Flashback Friday: My Twin Boys

I love this photograph of my boys holding hands at the beach when they were little.  Such sweet innocents they were then.  The world was one big wonder!  This was taken at a holiday at Caloundra.  I think it was taken around January 1996. They loved the beach […]

Flashback Friday: 1995

The 3rd of May is a very special day.  It’s my mother’s birthday.  In 1995 on the 3rd of May (mum’s birthday!) my mum and dad come over to our place to look after our two-year old twin boys while I went to hospital to give birth to […]

365 Grateful – Day 167

365 Grateful – Day 149

Last week my daughter (MissM) had an interview at a local coffee/cake shop for a casual part-time job.  Today she went off for a 2 hour trial.  Tomorrow she hears whether she gets the job or not.  There are at least two of them that got to the […]
