    5 Ways to Bring Your Family Back To The Table

    Let’s face it, during lockdown we all let our normal routines slip, more time on tech, going to bed later than usual, more treats and rewards, perhaps dinners in front of the TV or screens slipped into the mix too.

    Firstly, let me start by saying that lock down and home schooling were extremely challenging times, it wasn’t a “normal” situation and so we all in some way shape or form dropped some of our routines that normally aren’t negotiable.

    More FUN than Take-away!

    What I have found however, is that there is a type of meal that also promotes casual dining (think zero cutlery), is a lot healthier, fits within the budget and my kids love it, perhaps even more than take-away! To be fair, it doesn’t 100% give me the night off, but it does limit my food preparation time and I do find that there is a lot less “finish this” “eat that” “one more” discussions at the table, which is refreshing in itself.

    Why Family Traditions Are Important

    Those nostalgic family moments are a lot more significant than you might realise. You see, family traditions play an important role in childhood. Much more than just a fond memory, as a child they are like your favourite warm fluffy blanket on a cold winter’s night, comforting, reliable and best of all, familiar.

    Don’t Throw Out Your Dining Tables!

    I don’t normally watch “THE BLOCK” on channel 9Now, but their promotional advertisement that announced the latest controversy of a living/dining room reveal without a dining table certainly grabbed my attention. See the story here: https://9now.nine.com.au/the-block Luxurious as it may...
