Did I Just Say … Happy Monday?

Welcome to Monday people!

I have clean fresh sheets on my bed and the old ones are already washed and hanging on the line.   A brand new box of goodies from Hello Fresh has been ordered to be delivered to my door, so I will have great new ingredients for tasty meals to cook this week.  I bought some fantastic new walking shoes (Skechers) yesterday and have already exercised on my leg exercise bike thingy!  I have completed my 10 minute guided mindfulness meditation with my Headspace App so I can begin the day with a clear and focussed mind.  I have my daily planner carefully filled out for the day and have already ticked off 2 of the 8 glasses of water that I am to drink each day.  Can you tell that I am having an absolutely awesome start to the day?

Have I told you that I have this swanky new website for my blog?  I have?  Well, I must have forgotten – it surely must have got lost in my super intelligent IT guru mind when I thought I was doing super intelligent and important IT bloggy things with my photos …. and I was actually


I’m sorry – I think I might have been shouting just now!  I believe that some of my older posts may be lacking in photos for awhile, until I can discover where they decided to go or until I can get in contact with the real super intelligent IT guru mind – BerlinBoy – who just happens to be BackpackingaroundAsiaBoy for the next 5 weeks!!  And we all know that’s going to be really easy!!!

Anyway, my wall garden is looking beautiful with about 8 of the plants flowering, in many different colours.  I’m enjoying reading Big Magic, the latest book by Elizabeth Gilbert, which is subtitled “Creative Living Beyond Fear” – seems appropriate don’t you think?  Soon my friend will be here for a cuppa and a catch up about our holidays.  And the cat is happily licking her bum!


Hopefully, my super intelligent IT mind will be back soon and I can take another shot at being the bloggy guru.

Meanwhile, what great stuff have you captured this happy Monday?

  1. Happy but hot Monday. Great way to start the day with a catch up with friends. Also managed to get washing and ironing up to date. Waiting for the temperature to drop to do a bit of exercise.

    1. Yes, catching up with friends makes for a great start to the week!
      You are a saint ironing in this weather, aircon on here!!
      Enjoy your evening walk, Ann.
