Weekend away



Life has been pretty crazy for us lately. We are slowly getting ready for the arrival of our girl, which means I am spending endless hours looking at nursery room inspirations, coming up with different ideas every 5 min and asking Julian if he can make this or that...However at this point I think I can safely say that after hours of discussions we have a pretty clear picture of what we want the room to look like. Apart from all baby related activities we are  both working full-time, actually Julian has been working time and a half so there is not much time left to do any of the fun stuff that apparently we ought to be doing before the baby arrives...

The secret is out...


I thought I was being very sneaky when I mentioned in my post from Ruatiti that next year we will have another member of the crew joining us for the annual camping trip, however I clearly underestimated you...so I guess there is nothing else left but to admit that yes, Julian and I are expecting our first baby :)

Last days of summer


Even though we officially entered the second month of autumn it still feels like summer around here. We still sleep with the fan on, summer dresses and shorts have not migrated to the bottom of my closet yet and beach trips continue to be on our agenda.

Ruatiti 2016


I am beginning to think that I have reached completely new levels of procrastination, because how else could I explain the fact that my last post was done back in October last year?! In my defence I must add though it has been extremely intense time for us on many fronts and last few months seem like one big blur. Anyway, we were both waiting for February as this was the time when our annual camping trip was scheduled and we were really looking forward to spending some quiet time with friends and family.

If you have nothing nice to say...


This topic is very close to my heart because I have been dealing with it well over 10 years and frankly I have had enough...I am naturally slim. I do not follow any diet. Yes, I try to eat healthy, I try to exercise but no matter what I do my weight stays the same and it has been the same for over a decade. I guess I have been blessed with good genes and fast metabolism. And while you may think it is pretty lucky because I can eat all the cakes, ice cream and chocolate in the world and still fit jeans I wore when I was 21, you could not be more wrong.
