Lists are my saviour

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, …

Christmas photos

Christmas seems to be the time when ALL my creativity comes out! I was inspired by Pinterest for the below, but of course I can’t find the reference. Anyhow, with the BF’s help, and countless clear 3M hooks, we made this: Sadly the clear adhesive with 3M hooks isn’t as strong. Or the pressure on …

Halloween Party

The night before we took a week’s holiday in New Caledonia, I co-hosted a Halloween party with a friend (a lovely lovely friend) who I play water polo with.  I feel absolutely horrible that I left the party at a very respectful time (not even 11pm) and didn’t at all help with clean up 🙁 …
