Ok, today is day 19 of this challenge. By starting a challenge on October 1, I finish the day of my birthday!
This whole challenge this time is about tidying up my life....finishing unfinished business and taking care of myself so much better.
I am in the process of losing 50 kg. I have so far lost nearly 40, but gained back 5kg in the last month or two. I got very bored with Jenny Craig food and not to mention the expense. Today I decided that I wouldnt do Jenny Craig any… Continue

Im on day 17 of my 7th 100 day challenge...The upshot of it is contained in my blog. but here is my latest post concerning my goals and intentions for the week. This has been an amazing season already. I manifested a huge payrise for both my husband and myself of $2000 a month. This means we will have the cash to be able to fulfill a pretty amazing long term goal. Things are really moving for us and I am amazed with how the universe has moved mountains to help me along the way.…

Well, Thursday I was made redundant from my job! I had only been there 6 months, but I am really sad that now I have to go through the hassle of finding a new job. I guess its the universe saying to me....there is something out there for you and this just isnt it. I applied for four new jobs yesterday, all better paid and more challlenging so sending it out there that one comes through which is terrific with great people who I really like. The place where I was working was just so emotionally… Continue

This week has been a week of organising stuff. We are going to a wedding at the end of April of my beautiful niece. The wedding is in Brisbane, so we have to get all 6 of us there ( a 3 hour flight). This week I have arranged flights and accommodation. Will be so much fun as we will take the kids to the themeparks that week.
Another nephew gets married next week. I wanted to make a dress, but just dont have time. I did find a nice one today though, so I might buy it instead.
Oh and my… Continue

I havent been on much as we moved on the 27th of May and still havent got our broadband connected. (Im using mobile internet to do this)
Everything is going great in the new house. The kids are all happy and so am I. Its so much easier to keep clean.
Anyway, this morning I went to an alumni breakfast and the keynote speaker gave a talk about juggling family and work committments. I realised with the whack of a brick hitting me that really I do so much more with my… Continue

Ok, today is 103, only because I am not yet ready to start a new challenge, and havent quite finished this one.
Next Tuesday, we will be in the process of moving house. A major manifestation for us! We have been in our current house for most of our married life.....17 years or so. For us, moving on was such a major step. We have been through so much in these four walls. We went through recovery from addiction, the confrontation and eventual forgiveness of abusers, postnatal depression,… Continue

The last couple of days have been really difficult. I found a lump in my breast on Friday. I totally tortured myself over the weekend about it and pretty much decided what would happen if any result was positive. Told my husband on Sunday night and tomorrow have the appointment for a mammogram, ultrasound etc. Its not the first time, so I'm not as concerned as the last time it happened, but this time I have asked my husband not to come with me. My grandmother had breast cancer at the same age,… Continue

I am gradually getting our stuff together for the move into our new house. All of a sudden our present house seems so tiny, so hard to move and just well, not fun to be in. We have 4 kids, in a very very small 3 bedroom house. Our eldest son lives in a caravan out the back. The new house we have bought has 4 bedrooms inside and one bedroom and living area inside the garage and about twice as much space.
Today was a great day. I have been planning what furniture the kids will need for… Continue

As part of my quest to be a more charitable, loving and caring person, I decided to do at least one activity per month for a charitable organisation.
Today I worked on a house for Habitat for Humanity. I drove nearly 2 hours, put in a full working day, hammering, helping to put the framing up and putting up the eaves and really working hard and drove back home. I am so dog tired now, its not even 7pm and I am ready for bed. I have a bruised thumb from a misguided hammer blow and a… Continue

One thing the last couple of weeks has taught me is how difficult I find it to concentrate on more than one goal at a time.
I have concentrated so hard on getting the house sold and a new one purchased that I dropped the ball a bit as far as my business is concerned. Then no sooner had I started concentrating on my business, the house sale became more complicated with delays to contracts etc..LOL< business is picking up though.
This week, my goal is to increase my number of… Continue

It's been one awesome week, what with selling our house, getting the finance together for our new house and planning our move.
Sitting in the spa, talking to my partner this morning, we reasoned that we had hit a stalemate in our lives for the last 10 years almost. I know I was craving stability but in creating that, I held us at a standstill to a detriment of the family. I had an abusive childhood, and with having 2 kids diagnosed with autism, it was just all to much. I wanted something… Continue

WE SOLD OUR HOUSE AND WE GOT OUR FULL ADVERTISED ASKING PRICE!!!!!!!! More offers came in today and we accepted the highest. We are so pleased as it was a good $25000 more than we thought we would or could get. We have spent the last two weeks lovingly preparing the house and the estate agent said that when she opened the door for the open day it felt like she had opened a display home door of the most trendy and welcoming house. We had vanilla candles burning and every light on, the house was… Continue

We had an open day today and already we have had 1firm offer and 2 potential offers!! All the hard work has paid off. All the painting, all the landscaping, all the little things like new towels and nice yummy smelling candles have paid off. The offer we had was just below our asking price which was way over the expected sales price...
Looks like the Roberts family are moving on to bigger and better things!!!

Well, its been a busy sort of week! We painted the house in 4 days......right through, every room, floor to ceiling. I have never felt so sore all over, but at least it was great exercise. Oh and it looks terrific! Even the estate agent said what a different house it was compared to last week.
Our house is now officially on the market with people going through it every day. We are having an open day on Saturday. I am so hoping we sell it this weekend as it has been quite… Continue

On Friday, we bought a new house! We have to sell this one now......Busy repainting right through as it looks really tired and old fashioned. I rang a 4 painters and you know, none of them could do it until the end of April, so Im having to do it myself. Steve is not a good painter (hes alright if you want it all over the floors and places its not supposed to go) so he is relegated to washing the walls. We are all so happy to find a house we love and to have a big enough back yard for the kids… Continue

This morning we are going to look at a house I really love. I know I love it already and it has lots of the qualities that I want. I can see our family living there. I can see the children happy in the back yard. I can see Steve out the back shed brewing his beer and having the space all to himself. I can see my office. I can see my biscuits baking in the oven. I just love to cook and it has a huge oven. The universe is aligning so its ours.
Just packing up the caravan for this… Continue

Today is a day of preparation.
I had a lot of printing done yesterday of brochures for my business. Today I am preparing as many as I can and delivering them and getting artwork done for my advertising posters.
I will be working on getting the house spotless, and making sure the laundry is up to date and then packing our caravan ready to go tomorrow.
Tomorrow we are going on a short holiday down to a beautiful isolated little spot. Its away from the crowds, very… Continue

Last night I went to Alumni event, a lecture on Happiness. They were measuring the level of happiness across Australia over a period of 18 years, every year over 2000 people (different people each year). What they found is that people have a set point of happiness of around 75. It varies very little over the years, only about 3%, regardless of what has happened in that year. They also looked at different income levels. It seems that once you hit a family income of 80-100k, in Australia, the… Continue
