tippics I'm sure my neighbors hate them but I love my chimes, especially the bells that the we got in Thailand on our honeymoon. That's one plus for this windy weather because cycling in it kinda sucks and my hayfever is off the charts! #ReadyForRain #CantBelieveISaidThat 7h

tippics Trying a new spot in the attic to work in now that I'm done with the floor - as much as I love working at the kitchen table, the kids love sitting on my lap more so I have to be in 'hiding'! Probably a good thing to be 2 flights up from the fridge too. #tobedecorated #oneday 1d

tippics Contemplating the next floor painting job. Our bedroom. Ugh. Old houses are endless in their demands. I had wanted to paint the bedroom walls beforehand but it's been 6.5 years and we still haven't re-plastered them so I guess it's time to stop ignoring the floor and just do it already. 2d
  •   natplays Can you paint the walls any way without re plastering? ... And is it just me who likes the floors like this? ;) 2d
  •   tippics Yeah me too but this place is seriously driving me bonkers - it's only 120 years old though so I should be grateful that we don't still live in the one built in 1546! #thinkpositve @sarahshanahan_lifestyle 2d
  •   tippics No & probably not but I don't like. They're getting impossible to clean so just look dirty all the time. @natplays 2d
  •   sarahshanahan_lifestyle 1546??? Wow, i need to head over to Europe to get some history ..... Our's is 110 years old, that's enough for now!! 2d
  •   hegeinfrance It looks so goood @tippics 2d
  •   tippics Agreed! 110 is old enough. We left the really old one because we couldn't keep the mice out - I was actually convinced that they were keeping the place up! @sarahshanahan_lifestyle 2d
  •   tippics Thank you lovely @hegeinfrance 2d
  •   itsonwithyvonne Why not leave it like that? I like the worn look a lot 2d

tippics I'm in a funk of considerable proportions as I think through my Why around what my work in the world might be. The funk because I see a lot of people happy to spend their hard earned cash on things that they will never use (the act of shopping or having something new / cool is where the buzz comes from) BUT recoil at spending €100 for an hour of life changing work with me. Nope - they'd choose the new sneakers almost every time. Trust me, if you spent an hour with me, you wouldn't even want those new sneakers anymore & you'd be happy about it. BUT, I'm not here to sell myself or even the work of any coach - just to say that I'm questioning why I would choose to start a business where I have to convince clients that they need me & to pay me, when I could just go design some new shoes already. I'm a realist and an accountant so "fulfilling" work ain't gonna cut it anymore (or pay my mortgage). Hmm. Lots of thinking ahead but I expect good decisions to come out of it for the new chapter of my life. ️ One more for #itsamoodywednesday 2d
  •   tippics I know right? It's frustrating and after 10 years of it, I'm ready for a new way. @curatedisplay 2d
  •   curatedisplay Yes, I was at the almost 7 year point when I snapped. Something has to give. I don't miss a single part of it either, best move I ever made both mentally and financially. X 2d
  •   tippics Good to hear. Fingers crossed! @curatedisplay 2d
  •   sallyogilvie We struggle with it all the time. I think you have to keep looking for your people. The people out there who will value you for what you can offer! We also give those people something for nothing - word of mouth is everything! 2d
  •   sallyogilvie I'm going to say @curatedisplay that the industry is EXACTLY the same!!!!!! 2d
  •   natplays Listening. Following. Learning. Ps you're writing my instagram about - love what you wrote 2d
  •   tippics You're full of sage advice @sallyogilvie - how'd you get so clever? Thank you and it's been 10 years, so you know, time to get real with myself!!! 2d
  •   cyndiespiegel @tippics As coaches of any sort, we don't necessarily choose "easy" but instead we choose the path that pulls us. It's not always easy merging the passion work that we believe in with the real life stuff (money I.e.) but word of mouth, offering something accessible and helping others understand why they benefit from what you're offering...that makes all the difference, financially and emotionally. The world doesn't run on love alone, right?! But the clarity, that comes directly from your heart and soul, you'll get there. x 2d

tippics Comtemplating these old floors & whether they need another coat or if it's #goodenough. I think it is. Time for a beer! #screwperfection #oldfloorsareneverperfect 4d
  •   elvanht Looks perfectly imperfect to me, good job! Enjoy your beer 4d
  •   yglas 🏻 Proost 4d
  •   skandivis Love them just the way they are! 4d
  •   tippics Thanks Ladies! I've already done about 15 coats! (Not a perfectionist - at all! ) @elvanht @yglas @skandivis 2d

tippics Enjoying the #TREK Food Truck Festival here in #Utrecht but be warned - it'll cost you a pretty penny for EVERYTHING, including beer glasses & toilets. #foodtruck 5d
  •   wout010 Hey Trek was in Rotterdam last week. Got two of those beer glasses at home now 5d
  •   elvanht We were there yesterday, it was so crowded! 5d
  •   tippics I was a bit surprised that they charged €2,50 for the plastic beer glasses but also the same for the kids water cups! @wout010 5d
  •   wout010 I think that was to compensate the free entrance. Sort of. Anyway, I was very pleased to be at a token-free festival with actual money for a change! 5d
  •   tippics Yes true - hurrah for no silly tokens! I guess I just have to remember that it's a festival ... it just doesn't feel like it when it's in the local park at the end of your street! @wout010 4d

tippics My morning meditation was to try to bring some order to his teeny tiny LEGO pieces after his birthday gifts blowout, in this container that I painted yesterday - all of it in 1 container was driving me bonkers! The nicest part was when he came downstairs & said "sank you mummy" & gave me a full body hug! OK, enough procrastination - the attic stairs need more paint layers ... 5d

tippics Don't laugh - I know it was silly of me to buy a spiralizer but I kept thinking about healthy courgetti (is that a word?!). Anyway, the verdict is that it's messy and it's going back. Le sigh. I really should've known better! #kitchengadgetfail 1w
  •   sallyogilvie Www.house.com.au 1w
  •   tippics Thanks Sally! Will investigate. @sallyogilvie 1w
  •   blogger_bp Aw! Try it again first! I will use mine this week!! 1w
  •   blogsociety I've got one called Vegetti - it's small and so awesome! 1w
  •   tippics Yes! A few folk have suggested the Vegetti @blogsociety - must look into it! 1w
  •   adena__x I've been wanting one of these but they look fiddly so I'd probably get frustrated ! @tippics 4d
  •   tippics Yup - don't do it! @adena__x 4d
  •   itsonwithyvonne I had to laugh about this. My mom looooves to buy stuff of the tv. She bought a waffel cone maker once. Kept telling me that now we can make ice cream and waffles! Until those waffles didn't roll into cones & she had to clean it. She talked about buying this thing too. 2d

tippics I'm in a state of flux ... Another transition into a new path it would appear, as I unpack my life to try to understand why I am who I am and to get back to the child I was, before I was moulded by the people and experiences in my life, into the woman I am now. Not to change it but to understand. As I watch my two littlies, I am wary of quashing their very distinct personalities by trying to enforce rules based on my view of the world. Structure AND flexibility has always been my goal as a mother but sometimes it's easy to forget. I've caught myself saying "because I said so" a bit too often so it's time for a change. In this case, a change for the better I hope. But the point of this message (if you're still reading) is that I'm OK being in flux because I know that growth is my reward, so don't be afraid of change - living the same day over and over for 80 years is not a life in my book. 1w

tippics Time to switch out our winter wardrobes & #declutter as well. It's so easy using the "if it doesn't fit" rule for the kids but for me ... And, if only I could follow my own advice and let go of that wedding dress already ... One day ... #apartmentdiet #happyhouserules #seasonaledit 2w

  •   elvanht Brrr, really cold. 2w
  •   juanita_powell Cloud love 2w
  •   pier_dembech Contrails? Wake up! That are #chemtrails for geoingegneering 2w
  •   tippics Oh silly me @pier_dembech - I was thinking it was only the vapour from the passing passenger jet but now I know. Thank you. 2w
  •   pier_dembech @tippics you're wellcome. You can find a lot about difference between chem and contrails. Second one disappear after a while. If they stand....then are chemtrails. And we breath them... 2w
