Continue reading F@%K Hospital Corners – Just Make the Darn Bed: How Choice Influences Self-Respect.
Yesterday was 22 years since Andrew and I tied the not. I thought, back then, that I knew what love looked like. What it felt like and how to be loving. Boy, was I so naive! It was all those things but so much more than I can even now put into words. Continue reading 3 Keys 22 Years of Marriage Has Taught Me
Okay, so I am a little buzzed right now. Nothing life changing happened. I didn’t have some grand epiphany either. But I have been doing something in the past couple of weeks that has been slowly but surely shifting my thinking and giving me an energy I didn’t know I could have. You ready for it?

Just over two weeks ago I flew from Sydney to Paris, caught the fast train to Bordeaux and spent the next 12 days in one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

Hey Dad, It’s been a while. So much has happened and I’m not too sure where to start. I became a writer – did I tell you that? Yeah, I know, you already knew that this was what I was supposed to do, but it just took a while for me to find it. The family is well – your lads are taller than you … Continue reading Hey Dad, it’s been a while…
So it’s now just 15 days until Christmas, 2015. For the past week and a bit I have been writing about the things in life that I am most grateful about but today I felt like it was time to say something about the people I’ve been doing life with. Because what is a life of gratitude if it does not give homage to the … Continue reading Gratitude Day 9 – These People
So today’s blog is a bit different. I’ve been asked to share a new recipe I made up today for Paleo Frittata Muffins. I can’t claim the full idea as my own as I got it from another website but I will share the version I created to match our family tastes 🙂 Continue reading Choosing a better way
