Holiday saviours for Stressed Mums
For most of us we have just spent a fortune and don't want to spend even more entertaining the kids, but, they are getting bored as they do at the end of the holidays, so don't forget all the cool kid stuff that is happening at our Coast Libraries. Caloundra have 'The Program' with some really cool stuff, and Noosa has their 'Holiday Blast'. These are really cool & cater from toddlers to teenagers so check out what is happening in the Events Calendar and look for their logos!

Careful what you wish for

Nearly everyone makes New Year's Resolutions. I never bother as I reckon the chances of me keeping them are next to zero, just like most other people. After having a shocker of a year last year, this year I decided that for once we would celebrate New Years, as I was happy to see the back of the last one as it was the worst of my life, and my resolution was sort of left up to fate with a vague
'The Next Year Will be Better'!.

Maybe I was actually tempting fate? Since then, in only 5 days there have been soooo many changes for both me and my environment. A hair trim ended up being 'short hair' (mental note: daughter & friend cutting your hair when you have had a few drinks is not a good idea LOL); Christmas & New Year without my parents around for the first time in a decade; and the weather... I got this lovely bath robe for Christmas and like a little kid was disappointed you can't wear it straight away, who would have thought I would have it on in the next few days because it was so cold? Hello? This time of year we should be complaining about it being too hot to sleep, and I should be the pool dragon lady yelling at the kids every 30 minutes to put sunscreen on or they will be sin binned! Not this holiday break, the weather has been bizarre, I think my mother holidaying in the UK & Spain has had warmer weather then us...

We came back to work and I am thinking, ok, we have caught up over the holiday break, life will get back to normal... Nope, new phone system (if I accidently lose your call when transferring you, please forgive me, I am still on a learners permit), then the lovely Anita calls from ABC CoastFM to tell me that she will no longer be doing 'Get Out of The House' with me on a Friday morning (going to miss our chats & laughs), and I am moved to 4.15 on a Friday Afternoon, though I am sure the new crew I will be talking to will be just as nice, it was another change and the year was only 4 days old.

I am starting to wonder if I actually tempted fate with such a vague resolution, and now am wondering what will happen next? I am not one of those people who is normally set in their ways, the odd change is good for you, though I wonder whether all these things happening to me was a well timed kick up the bum? We spend most of our time working, or running around after our child, and I don't even think we realised that we were in a rut? We live in one of the most beautiful parts of the world, have jobs that we love and enjoy, a (now) healthy child, great friends & family, yet we rarely take time out to enjoy it.

I am sure there are many of you out there who are the same? Never really do anything different, or take the time to enjoy what you do have. We have a big Party this weekend, (Happy Birthday Marie), and instead of just driving down, going to the party & driving home, we are actually going to spend the night in good old BrisVegas in a hotel and besides the party have no plans! Who knows what we might do...

My wish for everyone this New Year is that you all 'Get a Life'! I know that is what all these changes are prompting me to do :)
