For Sale

So we've finally done it. The papers are signed, the photographer has been and the sign has been ordered. My sweet beach house is on the market and I am so tired but totally pumped. It has been a very long journey but I know it's the right thing to do. Time to embrace the change and start living a more downscaled life. I will be back next week with more info but for now check out And be sure to pass it on to anybody who would just love to get a slice of Burns Beach.

Dental Hell

I have never been afraid of the dentist. Never worried when they drilled and filled. Never shuddered when they extracted a wisdom tooth that was infected(yuk). Flash forward to now and it is a totally different story. Last time I had a check up my dentists started talking about why one of my wisdom teeth hadn't come though and it seemed that it was impacting on the back molar. Freak out. It must have been a reflection on my mental state at the time, but I just couldn't face having a tooth ferociously ripped from my gums. Those evil dentists are trying to kill me........ I went running scared and haven't seen a dentist for more than two years. Around that time I started seeing a chiropractor for some serious spinal work. The pain was debilitating to say the least and for those unaware of the chiropractic world they are not dissimilar to dentists. Evil, back braking masters of fear. Anyway I had my back x-rayed, not so bad until the fear master walks out with a glint of insanity in his eyes saying my wisdom tooth was clearly growing sideways into my back molar. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh. Serious freakout! Slowly melt my fearful memories into a dark cob wed filled filling cabinet in the back of my mind. Marked scary dental and chiropractic images. Ignorance is bliss in this instance.
It brings me to now though and I know I need to visit the dentist. I can't let my other teeth suffer just because of one tooth who never received a roadmap. So here it goes do I make yet another dental appointment only to miss it. Or do I rise up and cross one more thing of my New Years Resolutions. Face my fears I shall.

P.S. I do highly recommend Dr Scott Campbell-Lloyd at my entire family have been regulars at the clinic since the 80's. I think that says something!

Time Out

After many weeks of tiresome DIY and decorating I was lucky enough to be in the presence of some lovely women and have a soothing and relaxing time out. My bestie hosted a Nutrimetics party with the lovely Christine who after many years always finds a way to surprise us. I am not big on fancy cosmetics but I am interested in feeling my best and Nutrimetics totally works for me. My favourites are the Lash Impact Mascara, Nutri Rich Shower Oil and of coarse the classic Nutri Rich Oil. Ah bliss if only we could all be treated like that everyday.

Resolution review

Considering it it the middle of the year I thought it would be a good idea to review my New Years Resolutions. This is my list:-
1. Look after Me
2. Work on my Marriage
3. Cook and eat well
4. Swim
5. Yoga classes
6. Visit Dentist, Dermatologist, Doctor
7. Organise a cleaner
8. Organise my Ironing
9. Play with my kids

So there it is in black and white. Let's see I am going to yoga and have sorted my ironing but I really don't know about the others though. I do remember to make an effort sometimes but I realise I could defiantly put in way more effort. What were your new years resolutions and are you still doing you'd best to follow them?
