This is a sponsored post for www.villa-finder.com. Mid winter – even the mostly mild winter we experience here in Queensland – and I can’t help feeling a bit “meh”. I’m sure I’m not the only one that’s been daydreaming of a holiday in a tropical destination! And my destination of choice would have to be […]

A look back on the month that was June 2018 … We’ve been having lovely family times enjoying the brazier in the backyard, and cosying up indoors to play various board games. The board game binge started with Monopoly last month; since then we’ve moved on to Pass the Pigs, and Battleships. It’s so much […]

When it comes to social media, Facebook and Instagram are probably my faves – though I have to admit I sometimes struggle with the pressure to present a “perfect” Instagram feed, carefully curated and colour coordinated. It just looks so pretty y’know? But then I think, pffftttt, who can be bothered, and also – isn’t […]

NB: I wrote this post at the beginning of the week, and almost deleted it because I try to keep things positive here on Middle Aged Mama. There’s enough negativity in the world without me adding to it! But I’ve decided to hit publish in the interests of “keeping it real”. Even happy little bunnies […]

For quite a while now, I’ve been thinking about how I can give back to the community through this blog. With the end of financial year rapidly approaching, I did some sums and worked out 10% of my blog’s gross income, ready to donate it to a charity or not-for-profit. Next step? Choosing which cause […]

When I first set up my own place after leaving home, I loved to go grocery shopping – it was so much fun to buy all the products and the food that *I* wanted! And when I started going out with the hubster, he felt the same way. He was still living at home and […]

I never really thought about how your hair can make you look older – until I went to the hairdresser the other day, and literally gasped when I saw the difference a bit of professional TLC could make. I really wish I’d thought to take “before” and “after” photos, but I think the pics above […]

I have a theory that undiagnosed or untreated depression in one (or both) partners, is behind the breakup of many marriages. Let me explain.

Sometimes, you just need to get away from it all. That’s what we were looking for when we booked a weekend at Wallaby Ridge Retreat for our recent wedding anniversary, and it definitely delivered.
