"She meticulously organised her things.. 
colours with matching colours, similar shoes 
with similar shoes.. scarves neatly hung on a 
special scarf rack... everything all in it's place"

I love that feeling of organisation, I only entered organised wardrobe nirvana last year though.  Before that, it was a mishmash of bits and pieces and mostly a mess.  Don't get me wrong, I'm not a vacuous person, obsessed with outward appearances.. my insides are much more important to me and more developed than my preoccupation with my outsides would indicate - but I discovered last year that more than just how I look, fashion is FUN.


Amy Tries Again

Bored?  On the bus without a book?  
Smartphone-less?  Fear not.  
These are a few of my favourite things 
to think about when I am forced to sit 
and wait anywhere for an extended 
period of time.

"Today is the beginning of the rest of my life".

Always loved that quote.  It seems so applicable to me.  

For years I looked after my two disabled children, then 
when they were finally grown, my husband got sick.  
Not that I resented any of this, but it did place limitations
on my life.  Now, my husband is gone and I am at home 
with my son for company.  I am so blessed to have two 
children who have turned into well-rounded individuals.

Welcome to Avon Central Coast

My intention is to share my Avon experience 
with those who would like to know more about 
the Avon Business.

What it can do for you and your family. 
Avon has been supporting women in business 
for almost 125 years.

Not many businesses can say that in this day and age.

Fitter By Friday

I must be fiitter than I was last Friday as I have walked 
more than I did last week but I need some way of 
measuring my fitness levels. 


Outback Tania

We live in the mid north of the state of South Australia where our climate is dry and hot. We have a 1ha(2.5 acres)
piece of Australia just outside of town and keep chooks, try to maintain a vegie garden and live the simple life.


Our Life and Other Stuff

We are a family of seven. My husband and I have been married for 26 years, sharing the house with three of the children, two dogs and a cat. Things are changing as children leave home and we're kind of excited about the next step of the journey.

Saturday Morning Musings

I'm a 40 something working mum with 2 gorgeous boys (well they're men now but they will always be boys to me) and an equally gorgeous husband who loves and supports  me unconditionally (even if he silently thinks I'm a little nuts). I have many interest including craft, reading, cooking, being frugal and making my house a home. I hope you enjoy my blog.

A Frugal Life Down Under

I'm a 40ish Mum (Jane)of an almost 9 year old girl (TootToot). I have been married to the same wonderful man (Guitar Man) for so long I can't count the years on my hands and feet. 
I am on a journey to an increasingly thrifty lifestyle. Thank goodness my family are happy to journey with me.
So, shall we journey together you and I?
