Miscellany #1: Girl Not Gone

I am still here.           I don’t really know what else to say. This year has been a crazy ride. New job for the hubster. Baby into kindy. Ankle surgery. Recovery. New full time job for me. Parents moving away. More parents leaving. Friends changing. Friends NOT changing. New car. New fridge. Old typewriter. New skills. Life. It has been a year we won’t be forgetting in a hurry. I thought I would put out a {Read More}

Deep Sunday – Photographing Rabbits

Photographing Rabbits

There was a morning a few weeks ago where I found myself sitting at our dining table looking out at our ‘hill’. Our house is built into the side of a hill, so from most rooms of the house we have wonderful views of trees and the mountainside. I was siting with my cup of tea, looking out at the swooshing leaves and towering trees when movement caught my eye. Into my view hopped a magnificent rabbit. It was not {Read More}

What am I about: What gives me energy?

Energy Quote - Clarity Challenge

  Energy… This is something that seems to ebb and flow isn’t it? Sometimes energy is high and life is buoyant and fun and things get kicked off the to do list. When energy is low, things go down hill fast, things start piling up and the to do list gets longer and longer. It is good to be reminded about what things gives me energy, so that I can top up on those things that add zest to my {Read More}

What am I about: What are my passions?

Passions

  I have been feeling really challenged lately to start taking myself seriously. I have a way of fobbing off praise and I have a way of downplaying what I do, thinking that everyone does the things I do. I have always been taught that the highest aspiration for us all is to be ‘normal.’ I have always struggled with this notion that I would have to try to ‘be normal,’ is it even a thing? In the challenge to {Read More}

What am I about: What expertise and skills do I have?

Expertise Quote

Okay… so today I am meant to write about what I am good at. Let me preface by saying that I am not good at doing THIS! I am good at telling you what I am NOT good at… Sigh. Okay… So… Cooking: This is kind of my super skill. I love cooking. It is often my way of bringing good into the world. I like to cook for others. I am kind of like Fast Eddy mixed with Nigella {Read More}

What am I about: What experiences (good and bad) have I had?

Experiences - Good & Bad

I am in the middle of a ‘Clarity Challenge’ here at bbbeingcool. I began with some honesty. Then I shared about what I am interested in.   My blogging path has had its highs and lows and its doldrums and stormy seas. All of these things have been mirrored by my real life. The past two years have been two of the toughest years of my life. Loneliness, illness, directionless, big things bubbling away in the background to do with {Read More}

What am I about: What interests do I have?

Interests - Julia Childs

I explained yesterday how I have lost a bit of focus when it comes to my blog. I am doing a little ‘Clarity Challenge’ that I have set myself, I was prompted to do this by questions posed by this blog post by Darren Rowse, the Problogger. Today, I am exploring what my interests are… Here we go… Family: I adore my family. My Mr Cool and our three kids are my all. We are really ¬†passionate about having kids {Read More}

What am I about: Begin with honesty…

Clarity - Anais Nin

  I have something to share with you. I am a bit nervous about sharing it but it has gotten to the point where it is unavoidable. My blog is not working. It is working ‘mechanically’ speaking. But… to me, it is just not working. I have not been writing as much lately, and that is because there has been so much happening in my Real Life that I have just been pre-occupied. Not busy, I am trying to get {Read More}

Weekly Stills: A London-y Day in the Park

Weekly Stills - Mother_s Day 2

Sometimes, when I least expect it, London appears before my eyes. It shows up in smooth green parkland grass, amber trees, crisp cool air, crunchy leaves and parks full to the brim with people. Mr Cool wanted to take the girls for a run yesterday afternoon, and I wanted to finally try out my new camera (geeky squeal) so, we donned coats and headed to Queen’s Park, a lovely big park in the centre of Toowoomba. While the girls ran {Read More}

Mother’s Day – Lessons From Oma

Mother_s Day 2

  I haven’t shared too much about all that I learnt during my ankle surgery recovery. To say I learnt a lot is kind of an understatement, I learnt about creativity, I learnt about being still, I learnt the value of listening and I learnt about friendships. I will share more about what I learnt while being still over the next little while. Today, in Australia, it is mother’s day. A day for cold tea and burnt toast, a day {Read More}
