Life lately...

I am in the middle of the mid-year slog, as are we all. You know the mid-year slog – the year is flying away from you and you're already behind, and all you can do is smile weakly and work your way through it and try not to think about the fact that the next public holiday is months away. I wouldn't feel too sorry for me though. I have two holidays already booked between now and then and a tentative weekend or two away snowboarding on top of that. Life's not that hard! And mid-year slog or no, I have been having a great time recently, as evidenced by my phone.

I told my friend my apartment was a total mess. She didn't believe me, so photographic proof was sent.

Lots of exercise, with a little promotion of my husband's cycling business along the way, hanging out with friends over drinks and games, food of course and unpacking…my stuff is here! And while having such a messy house was a reliable source of stress for a day or two there, it's now all worth it. My little apartment finally feels like mine - just in time for me to go hang in another little apartment half a world away.
