Welcome to our first link-up! This is when we recap all the great stuff that happened during the week – and sometimes the not so great stuff – and then invite you to add a link to your recent post or something you found intriguing or otherwise this week We invite you to go wild and inspire others – share the love, the irony, the chuckle, the good read, the lesson, the recipe… what ever pops your cork and lets the bubbles run free!
The opportunity to add your link will be open from Saturday until midnight Monday – to catch all those random time zones! So fill your glass!
Meanwhile…. Zip! There goes that week. Blink and you’ll miss it! For me (Fluffy) this week started with a sleep-in… thanks to Canberra Day even my office (while not in Canberra) was closed… in sympathy? Either way, I wasn’t complaining. Shut eye until 0845, roll out of bed and into a smoothie using fresh fruit and coconut water, while absorbing some vitamin D on my balcony. Meanwhile, Junket was also getting a sleep-in, before spending the day picnicking in the backyard with her adorable flock and recharging for the week ahead.
I hit the ground running – literally – for the third week of my training program for the Sydney Half Marathon. I’m running in memory of my dad who died on March 22, 2014 from Parkinson’s Disease (PD) and the funds I raise go to Shake It Up Australia Foundation. But sometimes, when I’m looking for motivation on a long run, I also think of a little guy called Micah on the other side of the world who has CF and then I #breathedeepforMicah. Between his mum, Amber, and I, we are kicking PD and CF to the curb. Feel free to join us!
BTW if you are in Sydney on a Friday come join me at the stairs of the Sydney Harbour Bridge (north side) at 0715 for a 5km run organised by Soldier On. It’s a lovely run – sun, rain or hail – and a good way to start the day and end the week!
Marie Claire launched the campaign #WEARETHE51, named because women in developed countries represent 51 percent of the population and yet still struggle to achieve equal pay, opportunities and rights And women started to disappear!
I also finished my fourth and last instalment in the series on Tohoku – to mark the fourth anniversary of the devastating earthquake, tsunami, nuclear disaster of March 11, 2011. Junket was also burning the midnight candle writing a sweet post on “Loving Little People“!
