What’s making me happy: August

What’s making me happy: August

August is one of those quintessential transition months in Wagga Wagga – spring-like weather will show up for a day or two at a time, but then is punctuated by the grimmest of wintry conditions.  The days are getting start to get longer, but the mornings will still often be frosty. In this month of contrasts, this is what’s been making me smile…

Lounge pant love

Lounge pant love

The further my pregnancy has progressed, the more my outfit choices have reflected comfort. Dresses and stretchy waistbands are now everyday staples, as anything that pulls too tightly across my bump has felt constricting and itchy.   A couple of months ago  I started looking for a few items that I could wear both during my hospital stay and in those first postpartum weeks, when I’ll no doubt be a little sore and tender and spending most of time at home.

After overwhelming success with Ripe branded maternity wear in the early part of my pregnancy, I turned to them again and in the process I think I’ve found the world’s comfiest lounge pants…

One of those was to Jervis Bay on the New South Wales South Coast, said to be home to some of the whitest sand beaches in the world…

Something to share: Geogussr

I loved playing games when I was a child – board games, guessing games and even a few PC based games as computers became a staple of everyday life.  However, after I left school most of the games suddenly stopped. It wasn’t until I really met Adam that games became a part of my life again. When we lived in England, he introduced me to game nights (dinner + post meal frivolities) and also to computer or mobile based games.  I knew the latter of these existed, but I’d never really been bothered to look into them.  The one day Adam showed me a geography based game…
