Yoghurt is a staple in my diet. I often buy yoghurt and muesli for breakfast from the cafe near work or from the supermarket up the road. I was advised by a nutritionist to eat protein every meal when going through treatment because chemo reduces muscle mass and you need protein to help build it back up. High protein yoghurt was one of the recommendations … Continue reading Recycled Yoghurt Making!!!
I wrote most of this post last Monday but have not had time to finish, which really illustrates the point I was trying to make that you can read below….. I just clicked on my blog and saw the title of what I posted last weekend and laughed at how this weekend is the complete opposite. This weekend I worked till nearly midnight on Friday, and roughly 12 … Continue reading The Opposite Weekend
I have had such a lovely weekend trying to live a slower more intentional life and focusing on less plastic while I was doing it. I think having that focus somehow made it more of an adventure. I took Friday off because I have decided that life is about living and I should take advantage of the leave I have available to me. A long … Continue reading A Slow Weekend
A smart man once told me “done is better than perfect” and I am applying that extraordinarily powerful advice to all kinds of things. Plastic is one of them. Being more focused recently on trying to do my part to be better to the planet, when I heard from a blog called Less Waste Today that Plastic Free July was a thing, I figured I … Continue reading Plastic Free Epic Fail
You know how when you change cars you start to see the same type of car everywhere when you never noticed them before. Or you see a movie with an actor you decide you like and suddenly they are in every movie, TV show and voice over…I’m finding the plastic things is the same. I am now seeing plastic everywhere I didnt notice it before. So … Continue reading Back to Baking Bread

Apparently when word got out that she collected these notes, people started sending ones they found to her. She now has cases full of notes and decided to showcase some. It … Continue reading Lost Notes
I like the idea of us going on a journey together. I also like the ambiguity of the word “journey” here. When people talk about their journey, it may refer to a physical trip, a weekend away or a long anticipated holiday planned in meticulous detail (travel is high on my priority list right now, see other posts for details). It may also refer to … Continue reading Let’s take a journey together
I recently saw an sculpture of a massive tornado made out of the lids from take away coffe cups. It was in a foyer of a very flash building right next to the very nice coffee shop I used to visit a couple of times a day (and still would visit but I have moved offices). It really resonated with me. It occured to me … Continue reading Coffee Lid Tornado & Reducing Plastics
An invitation from amazing friends arrived by text… “Would you be interested in coming away for a weekend with us to stay in our special place”. YES!!! Any time spent with these friends is cherished. They are wonderful. I am extraordinarily lucky to have them in my life. On top of getting to hang out with them, this would involve eating delicious food, drinking gorgeous … Continue reading Canberra June 2019
Why would a girl who usually barely engages online, and in fact actively avoided it in the past, start a blog? Last year I had a little forced slow down which has given me some time to think about what is really important in life and what I want in mine. I have been doing a bit of research into what makes people happy. What … Continue reading I’m Helen. Nice to meet you!
