Life lesson 4: Dubious eateries with marsupial friends

Perhaps you would like to take heed of some life lessons, that I learnt the hard way, so that you don't have to.



Lesson 4: No matter how much a certain marsupialesque friend tries to convince you to eat at the worst eatery in your old hood because 'it's her favourite'; do not give in.

Life lessons with G.G. :lesson 2

Perhaps you would like to take heed of some life lessons, that I learnt the hard way, so that you don't have to.



Lesson 2: No matter how far away from the patch you wander, or how small your luggage allowance is to get to said destination, do not neglect to pack your wellies.

Life lessons with G.G.: Sausage roll and sandwich

Perhaps you would like to take heed of some life lessons, that I learnt the hard way, so that you don't have to.

Lesson 1:

No matter how hungry you think you are, a sausage roll and a toasted smoked chicken and provolone sandwich (even if you do leave a few crusts) are too much to eat for anyone at lunch, especially this one small girl.

Guest Post: Urban Remedy Cleanse and healthy choices when eating out

I have had 'healthy eating week' in mind for a while and thought it would be perfect to do at the start of winter, before I slump further into eating comforting favourites for three months straight.

I've done a juice cleanse before and had good results so decided to get back in touch with Urban Remedy Cleanses to see if they would like to guest post for me about the juices and about making healthier choices when eating out. I know this is a problem for many bloggers and people who are out and about at least a few nights a week on a constant basis. Although the canapes and champagne are usually exquisite, after a while, I just want to come home and eat a plate of steamed vegetables for a week.  This was especially true when I travelled a lot for work and would be away for weeks at a time eating out. It takes it's toll.

Healthy Eating: Guest post with Wellness Warrior Jess Ainscough

When I decided to do a 'healthy eating week' with guest bloggers, Jess Ainscough was definitely one girl I hoped would guest post for me. I've been following Jess via her blog and twitter. She has an amazing story and is very inspiring. So.. Who is Jess?

Guest Post: Tea time with May King Tea

As you all know, I'm a big fan of tea. I even hang out with some other crazy tea ladies sometimes.. We tend to somehow find each other. It turns out there are more than a few of us that just can't get enough of the precious-as-can-be liquid. Really, it's elementary. Tea is just so perfect for any occasion, whether to warm up or calm down, or just because you need a minute to sit and ponder this crazy thing called life.

Sadness Soup on Sunday

So, today the patch and I are bidding each other farewell for an unexpected while.

I feel a sort of extraordinary sadness about it all. When I return, the seasons will be changing again and the patch will be preparing for spring time instead of batoning down the hatches for winter.

Earthquake in The Sticks

Last night there was an earthquake here. Not even kidding.

My friend Pete popped this onto FB soon after the event. Say what you will, we do have a GSOH.
