As some readers already know, I have two mums who I look up to completely and admire.  They are both amazing, strong women who have been through and survived so much in their lives.  Wars, boat journeys, love, loss - they have both been through so much already.  Fortunately for them, in recent years they have been able to enjoy some respite with the luxury of overseas holidays and adventures after having to look after us kids for so long and not needing to run around after us as much!

My dear mama just got back from a one month trip away where she visted family in the States and Canada and also undertook a whirlwind tour of some major US cities with some of her friends.  She had an amazing time and like with all mum's adventures, she has regaled me with stories of how cheap things are and how good the food is (especially the viet food!).  It isn't the first time she has been away on her own leaving papa T at home for extended periods of time :) **  

Cath, equally adventurous, is about to embark on an an amazing trip to India and fortunately for us will be stopping over in Singapore on her way home.  India is a place I am dying to get to so am very interested to hear what she thinks.

Here's to adventurous mums! xx

**Don't worry, papa T gets holidays too and the Mr and I are off to Vietnam with him, mum and Cath in November.

Music memories

I have the office to myself this afternoon so I can ditch the headphones and am turning up the music.

I used to be really up to date with music, read music blogs and keep up with new songs, artists, go to gigs.. but this has sort of faded out in the last few years. These days I seem to rely a lot on Spotify and their playlists and recommendations which is great for busy people!

But this afternoon I am feeling a bit nostalgic so reminiscing and playing some songs played at our wedding back in 2010 which is bringing back some beautiful memories.

Today I need to concentrate and write a briefing paper for my boss' boss.  Being in an open plan office it means putting on my headphones and turning on Spotify to listen to their Afternoon Acoustic playlist.  It's my go-to playlist and features this sweet little tune from John Mayer...


Back to blogging..

And I'm back... I have found myself with some more spare time up my sleeve recently and a friend suggested that I should throw myself back into blogging again so here I am!

It's crazy that it's been almost a year since my last post. 2015 was a bit of a pretty dramatic year for us on the health front so we are hoping for a lot less drama this year!

But it will be a big year with a new home purchase and us moving in mid-year.  So that means some renovating and decorating which I will hopefully post about here.  The pinning has already begun...!

In the meantime, we just enjoyed a lovely long Easter weekend at home and hosted some friends for lunch on Easter Saturday.  First time we made a lamb roast (and it turned out great to our delight) and we also pulled out the same hot cross buns recipe that I used last year which was a hit. I think this will become an annual Easter tradition.

I really do love cooking for family and friends so I think my next hosting challenge will b…
