If you live in the Torbay, Auckland area, please take a look at this image, and keep an eye out for Pat.

The more eyes, the better.

Would truly appreciate it if you could share this too - the more people who see this the more likely she will be found.

So many of you struggle in silence, but I want you to know you don't have to.

Asking for help means youโ€™ve struggled for so long you can no longer do it alone. It shows you are wise. Not weak.

Asking For Help Doesn't Mean You're Weak

It's not even 9pm and it's pouring down with rain here. Does anyone else get affected by the weather?

Got home after a wonderful evening with family and now I've got a headache and am feeling down.

I want to chill out in the lounge and enjoy me time, as the kids have just gone to bed, but instead I'm going to go to bed too.

Going to put on some music and just chill out whilst reading...

I am grateful to be a parent, but it doesn't mean it's all smooth sailing ...

When Ronan was a baby, I just used to let Chloe do whatever the heck she wanted. Not surprisingly, that meant playing in the clean washing whilst eating food

Last night I let the kids do something I normally wouldn't - lie in our bed whilst eating AND watching devices

I don't usually do posts like these, so I don't know how long I'll leave it up for - depends on if I have balls or not!

I want to say from me to you - the reader, the writer, the young person, the old person: you do not need to get naked on the internet to get a "like" on Facebook.

A "like" on Facebook, or a follow or a comment, does not define you as a person.

This is my own personal...

A bit early to be posting this, but grab a coffee and read about my train wreck of emotions.

Last week I had a meltdown: a toddler sized meltdown ...

I gave the Nude Food Mover an 8/10 as part of my lunch box review series - I'm at Spotlight now and can see they're on sale!

I also know they're on sale at Kmart too

I might be going against the grain on this, but I actually love the school holidays.

I don't love having to think of something to do with the kids.

I don't love breaking up the fights.

I don't love yelling, what feels like, every 2 mins.

I don't love feeling like I'm losing my mind.

But I do love spending time together with both of the kids. Especially Chloe since she started Kindy...

Just learned that there is apparently a red apple shortage. Sometimes I feel like it's my kids who eat all the red apples. We go through at least 5 a day!

We still have some in the fridge but not for long

I absolutely loved Pete's Dragon when I saw it at the movies, and completely think it's one of those movies that will be remembered forever.

It's out on DVD on the 18th January, AAAND I have TWO copies for two of you.
