New year, new start. So I started this year right (well actually I ended 2019 having started right - if that makes sense at all). It all started with leather cushions in the living room that was REALLY past their prime. I finally convinced hubby that it was the perfect time to replace it. Honestly,… Continue reading Extreme Makeover: Trudie Edition
I know, I know, you all thought I have disappeared off the face of the earth. Lost the address to my own blog. Forgot that I had people following the blog. Not true, but unfortunately I have no good excuse for disappearing for so long. Other than the fact that I had nothing to write… Continue reading Being Pig-Headed

My words of the year are 'Letting Go'. What do I need to let go of? For starters, my comfort zone. And apparently I'm not alone. I just spoke to someone who lost his job and his words were "I think it's time for something new, out of my comfort zone." How do you do… Continue reading Letting Go
Dear teaching career, It’s over. After 32 years I’ve decided to leave. It’s not me or the children. It’s you. When we began our relationship in 1986, you gave me the freedom to choose what I taught and when I taught it. I loved that creativity and flexibility. After working hard on the “basics” in… Continue reading ‘Dear teaching, it’s not me, it’s you’
Dear Diary Thursday, 21st March Did I stick to my meal plan this week? YES! Proud of myself. Even when we ate at a restaurant - I ordered a salad! Whoop, whoop! Did I go to the gym this week, or did any sort of exercise? Sadly No. But in my defense between loadshedding -… Continue reading My Fat Loss Journey – 21/03/2019
