Getting into the swing of things

Published Categorized as Food, Life

It’s been over three months since The Boy and I returned from our big Eurotrip, and people keep asking me if I’ve gotten back into a normal routine. Between starting a new job, house-sitting, looking for a place of our own and eventually moving into our place, it’s been really hard to find a new ‘normal’ – things just keep changing! But now we’re pretty much moved in, and our weekends are becoming less dominated by home-improvement and unpacking.

I’m trying to develop good habits, which for me tend to be very tied to environments. These days my mornings begin with a 6am alarm, some quick yoga and stretches, a breakfast of fruit, nuts and yoghurt and the hour-long commute by public transport to work. I’m doing my best to make myself be productive when I get home at the end of the day, but with the sun setting so early and the nights getting colder most of the time all I want to do is curl up with a good book.

I’m still figuring out the best way to include blogging in my life, and what I want to write about. At the moment it’s just a lot of personal ramblings and photos of food, although I’m not so sure that’s a bad thing!

It might sound boring, finding and everyday routine, but the familiarity is comforting. I’m sure it won’t be long before I get the travel bug again and start finding this all a bit too monotonous, but right now I’m savouring the comforts of home.


  1. Personal ramblings are the best in my opinion!

    Those pomegranate seeds look amazing. I never realised how awesome they were until last year, but wow they are so annoying to peel.

    1. Haha I’m glad that someone is enjoying them! I do worry sometimes that it’s not really ‘quality’ blog content, but it is a personal blog after all.

      Have you learned the trick of unpeeling pomegranates in a bowl of water? Saves so much mess! I’m definitely having a moment with them whilst they’re cheap(ish), so pretty and delicious.
