Friday Favourites

Oh so many favourites for the past week, partly because I was on holidays, wonderful holidays! And not just holidays where I went somewhere else and did all the touristy stuff, but holidays where I got to spend some time at home as well.

Kangaroo Island. My partner and I went there for the Easter weekend, we did a few things each day, it was really jam packed and enjoyable. You can head over here and see more details from my travel diary if you like.

Shopping. First day back and still on holidays so I went and did a spot of shopping and bought a Wii U, the thing I like about Wii’s is all the movement that’s involved in game playing, especially when that game is Just Dance!

Monarto Zoo. I had my first volunteering “training” day at the zoo on Wednesday which was great, we were just doing a lot of planting and watering, but I also got shown essential things like how to get in, where the Mallee Minder base camp is, and took a tour down the “peninsula” to see the rhinos.

Rest day. Thursday was pretty much a rest day which was well needed after my first day of volunteer work. I am way too used to sitting at a desk and the day really killed my body. My knees ached from kneeling on them and oh my gosh my elbows felt like they had some sort of fiery arthritis!

Soap making. I’ve been wanting to try making home made products for a while now, and so today I went and bought a whole lot of supplies and tried to make soap for the very first time. I won’t know for a while yet whether or not it has worked, but I’ll let you know!

And how was your week? Are there any highlights you’d like to share?

Take care,

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,
