Finished a two-days writing course over the weekend. I am really glad that I did it. So maybe I won’t be a great writer but have discovered that (maybe) I can, in fact write. Good or bad, who knows? I was quite nervous to start with (at the beginning of the course). Not knowing what

It is important to be prepared or at least, as prepared as you can be, in case of a disaster. I have put this off for a number of years. But have decided to finally do something about it. Especially now that I have a young family. The earthquake in Christchurch was the wake up

Despite the horrible weather on Saturday (just gone by), I decided to check-out the Baby Childrens Market, at the Mt Eden War Memorial Hall. I only managed a quick squiz through the stalls, as I was already pushed for time (had to take my mother-in-law’s cat to the vet). But thought that it was really

After a very stressful and busy couple of months, with mum in and out of hospital. I decided that I needed a girls day out (at least a few hours anyway). So, I roped some of the ladies from my coffee group to an Afternoon Tea at The Langhams. I wanted to be a bit

A truely child-friendly cafe on the North Shore. The Windsor Cafe has the perfect set up for mums with bubs. They have a large, fully fenced play area for the kids (outdoors). And there is plenty of space inside the cafe if the weather turns into custard. The coffee is pretty decent and they do
