DAY 7: Heatwaves, Meltdowns & Storm Forecasts (30-Day Personal Blog Challenge)

I am wilting in this prolonged heat that Melbourne has been having. The next week is forecast to be a lot cooler though and I’m looking forward to it…minus the deluge of rain and lightning that’s about to hit us over the next few days! I get around by foot and public transport, so non-stop heavy

DAY 4: Engagement, Marriage & Eye Checkups (30-Day Personal Blog Challenge)

Tonight my poor laptop dropped from the desk onto the carpet and part of the screen shattered…along with my heart 😥 It still works but I have to put sticky tape on the edge that has literally shattered into a million pieces as glass dust comes off whenever I touch it. I now have to carry it

Today we went dumpster diving at our local market. What is dumpster diving? Exactly that. It gets its name from people who dive into dumpsters to rescue perfectly edible food or products that are in good condition and don’t deserve to head to the landfill to add to our pollution on earth. You may think only poor students

DAY 2: Fever, Eczema & Christmas Trees (30-Day Personal Blog Challenge)

Miss 4.5 has been running a fever today. She took some Panadol when she woke at 2am last night, but for some reason then refused it for the rest of the day, even though she usually loves taking it. We had a birthday part to attend in the middle of the day which meant Miss

DAY 1: Intro + Prep Orientation (30-Day Personal Blog Challenge)

Today I had this thought: Does anyone I personally know even blog anymore…about their personal lives? I remember the days where I used to read all my friend’s personal blogs. I myself started blogging around the time of college (goodness I can’t even exactly when now). It was the good ‘ol days of writing whatever

Sensory Activities: Dried Black Beans and Chickpeas

If you’re looking for a sensory activity for your child that is not too messy, try using dried black beans and dried chickpeas. Visually, the combination of the two colours are simply stunning!

How to Make Slime: 4 Easy DIY Slime Recipes to Try At Home
