Blogging from Down Under

Archive for the month “October, 2013”

Striking another pose.

Those of you who have been reading my blog for a while may remember that not long after we moved Down Under we were conned offered a ‘once in a lifetime chance’ to have a really expensive family photo shoot, it was a rather stressful affair that ended up with a loss of many things including a lot of money and pretty much all of my dignity. It goes without saying then that it was an experience that we certainly won’t be repeating with that company.

Australia’s next top model, I certainly am not.

The Quintessential English town.

While we were back in the UK – (which feels so long ago now). We based ourselves mainly at husbs parents house as it was pretty central and made it slightly easier to try to galavant (I love that word) around the country to catch up with people.

I have just been looking through all of our pictures of the holiday and trying to put them into some sort of order and came across a few that I took while we were at the in-laws and it reminded me how lovely and historic and quintessentially ‘English’ this lovely little town is.

Back in the zone

We have been back for a week now and I am LOVING being back. After a week of getting over jet lag and not doing very much physical stuff and a month of being in the UK when I didn’t have time to think let alone exercise it is so good to be getting back into the swing of things again.

I am writing this sitting in the fresh air by the lake in my favourite spot having just completed my little exercise routine. Nothing too strenuous as I need to ease myself back in gently and don’t want to overdo it but just enough to get my heart pumping a bit, give my cheeks a rosy glow (that could also be due to the wind mind you – not my wind I should add, no the wind); and wake my underused little muscles up a bit.
