I Must Confess…I’m Full of Wisdom & Advice!

Well that was a full-on week – so busy and full-on that I only managed to publish one single post!

We had a birthday and subsequent party to organise and hold. There was lots on at work for both Nathan and myself and the usual run around for school and after school activities. Not to mention the bushfires that besieged Newcastle on Wednesday…

In the end it was just a plain old tiring and exhausting and stressful week. And I was very glad to see the back of it.

Unfortunately, we are now nearly in November and the run down to Christmas is already looking hectic. I think I’m going to just have to get used to being busy for a while yet. So while I’ll try to keep up with the blog there may be more weeks when a confession is about all you’ll get from me.

However, who knows, maybe you’ll be lucky and receive some wisdom and advice on occasion too. I’m full of wisdom and advice and history shows that I love to share it with anyone who will listen!

Advice & Wisdom ecard

Here’s some bits of wisdom and advice you can have as a freebie this week:

  • Make sure you have a bushfire survival plan. Even if you think you don’t need one. Especially if you live in the suburbs within a kilometre of any sort of bushland or reserve. Believe me, you may need it one day.
  • If you are coeliac, try to avoid glutening yourself by absentmindedly licking your fingers after making the kids’ lunches. Your bowels will not thank you for your moment of forgetfulness.
  • A car won’t just sell itself. Half-heartedly advertising it on Facebook and mentioning it in passing to your friends also won’t get you a sale. Painful as it may be, paying to advertise it may be your only option.
  • Kids at a birthday party won’t touch the fruit skewers if there is even the merest hint of chocolate or confectionery nearby. But I’m sure you didn’t need me to tell you that…

You can check out some more morsels of wisdom and advice here and here and here. But I’ve linked up a personal post today which I hope will help others along the way.

So this week, go ahead and share your posts full of wisdom and advice – I am ready to be educated!
