This is the third post in a series dedicated to following the transition of my son, Gilbert Bear from a special education setting to a mainstream classroom. Part 1 documented his education settings up to now and Part 2 went over the paperwork and administrative preparation required to enable his transition into [...]
It’s Sunday again and time to join Thea from Do I Really Wanna Blog? with the Sunday Session.
This week, I’m sharing my 4 must have artists. These are my all time favourites – the cream of the crop, the 4 that I will always follow. I have all their [...]
Hi again, welcome to another week of “the whole truth and nothing but the truth”, that is I Must Confess!
This week I have taken some inspiration from last week’s confession by Shelly at Tropical Mum and have decided to bare all about my teenage infatuations.
And, despite rain induced crazy hair frizz, [...]
Early Saturday morning will see us winging our way down to Sydney International Airport for an adventure.
Gilbert Bear has been offered the opportunity to fly on a jumbo jet for the very first time through the generosity of Qantas, Turramurra Rotary Club and Pathfinders.
To say he is excited is an understatement. He had [...]
It’s Friday, again.

Sure, she is starting to assert her independence and show definite [...]
It’s Sunday Session time again with Thea over at Do I Really Wanna Blog?
This week I am taking inspiration from her Abba inspired session of last week. So, I’ll see you Abba and raise you the amazing Bee Gees!
I love their early stuff and their later stuff but [...]
Welcome to another edition of I Must Confess. This week, I am confessing some of my bad habits – only some, mind you, better leave some in reserve for another time (and let’s face, I can’t be the only one with more than a few, can I?)
Anyway, as is fast becoming tradition, I have [...]
Somehow (and I still don’t quite know how) this is post number 100 for me. It has taken me some time to get here but I’m proud to have reached this milestone. After all, this whole blogging adventure arose from a new year’s resolution. And we all know new year’s resolutions are not meant to [...]
