*Happy* new year

*Happy* new year

I quite like Australian comedian Tim Minchin’s take on happiness. His advice is, “Don’t seek happiness. Happiness is like an orgasm: if you think about it too much, it goes away. Keep busy and aim to make someone else happy, and you might find you get some as a side effect”.

Resolutions just go in one year and out the other

The moral of the story is “just chill, you can’t do everything, you are not coconut oil”! In fact my mantra for this coming year is, “You can do anything, but you can’t do everything”

I can't feel my face... but I love it!

So, my journey to younger looking skin as I trialed the Environ Focus Care Youth+ range has come to an end. Do I feel any younger? No. (But then I got very little sleep last night thanks to a teething baby so that could have something to do with it!)

Running with a "mom-bod"

Running with a "mom-bod"

Starting to run after giving birth to two kids- although gratefully not at the same time, as my sister-in-law did with her twin boys- is a strange experience. It’s like finding yourself suddenly driving a very different vehicle.  You feel like saying, “There’s been a mix up, I didn’t order a station wagon, where can I upgrade to a sports model?”
