Day 3590 - Fit Fabulous and Slightly Fatigued - FIFTY

Ok, Ok, I'm finally getting the Fitness part of this FIFTY gig on the way


On Monday night I walked into the gym that sponsors our football team to sign up the lad and before I knew it I was lifting kettle bells, pushing some big weights contraption across the floor like a Rugby player and rowing my way on a carpet river to nowhere.

Day 3583 - The benefits of the "bathrobe"

How much do you love your dressing gown?

My dressing gown - you know it's loved when you find food stains on the lapel

During the week one of my bloggy pals shared a post about the dressing gown. Thanks for the inspo!

Anyway, it got me to thinking about my own dressing gown.

Day 3576 - The health benefits of ice-cream

Sometimes you just need to curl up in bed with a bucket of ice-cream


After project managing a major conference that saw me working 7am to 7pm for the last three days and much of last week, a girl can't be blamed for feeling exhausted.  So last night I came home and promptly went to bed with a bucket of ice-cream, a chick flick and a couple of Panadol.

Day 3569 - My 10 Favourite Things

Today's post is about the stuff I'm lovin' right now

My dusting glove - get two and you could create an Oscar the Grouch costume

Today I give you a completely random post about the things I'm lovin' right now.  A compilation of the stuff that is either making my life easier or making me feel warm and fuzzy.  Despite how fuzzy that glove is up there, it fits into the "life easier"category, not the latter.

Day 3562 - The downhill slide to fifty

Umm, what happened to Fit, Fabulous and Friggin' Fantastic at Fifty?

This is what 18 months worth of boot camp will get you.
You may recall I started this year with Making FIFTY Fun.  The blog was going to focus on Fabulous, Inspired, Fitness, Travel and Youthfulness.

See that photo up there? That was me at this EXACT point before 40 (according to a Facebook memory that popped into my feed yesterday).  That was me 10 weeks before this blog began as the "Diary of a Fit, Fabulous (yet slightly fatigued) 40 year old".

I had a vision that turning 50 would look like that. But it's not going to.

Day 3555 - Hamilton Island

Are you ready for my Island spam? 



When I was a teen, Hamilton Island seemed like the most exotic place on the planet. I remember seeing it in advertisements, and possibly as a prize on game shows and in the news. I'm not sure where and when exactly it piqued my interest but something inside me thought it was only for yacht owners and overly bronzed millionaires.

Day 3548 - Be back soon!

I'm taking a break ...
Google Translate was our friend
I will always treasure their carefully handwritten English letter of gratitude.
Just a tiny break from work, football, dogs, books and blogging. I think 7 days ought to do it.  See you back here next week!

In the meantime enjoy the pic of me with our Korean billets who lived with us this week during the Kanga Cup week here in Canberra. We had a lovely time and already miss our Korean daughters.

Right now as we board our flight for Hamilton Island for the regular Langdown July escape, I leave you with the Lovin' Life Linky.

What are you lovin' about life this week?

Day 3541 - How going back to work might be good for your soul

Hi ho, hi ho, it's back to work I go ...

Just being a poser and realising I only have the one pose!
So this is me typing at warp speed because I'm also needing to get ready for work while juggling my soccer communications stuff, deal with farting dogs, sleeping teens, whizzing up my smoothie, making lunches, freeing up space on my hard drive so I can actually get this darn computer to let me upload a photo, handling a coast house inquiry on Stayz and trying to work out what the sticky stuff is on the bottom of my slipper.

Day 3534 - 5 things to do with your bestie when you don't get to see each other very much

Do you have a long distance bestie?

Rugged up for our Coogee to Bondi Walk

Cathy and I met in 1989 when she came to Australia with 4H, a US group similar to Rural Youth here in Australia.  She and the group were "stranded" in Goulburn for a week so there was a call out to families to billet some teens for the weekend.  My dad volunteered and here we are 30 years later celebrating our 30 year "friendaversary".

Day 3527 - The National Bonsai and Penjing Collection

From big things little things grow


With the bestie in town we headed to the National Arboretum to check out the view and enjoy some fine dining at their Conservatory Restaurant. With such an incredible outlook over Canberra we wandered to their back deck area for the mandatory photo session which lead us past the National Bonsai and Penjing Collection.
