July 52-in-52 update

We’re almost past the middle of the year – 6 months down. I have no idea where the time has gone! And hey, remember those 52 things I try to do every year? I’ve barely focused on them at all! I figured that if I did a bit of a check in that it might motivate me to get cracking on some more.

Back in April I had posted an update and there were 13/52 completed.

My gut feeling was that I wouldn’t be much further than that, and I was right. Two months on I’m at 18 completed, well short of halfway. But hey, it’s about making the time to get these done, right? [...]  read more

April 52-in-52 update

It’s been a bit of a crazy week for me this week – I had a lot on work-wise, and on Wednesday I spent the entire day at the zoo with Luca. By the time night rolled around I didn’t have time to spend in front of a screen. As a result I didn’t get to post my weigh in Wednesday post, and I’ve not had a chance to post it since.

I was going to write it now, but given the next one is due in 3 days, I figure I’ll combine them both together. To weigh-ins in one. Woo.

Instead I figured that tonight I’ll share an update on my 52 list and how the past 4 months have been. [...]  read more

Clean up Australia Day 2019

This year one of my 52 in 52 goals was to participate in Clean Up Australia Day 2019. It was one of those items that I decided on when looking at a recap on the news last year. I knew I would have a feel good moment from it, so onto the list it went!

My friends decided to join me, although unfortunately our first choice location wasn’t available after the terrible beach erosion from Cyclone Oma. We were the fourth team to work through this area this morning and we were still collecting this much rubbish and cigarette butts! [...]  read more

February update for the 2018 52-in-52 list

Another productive month this month with some more items to tick off the list! Right now as it stands I’ve completed 15 items, with 37 left to go.

Have a bath

Obviously this wasn’t a challenge for my hygiene; I have a shower every day. Ok, I’ll be totally honest; on rare days I don’t shower, but that’s because I have a young baby and it can be a challenge! But I do shower at least every second day, never longer.

No, this 52 was about taking some time out of the everyday and relaxing in the bath. Time for me. [...]  read more

2018 edition of 52 things in 52 weeks (52 in 52)

Every year I write a list of 52 things to complete in 52 weeks – the course of a year. This tradition has been going since 2008 – a huge 10 years now!

To explain the 52 in 52, it’s kind of like new year’s resolutions, but instead of making a resolve about a new habit, it’s a list of tasks. The aim is to take time out of every day life to do things that are out of the ordinary. Things like making time for friends and family, and most importantly, myself. It can be fun things, simple things, or necessary things. [...]  read more
