One day not too long ago..2 Australian mamas were sitting on a back deck, sipping wine.. and talking up all the oxygen available.. when the conversation turned to life lessons.. and what they thought were the ones that certainly and without doubt needed to be learned. The two teenage daughters of the 2 mamas were, in turn, amazed, amused, and repulsed, by the words of wisdom tumbling forth from the mamas' mouths. These are, in no particular order, those words.

Cherish those friends whom you might see once/twice a year but you pick up the conversation where you left off last time.  They are true gems.

No-one else can make you happy but yourself.

If it takes less than a minute to do something: close a drawer, put clothes into a dirty clothes basket: do it.  Do it NOW.

If you can’t find something, tidy up.

Long term relationships are sometimes hard, sometimes glorious and sometimes routine. The trick is to keep the balance.

If there is something fishy going on and it involves a child, it is your business to do something about it.


  1. I really, really LOVE your blog & have been reading it for a few months now. Everything you say is SO TRUE.
