2020 Week 20 Sunday the day of…

Wow! Sunday comes around quickly that’s for sure. Along with daily life stuff, this week I have been enjoying partaking in one of fave activities, watching stuff on YouTube 🙂 So today I bring you the test kitchen at Bon Appetit! If you’ve never visited this channel, I can tell you it’s great. I’ve also…

2020 Week 19 Mother’s Day!

Today is Mother’s Day 🙂 Every year on this day I celebrate what being a mother means to me. I recall favourite memories and enjoy savouring them. I conduct an evaluation of sorts on my performance as a mother over the past year. Things like, I have been as kind as I can, have been…

2020 Week 18 Happy Days!

Unexpectedly, this week, online grocery shopping slots became available again!! To say I was excited is definitely downplaying it. Many of the limits on items have now been removed and that is also great. Now I can order the eight three litre milks we need for a week along with the eight loaves of bread….

2020 Week 17 All the things…

I was sitting out the front the other day, talking on the phone and a car pulled to a stop in front of the house. As I continued chatting, a man got out and started walking towards me carrying quite a large box. I asked my friend to hold on, as the courier asked if…

2020 Week 16 Strange Days

If nothing else, the current pandemic has shown how adaptable to necessary change most people can be. I tend to focus on the positives in everyday life. That doesn’t mean avoiding acknowledgement of the difficulties that come along. It’s more about making a conscious choice to favour the positive. The weather is changing here, from…

2020 Week 15 More of the same :)

What a strange week. Don’t get me wrong, it’s been good, but somehow I lost a day somewhere. It’s been like that week after Christmas and before New Year, where you don’t really know what you’re meant to be doing, or what day it is. I mean not much has changed for us as a…

2020 Week 14 Fabulous Food

I’ve been doing even more cooking than usual 🙂 Today I’ve made a pea and ham soup in my pressure cooker and I’ve also made some Bombay potatoes. I’m going to make a chicken and spinach curry for dinner, which we will have with rice. Mama would have arrived today, but is instead, safely ensconced…

2020 Week 13 Keep Calm & Carry On…

It seems we have arrived at a point in time where we understand what we need to do, and are beginning to be more confident in navigating the world around us during the current pandemic. It is all still a little surreal and bizarre, but I guess that is just the newness of seeing people…

2020 Week 12 History

Wow! What a week. Everywhere around the planet, people are united in surviving a common enemy. CoVid-19, one thing is guaranteed and that is, none of us will ever forget that name. This evening the Australian government has finally started rolling out some overdue measures to try and slow the spread of the virus and…

2020 Week 11 Adapting to Change

What a change a week or so makes. The whole world is united in facing the challenges presented by COVID-19. Not only is toilet paper unavailable, but many items are limited for purchase. Thats not really a huge problem because there is still an abundant supply of food for all and the limitations are in…
