Insta Update

It has been a while and whilst I keep going to write posts, something always goes wrong for me – internet breaks, holiday season gets the best of me or I succumb to a DVD marathon of all my new favourite TV shows!

So I thought I would ease myself back into blogging for 2014 with an Insta Update so you all can see what I have been doing in the most flattering of filters of course!

Three Things

Sometimes the world feels like it’s against you, you are running late for work, you get a ladder in your stockings whilst getting out of your car in a rush, you bang your knee on your draws as you rush to turn your computer on then you spill your coffee all over your new cream silk blouse before your 10am meeting!

It’s easy to indulge in negative mood but if you stop and think about three things that make you smile, it makes life so much easier – for you and everyone around you!

Three things making me smile today are:

A bunch of my favourite spring blooms

flowers in a mason jar

Fish & chips at the beach after work

A walk with my adoring husband – nothing makes me smile more than when I’m with him!

And if your still not smiling after that, just remember smiling creates fewer wrinkles!

Kicking off my Sydney Bucket List

On Saturday I finally started crossing off activities from my Sydney Bucket List that I posted about here. Anthony and I woke up early Saturday morning and drove across the bridge to complete the Coogee to Bondi coastal walk. It was approximately 14 km of steep stairs and narrow winding walkways that wrap around the shore line and boasted some spectacular scenery. I didn’t realise there were so many stairs, granted I didn’t bother to ask anyone, so my knee was feeling rather sorry for itself by the end of the walk. We managed complete the round trip in fairly good time and in one, slightly swollen, dehydrated and delirious piece.

Here are a few shots from the walk (including the obligatory breakfast shot):

The rest of the weekend was a bit of a right off and we spent it lounging around the apartment recovering from our adventure.

I have lived in Sydney all my life but I feel like there are so many activities that I take for granted here. With the warm spring weather upon us, I have decided to make my ultimate “Discover Sydney” bucket list of activities I want to complete, and not just say I am going to do it!

Here’s what made my Top 10:

  1. Sculptures by the Sea
  2. Picnic at the Royal Botanical Gardens
  3. Stand up paddle boarding
  4. Berowra to Brooklyn bushwalk
  5. Beach picnic at Patonga – apparently the best fish & chips around!
  6. Glamping at Cockatoo Island
  7. Discover some new secret small beaches around Sydney
  8. Bondi to Bronte walk
  9. The Three Sisters walk – ok so it’s a little outside Sydney but still a spectacular view
  10. The Open Air Cinema at Sydney Harbour

Things that make me smile

Sometimes we get so caught up in the dramas of life that we forget to take a moment and appreciate the small things that make us happy. Here are three things that are making me smile, today:

Insta-Update

So it has been a pretty average week for me as I have been home sick on the lounge the last few days. I’m starting to feel a little better so I thought I’d do a quick Insta-Update post.

Cheers
