Life This Week 25/11/2019: Five Things.

 As we head into the last week of November (!!), this has been life lately....

Our last Christmas Chapel in the Early Learning Centre.  The afternoon had a bit of everything.  Creative costuming, creative casting, creative dance moves and those memorable moments the youngest cast members are famous for providing each year.

I'm all about taking a balanced approach to the silly season this year, bodies being temples and all that.  Which is how I found myself at the local spendy whole food grocery store in search of lunch.  I call this the GOOP Life Lite.  Gwyneth might not necessarily approve but I reckon I deserve points for trying.  Regardless of GP's take on things, both salads were surprisingly delicious.  And filling.  I highly recommend pairing with something bubbly for Saturday lunch. 

It's the Festival of Seven next weekend.  Assembling the lolly bags is my all-time favourite part of the party process.  Stay tuned later on this week when I share everything that went on behind the scenes in the creation of some (very ordinary) homemade birthday cupcakes.  You're welcome.

A much needed slow Saturday at home saw me tackle all sorts of little jobs such as sorting next year's uniforms and posting messages across various Facebook groups looking for people willing to receive the gift of a bulk lot of old school uniforms.  I can't bear to just throw them out if there's parents out there who could put them to good use for another year.

And lastly, a bit of self-care.  Not the fluffy day-spa and self-gifting kind (not that there's anything all wrong with these, on the contrary...) but the very necessary sitting in your GP's waiting room kind of self-love.  I've done my routine health screen, got the form for the test I need and can now carry on with life.  It wasn't so hard or unpleasant yet I'd been putting it off and finding excuses for far too long.

It will be December next week!  How are you coping?


  1. Good on you for taking the health test - isn't it funny how we put these things off?? I can't believe we're almost into December either! Enjoy the festival of 7 :) #lifethisweek

  2. I'm getting into the salads lately too! I love the addition of pomegranate, how interesting! xx

  3. They look like very elaborate party bags!! Intrigued! #Lifethisweek

  4. I hope you're able to recycle the old school uniforms. Have a fun Festival of 7! Kids grow up fast. #lifethisweek

  5. Salad and, that's what I call balanced eating.

  6. Those salads look delish, I love anything with barley and bubbles are an ingenious side! I too had a long overdue visit to the GP although she's so lovely - it's always a pleasure! Hope you have a great week :)

  7. I love long as someone else makes them for me. Good for you on the healthy eating. I have never heard of the Festival of 7. I will have to Google it!

  8. Hope you find a hope for the school uniforms! The feeling you get when you know that they will get some additional use!
    Never heard of the Festival of Seven. Sounds like fun!

  9. My annual check ups are around now...and my recent one must have been GOOD because "no news is good news" as my GP hasn't called me. This is great after the past few years. I hear you on end of year and birthdays...and yes I am exactly 63 years older than Master SSG! I cannot have a party without lolly bags so my grandkids will be taking one home. It matters not that some are in their 20s!

    Thank you for linking up for Life This Week. Next week's optional prompt is 48/51 Self-Care Stories #7. 2/12/19. I hope to see you there too. Denyse.
