Day 3500 - The things I'm looking forward to

We all need something to look forward to.

The city view from the Novotel Sydney where I'll spend two nights with the bestie

I'm finding it weirdly difficult to get out of bed of a morning.  Is it the Canberra cold? Is it my current medication? Is it the hug I was given from friends?

It's none of the above.  This has been creeping up on me for months.  I'm not used to it because I was always that girl that launched out of bed at 5.00am with much enthusiasm to seize the day.  I don't feel much like seizing anything right now. That bothers me.

Day 3493 - Hugs are the best form of therapy - even if they're not actually hugs

Did you know you could hug someone without actually being in their presence?

A card I received from some members of my village
Last week a great big box arrived at the front door and it was heavy.  It was addressed to me but because I couldn't carry it up the stairs I left it there thinking the hubster could carry it for me.

Day 3486 - A Guest Post by Denyse Whelan

Today I hand the blog over to this lady ...

Our in real life catch up last October
As per my post of last week, sometimes it takes a village. There are different villages from which we can rely on in life.  There's our family, our different pockets of real life friends, our colleagues and then there is the online villages that we bloggers create which we often refer to as our "tribe".

Denyse is part of the tribe that forms my online village. I'm not having the greatest week, so instead of being a sad sack on this Lovin' Life Thursday Denyse offered to take over Deep Fried Fruit for the day.  Thanks Denyse!

Denyse writes about how she has created her online village through blog link ups.

Over to you Denyse ...

Day 3479 - The princess birthday

This little lady celebrates another year of life today 


Monday as I picked her up from school she proudly announced it was only 3 sleeps until her birthday.  But then she wondered, was it actually 5 sleeps because her party was on Saturday?

I assured her it was 3 sleeps until her birthday but birthdays last a few days so that you can celebrate properly.   I then whispered that birthdays last a week at my house so we might continue to celebrate for a few extra days next week as well ... including the extra birthday "party" afternoon tea at our house Sunday ... but don't tell anyone.

Day 3472 - ANZAC Day 2019

Today we acknowledge those who fought for us and continue to serve

The Battle of Lone Pine

Last year the lad had to create an exhibit for Year 9 SOSE depicting something from World War I.  After a visit to the War Memorial he chose to recreate their Battle of Lone Pine diorama.

Day 3465 - The Easter Edition

Happy Easter!


Easter is quite an interesting time of year.  Whether you participate in the religious side or not, the Easter holidays in themselves are quite the topic of conversation.

Water cooler talk this year is how one can maximise their holiday potential, getting 10 days off and only giving up 3 vacation days.

Day 3458 - Dogs and clothes

Where do you stand on dogs wearing clothes?

The Instagram post that is the inspiration for today's blog post
My son is mortified that I dressed up Alfie in his soccer gear this week to post on the football club Instagram page. I'm the Communications Manager and the Instagram page is only 2 weeks old, so it's all in the name of getting more followers. Everyone loves a pooch pic right?

Anyway, it got me to thinking about dogs in clothes.

Day 3451 - A quick catch up on all things Deep Fried

What in the world has been going on?



Life.   That's what's been going on.  Which includes doing the washing which, as you know, is a never ending story.

Here's a snippet into the world of the Deep Fried over the last couple of weeks.

Day 2437 - Smelly boots

Nobody warned me about the smell of a teenage boys boots! 


I was walking down the hallway earlier this week wondering what the hell the smell could be.  It was a kind of damp musty smell with the distinct odour of wet sock.  

The type of smell you might experience if you were to open an old house after months of neglect. 

Or the smell you get in your laundry when you leave wet rags at the bottom of your washing basket.

Or the smell of a teenage boy's football boots.

Day 3430 - How a student assignment helped me refocus my business

Thanks Jess! 


As you know I've been flailing of late.  Surviving not thriving.  Which is so unlike me.  I've always had such good focus, especially when it comes to projects and my business.

Poor Cheer Chick Charlie has been suffering over the last 12-18 months, cast to the side as we focused on more important things.  Real things that suck away our creativity.

I've done a lot of naval gazing when it comes to the Charlie brand, and when my distributor went into liquidation and my dream of international domination went with it, I started to second guess my goals.
