In The Blink Of An Eye
My eldest son had his Year 12 School Formal last Friday. It only seems like yesterday he was this little man. In the blink of an eye. It has been such a privilege being Mum to my beautiful young men.

The biggest challenge I come across, when being invited into people's homes, week in week out, is the amount of 'stuff' we choose to live with. Clutter, treasures, keepsakes, necessities. Stuff.
