Hello March!

Haven Magazine - - Upfront -

The kids’ ex­tra-cur­ric­u­lar roster is well un­der­way and we have bro­ken our fam­ily rule of two sports per child this year. Yes, we are tack­ling two-tothree sports per child and with three kids – well, you do the math! Busy days! One is moan­ing she has no ‘me’ time (won­der where she gets that from!?) while the other two are lov­ing it. I am of­fi­cially a soc­cer mum now – plus gym­nas­tics, swim­ming, nip­pers and that’s just our sport­ing life (and I still haven’t quite got my own fit­ness rou­tine down yet!). Now I know that sounds like a big load to some and to oth­ers with chil­dren at elite sport­ing lev­els it’s not much at all, as they tackle up to 20 hours a week in one sport. This dis­par­ity sprouted this month’s fea­ture as we ‘Get sporty’ and talk to a crew of tal­ented lo­cal coaches who share their tips and in­sights on kids in sport. As our sum­mer glow fades into au­tumn, we talk new-sea­son fash­ion and what a de­light to have the uber tal­ented Nat Bass in our fash­ion pages this is­sue! We also get set for school hol­i­days (again!) so take some in­spo for ac­tiv­i­ties in our School’s Out guide and cal­en­dar plus, if you don’t al­ready get a weekly dose of haven in your in­box, join us by sign­ing up on our web­site. Thank you for all your up­lift­ing and sup­port­ive com­ments as we cel­e­brated FIVE years last month. We look for­ward to an amaz­ing next chap­ter. To guide us in be­ing the best we can be, we have cre­ated an on­line sur­vey and would be most ap­pre­cia­tive if you spared a few mo­ments to give us some feed­back (there is even a prize in it!). De­tails are on page 15.

Happy days!
