Sunday Night

Watching an aimless movie, sitting on the lounge.

Only a few things I need to do to get by for the week ahead.


Kitchen’s messy, but manageable and clothes were sorted, earlier in the day when energy levels were high.  Now, I get up every 30 or 40 minutes to unload and reload the machine. When I refill my water bottle, I time it to the advertisements and spend five minutes in the kitchen, washing, wiping or packing,



I love my weekends, especially if they are productive in the garden or the house.

But this is my usual Sunday night.

The energy stores are reduced by the week and finally expended on Saturday’s commitments.



But Sundays are for family, the home.

The energy stores replenish for the week on Sundays. We see friends, build Lego, play dolls and get out.  Man and I talk on Sundays, have a drink together and plan for the next weekend.



But this is my usual Sunday night.

I wonder what you get up to on yours?



Have a wonderful week.

You look hot today, like a sunrise

I love summer.



I love that I can chuck on my flowing florals and Havaianas and call it an outfit.  I don’t care if my hem lines are a bit shorter than usual, or my fabric choices slightly more transparent than I’d normally wear.


I love that my main accessory is sunnies.



I like it when my freckles appear and my hair lightens a shade or two.  I embrace my summer bun coiffure and I don’t fight with my natural curl.






I don’t curse my dry summer skin or the close attention I pay to de-fuzzing and moisturising.



Dangers aside, I love when the sun beats down on my shoulders and when finding shade is such relief. I love it when the sun goes away but the heat lingers into the night.



I get a few pedis in the summer.  I wear colour in the summer.  I drink sav blanc in the summer.  I’m happier in the summer.



I eat better, stay more hydrated, rise earlier and feel healthier.

I come alive in the summer.



Like Rhonda.






This year my summer is starting earlier than usual, with a week up on the GC.



Yep, the Robos are heading north for a bit of fun in the Queensland sun.  A pre-summer escape for my Ketut and I, after fairly hectic and shitty episode in life.



Although I blog anonymously, if you notice a tired looking, floral-clad mother, with a couple of varicose veins on her right thigh and a bit of a winter muffin top, I invite you to crack a smile.



If could very well be me.



Linking up as always with my Lizards in The Lounge, this week over at Falling Face First.
