A Little Rosie…..

hi there2


Hey, how awesome to see you here on my blog!! Let me introduce myself.


My name is Rosie.  I am  originally from Scotland but live in NZ with my hubby and 2 kids. My Karate kid is almost 10 years old and he can talk the hind legs off a donkey.  He can be very funny, helpful and then other times I could quite happily throttle him.  Then I have Miss Highland Dancer who is 12 years old & is the complete opposite to her younger brother.  Although we are currently going through the ‘tweens’ stage with her, she is actually a sweet girl.

Me, well I am a qualified early childhood teacher and have been teaching for over 25 years.  My jobs as Nanny, Kindy Teacher and now Primary School teacher have enabled me to visit different parts of the world (hence the Kiwi hubby). I have been living in NZ for 12 years and absolutely love it here. I have made heaps of new friends and although I do get itchy feet every now and then. We are super lucky to have this neat wee corner of bliss in Hawkes Bay which we share with our two cats Tinsel & Itch (number 1 in Japanese).

I have a few hobbies which i have to fit in around my kids after school activities.  I love books, movies, music, food and some times I really do participate in some sort of fitness. My kids are busy and with me not getting any younger, I need to be able to keep up with them, therefore I do try!!


Honestly?!  I see so many people around me that just look unhappy, or are miserable with a job or just can’t seem to find an ‘upside’ in life so I have given myself the job of being your INSPIRATION.  That’s where I try to find the positive in daily life experiences.  Its often hard to do especially when we have so much going on but I thought I would share my experiences with you and perhaps we can change the world together!!


Watch this space for some of the things (good or bad) that happen in my life and how I make them seem less trivial by looking for the positives.  I love sharing positive quotes and I have a few places where you can look to get a little inspiration.  I will post ideas to help you once or twice a week.

Also your positive comments will mean the world to me so please drop me a line to say hi, say something sweet or even ask me a question>  Now please be aware that I may not know the answer but I will ask the Karate Kid because he knows everything……LOL.

Check out my social media links and follow me for some positive in your life. Lets get started!!  Have a great night, until next time, stay positive – kia kaha!!

Hey, I'm Rosie, originally from Scotland but live here in sunny NZ with my hubby and 2 kids. I am a lover of books, social media, music and sometimes fitness. I am also a full time primary teacher, full time mum, full time household manager and a full time wife. Life itself can actually be quite tough, challenging and sometimes throw a curve ball at us, but through all that we survive. My survival route is finding the positives in everything no matter how small or insignificant. My goal is to share the positives with whoever wants to listen. I can only tell you my story, its the only one I know so...... Welcome to Life's Rosie!!
