Re: Life in the bush

Great post with many interesting stories. We had our time in the bush and loved every minute of it. It's a wonder we're here to tell the tales sometimes.

Re: Adultesence

I got told, by another parent, that I was mean to my children - because they make their own lunches (eldest was 5 at the time). I used to but my eldest didn't like the way I did it, I suggested he...

Re: BE Then and now...a celebration of the migration boom..and death

As a parent I never thought I'd hear myself say, why don't you have a chocolate bar instead of a bunch of bananas - they were my youngest's fav fruit. Cost over $19 where we were in rural SA.

Re: Anyone else got a Fitbit or similar?

Hubby has a Garmin version. Syncs his text/calls from phone too which is handy. Son also "had to" have one and it's good to help him focus on activity levels.
