Lists are my saviour

Glittery lights on the water

So, the last three days have been better.  And I attribute it to my list/check sheet.  Instead of buying a prettier product from a stationary store like Kikki K, I DIY’ed. Basically, each morning, I want to exercise, meditate and (ideally) write down my day’s goals.  Then in the evening, I want to floss (and …

Menu plan

So I’m trying to lose some weight, and a HUGE part of that is planning meals. All the below recipes are less than 300 per calories, as they come from the Michelle Bridges program I did last year and printed out, so I can’t ‘share’ them. The week past: Tuna Mornay – I liked it, …

Week 1 as “the boss”

Thai massage bliss

After massage tea

Massages in Phuket are about 300THB or AUD$9. The quality varies A LOT, between ‘stores’ but also between masseuses, as we both went to a place twice, and had totally different massages despite asking for the same thing! However, we walked past a ‘first world’ swanky style massage and spa place. So we took a …

Zorbing in Phuket – 12 in 2 list

Ocean views with adventure

At long last, after posting about my 12 in 2 goals here, here and here, and then finding out that the Gold Coast, QLD, Australia, closed down their zorbing, this looked like a goals I might just never get done! Alas, Phuket has what they call ‘Roller Ball’ which is zorbing – putting fully grown …

For the last 8 days, none of your sneaky internet people broke into my house and stole my laptop with a broken hinge OR my favourite blue glasses.  Thankful, really I am, cause you know, the internet these days, anything could happen whilst a gal and a guy are in Phuket, Thailand! So we flew …

Jeans with a new lease on life

Tearing strips off you

So, I had two pairs of holey jeans.  But I didn’t want to toss them in the bin, being 100% cotton and all. I did this with one pair: Oh and the ribbons are both reuse, and I love how they are the right tone for the usual jeans stitching I was inspired by this, …

Trying new stuff

S\itting around

So this weekend, I did something ‘cool’ that I didn’t even know existed, so it couldn’t even be on a bucket list!  It was sky yoga: It’s a small studio in the centre of the grungiest part of Sydney, near Central station. To get to the ‘Sky Lab’ you go past a graffiti wall – …

Limbo at work

cat limbo

I have accepted a new role, a promotion, and I’ve negotiated to start on Monday 13th April.  Initially we talked about 30th March, but with a Phuket holiday over the Easter weekend and into the next week, it made sense to hold off starting until I was ‘there for good’. So I have three weeks …

4 days to go!

2015 Random 002

The countdown is til I move back to my normal office.  It’s all very uncertain, as I’ve applied for another role (not at my normal office location, this time, south, but with a car as part of the package).  So I’m not sure if this will be a short term stop over or part of …
