One month down

Well its the end of January already, all major celebrations are over, the school holidays are ending & most new years resolutions will have been forgotten...

Not for me, Im still powering on...full steam ahead I say....
Look I will show you!

Here we are at Week 4 over at
& the challenge this week was "Daily Routine" & although this isn't exactly my daily routine, it is my goal to make it just that.
How often do you exercise?
I have done some form of exercise 3 x a week for the month of January, but I plan to step it up to 4-5 x a week in Feb.
Just gotta improve my diet & i will be a "yummy mummy" before I know it!!

I am really pleased that I have stuck with it so far...remember one of my goals was to exercise month down....eleven to go!!!

One of my other goals was to get more creative & of course skillful with my camera.
These photo challenges have been very motivating. Having a theme to prompt you each week really does get you thinking & I have to say, I am really enjoying it so's not to late to join in if its something you have been thinking about. You don't have to have a fancy camera or any great skills, some even just use their iPhone.
I find I have really taken a lot more notice of what goes on around me & how we live as a family because of these challenges & I think that's the part of  I am enjoying most!!!

The theme this week over at
was "Self portrait"
& seen as though we celebrated Australia Day this week I thought it would be the best time to take a mug shot of me!

We have an annual BBQ with family & friends.
 We have the same core group of people at the party, all people from our old home town, that have also relocated here to The Hunter Valley  & we try to have someone different from that group host the BBQ each year &then  they invite a few extras from their circle of friends.
This year was at my sisters house, you all know Erin from her blog
I am hoping its my turn again next year, I do love having a good excuse for some decorating!!!
It is always a fantastic day with lots of fun food & games, like back yard cricket & of course your Aussie themed hats, glasses & any other accessories you can get your hands on...

My family  refused to pose for a photo & this is all I got from dream child no4.

I hope all of my fellow Aussies enjoyed some great Australia Day festivities.

Have a great weekend everyone!
