Two months ago the big grown up (step) daughter received the shocking news that cancer number 5 had invaded her body and was lodged in her spine.  After having spent all year battling cancer 4, it was gut wrenching to find out a new one had appeared so quickly, let alone in a spot deemed inoperable.

Day 2946 - You think you're not making progress?

Do you ever feel like you're not moving forward?




The chances are you actually are.

I often feel like I'm standing still as an author.  That nothing is happening with the Cheer Chick Charlie series, mainly because the sales haven't gone through the roof (yet) and I'm still only found in Australian book stores. My vision is different to my current reality.

Day 2945 - The Mother Daughter Style Files - Wear All

Some Mother/Daughter styling fun

A few weeks ago when my girl came home from Sydney we had a mini photo shoot with some fab clothes sent to us from Wear All.

Wear All is a UK based online retailer offering the latest fashion trends at affordable prices.  It was established in 2012 and now ships to over 85 countries around the world, including Australia.

As with our previous mother/daughter collabs I tried to style each piece of clothing a few ways to suss out just how versatile each piece is.  Very cute clothes and just perfect for my girl's new life at Bondi Beach.

Day 2941 - The Lovin Life Linky - Arboretum Edition

Lunch with a view

The obligatory couple selfie (is there a filter that erases wrinkles?)
For those of you who follow me daily, you know that Tuesday was our wedding anniversary and meetaversary.  You can check that post out here.

Because we met at the racetrack on Melbourne Cup day we usually celebrate with some sort of Cup related activity.  But you'll recall that last year we had the post-race blues and with all that is going on in our life this year we decided to have a break from this Aussie (and Langdown) tradition.

Instead of going to the racetrack for our anniversaries, we opted for a nice lunch instead.  So we went to the Conservatory Restaurant at the National Arboretum.  Not a fascinator in sight!

Day 2940 - Wellness Wednesday - improve your memory with pink noise

Pink is the new white


It's possible that in your lifetime someone may have suggested "white noise" in regards to helping settle the mind and get good quality sleep.  Essentially white noise is a "consistent noise that comes out evenly across all hearable frequencies."  

The sound of static on the TV is an example of white noise.  So is the sound of a fan and the hissing of steam from an air purifier. 

Well, you can forget white! I've just learned that pink noise is even better.

Day 2939 - The Meetaversary and Wedding Anniversary all rolled into one #loveislove

Happy Meeta-wedding Anniversary Hubster! 


The Hubster and I met on Melbourne Cup day 23 years ago which makes today our meetaversary.  We also got married on 7 November which makes today our 19th wedding anniversary. It's not often the two fall on the same day.

It's definitely cause for a double celebration.

Oh, and today is the last day for people to get their Marriage Equality postal votes in.  The deadline is 6.00pm.  #loveislove #equality #support #voteyes.

Day 2934 - The Lovin Life Linky - The Canberra Edition

Canberra named Lonely Planet's third best city to visit

Photo borrowed from Wikepedia 
As I sit here at my desk and wonder what it is I'm lovin' most about life this week I look out the window at my view over the rooftops of my neighbours to the Brindabella Mountains in the distance.

The view is not quite as picturesque as the photo above taken from Mount Ainslie, but with leafy streets, well kept houses, abundant bird life and blue skies, what I see from my window is still pretty decent.

I am after all living in one of the best cities in the world.
