New Year, New Focus

I have decided to ressurrect this blog for two reasons.

One is the challenges set by Ali Edwards through her Life Artist Newsletter at

One Word Challenge

My 2007 word is ORGANISE.

I would like to organise my study, thinking, reading, chores, home and family ( just kidding). I wish to bring peace and calm to my world in what is going to be a very busy year - I'm studying, Rach in year 3, jay in Year 1 and Miles starts preschool.
