  • Siblings

    Last post: Quietly opinionated on 13.10.14 at 13:50

    I'm really close to my brother - although we do live in different countries! (and have done for over 10 years). My husband has 3 1/2 siblings that he has no contact with & 2 step siblings that there's no contact with either. I find it sad for our kids the most as they don't have the close cousins I had growing up Read more about Siblings

  • Ideas for Free Activities with Kids

    What about things like 10 pin bowling? Not sure if the pricing has followed the trend of movies (how expensive are they these days!?), but sometimes there's discounts in papers/shopping receipts. Doing your nails then out for icecreams? Is there local water slides/pools now that the weather's heating up? Read more about Ideas for Free Activities with Kids

  • Win 1 of 2 Silk Epil 7’s courtesy of Farmers & Braun

    Love that it works on super-short hairs!!! Worst thing about waxing - waiting for hair to grow long enough, so you end up looking like a motley duck in between sessions. Not a good look. I always thought Epilator's were a thing from the 70's, I think I've just been proved wrong and am quite excited about that! Read more about Win 1 of 2 Silk Epil 7’s courtesy of Farmers & Braun

  • DEPRESSION OVER XMAS

    Last post: Quietly opinionated on 19.12.13 at 03:13

    Good on you for reaching out on here - they say acknowledging things is the first step forward. I'm actually struggling myself this year - in my case it's post natal depression, so I guess I'm lucky that I've got a midwife involved to be able to point me in the right direction. I'm seeing a councilor tomorrow. They say talking about it helps. Are you able to see your GP or a councillor or someone? Family or friends that could help? Read more about DEPRESSION OVER XMAS

  • The home garden

    Last post: Quietly opinionated on 19.12.13 at 02:39

    My garden has been so neglected in the last month - with the arrival of a new baby and a week in Waikato hospital with him. Thankfully though the tomato plants seem to be doing there thing unsupervised and the bean plants are slowly growing. The mint & parsley have gone crazy. No new plantings though - but there seems to be an abundance of cheap veges at the supermarket so not too phased yet Read more about The home garden

  • What's better - a workout of chocolate?

    Last post: Quietly opinionated on 19.12.13 at 02:36

    Nothing beats the feeling of post-work out for me. Except maybe the enjoyment of a glass of wine AFTER a work out that day. I tend to exercise mostly because I love the feeling of being fit, but also because it lets me indulge in my wine and guilty food pleasures (chocolate being right up there) without having to even think about my weight.

  • Win 1 of 5 Cadbury Favourites Mini Blocks Prize Packs

    Last post: Quietly opinionated on 19.12.13 at 02:32

    Chocolate bars usually win out over blocks - small enough to smuggle in the handbag away from the family so I don't have to share. This looks like a mammoth amount of chocolate which would let me get my chocolate fix AND share with the family - making me the best wife/mum ever!

  • Crooked teeth: the new sexy!

    Last post: Quietly opinionated on 02.12.13 at 18:01

    Wrong wrong wrong!!!! I might be slightly biased after spending much of my youth wearing braces to 'perfect' my teeth, but can't say crooked teeth appeals at all. Maybe it's part of the rebellion against beauty/perfection. A bit like 'ugly-ing up' barbie - cue the backlash against that comment! :) Read more about Crooked teeth: the new sexy!
