High Five Friday #26

Spring has Sprung here in the land down under.  We actually had our first 35c / 95f day! In October!

I think this summer is going to be one seriously sizzling one.

This week unfortunately I have been struck down with a cold.  While that sucks, it has been my one and only sickness for the year, so I’m not going to complain about that.

Lots of vitamin C and Echinacea have helped that is for sure.

The other thing that has helped is sleep.  Thanks to my loving husband/partner he has allowed me to get the needed rest I need so I can get better.

That has meant that he has looked after the kids, made them breakfast / lunch / dinner, while I either 1. sleep or 2. work.

So lets get into the Five things I give a High Five to this Friday.

Five Pictures


  1. Chicken Egg Pie.  Except for the fact it’s more like a quiche than a pie. Either way it’s a winner in our house.
  2. My first run for the season in shorts.  Going to have to get use to it, but feels weird either way.
  3. The October Goodnessme Box hands down has to be my fav box so far. So many wonderful goodies.
  4. It was Tom’s birthday the other day.
  5. These whispy clouds just scream summer and beach to me.
