You know what yesterday was, right? International Star Wars Day. "May the Fourth be with you" and all that. It's an actual thing, didn't you know? Since we have a bit of a Star Wars mad population, a dressup box full of Jedi robes and since it has been AGES since we've done a theme dinner, ...

Yesterday I discovered that enjoying #mothersday is all about #expectations. Reality vs. the ideal. TV commercials vs. actual kids. If your mothers day was less than ideal, read my post and be comforted... #diymothersday

It's that time of the year again - #wintersport  and we have three kids playing three different #sports all in one morning. Which makes for a busy day. But so much fun! #ontheblog  #familylife

I've (kind of ) taken the plunge and renamed my #blog. After months of racking my brain, a compromise came to me as I played around in Photoshop. Something old, something new. A link to the past and more scope for my writing/blogging future. Drop by and check out my new header/title. And let me know what you think of the change!

Finding Fun on the Rollercoaster of life
Introduction
I'm a passionate blogger, wannabe writer, avid reader and DIY party kids party addict. I love to redesign blogs, and create printables for parties. I have two little from-home businesses which help pay a cleaner (I vehemently hate the drudge of housework ) and fund my kids' parties. I'm a mum of three energetic kids (aged 5, 8 & 10 yrs) and live with my British hubby in Auckland New Zealand.

Bragging rights
Plenty of stamps in my passport and smile lines on my face to show I've lived. Last year I wrote a Childrens Christmas book which got turned into a short film and is now popular on YouTube: http://www.greatfun4kidsblog.com/2012/11/im-published-my-book-unexpected.html (One of these days I'll get it published properly)
