How To Stop Arguing About Housework

2020-09-23T11:34:44+10:00

When I think about the amount of time I have spent arguing with my husband about housework, I could have done a lot of other things instead. Like doing the things I was complaining about. I was honestly tired of having the same conversations, about the same things all the time. And I never set out to stop arguing about housework. but then one day it just dawned on me. If something is important to me, then I should be the one to do it. Since that realisation, I have wiped down the kitchen bench at least once a day. [...]

How A Girls Night Changed My Life

2019-02-20T23:39:44+11:00

I hosted my first girls night in January 2018, and that first girls night changed my life. It was such a great night that I hosted another one in February. I guess you could say the rest is history. Relationships were a major focus for me in 2018, one of the main ones was with my friends. I wanted to catch up with them more often and know more about their day to day lives. We all get busy with work, family, and other commitments. We often don’t make time to catch up with those that have been there for us. [...]

Goals for 2019

2019-05-25T09:27:51+10:00

Once again this year I have decided not to set goals or resolutions, but pick a word, theme or phrase for the year. But again like last year I have chosen two themes for 2019. Around the middle of 2018, I decided to start thinking about what I wanted to accomplish in 2019. I have heard that the best time to set new goals for yourself is your birthday, rather than the start of the year. I think this makes it a bit obvious that my birthday is in the middle of the year. Health Health encompasses many things. Physical [...]

19 for 2019

2019-02-22T01:08:34+11:00

I first heard about 18 for 2018 on the Happier with Gretchen Rubin podcast. So 19 for 2019 is not a new concept to me. But the thought of achieving 19 things this year was quite daunting. I’ve struggled over the years to stick to any new years resolutions that I make. So in 2018, I decided to pick a theme for the year. Actually, I picked two. I’ve also picked two main themes to focus on in 2019, but there are a lot of one-off things that I want to do too. So here is my 19 for 2019 [...]

Hindsight at the end of 2018

2018-11-11T21:30:27+11:00

There is hindsight at the end of 2018. And of course, hindsight is always 20/20. But I think I did really well with my goals for the year. Rather than making a number of New Year's resolutions that ultimately fail, this year I decided to pick a theme. I actually picked two. My two themes were relationships and mise en place. Relationships The main relationships that I wanted to improve were my friendships, but I also wanted to become a bit closer with my extended family and colleagues. In January I started the tradition of the Squad Night off, which [...]

So Blessed: A Modern-Day Cliche

2019-02-25T19:31:15+11:00

I hate to use a modern-day cliche but sometimes I really do feel so blessed. Yesterday was certainly one of those days. Last night I had a chance to reflect a little. Thirteen years ago I had the chance to reconnect with some old family friends. Normally I would not have taken up that opportunity but I thought why the heck not? This group of family friends has grown, as other friends have been added, partners have been added and now kids have also been added into the mix. Some of these people I have known since I was born [...]

Quote Monday Redesign

2018-08-29T21:27:11+10:00

I have just completed a pretty big feat. I have just completed updating all of my old Quote Monday posts. Back in November, I decided that I should be using the same layout for all of my Quote Monday posts. By then I was already up to 110, so that meant I had to re-do 110 posts. It has taken eight months, but I am proud to say it is done. It wasn't easy. There were so many steps to make it right. Quote Monday Redesign The first thing I did was go through each and every Quote Monday post and [...]

Life Lessons From a 30-Year-Old

2018-11-06T21:20:51+11:00

Last year I turned 30, and in all that time I’ve learned quite a lot. Some of it important, like how to adult and some not so important, like the words to too many songs from the 90s. Most of these life lessons I learned in my 20s, but some are quite recent, like number 15. So here are my 30 life lessons from a 30-year-old. Have an outlet to relieve your frustrations; write, exercise, meditate etc. Prioritise by working out what is important to you. Stop spending your time on things you don’t enjoy. Hate a particular chore? Outsource it. [...]
