Day 2655 - I think I may need to start drinking coffee

Am I at a disadvantage due to a lack of caffeine? 


My husband once said he felt we were behind the eight ball when midday struck because neither of us drink coffee.

I personally thought that made us super-human, but he genuinely felt we had an excuse for getting lethargic in the early afternoon when the rest of the world was buzzing.

Day 2654 - The post about why my daily blog posts kinda suck right now

Please be patient with me. 

If you're wondering why I'm not posting quite the same content as usual it's because I'm in "head down, bum up" mode with a fast approaching deadline. I've hardly touched my Deep Fried Instagram in the last few weeks because my Instagram time is being spent elsewhere.  What? No Instagram? Times really are tough.

I don't even have a photo to give you here on the blog today.  Shocking I know.

Quite frankly my bloggy mojo (blojo ... oops ... that sounds rude) is being sucked out of me and as a result my daily blog posts are crap.

I'm completely out of my comfort zone with the impending deadline and I'm struggling to get this project finished with any sort of speed.  It's one of those "slow and steady" assignments that has me sitting at my desk for hours with very little to show for it by the end of the day.

But I am getting there by degrees.

All will be revealed in February, but for now I ask you to be patient with me here on the blog.

That said, I've got to get back to it.  Head down. Bum up.

Happy Friday!

Day 2653 - The Lovin Life Linky - The Netflix edition

My name is Leanne and I'm a Netflixer 


About a year ago Chelsea signed onto her Netflix account at our house and never signed out. While it took the kids about 30 seconds after her departure to start trawling through the Netflix vault, it took me a good 9 months or more to tip toe in for a look-see.   Now it's quite possible I'm addicted.

Day 2652 - Wordless Wednesday

The bush walk


Over the last two days I had intended to be walking through Morton National Park with my parents and kids.  Instead I stayed home to attend the funeral of a friend's father.

With the wonders of technology I still get to walk with them via instant photos and as an added bonus I don't get the blisters, the sweat or the flies.

Plus I get to help a dear friend say goodbye.

Day 2651 - The health benefits of eggs

Do you eat eggs?


My vegetarian daughter has made a decision to eat eggs and dairy which I am very happy about.  Mainly because of that whole protein and calcium thing. She's never been much of an egg eater previously, but I'm happy to see her scrambling her breakfast each day.

I've written about the health benefits of eggs before, but I felt it fitting to add that new findings from the CSIRO show higher egg consumption is associated with having a better quality diet (according to Australian Women's Health Magazine January 2017).

Findings from the Health Diet Score suggest that we Aussies eat around 5 eggs a week which is good news given eggs are rich in protein and nutrients.

Do you eat eggs?

Fried, poached, hard boiled or scrambled?

Day 2650 - Making the most of our summer holidays

What have you been up to these school holidays? 


If I'm totally honest I'm usually pretty happy when the school holidays finish, the kids go back to school and our routine starts again. During my work-from-home days I like there to be order, everything in its place and everyone out of the house.

But this year the idea of the kids returning to school is sending me into a panic. I'm not ready for the school holidays to end.

Day 2649 - When the kids craft reappears

It's been a while since we've dived into the craft box.


I used to spend quite a bit of time with my children when they were little, doing craft, colouring, drawing and generally encouraging them to be creative.

Day 2648 - A Saturday Movie Date

Have you met my date?

This is me being Nanny Lee
We got our nice dresses on, curled our hair and put on some lippy and headed to see Disney's newest princess - Moana.

The perfect way to spend a Saturday.

Anybody else going on a date today?

Day 2647 - Disney Aladdin, A Whole New World - Sydney

Have you seen Aladdin yet?



For Christmas the kids and I received tickets to Aladdin.  Definitely one of our favourite presents.

We headed to Sydney this week to claim our gifts and I can quite honestly say (despite the little nap I took at the beginning) Aladdin is one of my favourite musicals to date.
