and I am cute too…. January 5, 2013

So it seems that today is the last #blog12daysxmas. I thought we had a day to go. I know I promised to write a post about what I read in 2012 but seriously, I didn’t keep track. That’s why I just signed up to goodreads now and started a 2013 shelf which I hope to […]

of meditation and exercise January 4, 2013

Today started a little inauspiciously. I woke up way too early and my brain clicked into gear immediately. My head was also a little woozy which I hate. I made myself do yoga breathing and this passed by the time it was time to get out of bed. I did my meditation before work and […]

reality sets in….and bites a little January 3, 2013

I had every good intention to write a post about what I read in 2012. But now it is evening and I am tired and would not do it justice. I also realised that I haven’t kept track of my reading in 2012 very well. I can however, write a post about the way my […]

Heigh Ho January 1, 2013

Well here we are at the 2nd of January and it’s time to go back to work. I feel strangely calm about the whole thing. Anyway, that’s boring talk. What happened yesterday? I sewed most of the afternoon. Then my Dad popped over to help me move my dining table into the music room where […]

a place for everything

I have spent the morning as I mean to continue the rest of 2013 – catching up with a friend in person! We worked out we hadn’t done this for the whole of 2012 and we live in the same town. I need to do much better this year with the whole work-life balance situation. […]

Things I’m not thinking about December 30, 2012

Last year I did a post of my resolutions for 2012. I don’t think I’ll do that this year. Things seem different. This time last year I was about to start a beautiful month of holidays including 10 days in Tasmania which were wonderful. This year I’m going back to work on Wednesday. Last year […]

Sorry Russell Crowe…..

I took myself to the movies this morning to see Les Miserables. I am always a bit concerned about going to see films of which I have heard good reviews. Inevitably, I am disappointed. Perhaps my standards are too high? Whatever. This post isn’t about me. It’s about Russell Crowe. First though let’s talk about […]

no sewing Saturday December 29, 2012

This morning saw me spending an extraordinary amount of money on new underwear. It was time and thank goodness for Boxing Day Sales. Then a coffee stop and a Spotlight stop where I bought some patchwork material and a length of dark green material that I will do something with. And then…..Ta DAAAA…the highlight of […]

My brain…she is tired December 26, 2012

I had every good intention to do work from today onwards. I have an ethics application to put together, a research project to start properly, some QA manual to keep writing and other delightful things. I had even made a bargain with myself that I would have “holidays” up until Boxing Day and then after […]

tablecloth material

Well I didn’t exactly have the Boxing Day Blues but I wasn’t up to much today. I did manage to get to Spotlight first thing and pick up some specials in the fabric department. It was really hot though and their aircon hadn’t really kicked in so I was feeling a little seedy by the […]
