I could never understand why I didn't finish this picture, because it always felt unfinished, like much of what I put my hand to. But now that I see it here I realise that there is a really good reason - I am not yet finished.
I realised today that there are times when I binge on fiction novels, or at least books in general and today I finished Insurgent, book number 2 in the Divergent Series by Veronica Roth. Gosh I just love her work! When I finished it though I went from feeling relaxed and happy to enjoy a … Continue reading Gratitude Day 6 – The mind is a curious thing
I'm posting late tonight as I genuinely forgot about it earlier in the day and have just returned from a drive to Sydney and back to pick up the hubster from his work. The trains would have had him returning home close to midnight, and with a turn around starting at 5am tomorrow, this seemed … Continue reading Gratitude Day 5 – We do live in a blessed country after all
Today I've been thinking about flexibility. No, not the gymnastic kind. Even though I am short enough for the sport, I remember watching open mouthed as my son's girlfriend, who is a dancer, casually pulled her leg up into the air so that her ankle was positioned next to her cheek.

There was a time in my life when I would have brushed this idea aside and rushed forward anyway, forgetting about what everyone else needed from me, forgetting time itself and therefore the need to be organised, provide food, be a good mum, etc.
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 🙂
Today has been hard. Not 'can't get out of bed and face the world hard' but hard all the same. More like 'Remember to breathe, Miriam' hard: the kind where you have to send yourself little messages all day to keep calm, not let small things upset you and remind yourself that this is not … Continue reading A life lived or a life that just exists?
I've come to the realisation that until I can chose for me, I won't be able to fully help those around me, so today I chose. I chose me first even though my choice is informed by both the needs of my family, my business goals, my creative work and has a direct impact on my health.
