In the words of another…

…as to why I have not written a blog post recently, and a much needed re-prompt to myself. I have mentioned in the past that I am a bit of a fan of Annabel Langbein, and earlier this year there was an article about her in the NZ Women’s Weekly. It resonated strongly, and I…

Always leave work on time

How I imagined my life would be after finishing ‘the big job’ and how it is now are not in full synchronicity. I think this is why quite a lot of ‘always leave the office on time’ resonated with me. I was really good in how I went about what I did with my time…

Bad Mum (and Dad)

Nothing like candlelight

If you happened to have read my previous post you will know that I am trying to find some needed balance in my life, a state of being I hope to reach sooner rather later (or heaven forbid too late!). In the midst of one of those days I came home to the delivery of…
