How it all began!

What were you doing at 16? While at Manawatu Polytechnic, in Palmerston North, way back in 1993, studying towards my Office Systems Receptionist course, I decided to singlehandedly plan and organize a tourism trip to Rotorua for my fellow classmates and me. I was only 16 years old at the time. I came up with the idea of spending a couple of days in Rotorua to tie in with our year long course, to learn more about the Tourism industry.  That way we could classify the trip as course related an...

Make it count!

Recently I came across a post on LinkedIn where a woman was sharing her story about her brother’s terminal illness.  With only months to live, how he and his wife spend every minute of them together is the only thing that matters. Creating magical memories that his wife can fondly look back on long after her husband has gone will be more important than anything else they have done together. My comment to his sister was to make sure that they record stories with her brother so they will ha...

L O V E spells T I M E

In todays busy world we often spell L O V E with 4 very different letters, T I M E.  With time being limited, when couples make time to celebrate their connection and expectations can and should be high. Time is something that Russell and I have had in short supply since he began his studies 6 years ago.  Having chosen to complete a Bachelor of Business (Marketing) on a part time basis all the while working full time for the NZDF, we knew that our quality time together would be limited...

68 hours in Wanaka

After enduring a long-distance relationship while Russell was in an MIQF role in Auckland recently, the opportunity to spend a few days away together was very much needed before he headed back to work on base. We chose to head down to Wanaka for 3 nights as it had been some 10-11 years since we were last there.  With it being the end of September, the weather would ensure the road trip was enjoyable and the roads safe to travel on. We had done our research prior to leaving and knew what we ...

Romantic Delights in the bedroom

Life as we know it is a little uncertain right now.  We are flooded with information, some of it helpful and some of it not so much.  Restrictions have been put in place by the government and plans need to be changed to accommodate those restrictions. While we begin to look at ways to keep ourselves and our families safe, we start to reduce the trips we take and the places we visit.  In doing so, this creates a negative impact on small local businesses who need cash flow in order ...

What will life be like for us with an empty nest?  Will our empty house be empty or will it still be full of life?  Will I feel alone and unwanted or will I feel very much needed?  Will I cry all the time or will I be the happiest woman alive?  Am I afraid of what is to come or brave for facing it head on? These are just some of the things I think about from time to time.  Fear of the unknown, not knowing what is to come is something that we all think about at some point...

Empty nest

As I sit here looking out the window at another glorious day here in Canterbury, I reminisce about the time long passed where my babies were completely dependent on me for their well being.  A time where I was their whole world, a world which they thought revolved around them and maybe it did.  A time where I consciously gave up my desire to follow my passion to focus on being there for them 100%.  A time when the last thing you think about is having an empty nest. My entire focus...
