Life This Week 9/4/2018: Share Your Snaps.

I've got a bit of everything for this month's 'Show Us Your Snaps'.



It was a very happy moment for me when I discovered that all I needed to fix this saucepan was a screwdriver.  It's old, scratched a just a bit battered but this saucepan holds a special place in my heart.  It was part of a set my mum gave me when I first moved out of home and across the country.  It's the perfect size for getting small jobs done and I use it at least once a day.  It's practical, it's hardy and it's a constant reminder of the people I love most on the other side of the country.

Beyonce, I love you but not even you can make me voluntarily pop a bunch of kale into my trolley at Woolies.


I'm a butter lettuce girl through and through.  I know it wouldn't make the hippest sweater logo (unless of course, her Beyness wore it and made it so) but I love butter lettuce with all my slack dinner night heart.  I eat it rolled around scoops of fried rice to make myself feel virtuous.  I tear it up to make a base for a leftover baked salmon salad which I top with sriracha mayo.


The Feaster long weekend was just one photo opp after another, really.


The Grounds of the City have finally brought a touch of fabulous to the cafe scene in the touristy shopping area of George Street.  There's always something new and delectable on the counters and in the display cabinets.


It's all such a joy to photograph as you wait for your takeaway coffee.


Intangible Goods is a thought provoking and interactive installation created by Elizabeth Commandeur and Mark Starmach.  Located outside Customs House when I visited it, Intangible Goods has since moved on to Martin Place.


A functioning vending machine, $2 will get you an 'experimental line of conveniently packaged consumables for the mind.  I only read about this after getting home and reviewing my photos.  I'm going to buy something the next time I see the machine.



Intangible Goods aims to bring you what you ironically cannot buy in our increasingly 'stuff obsessed' world - bravery, calm, connection and purpose.


One of the aims of the installation is to 'remove the stigma attached to mental health and make psychology approachable to anyone'.


Last but not least, one more photo of Manly Beach.  We've really loved taking the Fast Ferry to visit on the weekends.


As we get into the heart of autumn, I think our days of stopping by for a quick paddle are numbered but we'll still definitely be visiting over the cooler months of only to walk through the sand and observe the differences in the sky and coastline from how they appear right now.

  1. Oh that seems like a fascinating art installation, thank you for sharing! :)

    It's been a really warm autumn here so far too, I'm contemplating another beach trip next weekend, it is still warm enough to do so here! :)

    Hope you have had a brilliant weekend :) We had a busy one, some Church Online people flew over from the US so the weekend was full of activities, we had a party at my place last night which was fun!

  2. I'm kind of jealous of people who've noticed a difference in the weather - feels like no change here and I want me some autumn!!

  3. I'm not a kale girl SSG, I just don't like the taste. I love the photo of the coffee cups and roses at the cafe. Another great week for you and I wish you a beautiful day xx
