Mum is everyone’s personal secretary; but never her own!

Organising the family along with ones individual tasks, activities, jobs, chores, outings, sport days, excursions, swimming lessons, football/soccer/netball training, appointments to the dentist, hairdresser, doctor, optometrist etc is something the mother often does.  It is almost like running a business and being the personal secretary for the children (and the husband too) !

No Excuses whatsoever…. just 3 years of hard work and counting….

We all have excuses, some are legitimate and justifiable, while others have No Excuses whatsoever and when it comes to exercising, many factors need to be considered.   Exercising was a thing of the past once I had children, I chose to raise my family of 7 children which left little time to exercise or look after myself .  Of course there is […]

I use to do a variety of sports including […]

Towels & Gym Bag Storage Ideas

Don’t feel bad, sometimes it’s not possible to exercise

Exercising, going to the gym, personal training, running or even boot-camp are the rage at the moment. Someone you know is doing it; however don’t feel bad that you are not on the same level as everyone else. Sometimes physical exercise just ISN’T possible and especially if you are a full time mother.   Most […]
