The Easter Weekend

 What did the Easter weekend look like to you?

It seems many Australians (at least those I associate with) tend to bugger off at Easter time for a long weekend adventure. Whether visiting relatives, camping, shacking up by the beach or heading off to the hills, we Aussies seem to use this religious event to explore whatever brings us the most joy and peace.

The Emojis

 What are your most used emojis?


For those who communicate with me regularly, it’s no secret that my most used emoji is the smiling face, closely followed by the laughing until you cry face, red heart and the good old-fashioned thumbs up.


I love the smiley face emoji so much I even use it in emails and Skype chats at work, which I somehow get away with. I'm known as the girl who ends her corro with smiley face, smiley face, smiley face.

The Commitment - rain, hail or shine

When it comes to commitment, are you a fair weather person?

Or are you there rain, hail or shine?

Commitment - my greatest strength and my greatest weakness.

The little things

 There's always something to love about life

A dawn walk around my neighbourhood

I created the Lovin Life theme for a Thursday as a place where we can "share our happys". Whether it be a moment, a picture, a conversation, some food, a product, a dress, a hobby, an event, a place, a memory or a person - it's all about reminding ourselves what's good in our world.

Scenic World

 Panoramic views of the world heritage listed Blue Mountains.

For Christmas my sister-in-law and I followed our new tradition of gifting the extended family an experience. Previously we've given jet boating in Sydney Harbour and zip-lining on Jamberoo Mountain, and this year it was Scenic World passes in the Blue Mountains.

A day in the life of Deep Fried Fruit

 Who wants to take a walk in my shoes for a day?

At work I write a newsletter that includes an "a day in the life of " feature where I give people an insight into a business team to see what a typical work day might look like. I've noticed a few bloggers doing it lately too, so figured I might as well give it a whirl. So today I give you "a day in the life of Deep Fried Fruit".

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.
