I have lost motivation. I’ll get it back eventually. I always do, but I’ve enjoyed this week being quiet…

Here are some of the things I am loving/hating at the moment:

Sons of Anarchy

We have been watching this on and off for the last few months. We’ve caught up and are almost at the end of Series 5. I think about this show a lot. I like it, but I hate it. If you’ve watched it you’ll know what I mean. It’s frustrating, but addictive. It’s hard to comprehend, but it draws you in. The writers scare me. How they think of these things is beyond me.

Freshly coloured hair

What do I do when I am feeling flat? Call my bestie and ask her to spruce me up. She always knows how to make me feel good. There’s nothing better than seeing no re-growth or grey hair! I am actually very grey. Truly, I am. Years of steroids and medication has done this.

School discos

I love it when my boys get all ready to go to the school disco. Flat hats, black socks, Vans, fluro shorts… if you have boys, you’ll know!

New joggers

I got fluro/multi coloured things and I cannot wait to wear them when I feel better. I love looking at them though!


I’m loving this craze at the moment. I could buy everything ‘skull’. It’s making me feel super cool and edgey 🙂


I’ve received a lot of emails and direct messages this week from people sharing their crohn’s stories, or long-term illnesses like mine. I have loved these emails. I’ve loved your encouragement and I’ve loved being able to connect with you this week. I’ve also discovered a blog reader/twitter friend and I have an IRL mutual friend. That’s very cool when that happens!

The Block

It’s all over next week. I will be really sad! I was going to the live auction next week too, but with this health set-back, I just can’t squeeze it in. You have NO idea how disappointed I am. Boo hoo.

My sister

She’s gone back to full time teaching and I really miss her. I don’t get to talk to her as much and I can’t just visit like I used to.

So that’s what’s been happening around here. My husband put in that big day yesterday and has almost finished the floorboards. They have 4 guys on the job, so they are flying through it. He couldn’t walk last night! I call him “Old Warrior”. He said: I’m too old for this shit Katrina, and we’ll never be building a new house again… Hahaha! Poor guy. True, we’ve built a few houses before and on every single house build/reno he’s had to lay floorboards!

Tomorrow I am teaching an interior design workshop and I can’t wait to talk about pretty things! Pretty things lift the spirit.

PS. There’s new pretty things on UNDER 100 DOLLARS this week.

    Hi Katrina, sorry to hear you are still not feeling great. Hopefully you bounce back soon. Very exciting for you about your Ouse although so much hard work as well. Have a lovely weekend.

    Hey there,
    Grey! I am so grey but I can’t used medication for an excuse.
    What a shame you won’t get to the big final of The Block!!!!!
    I get so sad when these shows end……
