years ago - I bought my very first car - and learnt to drive.
In between lessons - my dad would accompany me in my purple Nissan - so I could practice - and get better.
My dad was always very forthcoming with 'feedback'...
"No - you need to do it this way!"
"Stop riding on your break."
"You are too close" (as he gripped his seat and pressed his foot on the imaginary break!)
I listened - even though I thought my driving was awesome! Read more
With Granyma' recently passing away, it made me think...
did she do everything she dreamed of - that she wanted?
Did she live life to the fullest?
Am I fulfilling every dream?
Are you saying Yes to opportunities - even though your stomach is churning - and butterflies are doing somersaults?
Are you saying yes - despite everyone else saying no - to that 'thing' - or to you?!
My hubby and I said YES to moving to Canada - even though it was a long and frustrating process - and people said "it's just a pipe dream" Read more
Today we get our KEYS! Woohoo!
In three days - we get to move into our forever home!
New [outdoor] studio.
No more dull beige walls to stare at when I’m in thinking (ok - distracted) mode - I don’t even have a pot plant to look at!
But it’s ok - because in just a few days - not only will I potentially have a beautiful floral arrangement sat pretty on my shelves - but I will have a whole forest of trees to gaze into - as I ‘work’!
And I’m sure my work motivation will kick in once the novelty of new has gone - and it has sunk in that this is it - our dream has come true! Read more
Let’s do the ‘try before you buy’ thing!
It’s been a pretty wet summer - so far - but we’ve still had quite a few stinking HOT days!
Days I’d like to call ‘ice-cream' days - where salads and exercise go out of the window (well - sometimes, I WALK to get the ice cream) - and we indulge in a sweet, refreshing treat instead.
And the best thing about going for ice cream cones - is the sampling of every.single.flavour - just to make sure we pick the perfect one (or two) - before committing to an entire scoop!
You may not be able to make up your mind - but as soon as you taste THE one - you just KNOW!
Try before you buy! Read more
