Do you ever have deja vu Mrs Lancaster? I’m sure at the moment it feels like Groundhog Day for a lot of people. Especially us Victorians. Other than the small minority who can still work, eat and play as if nothing has happened, the reality for others is quite the opposite. After being locked up like animals for weeks on end and still unsure where the finish line is it’s fair to say our spirit and hope is taking a proper beating. And speaking to many people over the past couple of weeks, there’s definitely a common theme in every... Read More..
Why is spring the best time for planting seeds? This was the first of 8 questions I had to navigate through. In a bid to become uncle of the year, I was helping my 8 year old nephew with homeschooling.

Some will always be with you and others have come and gone. According to society and the way we live, these labels define you. They give you a sense of belonging and recognition amongst your peers.

For all the control freaks (just like me)... We’re all very admirable in search of chasing our goals and dreams. Whatever they may be. We are diligent, we persevere, and we become relentless.

We pride ourselves on choosing our mark, aiming and expecting to hit dead centre. We place a lot of pressure on ourselves to be right and not make mistakes. Over time we learn and become competent in planning,... Read More..
Ok listen up gang... When you’re sitting on the couch with your blanket all comfy and warm, it’s all good and well to say to yourself, ‘’Right that’s it, it’s time to pull my finger out and get fit!’’ In fact that’s where most peoples fitness journeys start - when they’re in a safe and comfortable environment. Because it’s so easy to do. Anyone can do it. However saying it is one thing - following through with it is another. It could be anything that finally ticks you over the edge. A random thought.
