Pearls of Happy Wisdom

I am seriously LMAO at the heading above. Here’s why…

Today I went for a killer run and by that I mean a run that was challenging, but loads of fun and very rewarding afterwards. I was by myself as I was running up this fabulous hill and then felt this dangly sensation from my ears!

Simple Words To “Make Your Day”


I biked to the cafe today… and had the most WONDERFUL experience as I waited at a set of lights. It’s common in New Zealand to say, “Have a nice day” (actually, it used to be more common than it is now)… but today was given this kind sentiment in such a way that it left me smiling a giggling the WHOLE WAY to the cafe.

My Garden Game: Like A Kid In Water

OK, now this is HILARIOUS! Well, to me it is… and I’m sure you’ll see the funny side of this too.

I have an awesome garden in my backyard. It’s full of cabbages, potatoes, broccoli, strawberries, gooseberries, coriander, parsley… and the list goes on (oh… I forgot about BEANS and PEAS). How could I forget the BEANS and PEAS??
