There is no better time of year to pick up a book than a chilly Winter evening. Mug of tea in hand and a nanna blanket over my knees, I’ve spent many a Winter night (and afternoon mind you) with my head buried in a book. I love fiction novels, but lately I’ve been devouring “self help” and non fiction titles.
Today is my Saturday. I’m working Sunday evening which means technically I have an almost long weekend with Friday off. It’s one thing I love about shift work. Bonus time for fun things! And hanging out with my Nanna this morning for a coffee and some brunch. And taking time to sit back and take stock, one of my favourite things to do every now and then to just check in with where I’m at and what I’m prioritising at the time.
Hi friends! It’s been a while since I’ve checked in. Apologies on this end – the last few weeks have been crazy town since we got back from our trip to Singapore in March. Since then the renovations have continued on the house and I’ve started a new job part time! Plus the other 85433 things I get up to weekly!
Every morning on my way to work I without a doubt tune into Matt & Alex‘s breakfast show on Triple J. Besides the dose of cool new indie tunes and news updates, Matt and Alex love a good chat. Whatever the topic I find myself in stitches, like I’m in a conversation with mates. Naww.
Happy Friday! And the last Friday of the month, GAH! They say time goes faster as you get older but this is ridiculous guys. Christmas felt like yesterday!
I read a lot of blogs every week, and one I always tune into is that of “inbetweenie” fashionista Jo at iCurvy. She’s a babe who knows how to style her gorgeous curvy bod, and always looks effortlessly cool. Plus she rocks budget brands and those a little more highbrow and always looks like a million bucks.
And like that, it’s already February! I have a feeling this year will speed by like last year did. Insert sad face Emoji. I know time flies when you’re having fun, but man, it’s flying.
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.
Come Friday morning it’ll be 2016. I just can’t believe how fast the year has flown by! It’s been a busy and beautiful one, that is for sure. Of course we have had our ups and downs, but coming into the new year I just want to reflect and appreciate everything I do have in my life. And what a better time than the second last day of the year to share my top blog posts this year.
