The things I have on repeat

 What do you return to over and over again?


"So no one told you life was gonna be this way
Your job's a joke, you're broke
Your love life's DOA
It's like you're always stuck in second gear
When it hasn't been your day, your week, your month
Or even your year, but

I'll be there for you"

This is just the beginning

Could hitting mid-life be a whole new beginning?


I watched Sir David Attenborough's Witness Statement this week which stirred many emotions for many reasons. Interestingly enough, the biggest emotion was hope. 

While I'm absolutely saddened by what we humans have done (and continue to do) to this planet, Sir Attenborough has given us a remedy and with the respect he's achieved over his lifetime, I am hopeful the powers that be will heed his advice and turn our destruction around. I am hopeful that we'll all heed his advice and turn our destruction around. 

But that's not why I'm writing this post. I'm writing this because David (I'm the third paragraph in, so we're old mates now) has given me hope. Not just about the environment, but about aging positively.

The Dining Table

 How often do you use your dining table?

Our current dining space

I must confess, we've gotten out of the habit of eating our family meals at the dining table. Despite the fact this gorgeous setting is constantly at the ready in our new home.

The first job

 What was your first job?


As my daughter makes her decision as to which job she's going to take to launch her career, and as my son starts his final year of school not yet certain of what track he'll take come December, I am finding myself reflecting on my own career paths and what my first income generating activities involved.

The Deep Fried Update

 What's happening in your world?


I jumped out of bed this morning thinking "it's blogging day!" and then realised I had absolutely no clue what to blog about. 

When in doubt, just ramble on about the stuff going on in your life, right? Right.

So here it is - the Deep Fried Update.

The story behind pre-loved furniture

Do you have unique furniture with its own story to tell?


People buy second-hand furniture all the time for various reasons. To save money, to save resources and reduce waste, it can be unique, it's often high quality, people feel it's healthier with less toxins, as a community gesture to help provide funds to the person selling it, and because pre-loved furniture usually has a story to tell.

CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet

Are you adding health and wellbeing to your goals this year?

Did you know that Australia's Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) pioneered the work into radioastronomy which ultimately became wifi? They also invented the iconic Aussie bug spray Aerogard, which was originally developed to protect Aussie soldiers from mosquitoes and malaria in the Pacific during the Second World War. It went mainstream when the Queen used it to successfully protect herself from flies during a golf game. 

These are just two of the major achievements that star in their top ten inventions

Another is the Total Wellbeing Diet.

The Resolutions

Do you do new year’s resolutions?

For much of my younger life I did the standard NY resolution thing where I created bucket list items and made hollow promises to myself about the year ahead which usually fell in a heap before January was out.

The well wishes

 Happy festive season everyone


As we hit the downhill slide to Christmas and get ready to say good riddance to 2020 I'd like to take this opportunity to say thankyou.

The Chelsea Tree

 How do you remember a loved one at Christmas?


I guess when someone passes there is shock and mourning and then there is a numbness, followed by a feeling that they may knock on your door at any time.  Then you remember they won't and the mourning sets in again.  The longer they're gone, the more we miss them.  

Certain times of the year can magnify the emotions and sense of loss.  When everyone is gathered but there's a notable absence. 

There are ways though that we can honour and remember those who have passed before us.
