I'm not going to take over. I'm not going to take over. I'm not going to take over. 😳 One of the things motherhood has taught me is to let go of control. It's still hard but I know it's important to let them create without censoring. Could do with a drink to deal with it though. Hahahahaha. #notkidding

Es: "Een april, kikker in je bil ..." Me: "How did the frog get into my bottom?" Es: "Don't be silly mummy, it rhymes." How are we in Q2 already is the more important question I think?!?! Al is excited as we are counting down until his birthday in 12 days - he couldn't contain his excitement as I changed the calendar over "It's my birthday month!!!!" Happy April Fool's Day folks - watch out for those tricksters.

Blueberry #pancake cravings today but wanted to be healthy after yoga so went with a wheat free, sugar free option. And while I ate these delicious 'healthy' alternatives I wondered why healthy still means dull and tasteless for a lot of people - we have the technology these days so there's no excuse! #excusethecrappyphoto #cookingstrikeonhold #breakfast

What did you make them with? I use spelt flour for pancakes or whizz up oatmeal in the foodprocessor.

@tippics

@tippics
Oh I sometimes use spelt to but a friend left some gluten free stuff so I finished that off - probably corn based (which I try not to use too often as corn isn't particularly healthy either!) @elvanht

Make your bed (when you get up) - one of our #20waystostart and a great way to start the day on the right foot. If my 5yo can do it, so can you and yours. 😊 It's not about perfection, it's about done. Applaud their efforts (& yours)...& if it takes too long or is too complicated then how could you make it quick and easy? I've always loved Martha Stewart's tip of smoothing the sheets and pulling up the blankets BEFORE you get out. Genius! Happy hump day folks! 👊 PS I sound preachy but it really works! And am so proud of the wee man (& my girl who now does it because he got so much praise! 😉)

Loved reading this today from @JohnAcuff - part 2 really got me thinking. I'm pretty good at part 1 but selling feels so icky so I rarely shout from the rooftops about what (@natplays & I) create ... Like our 30 day "Change your space, Change your life" course which we know actually changes lives for the better, significantly. Working on this bit. Baby steps towards embracing marketing! #wisewords #breatheandshine

Oneself/yourself!

@jenniferloiselle

@tippics That would be a great idea! I often think it isn't those with the best idea that do well, it's the ones who can talk to anyone/everyone about their product etc. I'm always a bit embarrassed, have no idea why.

@tippics

It totally is. I think some of it is upbringing as I'm the same! @jenniferloiselle

Wow, I'm officially impressed with her! Yes, @natplays that's the one I was thinking of. Tiffany is one of my favorite characters, such an awesome role model for girls and in a fun way

@tippics

@tippics
Well, she was motivatied to learn to read in English because she wanted to Google her own games to play (& understand the instructions) as well as Google things to watch so ... Whatever works, right?! 😂 @zrinkush

@zrinkush

@zrinkush
Oh totally! I hope my boys will be equally motivated some day :-)

@natplays

@natplays
Tiffany is one of my fav characters too! @zrinkush @tippics will check the first one probably it is good for 8yr old ...she's ready for Harry potter and babysitters club too ;)

@natplays

@natplays
@tippics love her reasoning - they need all of this stuff for their world it's an AND as far as im concerned (I watched copious amounts of tv, was on the computer and read tons I turned out fine hahaha well you know I turned out me ;)

Just read a truly eye opening article about the addiction conspiracy but what I got out of it was this quote from EM Forster & the message - that humans crave connection (hence the great success of social media) BUT what we really need is real human connection in our surrounding environment. So remember - a real life connection a day keeps the addictions away. (It's a long article but if you're interested then I'll send you the link.) Sweet dreams! 😘

Hubs walks into where I'm working and says "it's getting a bit too warm in here". Nutter. 😜 ☀️☀️☀️ Happy hump day! PS Just heard about @Healing_Belle & @thewholepantry app - seriously, why would folk lie about cancer?!?! Ugh. And saddened by @jessainscough's death at such a young age - find an empathetic doctor & listen to their advice in conjunction with looking at alternatives. It's all about balancing the medical resources & research that we have at our disposal (& remember, most folk don't even have that!). #tooyoungtodie

OK, here it comes. Inspired by Si's list (check her blog for more) - I'd have to agree with them all, in terms of what I'd tell my younger self or my daughter (or children actually). I'm trying to give them the gift of confidence, of self-belief, of personal strength and of acceptance & understanding but more than anything it's self-love & the knowledge that they are enough. Whatever that looks like, we are all worthy of love and respect. It took me a very long time to realise this & I still falter occasionally. #Dearme #adviceformyyoungerself @frenchbydesign #madewithOver @Over #internationalwomensday #Womensday2015 #iwd2015 #youtube
