Bring on the Jolly!

Christmas is three days away. I says pardon? Did you say three? Seriously, my pay check needs to sort it self out around this time of year and get on track with when the Baby Jesus makes his arrival because my lack of funds is putting a cramp in gift buying. There are also two…

Yes My House Does Look Like This – No I Don’t Care!

Recently, while in the midst of kitchen renovations, bathroom renovations, ceiling renovations (why didn’t we burn the house down?) a friend of my husbands came over.

Pumpkin Carving and Spooky Titles with Netflix

October. My favourite month. Cooler air, beautiful colours, big sweaters, tall boots, and Halloween. I love all of the spooky decorations, seeing kids dressed up, the anticipation of trick or treating, and of course, the candy!! Mmmmm, sweet sweet sugar.   In preparation for the scariest time of year we bundled up, lost ourselves in…

Family Movie Night with a New Recipe and Netflix

You Want a Tattoo Where? How Netflix can Help open a Dialogue Between You and Your Kids

4 am is peak time in our house. It’s the time of the morning that our elderly cat starts the call of her people. It’s the time of morning that the fat cat begins to beg for attention and shoves her very large, unusual paws in my face. And 4 am is the time of…
