Day 2608 - I used to salt chickens ...

What was your first job?

Is this chicken flicking me the bird?
I didn't work while I was at school, but the moment I finished the HSC I went to work for my local Charcoal Chicken shop.  I used to salt chickens.

That job helped cement a work ethic in me that has not wavered.

Day 2607 - Do your Christmas Decorations mean something to you?

I've decided to go "rustic".

Paper from IKEA and decorations from KMART

I made a decision this year that rather than go all glitter and bling this Christmas, I wanted to tone it back to an age when gifts were wrapped in brown paper.

I spotted the paper at IKEA and when I got home I realised if I was truly going to do this, I needed to do a decorations stock-take.

Day 2606 - When stepping up is the only thing left to do

I think I may have just volunteered for a new role. 


Confession: My husband isn't very happy with me.

Why?  Because in my current state of complete overload, I've put up my hand for another role.

If the truth be known, the idea of taking on another "job" is freaking me out too, but the thing is, I know I have the solution to a problem so I feel as though stepping up is the only thing left to do.

Day 2605 - Brown rice versus white rice

How to transition from white to brown and why it's important. 




We all know that the white carbs aren't necessarily the best choice for ageing positively, but what health benefits does brown rice have that white rice doesn't?

Day 2604 - What I love about summer - The Lovin' Life Linky

The day we've all been waiting for! 


While there are elements of the colder months that I adore (hot tubs, open fires, doona days and winter clothing) there's also a whole lot I could do without (the winter blues and the increased fibromyalgia pain).

For the most part my fam are all sun bunnies, therefore the first day of summer brings much rejoicing in our house.

Day 2603 - The Secret to getting ahead

A motivational quote for your Wednesday.


What have you been putting off?

Is there something you want to achieve but the idea scares you?

No matter who you are, or the what the goal looks like, there is one thing that separates the "doers" from the "gunnas". Simply taking that first step and going from there.

 Happy Wednesday!

Day 2602 - It's a deep fried update

What's been happening in your world lately?

Heading out to help Dad celebrate his birthday

So much has been happening but yet I still feel like not a lot is getting done.  You know the feeling.  All action action action, not a lot of results.

Right now I feel as though I'm on a rocking horse.  So much energy is being put into getting momentum and while you feel like you're moving the bloody thing still stays in the one spot.

Somehow I've got to find a way to get rid of the rockers and allow those legs to run.

Day 2601 - How to make a quick salsa salad

Need some fresh salad ideas?


We eat a lot of salad in our house.

Now that we have a vegetarian in the mix, the need to create salads that are not only nutritional but can also stand alone as a meal, is more important than ever.

One of the family favourites right now is "salsa salad" to either have on its own or served with meat.

Day 2600 - The measure of time

There's nothing like a birthday to make you reflect on this thing we call "time".


Birthdays have a habit of sneaking up on us. I mean, you know they're coming, but it's quite shocking just how quickly they arrive.

Whether it's your own or somebody else's.

Day 2599 - Does new stationery motivate and inspire you?

I love stationery.  Love, love, LOVE.


At uni I used to buy a new coloured note book and a bunch of coloured pens to motivate me to study.

Nothing has changed.  As I near the end of the year (and my 2016 BIG BOOK OF IDEAS) I find myself feeling exhausted at the sheer bulk of it all.
