Life Lately

Stealing this idea from Louise of Polka Spots and Freckle Dots and doing a ‘Life Lately’ post.


I traveled down to Sydney in April to visit family. It marked 2 years since my Sister and Mother passed. It’s hard to believe it’s been 2 years. It was amazing to see family and get to spend time with my Dad. I was only there a short time, but it was good for my soul.


Sick! Ugh, I thought I was just having a bad reaction to the Ozempic I started taking for my diabetes, but turns out I have gastro 🙁 It’s been hell. My mental health has been a roller coaster and I’m still in denial about my Mums passing.


Craig and I usually watch 2 episodes of TV a day together. One during dinner and one before bed. Currently, we’re watching Schitts Creek and Sanctuary. Both rewatches for me. We pepper in any weekly shows on the day they air.

PICARD. Oh my gosh! I don’t have words! This season was amazing and I really wish M was here to watch it. I loved seeing all the original characters back and it was so heartwarming, intense, cheesy but totally amazing.
This is my all-time favourite tv show and I haven’t given it a rewatch in ages. They are soooo young! I can’t believe it’s been over 20 years since it aired. I’m still in love with Jess.


Honesty, I listen to a lot of Taylor Swift. It’s just my default bop-along music. I have a playlist where I add any new music I like and keep that updated regularly, you can find that HERE.


I’ve not been in a huge game-playing mood. I go through stages. I have been logging in nearly every day to Disney’s Dreamlight Valley though. Gotta check out what Scrooge has to offer!
Spending lots of time outside with Toby. He loves it outside. He also loves going to the dog park. Look how big he is now! I should do an update post about my babies!


Nothing much. Owning a house is expensive. The main thing I’ve really been buying has been clothes at work. Which hey, I do enjoy! It is my favourite place to shop.
Oh! I got a new tattoo! I’ve been trying to get one every 6 months. Using my Christmas and Birthday money. I’ve been following Ella Mobbs‘s work for YEARS and when she announced she was doing another tattoo apprenticeship, I jumped and booked an appointment!

@natatreedarling Meet Bubbles! My newest addition thanks to the most awesome @Ella Mobbs (who I stole these videos off). I am very much in love, even if its at the starting to itch stage ? #tattoo #brisbanetattoo #merkitty #purrmaid ? Brackish


I may have started The Fourth Wing and couldn’t put it down. It was one of those books that drew me in and the next thing I know, it’s 6am. It was soooo good! So good! Go read it now! I’ve actually not been reading as much lately. I think i’ve been a bit disenchanted with reading after talking with people who don’t have aphantasia. I WISH I could envision things in my mind. It must be nice to SEE the story.

Whats new with you?
