Hope you are all well and had a fab weekend!
Today I thought I would do my first ‘Currently’ post. I always thought these posts were a fab thing to do at the beginning of a month but yet in my 2 plus years blogging I have yet to do one. Well that’s all change now and I think I will do them from now on around the beginning of each month! Means I can check in with you all, keep everyone from home updated on our goings on but also I like it as something to reflect on for me! Win win!
Wild by Cheryl Strayed – I bought it for the plane journey but never ended up reading it. Now I am determined to finish it by this time next month. I love reading, I just feel guilty whenever I pick up my book rather than doing something else. Crazy I know!
Hmm a tough one as I haven’t really listened to much since I have been here. Catching up on podcasts mostly. But after reading Lauren’s post over @Ihadabiglunch I think I might whack on a bit of Billy Joel later on – such a classic!
Kombucha! Every time I go to the store, I pick one up! I spent 2 years in Glasgow only being able to get it from Whole Foods and paying double the price that it is here so no shame! But once we move out of our temporary accommodation we are going to start brewing our own! Let the experiment commence!
You tube videos – whenever I need to laugh or smile I whip out my phone and pop on a video or two. David and I couldn’t stop last night – this one was our favourite – I love Terry Crews!
Dates – in particular these ones. I want to eat them all the time. Always. Even now….
So many things! Ok so we sent some of our belongings over from Scotland by air freight. These will be coming to us this week! Yay! But there was so much that we didn’t bring over and sold that we really do need now. Mostly kitchen electronics as we didn’t want to bring our UK ones and have to use adapters all the time – major fire hazard! Some would be excited about all this shopping… not me…
Apart from dates the food I am currently enjoying the most are the abundant fruit and veg we get from our farmers market – the best thing about switching from summer to winter? Citrus is in season! These mandarins are so amazing, sweet, juicy and fresh and ridiculously cheap!
Mostly H20 but am so looking forward to getting our french press out from our shipping boxes – instant decaf is basically unheard of here and I am drinking the nasty stuff. Spent the first week here on caffeine and it was not good (ok it was more like 2 weeks but I blame the nespresso machine and the sample pod pack that came with it!) even getting off one weeks worth of caffeine was hard!
Standing at the window watching the rain/ hail outside. Looks horrible! But first off, it is winter and secondly it will probably only last half an hour max!
(see the white lines on the pic? That’s the hail!)
Living in Australia. I feel very blessed and lucky to have this adventure.
That spring is here and that means summer is coming! Bring on the heat!
Current…Bane of existence
Having to buy a car. Yes we got one on Saturday like we had hoped. Yes it was technically a good deal. Yes I still squirm that we spent a chunk of money – I am soo not your ‘stereotypical woman’ who likes spending money! Save save save, that’s me! However as much of a ‘bane’ as it is, it will still be brilliant to have a car!
Ok you know what I said above about not being a stereotypical woman… scrap that… I’m addicted to the Australian version of The Bachelor! David is too (sorry for outing you there!). It’s awful, but that’s what makes it so great! Isn’t that the same with all cheesy TV!
Completing my Health Coach certification – still over the moon about my year at IIN.
I must admit, writing this has made me feel like a pretty lucky girl. Also feeling a bit sleepy… an early start and dark clouds outside will do that to ya!
Do you feel guilty when you take time out to read?
Anyone want to come and do all my appliance shopping for me? One condition, you had better get a bargain! Haha!
Do you like cheesy TV shows?
