Lovin' Life 20/4/2017: Bits & Pieces.

It's hard not to love life when it's the second short working week you've had in a row, isn't it?  

Aside from the short weeks, I'm loving:

  • Finally getting on top of all the photos in my iPhone.  I've been meaning to continue scrapbooking my favourites from where I left off ... 3 years ago.  I've had plans to start photo books online which have yet to materialise.  Now, in just under half an hour, I've managed to have 9 hardcover books of photo memories ordered and on my way thanks to Chatbooks, a really clever app that automatically creates books of your most recent 60 favourite photos and sends them to you when they're printed.  I'll report back when I receive my books.  PS - their Facebook ad just speaks to me.  It's everything about my life right now...

  • My new 'yoga clock'.  It's the exact same model as my last 'yoga clock' which I broke the other week after 8 years of faithful service.  Again, this clock is everything.  Yoga wise, I use it make sure I get my 5 minutes of shavasna.  Kitchen wise, I use it to time the vegetables I have simmering, steaming or roasting for dinner.  Life in general wise, I carry it around the house when I forget to carry my watch or am trying to avoid looking at my phone.  My most recent iYoga Props order also included a weighted eye bag for said shavasna and one of those old school pune style straps.  

  • Blanched spinach and eggs on toast.  When the eating is as rich and as constant as it tends to be over long weekends, breakfast for dinner is the way to go.

  • Those DIY tea bags from Daiso that Instagram told me about a few months back.  I haven't used them yet but $2.80 for 100 is rather more pleasant than $8 for 25 at T2.  

  • Finding the library's CD that I thought I returned last week with its case.  Does this happen to anyone else?  The one time you don't open each case at the library before popping things down the return chute is the one time you've left the disc at home.  The outstanding disc (it really is one of The Wiggles' finest too...) is in a sandwich bag and ready to be dropped off tomorrow.

How's your week been?  Love, loathe or neither?


  1. Chatbooks sounds as though it is a quick and easy way to gather your photos into an album. I normally transfer my iPhone photos to my laptop and then take days or weeks to put them together in a photobook online. This sounds like a simpler method. :) #TeamLovinLife

  2. I love the Chatbooks ad! I can so relate to it! It sounds like a great easy photobook option!


  3. What a great app SSG! I prefer the old-fashioned scrapbooking, but photo books are such a great quick alternative. Yes, aren't the short weeks during April and early May something to celebrate! Love your breakfast. A good reminder that we can get a serve of greens in before the day has even started.

  4. Short weeks - what's not to love? Thanks for the tip re Chatbooks... #TeamLovinLife

  5. I need to sort out my photos too. I keep thinking about making a book but never get around to it!

  6. It sure is a good time of year for public holidays! You've reminded me that I really need to devote some time to sorting out the zillions of photo's on my iPhone. I am running out of space!! #TeamLovinLife

  7. Ooo you've made me hungry with that spinach and egg photo. I'm looking forward to hearing and seeing more of your Chat books when they arrive!

  8. Great to hear you've getting on top of your phone pics. I sorted the last few months of mine over Easter too. It's incredible how quickly the number of photos jumps into the thousands... and I wouldn't want to lose them :) #TeamLovinLife

  9. I might have to give the Chatbooks app a go! Not just because it's a funny advert either, ha! :) I really need to print a couple photo books with Baby Boy's baby pics in them.

  10. Oh Chatbooks sounds very interesting I might use it after my cruise which I am going on tomorrow !! Always enjoy reading your posts and what you have been up to. Have a great week!

  11. Great to catch up with your week and that you have had two short work weeks makes it even better!

  12. OK, So I need to get onto that whole photobook thing. More poor kids are lacking in printed pics and if ever I lose my Facebook account I'll be screwed because I tend to use that as my photo album.
    As soon as I find a spare week, I'll be doing photo books! Thanks for the inspo.
    (Or was that a kick up the bum?)

  13. Organising my photos is high on my list, before my phone dies from overload. I will have to check out that app.
