Spring is
in the air – finally!

The weather is changing, and we are starting to do more “stuff”. Zac’s soccer match was cancelled, which freed up his Saturday morning for a tennis match against his uncle. I think this is the first real game he’s played outside of his weekly squad meet and 1-on-1 coaching. He loved it, and he was surprisingly good. Could have something to do with his new racquet which is more suitable to his style than the previous one. (Funny side story: Zac told me in a very serious “I’ve thought about this” voice that you need to be a top 100 tennis player worldwide if you hope to make any money out of it. I jokingly asked him if that was his plan to which he solemnly replied “Think so”. He wasn’t joking. Oh, to have the confidence of youth! Between his tennis aspirations and YouTuber dreams, this kid might not need a college fund?)

Took the kids out for a scoop of the best ice cream in town, at Aroma. Sorry, no photos. But it was Strawberry Cream for him, and Turkish Delight for her. Then came home and made real strawberries and cream. I like mine blitzed in the NutriBullet, with lots of cream and lots of sugar. I threw in some fresh blueberries, and also ate them by the handful.

Spent the afternoon fixing up this blog, and went down Twitter rabbit holes.


I have a newsletter!
It lands in your inbox on Saturdays, and is filled with fun links, stories, book and movie recommendations, my wild thoughts, a bit of pop psychology, a bit of inspo lifestyle, and a whole lot of “so this is midlife!” kind of stuff :-)

Join me in my musings and adventures as I live and love my second (and best!) chapter, together with my 2 kids and beloved dog! ❤️


I’ve started a newsletter

I will be the first one to say that there are too many newsletters in the world. My inbox is filled with emails, and I ignore most of them. Still, I am in love with the idea of writing directly to people who voluntarily signed up to receive my musings, and so … here we go: I’ve added another newsletter to the world.

Rare day out

Honestly, it’s near impossible to get this child to find some free time to spend with us. And then to get her to pose for a photo! Miracle of miracles.

Catching the rays

It’s hardly winter, but the air is getting crispier and cooler, and so Lisa looks for any ray of sunlight …and then hogs it. I’m just here to take the photos!

A Mother’s Day treat

Took myself out for a custard slice and a whipped cream cappuccino. Kids were at home, so had some peace and quiet. A win-win!

Another notebook

Maybe one day I will have enough notebooks, but to day is not the day. Isn’t this one gorgeous? It also has a glossy finish, which makes it even better. And its a blank. Perfection!
