Friday Favourites, 15 January

Another week into 2016 already, can you believe it? I hope you have all had a great week, mine has been largely uneventful and yet still really tiring.

Bulk cooking. I don’t know why this is a highlight because I don’t really like cooking that much, but I am pleased that I spent some time on Sunday whipping up a few meals for us to have during the week. I’ve done this a couple of weeks now and am finding it is so much easier coming home at night and just being able to grab a good, healthy meal out of the freezer rather than having to cook.

Beach time! Best part about summer of course is being able to soak up those lovely warm rays. Last Sunday I spent some time at the beach with a couple of girlfriends and it was so nice, relaxing and refreshing.


New wax. Ok this might be a bit of a weird one, but I started seeing a different beauty therapist and she uses a different kinda wax on my lady bits and it is sooo much better than what I had used on me before!

Dietician. I saw my dietician yesterday and she says that I’m doing well in her opinion, I’m starting to work out what works for me in terms of my eating and what will help me control it, so that was a really positive catch up.

Potential work trip. I found out this week that I might be headed over to Sydney for a work trip at the end of August for a conference which, if happens will be great as I might be able to sneak in a catch up with my brother while I’m there, so keep your fingers crossed!

How was your week? Let me know in the comments below what highlights you have to share.

Take care,


Photo An Hour, November 2015 – Average day around the house

As per usual I fell asleep before I could upload these photos from yesterday so the last photo is at 8:15pm. Yep I’m sad to say that I was so tired after a day of doing nothing that I fell asleep really early!

7:15am – Good morning from my little pooch!


8:15am – Doing some reading after eating my breakfast.


9:15am – Emptying out the bookcase that’s in the lounge. We wanted to get a new bookcase for the study to put all of our uni textbooks on, but we didn’t want to buy another cheapie that would hide away in the study. So instead I’m clearing out this cheapie to stick in the study and we’ll get a nice stained wood one for the lounge.


10:15am – Emptying out boxes of books and putting them in the bookcase. There’s still another box of textbooks to go, plus all of the printed out copies of assignments and lecture notes and stuff. Still not sure how to make them look nice on the shelf, I’m thinking maybe a couple of fancy looking boxes just so it looks a bit more tidy.


11:15am – The never-ending pile of laundry. This is the first of severalĀ loads that need to be done.


12:15pm – And because I needed to get out of the house, I did the grocery shopping.


1:15pm – Lunch and watching some TV.


2:15pm – It was at this point I realised I didn’t have to do any uni work and so I picked up a book…and promptly fell asleep.


3:15pm – Another attempt at reading the book for a little bit after my nap. It was so hard not to go back to sleep!


4:15pm – Time to stop being lazy for a bit and put some of the now dry washing away.


5:15pm – Colouring in…and I finished a page! Has anyone else tried this adult colouring in thing? I am oddly drawn to it…


6:15pm – More household chores… A load of dishes before I start cooking and make more dishes.


7:15pm – Another quick break to start a new colouring page and then over to cooking dinner…


8:15pm – Last picture of the night is of the beef stroganoff I made for dinner. After eating that, it didn’t take long for me to fall asleep on the couch and then stumble into bed.


I hope you all had a lovely weekend, let me know in the comments if you have anything special, or any photos you would like to share.

Take care,
