Can you believe it’s Friday? And not just any Friday, the 1st of July!?
I know I talk about time flying A LOT but it really did feel like yesterday we were in Melbourne. Now the sun is coming up a little later, the light lasting a little longer in the evening and I see new flowers and leaves popping up everywhere. It’s like no season I have ever experienced!
Does it feel like July? Nope. Do I need to redefine what July is? Oh yeah. Living in a back to front world isn’t getting any easier. Maybe once I start to revisit the same months I have already experienced my body and mind will get in sync with the seasons. I really do hope so…
Until then, I have a good excuse for wanting to hibernate, drink mulled wine and eat mounds of sweet potato under a duvet. All while I look outside at the crystal clear blue skies…. Australia, you confuse me!
What I know for sure though are my Friday Favourites for this week! Let’s get on it!
Favourite… Moment – Finding Monopoly on sale
Having a wonder around the toy department at K Mart on Saturday (as you do) and I came across my favourite board game, on sale, and it’s never on sale! Heck yes! I love a good board game and we are stocking up on them again now we are in Australia. I do get a wee bit competitive though…cough cough… massive understatement…
Sometimes that ‘Friday Feeling’ just can’t be beaten. Got a weekend of fun ahead of me, some good coffee by my side and the sun is out – what more could you want!? (Ok maybe some wine…)
Favourite…Purchase – Mayvers Dark Roasted PB
This. Is. Amazing! I always want my PB to have a really strong taste of peanuts and due to the dark roasting process in making this PB, the flavour is on point. It really reminds me of the freshly ground PB I got in Melbourne. Thank you Kristy for recommending it to me, you were right!
Favourite…Food/Drink – La Zuppa Soups
Finding a range of ready made soups that a) are enough food and b) have an ingredients list that you would use yourself to make soup, is really difficult. That’s why finding these soups by La Zuppa was such a great find! They are ideal on a Saturday when we want something warm in our tummy, quickly after doing the weekly shop. I just add some leftover cooked chicken to it and serve it along side some corn chips and winner winner!
Favourite…Link – Buzzfeed – 22 Tweets About Families That Are Hilariously Real
This article is brilliant! And so true…!
Favourite…Workout – Accessory work
After every WOD we do some form of accessory work – building muscle, stretching, toning etc. I always really look forward to this because I can slow my body down after a tough WOD by keeping it moving whilst also focusing on set muscle groups and making them stronger. I enjoy it just as much as the WOD sometimes, especially when it includes some kettle bell work like farmers carries, stiff legged/ single leg deadlifts or high pulls.
Weekend Plans – Saturday – Farmers market and weekly shop, then off to ‘Nostalgia Box’ – a video game museum that has all the consoles from the past… that you can play with! As long as they have a game boy (with pokemon) and a playstation (with Crash Bandicoot 4) I will be happy… no pressure! Sunday – Pancakes and newspapers, beach walk, coffee, food prep and chill!
Have a great weekend, and a happy 4th of July to all my American friends – eat something red, white and blue for me!
What is your favourite board game?
On the flip side – what is your favourite video game?
If you could have a big bowl of soup what kind would it be?
