It’s my birthday!
I turn the grand old age of 32 this year and I cannot wait for the working day to end so I can start to celebrate!
It’s always hard being away from friends and family on days like these but I know David will make my evening super fun!
So today I want to take some time to relax and chill, so will get straight to my Friday Favourites!
Favourite…Moment – Signing the lease to our new apartment
Sorry I was so cryptic on last weeks Friday Favourites post but we were applying for an apartment that we really wanted and knew the outcome was out of our hands. Well we got it! We don’t move in until the 7th of September but I can’t wait. It’s in our favourite area of town!
Favourite…Feeling – Birthday excitement
Tonight we are heading to a bar that we have been meaning to visit for a long time. They do a whiskey tasting flight – 4 American whiskeys paired with… wait for it… bacon. Forget wine and cheese, this is calling my name!
Favourite…Purchase – Mandarins
Fresh, local, seasonal, the best thing about winter is citrus. And it’s in abundance right now!
Favourite…Food/Drink – Flat white
I love black coffee, I love cappuccinos but recently I have been getting into a Flat White. An Aussie creation (did you know the Aussies are known around the world for having the best coffee? I can attest to that!), that is prepared by pouring microfoam (steamed milk with small bubbles) over a double or single shot of espresso. It allows the coffee to shine first, milk coming in as a flavour to support it. So good!
Updates – 5TTT + Episode 37 of the Chase the Red Grape Podcast

Favourite… Moment of training – Helen time
I took 1 minute off my ‘Helen’ (3 rounds for time – 400m run, 21 kettle bell swings (American), 12 pull ups) time this week – pretty chuffed about that!
Weekend Plans – Saturday – Food shop, lunch out then hopefully off to see Dunkirk! Sunday – Pancakes and newspapers, coffee and podcasting!
Hope you have a fab weekend folks!
