It’s ‘book week’ in Australia this week, and while I am forever grateful that our school doesn’t do a ‘dress-up like your favorite book character parade’ (thank goodness I don’t have to create a mouse costume and an elf troll costume!) it is a nice little reminder about how magical books and reading are. I […]
“Mum… will you show me how to draw those circle things?” “Do you mean mandalas?” “Yeah… those nice circle pattern things.” I try not to draw things for my kids. I want them to feel confident to give things a go. I want them to value their creative efforts even if they don’t look ‘real’ […]

Or shrink them down and print them onto cards and share the joy. Check […]
I think I am done with my Christmas shopping…. hopefully… maybe. We still have a few hand made gifts to finish off but I don’t think I need to go near another shopping centre (well except for food) till after Christmas. So now that the gift are all organised I need to wrap them. This […]
