Our Family Sings At Luke’s Work.
Hi lovely readers!
Here is a vlog of our family singing at Luke’s work place – a nursing home. Unfortunately I didn’t get the children singing on film because our camera ran out of space before they came on! Maybe next time! Don’t forget to subscribe to our channel while you are on YouTube.

Spending One On One Time With My Five Children – Vlog.
Hi lovely readers!
In this vlog I show you the butter cake that I love to make for the children.
I make the ‘Brown Gravy Stew’ from the new Trim Healthy Table cookbook.
I show you my ‘chore alarm.’
I unbox an order from Koorong bookstore and explain why I decided to get the children more meaningful gifts for Easter this year instead of just chocolate.
Lastly I take you on a mum and son date with almost 7 year old Arrow and share with you why I believe a good relationship with your children is so important.

A Day In The Life Of A Mum With Five Children Ages 8, 6, 5, 3 and 21 months. – Video!
Hi lovely readers!
I hope you are enjoying our new YouTube channel! After blogging for five years now, it’s been fun creating something a little different. (Originally I blogged at The Heart Of Our Home. )
You can click back on my old website if you would like to read some old posts, though, unfortunately I removed many articles when I was creating this website because I was going to put them all on here but it never happened.

Video: Catching the tram into the city.
Hi all my lovely readers. Wow it’s been a busy couple of months for me. End of school year craziness, Christmas, and 6 weeks of summer school holidays. I don’t actually like business. I know many who thrive off it. My personality type screams for peace, quiet and slow. Otherwise my head gets cluttered and I have a tendency to get overwhelmed, brain fog and shut down a little. However I am slowly learning how to cope when life gets busy – I just keep rolling and don’t give into the stress and hope that a quieter time is around the corner when I can think…and write. Daily rituals that I have embedded into my life in recent years have helped me to cope better with stress too such as cups of tea, walking in nature, talking regularly and deeply with my husband, lists, daily prayer and journaling.
We got back from a lovely holiday 6 days ago. We were very blessed to have the opportunity to stay in my uncle and auntie’s holiday house which happens to be right at the most popular sea side location in the city! Luke and I vlogged one day of our holiday where we caught the tram which goes from the coast all the way into the city. We had a great family day out while we walked to the museum, mall and a guitar shop. Luke edits and does all the graphic design for our Youtube channel, he is very talented in this area!
I hope you enjoy! Blessings, Peta xo

My non perfect weekly laundry routine that actually works! – Vlog!
Here’s some exciting news – I have begun a Youtube channel! You can now watch 2 Punks Had a Bunch Of Kids on Youtube! After being inspired by some other fellow mum Youtube vloggers – I decided to give it a go myself. And thankfully my husband is a Tech nerd and also has a Youtube channel Beard Tech, and has been teaching me how to edit videos and helped me set up my channel. It’s a work in progress, but I’m having so much fun!
In this vlog I demonstrate my weekly laundry routine.
This is the plan:
Monday: Wash dirty clothes from basket in boys room
Tuesday: Wash basket in Mine and Luke’s bedroom
Wednesday: Wash basket in girls room
Thursday: Washing basket in laundry room
Friday: Wash sheets and other linen.
Saturday: Wash boys school uniform.
I hang out the washing outside after lunch and fold the previous days dry washing straight off the line.
I then sort the washing into tubs – one tub for each child and one for me and Luke.
The older 3 children put away their own washing into their drawers and I put away the two little girls washing and mine and Luke’s.
It’s doesn’t always work out when I have a few busy days in a row where I have to do lots of running around to appointments and other errands. You’ll see in the video what happened on that particular week that threw me off course and why I needed to spend Saturday bringing it all back together again. I hope you enjoy getting a glimpse into our home.
