Well, the world is almost in lockdown. People travelling internationally must self-isolate for 14 days upon return or some countries like Denmark have closed borders entirely. Tourist attractions in New York are closed, football games are over, gatherings of over 500 people in Australia have been cancelled and people have been encouraged to stay home.Continue reading “Coronavirus lockdown”
How intense has 2020 been – first the worst bushfires in ever, then the worst floods in ever- and now for the plague (no locusts, but a plague nonetheless). Except… It’s not the plague. And it’s not anywhere as bad as people think. Regardless, we all seem to love a bit of drama and sinceContinue reading “My coronavirus survival plan.. And it doesn’t involve toilet paper.”
I’m 40 weeks and 4 days pregnant and this afternoon I will be induced.
When we initially bought our home 3 years ago, we bought an acreage because we wanted to become self-sufficient. When I told my friend it’s so we can survive the armageddon when it comes she thought I was joking but considering the state of the climate I really don’t think it’s too far-fetched a prediction.Continue reading “Growing our own veg”
Well, I’m finally here. I’m 39 weeks and 5 days pregnant – in just 2 days I’ll be at my estimated due date. That kind of means nothing apparently, only 5% of babies come on their due date, but our little man’s date is special – 02.02.2020 – so it would be cool if heContinue reading “Coming up to my due date”
Meditation is a pretty big thing these days. Previously reserved for monks, yogis or hippies now you hear of even CEOs and billionaires swearing by it. Honestly, I’m not surprised – it’s certainly changed my life (and I don’t say that lightly).
I always knew that body size, shape and weight mattered to most women – I am one, after all, and so are most of my friends. I’ve also worked in the fitness industry as a personal trainer, yoga teacher and wellness coach for 9 years and the vast majority of women I worked with listedContinue reading “Body image in pregnancy”
Ooh I am SO inspired! This week I watched the Minimalism doco on Netflix (twice: watched it once then convinced Husband to watch it too) and it has motivated me to really get into Minimalism. We don’t buy much ‘stuff’ to begin with, but that’s not to say we don’t buy any. After all, twoContinue reading “Stuff, Minimalism & Marie Kondo”
Eek I am seriously not a fan of resolutions. Usually, because they’re just forgotten about and I think that every day is a new day to set resolutions for change if that’s what I want to do. But, in the spirit of the new year I’m setting some for a more environmentally conscious year. SoContinue reading “My Eco-Resolutions”
I had brekky with a good friend the other day, and of course our conversation moved to the current bushfire situation and the Australian Government’s response. She asked alot of questions and admitted she doesn’t pay much attention to the news (intentionally), but was feeling unsure as to whether she should after a friend ofContinue reading “To news or not to news?”
