Lovin' Life 9/7/2020: Five Things.

The things that made me smile this week:

1.  A sunny winter's morning at the park.

Soft sun filtering through the bare branches of winter, 

riders cantering on their horses to the side of me

and Master SSG scooting ahead of me.

Centennial Park never fails to work its 'oasis in the city magic' on me every time I visit.  It's just a shame I get there so infrequently.  Something that needs to change, I think.

2.  Being reunited with a favourite chocolate.

Spotted in the most unlikely corner of suburban Sydney.  The familiar profile, the red and cold trimmed packaging... my beloved Mozartkugel.

That dark chocolate coated, marzipan filled confection that I discovered in Berlin back in the days when we could travel with relative abandon.

The world felt smaller and more welcoming then, the boundaries of countries porous.

3.  A productive morning at Westfield.

This pit stop for coffee was well deserved.

In the space of one Sunday morning I got the car (deep) cleaned, my brows groomed, soccer boots sorted and my stock of Aldi chocolate replenished.

It wouldn't have been an Aldi chocolate run without the addition of an item from the middle aisles of plenty to my trolley.  These wool-blend hiking socks work a treat with my new hiking boots for the snow later this month.

4.  Third time's a charm.

I finally got the stitch right for this throw I'm making with blanket yarn.

5.  Gifts.

I found some beautiful birthday presents for my nephew and niece.  Looking forward to the gifting and then the unwrapping.


  1. I'm wishing I had someone young I could buy that ocean saw it first game for. Now, this is going to come as a shock, but I've never tried Aldi chocolate & I've never really been in the middle aisles...(and in a smaller voice) in fact I've only been to Aldi once. (says it quickly & runs for cover)

  2. Looks like a great week SSG. Hope this week will be more of the same. #lovin'lifelinky

  3. I'm with you on the uplifting and regenerative powers of parks, nature, wildlife, the great outdoors! Must admit I have never heard of or tried your favourite chocolate. In fact this post has been quite the confectionary education for me! lol Have a great week SSG. xo

  4. What a lovely week you have had... and aren't those Aldi “special buys” awesome!! You are going ot love those socks!!

  5. Those horses look like they are in a quaint highlands town ... there's no way they look like they're in the middle of Australia's biggest city. So pretty!
