Friday’s Letters: Pull it together

Dear Body: Please pull yourself together. I simply do not have the time or energy for being sick. If I start treating you a little better can you please behave and not be so difficult? That would be really cool… Dear Electricity: I forget how much I need you and then we spend a whole night without power…that was fun. Thank god for all the random candles around the place that I keep buying and never using. Dear Callie: In this freezing weather your 5am cuddles are only slightly annoying and mainly just warm and comforting. Carry on. Also I am glad your meow has magically returned…that was weird. Dear $3 beers: You make it extremely hard to stay sensible at work drinks. Dear Edd: Your lemon and honey’s are the best. This is why I married you. (Okay so there may have been a couple other reasons as well). Still not sure why you married me though haha. Dear Amazing Race: Thanks for making my day off work slightly less unpleasant. I was sad when my favorite team left though 😦 Dear My Kitchen Rules: Speaking of reality tv, what the heck am I to do when your grand finale finishes on Monday and I am left with no tv show to make the first three days of the week slightly bearable? You can’t take over our TVs for what feels like a year and then just up and leave…seems a little selfish if you ask me. Dear Strawberry Pavlova: You are rather delicious. Welcome to the tea family. Dear Auckland: Sometimes I forget how lovely this little big city really is. I must make more of effort to truly explore and enjoy you. However your random cold snap was a bit of a shock to the system…a bit of warning is all I ask for.

April’s Random Favourites

Hi all!!
So here is my last late post for April, phew! I’ve been settling into the new job (which is exhausting) and I also had my graduation yesterday so life is a little chaotic haha. Here are a few random things that kept me occupied last month.

1. Wunderlist
This app has been a favourite for a while now so I thought I should mention it on here. This free iPhone/iPad app is a great way to make lists for pretty much everything….which in case you didn’t know I love to do! Nice interface and just a generally awesome way to create lists and keep life organised (or just slightly less chaotic in my case).

2. Survivor
I am not proud of my addiction to reality tv shows…but that doesn’t change the fact that they often are the highlight of my week. Survivor is my second favourite reality tv show and I have watched pretty much every season (not something I am particularly proud of guys…). Although I feel like this current season (fans vs favourites) isn’t a particularly strong one I am still enjoying every episode and will die cry when it soon finishes.

3. Whittaker’s Peanut Butter Chocolate
Peanut butter and chocolate are two of my favourite things so this heavenly bar of amazingness did not surprise me by being incredible. Seriously delicious and a must try for those lucky enough to have access to this awesome NZ chocolate company.

4. My Kitchen Rules
In case more evidence is needed for my insane attachment to Reality TV the highlight of Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday is this Australian cooking show. It’s entertaining, relaxing and a fun way to begin the week. This feels like it has been on for forever so who knows how. Will file when it eventually comes to an end.

5. Twinings Blackcurrent, Ginseng and Vanilla tea
The best thing about this cool autumn weather is the chance to drown myself in various herbal teas, and last month I tried this fruity flavour. I don’t notice the ginseng/vanilla very much as the blackcurrent is pretty strong but I do enjoy the warmth of the flavours when. Get home from work. Inexpensive too which always helps when you drink tea as much as I do!

That’s it for April, Have a magical May!!
