Willow Wednesday

with No Comments

  For a long time now, I have guarded my Willow Wednesday. Time goes too fast and this is one way for me to hang on a little longer.   To the small dimpled hands. To the smell of marmite on cheeks. To the voice following me around the house as I hang out the washing.   These times silently evaporate when our backs are turned for a moment. When we are too busy to notice. I’m choosing to fight … Read More

  || POEM ||  Time stood still. Fixated on the tiniest fairy of them all. The gentleness of a lady bird, upon her brother’s strong finger.

  || BUSINESS BLOG ||   No one talks about this stuff, so I am going to. The stuff they don’t tell you when going into business or parenthood for that matter. The stuff you find out along the way and a mentor may say down the track, “Yes, I have been there before.” The stuff that makes us stronger yet breaks our backs.

Last weekend, I accompanied my son on his first Cub outing. It was a trek up Mount Manaia to have lunch and enjoy the views. We rode out the, “are we there yet’s” and the not so quiet moans and groans until we made it to the top – a proud moment for this Mum! It took Master Eight a while to look at the view. For some time, I thought we were destined to check out the bushes and … Read More

Think about it as excitement and these feelings are actually very similar. Usually, once we have introduced ourselves, we are well on our way and can relax into our notes, sometimes it still isn’t easy and yes, it does take practice. Practice, practice, practice…  Here is … Read More
