Where There’s a Will….

Attention: open in a new window. Print

There’s something about becoming a parent that suddenly requires you to take charge of things which may have otherwise been left undone. There is a need to take responsibility for your life and finances with little ones under your care. It’s a good opportunity to check you have life insurance, write a will, consolidate your debt and rollover your super, as well as considering giving up pub crawls and eating bowls of cereal for dinner.

Stepping through the front door of your new place of employment can be an exciting yet nerve-wracking experience. You nailed the interview, so are feeling confident, but a whole lot of unknowns are looming ahead, and you still don’t know if this job is going to be what you hope, or whether you are going to be able to fulfill your new employer’s expectations, though you sincerely hope you do.

Daylight savings has begun and the days are finally getting longer. While we may be craving the sun and surf, now is the time to make sure your tax returns are submitted to avoid heavy fines (needs to be done by the end of this month at the very latest), once its sorted you can go out and enjoy the Jasmine infused air instead of doing your paperwork.

How to Refresh Your Home With a Tiny Budget

Walking through my front door after a long day is one of my favourite things. The welcome site of my space filled with familiar and treasured things. Even living in a rental, and even though I have a love hate relationship with it, nothing beats coming home. I fling my bag on the couch and flick my shoes off (though it’s all done a little less elegantly now I’m into my third trimester). Even more wonderful is coming home to a space which has been recently cleaned or tidied, or even better, recently updated. Comforts of home include having the familiar around us, but a change is as good as a holiday so having new things to look upon, or a fresh feel to the same space, can make coming home feel even better. It’s home, but its fresh, revived, energised, not stagnant.

How Paid Parental Leave Works

I am well and truly on my way to being a mum. I now waddle rather than walk, I now have to bend down with my legs comically far apart in order to pick anything up from the floor, I now have to pee several times during the night, and I sleep with a total of 4 pillows. I’m doing a few gentle pre natal yoga stretches each day, listening to my ‘Calm Birth’ meditation CD and maintaining a healthy diet, lots of rest and am accumulating a growing pile of baby stuff.
