Welcome 2014 Goodbye 2013


Well it's the new year again - 2014!!!!!

2013 was an interesting year. I learned many a new thing about myself, changed my whole food lifestyle, let go of some old baggage, got disheartened, got excited, got disappointed and let down, had health issue with my husband MJ and now need to change whole lifestyles. I will say one thing about 2013 - it was a year of unearthing, so I think 2014 will be a year of discovery. 

Each new year that arrives I like to write myself a list of goals/resolutions/intentions whatever you call them for the year ahead. I like to have something to strive towards, to achieve, to focus on. But before I get into them I want to reflect back on my resolutions for 2013 and see if I achieved them (see post here).

2013 resolutions:

Focus more on my relationship with MJ and don't let life and people destroy it: Yes I did more this year but I still let life and others damage it more than it should have been. We attack each other sometimes instead of clinging to one another. This still needs more focus in 2014.

Be more creative. Continue my blog adventure: I did continue my blog which I'm proud of, I joined Twitter this year and got some new readers and followers (I've now also joined Instagram)

Prepare myself for being a mum: Yes I changed my eating and I’m differently healthier than I use to be and we have started trying (fingers crossed)

Continue to rely on God: I have but I’ve had my moments of downfall. It’s a lifelong journey.

Give myself permission to be me - forget about what others say: To a point but I’m not really sure who I am actually

Photograph more: No I’ve photographed less this year sadly

Learn to love myself: I have a little, I’m more comfortable in my skin than ever before but I still have a long way to go.

Love/Support MJ more: Yes but I’ve been too hard at points on him. I need to improve on this. I will always love him though.

Continue to work on fitness: Yes I’ve kept up with Zumba and have started doing Yoga in the mornings before work. I still would like to improve more though.

Floss more: No I sucked at this

So I don’t think I’ve done too badly with 2013 I have achieved and missed also but I moved forward.

So now drum roll please

2014 Resolutions 
  • Continue focusing on my relationship with MJ and continue to love/support him
  • Work on my mental and physical health – learn to mediate.
  • Continue to rely on God
  • Try to discover who I am
  • Try to live a greener lifestyle
  • Continue on with and grow my blog
  • Embrace creativity in all forms
  • Spend more time with my niece and nephew (they are just so crazy and make life so wonderful)
  • Forgive
  • Let go of anger
  • Love more

I’m looking forward to heading into this New Year with a focus and just ready to surrender to life and live it. 2014 is going to be awesome.

What are your plans for this New Year? Are you excited?

A week of Christmas!!!!

Well Christmas is finally over in our household.  We had our 4th and final Christmas event on Saturday.
I love Christmas but after 5 events (including my birthday) in one week; you just want it over by the end of the week.
It was a great week, filled with family, yummy food, Skyping with my brother and of course presents. I got some lovely gifts this week. Money for new saucepans, gift voucher to my favourite cake decorating store, mad hatter topsy turvy 3 tier cake tin, vegan cookie book, teenage mutant ninja turtle socks, spa voucher (for a facial, hand/arm massage, nail file and paint), cookie cutter set (from my cute little niece and nephew), lovely glass patter and I'm still waiting on something small from my husband MJ as they didn't arrive in time from the post.
We had so much yummy food, I got to make this week our traditional yearly cookie tree, sweet and salty crunchy nut bar, my usual pasta salad (3 times for different events) and I tried out something very new – White Chocolate and Raspberry Trifle. It tasted so good, I wanted to try it out cause it had 3 elements I've never done before in it: Making jelly from scratch, ganache and mascarpone cream, plus I've never made a trifle before.  The recipe was so easy to follow – got to love Donna Hay recipes (online here). I've been told I'm might be requested to make it again someday.

Christmas Day was raining but that didn't stop us enjoying the day. Church was great in the morning, having all MJ’s family together was fantastic. Back at MJ’s aunty’s place, we played Apples to Apples and Simpsons Jeopardy. We also got to introduce Christmas to my brother-in-law’s girlfriend as they don’t celebrate Christmas in that part of China she is from.
My family Christmas on the 22nd and Boxing Day and the extended family on the 28th were spent in the pool with my niece and nephew. MJ taught my 4 year old nephew how to do flips into the pool and got to splash around with my almost 2 year old niece, while their mummy and daddy got to rest and relax.
I love catching up with family and seeing people you don’t see often and having a good ol laugh. Christmas can bring the best and worst out in people thankfully we only saw the good (except for one person but we won’t go there).
So another Christmas is over and a new year is only 2 sleeps away.

How did your Christmas go? Did some nice presents? Have a nice time with friends and family?

Why is there so much pressure on Christmas?

Why is there so much pressure on Christmas? Why do you have to have the right amount of gifts or food or decorations? Why do we have to show off everything to try and impress our family and friends?
I love Christmas but over the last few years it’s really starting to lose its shine.  Everyone seems to make it all about the presents, all about the food, all about the lights and decorations. 
Christmas is so much more than that. It’s a time to celebrate Jesus coming to earth as our Saviour, the ultimate gift (hence why we give presents). Share the good news with friends and family together having a great time.
If you don’t believe in Jesus, Christmas is still so special too. It’s a time to spend with loved ones and enjoy time together and celebrate life.
We have seem to have lost the meaning of Christmas somewhere in all the money being spent trying to outdo each other in who has the better gift. I almost want to start a boycott on presents, so we can just celebrate not compete.
This Christmas, try and focus on the real meaning of Christmas, yes presents are nice but they aren't the ultimate goal. Celebrate life, Jesus, family and everything that’s good in the world this Christmas.

My 29th birthday

Today is my 29th birthday!!!!!! Yeah and what a great day it has been.

I invited my family and MJ's family over for a bbq lunch. It was nice and relaxing, even though it was a hot day mid 30s (thankfully a little breeze came through) we still enjoyed ourselves.

I wanted a rainbow theme, so there were rainbow cookies, rainbow fruit and the best part a rainbow layer birthday cake. Since it was so hot I had to keep it in the freezer as the buttercream just kept melting off it.







My mum surprised me with a butterfly pinata (as the lady at work ran out of time to make me one) and we had a great time whacking the heck out of it. I managed to decapitate it's head off.


Tonight I will be eating leftovers and watching Carols in the Domain with MJ and my big brother in England will be calling me soon too.

I love birthdays - they are always so much fun. Plus you get presents too. I was given money (to go towards a new set of saucepans), chocolates, champagne, a greenhouse, plant pots, potting mix, some vegs to plant, how to cards on planting vegs, teenage mutant ninja turtle t-shirt, sparrow necklace, an owl necklace, electric chocolate melting pot, my traditional birthday doll (mum get's me a beautiful doll every year) and lots and lots of cuddles and kisses from my niece and nephew (that was the best gift).




I'm heading into the last years of my 20s and it's going to be a great year I just know it.

What a surprise!!!!

What a surprise. I logged onto my blog this afternoon to find out that the lovely Travelling Macs had nominated me for a blogging award called "Dragon's Loyalty Award".

20131215-205605.jpg

I hadn't heard of this award before, but what it is an encouragement award to followers of your blog that make visits and comments that encourage you to keep going on your blog journey also blogs that inspire you as well.

What you do is write 7 facts about yourself (see below) and then nominate 7 bloggers to pass the award onto (also see below). So I thought I would pass on the love and keep this award going around the blogosphere.

Fact 1. Growing up I was in love with Matthew Perry from the TV show Friends - oh my gosh I had so many pictures of him and everything. I even wanted to call one of my future kids Chandler.

Fact 2. I can't sing - at all - well I don't think I can - but I pretend I can and when I'm singing in the car or at home alone I pretend I'm on stage at a concert. Ha ha ha!!!!

Fact 3. I'm very tender/soft hearted and love romance, happy endings, cartoons, butterflies etc but I don't let on to many people as I've always been teased for it.

Fact 4. If I could be a mythical creature I would be a mermaid (but I don't think they are mythical really)

Fact 5. One of my favourite songs is "Walking on Sunshine" and if I hear it I'll dance around like an idiot.

Fact 6. Every year on my birthday I will wait until exactly 9:10am in the morning (cause that was the time I was born) and I'll run around the house yelling "IT'S MY BIRTHDAY, IT'S MY BIRTHDAY" and then I can start celebrating my birthday. Yes I never really grew up.

Fact 7. I love hugs, they are the best but no matter how good they are they aren't as good as a hug from my mum.

The blogs I would like to nominate and have enjoyed getting to know are:

Peppermint Bark


I love Christmas time, it's full of different recipes and treats that you don't have any other time of the year, there are also more no bake recipes too.

I follow a great blog called Retro Mummy and she posted a great little recipe for Peppermint bark (check it out here).

I decided to give it a go as a little Christmas present for some friends of mine. After somehow cooking the first batch of melted chocolate and having to reopen and remelt another packet. I was impressed, so were my friends (yeah - thankfully).

The recipe is so easy and you don't need an oven to make it either. So yummy and so simple - just the way I like it.

Reindeer Cupcakes


I made some yummy Reindeer Cupcakes the other day for a Christmas get together with some friends. They were meant to be Rudolph ones but I couldn't find jaffas anywhere.

They are so simple to make - chocolate cupcakes, chocolate butter cream, some pretzels for ears, writing gel for the facial features and a chocolate covered peanut for the nose. So simple and cute - plus very very yummy.

What Christmas baking have you been doing lately?

He won't be coming home tonight


This is a sad post, so if you don't want to be sad please stop reading now.

Today in Sydney there was a terrible car accident, one dead and many injured. The driver of the truck involved died at the scene. He won't be coming home tonight, he won't eat dinner with his family, he won't kiss his kids or wife goodnight or say "I love you" again. He's gone, no Christmas, no New Years, no birthdays or future trips. His journey is over, but his love ones is just starting.

It's tragic that life can end like that, in an instant, you don't know it's coming. Zac Young didn't know that day of surfing would be his last.

It really makes you think, what's important? what's my goal in life? do the ones I love know I love them?

Tonight I'll go to sleep praying for all those families affected by these tragic events this week and I'll make sure to tell my husband I love him and hold him that little bit tighter, cause we never know when the end will be.

So go and live life, take it, mould it, dance in it, experience it, love others, so when the end does arrive you know you did your best.

Makes you think.....


Ironically that statement makes you think. I over think things way too much, to the point where I turn something completely on it's head and create chaos. The chaos really only affects me, as the chaos is all inside my head.

The other day I got sent a lovely message, apparently I helped put a smile on someone's face without even knowing it. I was having a bad week last week and a bad weekend inside my head but by clicking like on a Facebook page and writing a comment I helped brighten someone's not so good day. Something as simple as a like button made someone smile, that bought me straight out of my own head and my own worries. I did my personal life mission (to make others smile) without even realising it. I created happiness inside sadness.

We all need to wake up and get out of our heads and stop thinking so much. Just be!!!! Just live!!!! Make others smile and you'll smile too.

Who can you make smile today?

A pain in the hand

What an interesting week this has been, what a pain in the hand (literally).

I had a chiropractic appointment on Monday just for a regular checkup. While I was there I mentioned I was getting some pins and needles in my left hand just in my ring finger and pinky. He checked it out and told me I'm in the early stages of carpel tunnel. Oh great - just what every data entry person wants to hear right? WRONG. This wasn't news I wanted to hear but sadly it was news I needed to hear.

Hearing I'm developing carpel tunnel has given me a serious kick up the butt - what do I want to do with my life. I can't keep processing data all day every day, it's damaging my health (plus I've been doing it for 2.5 years now).

Telling this news to work was not fun, it then involved having to get a clearance certificate from a doctor just so I can return to work. Then the doctor confirmed yes I do have it in my left wrist and now I need a CT scan (which was done today) and then a visit to a specialist to have a nerve conduction study done.

MJ and I have made the decision for me to drop my Thursdays to help with the pain while I start the long search of looking for a new job - not the best thing to be doing just before Christmas. Now I'm stuck with the dilemma again of what do I want to do? I'm sick of working in an office.

MJ asked me to work out what do I want to achieve in life. That was an interesting question and this is what I came up with.

"I would like to educate people on healthy achievable living. I'd like to educate them through my blog, in person, my own ebooks/books, recipe books, any way I can".

Now I just need to work out how I can do this and how can I make a living out of it. Can it be done? How can it be done? So many questions, not sure where to find answers.

Maybe this hand injury is a blessing in disguise as it's forcing me to re-evaluate my life and how I want to make my mark on this planet.

What do you want to achieve in life? Are you achieving it? If so how are going about it?

Making Lists

Lists - I'm such a list person - are you?

I'd be lost without some kind of note, list, notebook and don't get me started on how much I rely on my diary. I like to be organised and I hate forgetting things.

If you came to my house, you would find post-it notes, shopping lists, to-do lists everywhere.

I've got notebooks for journaling, blogging ideas, grateful diary, family medical history notebook, foods I can eat, recipe notes/reviews, notes from sermons at church and some full of just random thoughts like what would I spend a $20 million on.

Notebooks and lists help free my mind of clutter for a little while and then it just fills up with more but it does help keep a track of all the randomness that goes on.

Do you have notebooks? Are there to-do-list everywhere in your house?

Buzzed by

Wow what a week!!!!!

I haven't had a chance to get near this blog, life has been going full force, so much on, working 5.5 days (overtime again - 3 weeks in a row).

Charity dinner, Melbourne Cup, work, Orchestra, Ballet, Zumba, starting a new running routine (I know I've started running - what the????). So much happening. Life's been good, and yeah I'm coping - just - but doing well.

So I'll start at the beginning.

Last Saturday night I had a charity dinner to attend - never been to one before. The food was great and the entertainment was different. We had a comedic magician - his jokes weren't the greatest but he did get you sucked in with the magic. I still can't figure out how that massive real life duck appeared out of nowhere. I did get to dress up (what is cocktail wear?) - I love my green silk dress - even more so cause it only cost my 50c from an op shop sale.

My green silk dress
Sunday I got to hear a wonderful speaker talk about her life and how she overcame such hardships and can still praise God. She was amazing, very moving. I actually cried - which shocked me as I don't cry in public at all. 

Tuesday was Melbourne Cup day - another chance to get dress up. I didn't win on the horses but I did win the lucky door prize a $120 gift voucher for the restaurant we were at, so yeah!!! The food was so good, looking forward to going back now. 





Friday night this week we went to the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra at Angel Place and Saturday night (last night) the beautiful Australian Ballet at the Opera house. Two more times to get dressed up and spend time with my wonderful husband. 




Like I said early I've started running this week. Oh my gosh - I don't run - never have. But I saw the call to try from Seven Cherbs blog - Christmas Couch to 5K - and I decided why not. I even bought myself a new pair of sneakers to encourage me - plus I did really need a new pair. I've only been able to do one training season so far as my 2nd was meant to be today but it doesn't help when it rained all day (not complaining as it's been so dry lately we haven't seen rain in weeks). 

Love the colour - even better on special too
I'm not sure if I'll get much of my month of challenge done this month but oh well we'll see. 

So much going on but that's life, some weeks fast and others slow. This week coming a little slower, coffee with a friend on Tuesday, a day off on Thursday (yeah - craft day at home) and cake decorating Christmas party on Saturday. 

What has your week been like? Fast paced? Slow? Let me know.

A Blank Canvas

November is a new month, so a new month of challenge has started.

This month it's A Blank Canvas - My Creative Space


It's a different one to previous challenges but I'm excited to see what I come up with.

Head over to the Facebook group Pip Lincolne set up (click here) and join in some more fun.

Well first off - A Creative Space


My creative space would have to be my head - there is so much always going on up there and it never seems to shut off even when asleep (so many dreams). 

It's where my ideas come from, my craziness, my strangeness, my sense of being and who I am comes from up there. 

Yes it's messed up, untidy, all over the shot. It's confused, clear, muddled, insane even but it's my head. It's my creative space - it's ME!!!!

Where is your creative space? Please share.

Meltdown


Today I sit here with a sense of peace I didn't think was possible on Friday afternoon.

You see on Friday I had a mini meltdown of sorts. I felt so stressed, overwhelmed and pressured I crack, I was a mess, I was crying and making no sense when try to speak. I felt like I was running out of time to do all the things I wanted to do and achieve. I struggle with stress and anxiety and sometime it all just catches up on me and hits me across the back of the head with a hammer and sends me flying to the ground.

But like I said today I sit here with a sense of peace. How? Why?

I realised after I calmed down from my meltdown that I was responsible for being stressed, overwhelmed and was putting way too much pressure on myself. I was listening to too many people opinions and taking on what they thought was best. I was trying to achieve everything at once and wanting the results now and not waiting for later. I was placing my life, my heart and my happiness in the world's hands and not placing it my hands or God's hands.

Today I heard a wonderful speaker at an event speaking about the power of forgiveness, something I've been really struggling with myself lately. It moved me to tears and I don't cry in front of people (except close family). It was as if the message was written for me (God can be amazing in that way) and so I feel at peace right now.

I still need to work on a lot of things including forgiveness but I feel calm tonight knowing that I can and will get through this and shine brighter on the other side.

I can't achieve everything at once, life is a journey after all, but I'll get there and just let a few things go for the moment, step back and relax, for I will achieve all I've set out to achieve but in time and not today.

A cupcake experience

On Saturday one of my mum's friends was having a lunch with a few of us to celebrate her 70th birthday. I volunteered to bake some cupcakes and decorate them for her. All was going according to plan until the Wednesday when I was asked to work 4 hours overtime on the Saturday morning. OH NO!!!

What was I going to do? I was out on the Friday night at one my husband's work functions so there was no time to cook them then and no time on Saturday morning.

My husband MJ put his hand up and volunteered - hooray - um no - slight problem MJ has never cooked cupcakes before, he's not even sure when to turn a steak over on the grill. But I had no other choice, so I grilled him about how to do it and left strict instructions to follow.

I was nervous all morning at work but I was so surprised when I arrived home and they were not only edible but really really good. I was so proud I couldn't believe he done it except I noticed all the vanilla essence was gone and the poor thing had thought tsp stood for tablespoon, but thankfully it didn't make a difference.

He thought the mixture should have been a bit more dense not so light and fluffy, but he just keep going as he was following the recipe. No matter how many times I say it, MJ still thinks muffins and cupcakes are the same thing.

I quickly whipped up the butter-cream and decorated with some punch out rice paper butterflies and silver glitter. The birthday girl was happy - yeah!!!!

It's a big ad

Food and songs, food and catchy tunes, food and music go together very well. If they didn't ad campaigners would have a tough time selling their products.

One of my favourite ads would have to be the Carlton Draught "Big Ad" very clever indeed.

Make Peace with your plate - book review

There is a great blog out there called The Wellness Warrior by Jess Ainscough and it's all about healthy eating and lifestyle. I've been following for a few months now and just recently Jess released her first book. "Make Peace with Your Plate - Change your life one meal at a time".


I ordered it almost straight away from Bookworld and devoured every page when it arrived. I thought I'd share with you today my thoughts about it. 

Jess Ainscough use to be quite the party girl until at the age of 22 when she was diagnosed with a rare incurable cancer and was told the only way to prolong her life was to amputate her arm. That was not an option for Jess so she set about learning all she could about natural treatments. In this book she share her knowledge and contagious enthusiasm for healthy living - not just with food but with mindset too. 

I love how she describes this book in the introduction: "Achieving your ideal weight is a major part of it, but only because it's a superficial side effect of getting your insides in tiptop shape. My message is about wellness: whole body, complete, total, feel-so-good-you-feel-like-you're-leaving-a-trail-of-rainbow-sparkles-wherever-you-go wellness."

I love that, it's not about weight, yes that's part of getting healthy but it's about getting your insides right and the rest of you will shine. I know how much you need to do that, being wheat/dairy/sugar intolerant (yes I can still eat a little bit now and then and I don't let it stop me from baking) but since I've change most of my diet earlier this year I can tell you it works, you feel so great, your skin clears up, you sleep better, you don't spend most nights in the bathroom almost passing out from pain. 

Being a Wellness Warrior takes dedication and work but the benefits outweigh the negatives. The only negative really is that other want to be that healthy too so they pick on you to build themselves up, but that's nothing compared to the benefits of feeling so great and healthy.  

Jess suggests to read this book with an open mind and that not everything is for everyone (I'm not going to try the coffee enigmas) but we need to get back to a simpler concept of eating - go back to Mother Nature and stop eating so many chemical and fake foods. 

There are some delicious recipes inside - including a great chocolate milkshake and choc-goji brownies. I love the section entitled "All in your head" it's about going beyond our plates and getting into the heart of our eating habits, where so often it's our mindset and attitude that affects our health. It's filled with wonderful ideas and affirmations, getting it right in the head so you can get it right in the body.  

If you only read one book this year make it this one, it's a real life changer. 

(Note: This is not a sponsored/affiliate post I just love Jess' blog and really enjoyed the book and wanted to share it with you)

Cultural Meal gone wrong!!!

Wednesday night was meant to be a lovely "your exams/study are over for 3 months" special dinner for my husband MJ, well it turned out a little different then first planned.

I decided to cook a Moroccan dish from a recipe book I borrowed from the library called "Chicken Tagine with Apricots and CousCous".

I cooked it okay and it tasted nice but about half hour later, I was doubled over in stomach pains to the point I couldn't stand up straight and poor MJ felt really bloated and heavy (nice way to spend his first relaxing night in months).

Not sure what it could have been that made us so sick as we've eaten all those ingredients before but whatever it was didn't like me. 

Well lets just say we will not be eating that meal again anytime soon (well ever again).

Have you had any meals that have bitten you back?

Sandwiches aren't just for lunch anymore

How's your week going? It's Friday today, so I thought I'd share with you some inspiration for the weekend. 

Sandwiches - they bring back memories of school and peanut butter. But to one girl out there they bring on a whole new meaning. Meet the Midwest girl behind the blog 300 Sandwiches. 

300 Sandwiches is one girl’s mission to create and feed her darling boyfriend, who joked one day with her “You’re, like, 300 sandwiches away from an engagement ring.” So she took up his playful challenge and started her journey of 300 different sandwiches. 

I think it's a sweet idea and a nice playfulness between boyfriend and girlfriend, plus too there is some awesome recipes to be had. 
  • Sweet potato, black been and corn burgers with tomato jam
  • Grilled cheese and pear sandwich on olive bread
  • Grilled peach and cream cheese
  • Fried chicken sandwich with spicy slaw
  • Blondie ice-cream sandwiches
Head over today and find out for yourself (click here).
