New Year New Direction

My gorgeous boy at Christmas Carols 

This is the photo we used in our Christmas E-Card

Strategically placed chin so you don't see its double and making sure "I" look good in the picture. Hehehe...

Its been awhile since I've done a 'proper' post. I guess the holidays can get quite draining and groundhog day-ish! Asher thankfully has had his mate stay over the night and their playing which is welcome relief for me! As you mumma's with no breaks will understand.

Anyways this year I'm taking a new direction and I start my studies towards becoming an Early Childhood Education (ECE) teacher. I didn't think I'd be doing this! Just ask my friend Mama Moo.

Its a direction that I think God is cool with me taking as all things have fallen in to place for me and its been great. I said to Him I'm not sure about this LORD and if you want this for me its got to work out and it has. I only just got my Diploma of Counselling early last year after 5 years of hard work. But this comes with a different direction and combination of my talents and gifts. 

I guess I'm always going to want to work with people. I tend to get on with all age groups and its a quality I appreciated in myself. Kids are an amazing breed and more now then ever at their age they need fun and loving people in there lives.

So this is a new year and a new focus! (And I intend on meeting the man of my realistic dreams!). Asher started at a new school September last year and my prayer for him is great friendships with those who can encourage and love him and he can do the same for them. Having a full year with the same peers will be good. Been a parent is hard work and you never a day goes by where you're not thinking about their well-being. I think all you parents so an amazing job!

Anyways God is GOOD and life continues to be an interesting journey. I want to re-ignite my passions and fevour for life and the LORD because its been a flat time of late so here's to changes!

Happy New Year y'all. I look forward to reading about what you guys get up too this year.

Review Number Toru (3)

Hmmm juice, a nice refreshment option for this time of the year. I had to review the new flavours from Just Juice called "Just Juice Orchard" range that have come out.

What I didn't realize is that they were 3 different flavours because of the packaging... I mustn't have been looking close enough but those litre packs are quite similar!

I tried the Sun Kissed Orange with a friend of mine and we both weren't too keen on the taste. A bit tart but  it did taste like fresh juice but not an overload of pulp. I wouldn't intentionally buy it.

My sister and her family tried the Strawberry and Kiwifruit and really like the taste so that went  down well!

They said the Farm Style Apple tasted more like orange juice with apple. Rather then trying to sell it as an apple juice perhaps give it equal footing with orange. 

Anyway I like the Just Juice Range but these aren't for me.
