Current Status: On A Sunday Afternoon

Still keeping a low profile, and feeling emotional this week however I’ve had a good weekend so I’m grateful for that! Thought I would share happenings / current life status below, Listening to The Life of Pablo on repeat. There aren’t any “love” songs on there, so you don’t have to worry about any Adele induced emotions or inspired actions, which generally means no crying (YAY). Favourite song: Fade. Feeling proud of myself for going to the Gym. Twice this week (baby steps my friend). After wanting to achieve the perfect “summer body” since I was 16, figured why not get ahead of next year by starting now! Ask me next week if I’m still this excited by it because my non abs still hurt from a class I did about 3 days ago. Thinking about what my morning routine could be, but looking for one that won’t feel like one because once it does, it’s easy give up. So far mine resembles: wake up, get ready for work, walk dog, cuddles dog, feed dog, feel …

Contemplation, Week 4

Hello! And welcome to Week 4 of Contemplation. Thanks again to Desley from musings of a frequent flying scientist, for starting the Contemplation series. Each week Desley chooses a prompt from her Kikki.K A Sentence a Day Journal and invites us to share our response.

I miss that feeling! Write because one day (soon) I want to finish writing a book. But that will never happen unless I actually start writing something. Exercise mainly because I am tired of hearing myself complain about the way I look. …

Charmed,St Patricks Day

As it is just around the corner (tomorrow) I’ve been trying to find ideas to make it a fun and not too expensive affair. If you’re wanting to do the same, read on, BUT  first, who was St Patrick? Saint Patrick is the patron saint and national apostle of Ireland. St Patrick is credited with bringing Christianity to Ireland. Most of what is known about him comes from his two works; the Confessio, a spiritual autobiography, and his Epistola, a denunciation of British mistreatment of Irish Christians – StPatricksDay.com How was it celebrated in the past? Traditionally people celebrated by attending mass, thinking about the legacy of St Patrick and later commemorated with a meal. Nowadays, people either celebrate by dressing up and going on EPIC pub crawls. I did a few back at University (I miss those days) OR if you’re lucky enough to be in Dublin, by attending the annual Festival Parade. If staying at home away from the noise is more up your street, then why not try these Irish inspired deliciousness: …
