It's been soooooo, soooo very long since I've checked in on G+. I must admit that I have really missed it! I'm now back at work after 6 years as a SAHM, mostly because of this guy below - he's my husband, and he's not exactly been very well of late, so we've switched places for a bit. I'm now 'bringing home the bacon' and he's now doing the school drop-off's, pickup's and everything in-between - ' Home Executive' styles.

He's also blogging about this new phase for our family. If you have the inclination , and you like to read stuff that funny guys write, head to http://www.starkravingdad.com or join him here on G+ - I know he'd be super happy if you did :-)

I'm adapting, though slowly, to my new life. Next comes finding the work-family-music balance I so crave - can it be done?! :)
I rely solely on coffee to parent effectively.

My boys out at Aramoana beach - it's such an amazing spot, towering cliffs right next to the ocean, and huge sand dunes all the way along. Love it out there! :-)

This short film is so beautifully shot and put together. I've always wanted to see the sights of San Diego. After watching this I really, REALLY, must go there with my children!! Added to my bucket list

I'm loving spending the summer holidays with my favourite little people. Picnics, body boarding, exploring rock pools... Experiencing the world through the eyes of my children- and it's one divinely, beautiful,intriguing place!

Hi guys! A few of you have been asking for this for a while and I've finally got it sorted - you can now buy an unplugged version of Boy Like You from CD Baby, yay! :-)

Hope everyone's Christmas build-up is going well, and you're getting the chance to slow down and relax a bit before the big day :-)

Hi everyone! I've just finished recording up a new original song, and am so excited to share it with you all :-) 

Inspired by my sister-in-law's magical wedding and a good friends' journey through pregnancy, this song is a celebration of all those big moments in life - the ones that take our breath away when we finally reach them. Life's precious moments go by so quickly, and this song is all about just being in the moment.

I really hope you all enjoy it, please feel free to share away if you do!! :-)

Hello :) Its been quite sometime since I've posted here! I've been trying to juggle life as a working mum...its one hard balancing act (especially after seven years at home raising my babies!) 

I wanted to share this clever little number with you. The up-lifting track and clever puppetry, meant I was completely captivated for the entirety of the track .Even If you're not the biggest Coldplay fan, I'm sure you'll appreciate the charming clip. My children were spell-bound!

+Kate Butson   I also really like "Glass of Water" from the EP ...  it has a very British sound which I love.

I'm a transplanted yank from New Mexico. Been here 8 years, lecturing in music at the uni. Thanks for the tip. I do know where the building is, now. It's been awhile since I've been to Chingford Park, although I do pass it whenever I drive home to Port Chalmers over North Rd. Good to meet you.

Hi everyone! I'm Kate, a 32 year old mother of two adorable (and hi-octane!) boys, aged 5 and 3. We live in Dunedin, on the South Island of New Zealand. I used to be a primary school teacher, but for the past few years have been a full-time mum. I love music, and whenever I get a spare moment I work on my own original songs. 

Nice to meet you all - looking forward to chatting :-)

Introduction
Hi, I'm Kate! I'm an ex-teacher turned singer/songwriter, and a proud mum to two gorgeous little boys.

I live in New Zealand, waaaay down at the bottom of the world! :-)

With my two young children starting to get a bit older (read: I can finally nab more than 3 seconds away for myself.) I've started writing some original songs. Yay!

I'm absolutely loving Google+ - my stream is full of amazing, creative, positive people - such a refreshing change!
