The next phase

Welcome to Phase 4 

Naval gazing while in iso
As I sit at home in iso (that's what the cool kids are calling COVID-19 isolation and we all know I'm a cool kid), I am having time to reflect.  I'm also having time to make some life choices regarding income generation.  Which has reminded me of the phases of my life so far.

The party mindset

Welcome to our socially distanced party

At this time of year we are usually celebrating both the hubster's and my mum's birthdays. Hubby's was at the start of the week, Mum's is tomorrow, so for years we have "met in the middle" for a joint celebration. But because we are being responsible social-distancers, we won't be doing that this week.

The Update

Where are we up to in this Deep Fried world of ours?


It's a strange place we live in. This world of ours is throwing challenges at us left, right and centre which is testing our resilience and testing our resolve.

Well, bring it on bitch!

The Quarantine Resort Essentials

Anybody having to go into self-quarantine yet?

Let's face it, the chances are we'll have to go into self-quarantine at some point in then next few months.  Whether it be because we've been exposed to CONVA-19, one of our family members have been exposed to it, a work colleague has been exposed to it, or (don't even go there) one of us actually has it.  Corona will likely have us trapped inside our houses soon.

The Adventures

Today I put the Youthful in FIFTY

Youthfulness is learning the art of selfies (and filters that smudge out the OMG forehead lines - I'll show you the non-filtered photo at the end of this post)

This turning 50 caper was always going to be an opportunity for me to create a festival feeling that would continue well through this 50th decade.

Due to the ill health (which is hopefully now on track) and the resulting lack of fitness, the whole Fit and Fabulous at Fifty thing was almost thrown out the window. Then I remembered my YYouthfulness.

The Diagnosis

Do you research your meds?

If you read this blog often you will recall I've been having a few medical tests due to symptoms that include gastrointestinal problems, swollen abdomen, pins and needles from the waist down, sweats, nausea, higher blood pressure, loss of coordination, feeling flushed, rapid heart rate, confusion and this very odd feeling of standing outside myself.

The Gift Voucher

7 reasons I think gift vouchers are a good idea.

I used to be anti-voucher. Not so much as a receiver, but as a giver. I thought it was a cop-out and not a good reflection of my love for the person on the receiving end.

But then I became deep fried and with age brings less need for "stuff" and more need for self care.

The colonoscopy

Aren't we lucky to have access to medical?

 Cancer Council

As I type this while drinking my Moviprep I'm chanting to myself "I'm so lucky I have this option, I'm so lucky I have this option, I'm so lucky I have this option."

The Art

Do you have art in your home?

How far is a light year? by Alexander Grahovsky
The first piece I purchased from Society6 to hang at our stairs
One of the great things about having a big home is that it means we have big walls.  What does one hang on big walls?   Art.
