Being married to an “all in” kinda guy – it’s not what you think……

Every time I think about writing about being Tim’s wife and what we do, I honestly sit and have a debate about how much do I share and what do I keep private. You know? It’s this toss up between being too familiar and private or too much information or should I share a lot more? I have this debate because as much as I love to write and record what my thoughts are and what’s happening – it’s not just my life here, it’s Tims’, my kids and those closest to us.

#RockingMotherhood – putting the mirror up & having a good look 


This last school holiday week has been insane! I can’t even explain to you how much I have messed up, forgotten and apologized. It’s been unnerving and I felt like I was coming undone. Thus the pic-Jude crying, me tired 🤦🏽‍♀️. It was completely unlike me and the situations weren’t even that hectic, but it was still enough to leave me sitting in a pool of self pity, with cups of tea trying to pull myself towards myself.
