Day 1807 - Kind gestures

Random Acts of Kindness

After cheer training and parent/teacher interviews yesterday I came home to find a bag of frozen meals on my counter top. Darby had brought it home from school. What is it? I asked,  The school gave it to me because you are busy, he replied.

Day 1806 - Never say goodbye

Something to think about  ...

My bestie lives in the USA.  We don't get to see each other very much, but we're always there.  Just a phone call, Skype chat, Facebook PM or email away from each other.  When we do see each other we cry a lot when it's time to go. But one thing we've learned .... it's better not to say goodbye. Instead we just say "see ya later".

Why am I writing this today?  No reason, other than it just felt right.

Day 1805 - Coconut Oil

The health benefits of coconut oil

Image source
Two weeks ago Tahlia woke up the day before an important photo shoot with swollen eyes. The skin around them was dry and she was puffy and had a serious bout of golf ball action going on.  #panic.

I called a beautician friend who suggested anti-histamines and coconut oil.

Coconut oil?

Day 1804 - Dress Me Up Fashion Event #Canberra

Wanna sit front row in the New York Fashion Show?

Image Source - NY Times
Yeah, well, unless you're an A lister that'll probably never happen. BUT you could sit front row at the Sash & Belle "Dress Me Up" event this weekend to raise money for Ovarian Cancer Research.  Surely that's a close second?

Day 1803 - Olay Regenerist Complexion Corrector Product Review

As soon as you say "regenerist" I'm there!

The lovely PR people for Olay contacted me a couple of months ago to see if I might be interested in testing out the Olay Regenerist Complexion Corrector cream.  You know I'm already a fan of Olay long before the PR people knew me.  My appreciation for Olay just grows with every new product they put on the market.  Especially those in the Regenerist range (for Deep Fried peeps like me).

Day 1802 - Slow Saturday

Anybody else have a super slow Saturday?

Image source

After Husband spent the night riding the vomatron (we didn't get a lot of sleep - he was very sick) the entire family has gone into super slow Saturday mode.  I didn't get out of my PJs until almost midday, just in time for eyebrow appointment, to return some library books and to turn the dishwasher on.  Right now I'm getting myself ready to do a letterbox drop of Cheer Chick Charlie and "Dress Me Up" Fashion Show flyers.  Just a casual walk around a nearby suburb.  Not totally enthused by it I must say. I'll be the chick kicking pebbles as she walks slowly and aimlessly from letterbox to letterbox. But it has to be done. Dinner tonight may well be a  BBQ chook and a box of chips from the local take-away.  Anyone else drifting from minute to minute today?

Day 1801 - Working Out

Is your life a work out?

Image source
I don't know about you, but I'm often feeling very guilty about my lack of exercise.  I feel as though I never have time to work out and I worry about my Deep Fried health and fitness. Then it occurred to me, that perhaps I am working out sufficiently without actually "working out".  Perhaps life is already a work out?  Let's see ...

Day 1800 - Legal Deposit - National Library of Australia #authors

Yesterday the Cheer Chick Charlie series found a new home - at the National Library of Australia
It's taken me two years to get my books in there simply because I thought I had to be invited to put them there. I thought I had to wait until they became "something" and the National Library peeps went "who is this Leanne Shea Langdown - we must have her in our library".

Day 1798 - Captain America The Winter Soldier Give Away #DFFCaptain

Who'd like Captain America in their home?

Pick me, pick me, pick me! My all time favourite Marvel hero is Iron Man (bow to RDJ) but I must confess that Captain A comes a very close second.  Seriously, would you kick him out of bed if he farted?  Nope, me neither.
