Do you plan to do what you plan to do?

If you ever – ever – catch me complaining of boredom; stop, slap me, and point me in the direction of this post. Why? Because I have become a planner – but not necessarily a doer. Therefore, there is always going to be plenty things for me to be doing. I have so many things... Read more »

Why do children need to read before Kindergarten?

Today started off quite normally – cleaning up after sending the Miniatures and husband out the door to their relevant posts for the day, talking to my mum, and a little light browsing of Facebook.

Question of the day: Have you ever stolen anything?

I don’t know why, but I have never been terribly naughty. Sure, my mum would probably disagree – but I’m not talking about not cleaning my room, back chatting or… gasp; caught drinking underage. Nope. I’m talking about other sins, that deserve doing the time for the crime. To say I have never stolen anything,... Read more »
