It feels good to be writing again. Last week was one of those weeks when I felt like I couldn’t even jot a sentence down. My mind wasn’t on the blog.
This weekend I was a bad blogger, but let’s set the scene first. I work full time, in a very stressy environment. And it’s shift work, with weird start and finish times. I’m in a relationship, which is very important (obviously) and besides the blog stuff I have friends and things I want to do in my time off. So this weekend I was a bad blogger
If you spend as much time on social media as I do, you would have seen that text “meme” floating around. The one that says… “Decided my 2016 starts again on February 1st… This was a trial month”
Whether it be a big thing or little thing, life tends to knock you around a bit every now and then. Shake you up. Make you think about the aspects of your day to day proceedings and puzzle you. Ideas are formed, questions to yourself are raised. The over thinking begins, perhaps a bit of self doubt.
I don’t know about you, but I used to struggle to get out of bed in the morning. I’d whinge, moan, shuffle around like a zombie and head into work feeling like the world was going to fall on my head. Negative much! But I soon realised if you start your day happy the rest will fall into place and it’ll make the day (and your life) easier for you, and those around you.
I’m writing this update from our new home friends. If you read my last life update my E was on the hunt for a new place, and here we are six weeks later in our “forever home”. What a whirlwind that was. More house stuff in a moment, but how have you all been lately? What is new? How beautiful is the sunshine? I’ve been pretty damn happy. A change is as good as a holiday, and being in our own home really is better than a holiday. E’s become an instant DIY queen. I don’t think I could count the amount of times we’ve visited Bunnings in the last couple of weeks. I even went alone to pick up a few things E had forgotten. Can I just say something – I can’t stand anything DIY (unless it’s beauty or jewellery making), building or handy man-ing. I do enjoy interior decorating and shopping for home wares, but that is as far as it goes on my end. E’s a machine though, we’ve only been …
I’m writing this post from the depths of Cambodia, and I know I’m supposed to be enjoying my vaycay but I just had to share with you all the big news I’ve been keeping secret for the last month! I’m not the best secret keeper when it comes to exciting new things, but I’ve been super sneaky with this one.
Colour brings a little bit of spark to my life. Whether it be a cute, bright print dress or a pop of red lipstick, colour is one of my ultimate tools for happiness. What is not to love about vibrancy and standing out? As the brilliant style blogger Kim-Marie aka Kimba Likes put it…“I firmly believe that colour makes me happy”. Her post How To Add Colour To Your Life is permanently bookmarked and if I’m ever feeling dull or flat it’s my go to. Another lass who knows colour, and lives colour is local Perth artist Linzi Carter.
I’m very grateful when I say this, I don’t get upset too often. I tend to get over things pretty quickly, and I can honestly say I don’t have a lot to complain about. We all have our days, and things are going to get you down in life, but I find myself trying my hardest to push past the bitterness and get back to the good stuff.
