Fathers Day Lucky Dip

By | Inspiration

Fathers Day is fast approaching. Some of you may be done and dusted, others….still struggling for inspiration.

I am trying something a little different this year for my husband. He is one of those men that really does have all he needs/wants and when he needs/wants something new he will just go and get it. Meaning gift buying can be a little hard.

This year we are creating a Lucky Dip for him, with various items.

Throughout the day at regular intervals the kids will help him pull out a gift to unwrap, creating a day filled with gift giving and reminders of why we love and honour him.

I did a Lucky Dip for my Mothers birthday last year and found it worked really well. My mother enjoyed the excitement of new little discoveries and the kids got SO excited about giving her gifts all day.

Autumn Bucket List 2019

By | Out with Children, Blue Mountains Experience, Inspiration

Autumn is a season of slowing down, savoring, and being more fully present in our everyday. As nature slows down and prepares for deep rest, it gives us permission to do so too. Simple things become moments of joy and as we relish cooler weather and the onset of cosy textures, tastes and smells. There is a contentment to be found as we slow and savor, realising the treasure in what we already have. There are so many things our family relishes during autumn, it really is a feast for the senses and definitely our favourite season. Here is some inspiration for you, i hope you enjoy all the glorious gifts of autumn!
