All Is Revealed

I’d love to write to you today about how much I love my kids. And I do. The moment I saw my first-born my heart broke into shards, and I felt like it would never be put back together. I discovered this unfailing love where my heart ached and burst from loving. It hit me … Continue reading All Is Revealed

Christmas Soft Dolls For All The Kiddos…

For Christmas this year, I made these dolls for the five little kidlets of my nieces and nephews. They are quite sweet. Not perfect. But sweet none-the-less. Now down to details: I used this pattern from BlackApple (Etsy & Blog) UPDATE 2016: I no longer use this pattern as I have made up my own. Took … Continue reading Christmas Soft Dolls For All The Kiddos…

And So With The Sunshine…

Today I was going to blog my recipe for a healthy  …well… an almost healthy Honey and Vanilla Cheesecake. The first time I made it (about two years ago), it was awesome! Pure awesome! Totes AMAZEBALLS (as my trying-to-be-cool-and-slightly-funny husband would say)! I wrote down the recipe as I was making it, and it was so delicious … Continue reading And So With The Sunshine…

A New Year, A New Cleaning Schedule.

So as we have already discussed, I am a bit of a cleaner. And being the end of 2014, it is time to look at my cleaning schedule for the next year.

Well – Hello there lovely!

It’s late on a Saturday night here. I’ve been sitting here trying to get this darn blog looking perfect. Of course, it isn’t perfect, not by my standards anyway, but that seems to be the theme of this blog (and my life) isn’t it? The not perfect. The idea is to stop striving for the … Continue reading Well – Hello there lovely!

Burnt Potato Chips and Monday Made It Madness

First of all, let me apologise for not putting up this blog yesterday. My husband had to use my computer last night and I completely forgot that I had half finished blog just sitting here.

New Market Finds: Pipsqueaks Market Review and Businesses I loved.

One of the wonderful things I love about Julilah only doing markets in the latter half of every year is that I get to spend the first half of the year going to markets and enjoying them without my “Julilah” hat on.  On Sunday I went to a brand new market in my local area. … Continue reading New Market Finds: Pipsqueaks Market Review and Businesses I loved.


How did you spend ANZAC Day? I spent the day with my family and feeling ever so humbled. I woke up to the sound of my two year old waking up his sister at the Ungodly hour of 5:30am, and with a sigh I got up, knowing that I would have no chance at all … Continue reading ANZAC Day
