Day 2783 - Do you have a hobby?

What is a hobby?


According to the dictionary a hobby is "an activity done regularly in one's leisure time for pleasure".

This is where I get confused as to whether or not I actually have any hobbies.  Or if perhaps my life is one big hobby!

Day 2779 - The Lovin Life Linky - the theme song edition

Do you have a theme song?



The other night the hubster and I were sitting in the hot tub listening to some tunes when "The Whole of the Moon" came on by The Waterboys.  You know the one?

Day 2778 - Wellness Wednesday - the foods to avoid before working out

There are too many lollies in our house! 


I have managed to bring up my kids without having lollies in my house.

Sure we have lollies at parties and special events, but we've never been one of those families to have lollies in the house just for the sake of having lollies in the house.

(How many times can one person use the world "lolly" in a single blog post?  I may be going for the record.)

Day 2777 - The autobiographies I'm reading right now

I'm a sucker for an autobiography.


Technically speaking one of these isn't actually an autobiography, but I do love a good book that is biographical in nature.  Particularly if the person has been consulted and is at least partly involved in the writing process.

Day 2776 - The post where I confess to knowing very little about geography

Confession:  I suck at geography


When it comes to geography I only ever did the minimum requirements at school.  I never chose it as an elective and can't even remember if/when I may have studied it as a subject on its own. Which means I'm not very good at knowing where places are in our world.

I've always been an avid reader but even reading doesn't help me piece together where each country sits on our planet.  Which is probably why I steer clear of books about spies, espionage and wars. The moment characters start hopping from country to country I'm completely lost and overwhelmed.  My brain shuts down. The book gets put back on the shelf never to be opened again.

Day 2773 - How to wear perfume if you are sensitive to smells

Do you wear perfume?



As a migraine sufferer I can be sensitive to smells.  Cigarette smoke, for example, can cause me an instant headache that leads to vomiting fairly quickly.  Walking through the original casinos in Fremont Street, Vegas (which don't have the good air control) had me racing to the nearest toilet with "head in the hands" pain and vomiting.

Being in a room full of dressed up ladies wearing their favourite scents can also cause me some significant nasal irritation.  Especially if those scents have been over sprayed.

Because of these sensitivities I don't wear much perfume.  I love the idea of perfume, but in practice it just doesn't bode well for me.

Day 2772 - The Lovin' Life Linky - The Board Games Edition

What's your favourite board game?


Today I thought I'd get back to basics and give you board and card games.  At least once a week we've been having family tournaments with Uno, Connect 4 and Trouble.

Day 2771 - Wellness Wednesday - The Fit Bit edition

I caved! 

I caved to peer group pressure and requested a Fitbit for Mothers Day.  Actually, it wasn't peer group pressure at all. It was more that I wanted to pressure myself to do my exercise by getting competitive with the people around me.  There is nothing that motivates me more than wanting to smash a few measurable goals and perhaps beat the person next to me in the process.

Day 2770 - It's time for a catch up

Let's have a cuppa ...


As I sit here wondering what the hell to blog about, I figured it might be time for a bit of a Deep Fried catch up.

So grab your cuppa - we might be here for a while.
