Support Local Living

Are you fed up of large corporations taking over and everything looking the same? I know I am. This blog shares a year in the life of a local family, supporting local living and local businesses.

Mothers Day

Well Mother’s day has been and gone.

It’s that one day of the year where Mothers can enjoy a sleep in and breakfast in bed (although I don’t think anyone told little Miss 2 that was the case).

The weather was beautiful across the weekend, and would have been perfect for outdoors Mother’s day. The Cleveland markets where thriving with people on Sunday morning, all taking mum out for breakfast, coffee and a walk around the markets.

Now I am fully into party prep mode, with little Mr 3 turning 4 this weekend, and Mr 9 turning 10 in a couple of weeks.

When did kids parties become such a big deal? Gone are the days of simple pass the parcel and a simple balloon tied to the mail box. These days it’s live reptile shows, themed decorations and large 3D cakes…

Winter is coming…

I have definitely noticed that the days and nights are getting much cooler….

 Ok, so it’s not that cold, and it won’t get that cold here in sunny Queensland, but you can definitely feel the change of season.

Other than all of the standard coughs and colds that come with the change of weather, life still runs like normal. And that means finding ways to keep 3 children active and entertained.

Whilst it is still lovely weather to go to the park during the day, the late afternoons and evenings are cooling quite quickly.

What do you like to get up to in the cooler  months? Are there some activities or places to visit that are best done through the winter?

I would love your input,

Sam x
