Day 2477 - Wordless Wednesday

Just a bunch of random stuff ...

Shopping for the new improved home office - this haul from Big W

Today I'm just giving you the bits and pieces. 

The jigsaw pieces that make up the picture of my life this week. 

Hope you can piece them together!

Day 2476 - How to make Zucchini Boats

Do you ever try out those video recipes you see on your Facebook feed?

This is  not a video - it's a screen shot of a video - just to completely confuse you

As a non-chef, non-foodie, I'm usually not into recipes. Why? Because it always looks so damn time consuming. A quick meal's a good meal and all that.

But these little 30 second videos that come through my Facebook feed make things look so darn easy.

So last night I gave the zucchini boats a try.

Day 2475 - Getting side tracked by IKEA

Today's post comes from a land of adult LEGO.


On Saturday I took a wander through my local Myer store and got totally inspired by their home wares displays.

I've been feeling a bit glum when it comes to my home.  We have a beautiful home, but it is dated.  Things are falling apart and it doesn't feel "fresh".

I planted a seed in the hubster's brain a few months back that this year is the year of new carpet.  Ours is threadbare.  We're aiming for that purchase in around October ...

Day 2474 - The Lovin' Life Linky - The Back Home Edition

Finally, a Sunday at home.



Looking back at my previous Lovin' Life Linky editions I noticed that I've had quite a bit of news to share. Each post had me blogging about a different location, big events and fab travel destinations.

My previous six Lovin' Life posts have come from the hospital, the Gold Coast, the South Coast and Vegas.  Prior to that you've had Aruba and Singapore.

I'm afraid there is absolutely nothing exciting, glamorous, news worthy or exotic about today's post.  However, it is brought to you from in front of an open fire. Does that count?

Day 2473 - Home Decorating Ideas

Today's post comes to you with a big dose of wishful thinking ...


I'm really feeling like over-hauling my home right now.  There's a hell of a lot of wishful thinking going on.

Today's trip to the mall was consumed with home decor envy.  So right here, right now, I'm starting my "vision board" for future home improvements.  There's so much inspo out there!

Today's post is 100% based on my happy-snappy wander through Myer.

Day 2472 - Flowers make you happy

Is there a science behind why flowers make us happy?


The other day my daughter's friends came over to visit her post-surgery and they did what many people do, they brought flowers.

She was happy to see her friends and delighted to receive the gift.

As I was arranging them into a vase I got to wondering, is there a science as to why flowers make us happy?

Day 2471 - Lego Bionicles #GIVEAWAY

Want some bionic in your life?

Image sourced from www.lego.com
Remember the bionic woman and the bionic man?  There are days I wish I was bionic. I mean I could get all big-headed and suggest that as a woman who wears a hundred different hats in a day without dropping any of them, that I am bionic ... or super human ... or something ... but the reality is I'm not. No matter how big my head, the hats wouldn't stay balanced anyway. Plus there's plenty of hat dropping ...

I love that kids get to feel super human.  That the world of kidnom allows them to escape into a world of super powers and bionicle strength.

Day 2470 - Why I'm loving the camera on the Samsung Galaxy

Welcome to Wordless Wednesday.


So today is the day we share photos instead of words.  But as you know, I am NEVER wordless, so you'll have to put up with some chatter around the edges of my Wednesday.

It's no secret that I am loving my new Samsung Galaxy phone (it's new but I've actually got the 6 not the 7 because I'm cheap like that).

One of the reasons I love it so much is because of the camera.

Day 2469 - Comfort Food

What foods do you turn to?



I was reading an article the other day about comfort food and how it can boost serotonin levels.

It got me to thinking about what my comfort food is.  To be honest I didn't have to think for long.  The answer is the same as it was when I as a teen: Lamb chops, mash and veg.

Day 2468 - Bringing Joy to Monday

Do you get Mondayitis?

I don't recall ever having Mondayitis. Oh actually, I think I used to get it as a kid having to go to school, but never in the workplace.  Why? Because I chose not to.

The secret to avoiding the Monday blues is to love what you do!

And if the thing you do doesn't bring you joy, then find a way to bring joy to it.
