Things I’ve learned in my 30’s

It wasn’t such a big deal for me turning 30, it was one of the happiest years of my life and I spent it celebrating with my love in the Hunter Valley immersed in wine tastings and fine dining.  Now … Read More Things I’ve learned in my 30’s

Ice Skating!

So I’ve already ticked off one thing from my mini bucket list and that’s taking Gracie ice skating!!  She absolutely loved it – especially as she got a little push along penguin and skates of her own.  After a bit I think her confidence was up and she refused to hold the penguin and just wanted to skate?!!  It was actually such a workout … Read More Ice Skating!
