Spring update!

Good Morning friends, I hope this finds you well. Spring is here! I love this time of the year in Tasmania, the perfect amount of crispness and sunshine, daffodils and jonquils popping up everywhere like weeds but making everything look oh so bright and happy,...

Facts and Figures

I am 41 years old and this week I was told I was overweight. It’s the first time I recall ever having these words said to me. They were followed with ‘to be healthy you would know you need to lose at least 10 if not, 20 kilos’. Ouch. It was like someone had kicked...

COTC 9th Birthday * time sensitive offer *

Good Morning friends! Happy Monday! This week marks the 'birthday' of 'Cut out the Crap' - 9 years ago I received my first ever shipment of 'Cut out the Crap' Cookbooks. I recall the day so well. I paced the house waiting for the truck to turn up. Once it arrived I...

HAPPY 2019!

I feel so old saying this but my gosh 2018 went so fast! It’s been a reasonably uneventful year for us, however, I find comfort in this & am grateful for the quiet-ish & healthy-ish year that was. 2018 saw our family visit a few different countries. In June...

My liver can’t fit into it’s jeans ….

It has been a while that I have written a personal post. I have been around, just a little quiet and guarded, as I have been unwell.
Last July you may have seen that I started GAPs (see my starting post here) and I have been meaning to update you since, but sadly I have to tell you I have been putting off this post until now as I might not say what you want to hear, but if I didn’t, I wouldn’t be me and sticking to my rule of keeping it real.

‘Mabel’ and my new Kitchen

Good Morning friends! Happy Wednesday, I hope this finds you all well.

For those that know me and have been around here a while, you know I am not one to brag, however, I wanted to pop by today to show you my new gorgeous Belling Oven and half kitchen renovation.

Raw Emotions

Good Morning friends. I hope this finds you well. I have fought with the idea for a while now, to write a very personal blog post and even as I write this my chest tightens and I am unsure if I should just press my delete button and keep my thoughts to myself. After...

The Shakti Acupressure Mat

Good Morning friends! I hope this finds you all well! We are all well here. We are loving Tasmania! People told us that it was still cool in October but honestly I didn’t believe them all that much! It’s SO true though, we still have the fire going some days and...
