the most thoughtful…!

May 15, 2018

Miss Year 8: β€œHey Ms Kwok, I went op-shop shopping over the weekend and Mum + I found this, so we got for you!”

My goodness! 😍

In absolute honesty, it’s not COMPLETELY me, but the fact that a one Miss Year 8 spent her hard earned dollars on something stupidly colourful in the most thoughtful + spontaneous way on behalf of me?!

That got me completely. Thank you, gorgeous kidlet. 😊


above all, be kind. you are one of many, worthy and loved.

Be outstanding, be fierce, be committed, be focused, be whatever crazy you want, but be connected + kind. And if kindness is not possible, then honest + respectful. You’re one of many, unique but the same.

please be tender + aware

Mothers Day is a day of joy, but a day of tenderness + grief for some.

Please be gentle on each other. While celebrating mothers of all kinds, be aware that some will long to be but cannot, or be grieving, angered by, anguished, torn apart and unsettled by what is essentially a commercial day for expressing love that should be happening EVERY day.

We, the ones who are hurting, do not want you to dim your joy in celebration or motherhood.

But today puts a spotlight upon a part of life that we live with on a daily basis in the most unkind and superficial way. Sometimes, the day goes fine. Other days, it’s a dull ache. Other days still, the power of our grief takes our breath away.

But still, we want you toΒ live and honourΒ your joy. Live it inΒ full gratitude, in honour of all we do not, or cannot, have.

year 12 “mum” for the mothers day win!

May 12, 2018

So this TOTALLY hit me in the feels today; my Year 12 Music kiddies got me a bunch of flowers + made me a Mothers Day card! πŸ˜‚

And as they were leaving after Year 12 Musicianship they all yelled out, one by one, “Happy Mothers Day, Mama Kwokkie!”


And the card. Apparently I have to give it back on Monday morning so that the rest of my Year 12 kiddies can sign it. Love my crew. I am so lucky.Β 

Cleaning out my phone + from the vault: Class of 2017 get their revenge. πŸ˜‚

invincible? no, very very human!

I pulled out a white hair this morning and discovered that it was going β€œback to black” (reference totally intended 😁) at the root. 😎

I felt AWESOME! πŸ™Œ

And this feeling of invincibility lasted until approximately Lesson 2, Year 7 Prac. πŸ˜‚



gold-buzzer beautiful!
