Whether you are visiting on holidays or live here, taking the kids to the playground is one of the best free things to do and it is fun. It’s a great place for kids to interact with other kids and also for mums to meet mums. We have some brilliant parks around Coffs...
So you’re a mum now. And the second that baby was born this deep seeded emotion you can’t control suddenly entered your life. Guilt.
It hits you like a cold day in numerous ways. It haunts you on a range of topics – feeding, sleep, play, education… It hits you when you leave that bundle of joy…. and it hits you when you don’t….
Guilt can be a scary word but you can’t let it encompass who you are and the mark you make on this world. So it’s time to take back control and choose to love yourself again, not beat yourself up every second of the day.
Time for you can take many forms. It can be just taking three big, deep beautiful breaths. Or just five minutes in a dark spot away from the kids with yourself and your thoughts and acknowledging how you feel.
Maybe you need to get out and get the blood pumping. A walk along the beach or to your favourite coffee shop. Or a workout session that makes you feel on top of the world.
Download an app and try a home workout/yoga session or venture out and join an outdoor group session. There are even groups out there that cater for babies and kids so you can leave all that guilt right at the door.
If none of those are your thing, just do something for YOU. Wash your hair, shave your legs, paint you nails, talk to a friend, watch some trash TV…. Whatever it is, make it something that makes you glow inside and put the guilt away for the day…. You need the time. Guilt needs to take a seat on the shelf.
Be you, do you, and love you. Rock it out Mumma.

HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON: THE HIDDEN WORLD
From DreamWorks Animation comes a surprising tale about growing up, finding the courage to face the unknown… and how nothing can ever train you to let go. What began as an unlikely friendship between an adolescent Viking and a fearsome Night Fury dragon has become an epic trilogy spanning their lives. When the sudden appearance of a female Light Fury coincides with the darkest threat their village has ever faced, Hiccup and Toothless must journey to a hidden world thought only to exist in myth. In this last chapter, Hiccup and Toothless will finally discover their true destinies, and dragon and rider will fight together to protect everything they’ve grown to treasure.
Featuring the voices of Jay Baruchel, Cate Blanchett, Gerard Butler, Jonah Hill and Kristen Wiig.
