It is hard to believe that a year has past since my 28 before 27 list was made. As each year goes by and I get older, it’s funny how I still feel the same. I wonder if there is a time that I will wake up and feel old, or if I will always keep the feeling of disbelief that another year has passed.
As much as I love other people’s blog posts on positivity I never really thought to write one of my own, until I watched a TED talk and started implementing some changes in our lives: If you haven’t seen it yet, Shawn Anchor’s talk on ‘The Happy Secret to Better Work’ is well worth watching!
When I came across Fat Mum Slim’s January ‘Photo a Day’ Challenge, I thought it would be a fun little thing to participate in and a really good way to get in the habit of taking more photos with my phone. Though I usually have my dSLR on me, it is a nice reminder that I am constantly carrying a camera in my phone and it is so great to have a little collection of photos from the month gone by.
This week on Monday Munchies I don’t have a recipe to share, but rather I want o discuss how meal planning has changed the way we eat and shop.
Living off little to no income is a difficult feat, particularly while trying to do what is best for your body and general health and wellbeing. It seems to me that the most common challenge with my uni colleagues is how to eat healthy and nutritious food without spending an absolute fortune.
I have always wanted to learn how to sew. On trips to the op shop I tend to return with items that are perfect, except that they are just a little too big, or could use the hem shortened – and as much as I have good intentions of hand-sewing alterations, they sit in my cupboard unworn until the next closet clean out when they are donated back to charity.
Over Christmas we had the pleasure of puppy sitting Cosmo, Kris’ Aunty’s chihuahua. I have been loving the idea of one day getting a dog, so it was the perfect way to ‘try it out’ – with all the fun and very little responsibility.
Of course, being a chihuahua, Cosmo is very particular about most things in life. We thought that he might like a visit to the local dog beach, to go for a frolic in the sea and a run along the sand… but Cosmo had other ideas in mind.
