Day 2807 - The Lovin Life Linky - Blue Sky Day

Blue skies smilin' at me

Saying hi to my feathered friends as I wander around our local lake

I'm going to keep it simple this week and just say that I love a blue sky day.

That's it.  There's  nothing else.

Just blue sky ...

Day 2806 - Wellness Wednesday - the bike bum edition

Do you suffer from Bike Bum?

What is bike bum?

Well it's the term we Aussies use for being "saddle sore".  Basically it's the chafing and general bum soreness around your nether regions that's suffered from riding a bike.

Now I don't ride 100km or anything freaky.  But even a simple 5k ride will mean that the next time I sit on a bike I feel as though every bone in my bum is broken. I've written about it quite a bit in the past.

As I start to up my exercise and include regular bike riding, I thought it might be time to ask Professor Googs how to alleviate this unpleasant side effect.

Day 2805 - Whale watching at Jervis Bay

It's time to go wild. 

One of my bucket list items has been to go on a whale watching tour.  I've seen whales from a distance from cliff tops, but never close enough to actually feel their presence.

When my daughter put her pen down after her final year 12 exam last week, I wondered what we could do to celebrate.  With the whales currently wandering down the east coast of Australia and her forever love and support of all things marine, whale watching seemed like the most obvious choice. The fact that it's on my bucket list is simply a bonus.

Day 2804 - What was your first live concert?

If you're gonna do it, do it right ... 

I'll never forget my first concert.  My first REAL concert.

Forget the Leo Sayer concert I accompanied my parents to.  I'm talking about a concert I wanted to go to where the music pumped through my veins and the singers made me go weak at the knees.

Day 2800 - The Lovin Life Linky - The Winter Style File

My love affair with boots, jackets and scarves

As someone who gets the "winter blues", I focus very hard on the little things the colder months have to offer to perk me up.  Like wood fires. porridge, Ugg boots and doonas. We can safely add to this list the ease of winter clothing.

Day 2799 - Wellness Wednesday - The benefits of massage

Do you have regular massage?

Part of my wellness strategy over the last 25 years has included regular massage. In fact, I've known my massage therapist for longer than I've known my husband.  It's safe to say we've become good friends.

Day 2798 - What's your all time favourite ice-cream?

Where did all the chocolate chip go?

When I was a kid we usually had vanilla or choc-chip ice cream in the house.  Choc-chip was by far my fave.  

To make the vanilla more exciting I'd sprinkle Milo on top or if I was really lucky, there might be some Ice Magic lurking in the cupboard.
When it was on special Mum would bring home the totally decadent "toffee crunch".  Try as I might I can't find any reference to it via Professor Googs at all.  I remember it being in rectangular tub with a mix of vanilla and toffee flavours and little balls of chocolate coated biscuit scattered through it.
