Ebbs and Flows

ebbs and flows

I was pretty bummed out Sunday morning when I wrote this post. It’s hard to have to take a hard look at the realities of life (I guess that was kind of the point in the original article, it’s a bit of a negative thing). And it’s easy to forget the good parts are there too. So what did I do after that?

Well, we went to Bunnings, shared a sausage sizzle snack, Ben found a metal ruler that he’d been searching for (yeah, he’s oddly specific on some things). We went for a little drive. Went home and nibbled on leftovers for lunch.


All in all, a fairly ‘normal’ Sunday, right?


It’s so easy to use the Internet to just talk about bad things. To voice our displeasure. To break taboos. And it’s important to use it for these things. After all, the Internet is something that we should be very grateful for. But I think it’s also a great place to just acknowledge the lucky lives we lead and be thankful for that.


Tell me about your weekend. What totally normal things did you do?

  1. Bunnings is great! My weekend was quiet which is my favourite kind. BBQ with in laws then a Sunday at home, doing a bit around the house, cooking & relaxing 🙂

    1. I think I need to learn how to potter around my house. It’s a skill I just don’t have.

  2. Sometimes escaping the house, life, computer and speak to strangers gets me out of my funk! Em – also visiting as part of #teamIBOT

    1. You mean computers aren’t perfect interaction?! 🙂

  3. My weekends are usually spent hiking or camping or doing something out in nature with friends. Which I love. This weekend was a bit different as I’m in the middle of my roadtrip…so it was still among nature and going on some short hikes and to the beach but by myself this time around…

    I agree though that sometimes with the stress of life we can forget the good stuff. I started the 100happydays challenge 87 days ago because I was going through a funk and felt like I was only focussing on the negative. This forced me to look at the good stuff in my life. So far, so good… 🙂

    1. I alway want to be into nature but I don’t know “how” to be…

  4. We went to the beach on Saturday with friends, then Sunday the boys went fishing, and the girls stayed home and did ironing. So very 1950’s of us. (And when I say the boys, I mean Boatman and the neighbour took the kids fishing, whilst me and the neighbours wife stayed in our respective homes, watched the other kids float between houses, and did housework) I loved it honestly. I like simple things. And I love a Bunnings sausage sizzle. 🙂

    1. The simple things really do make a life!
