Well here we are; the Melbourne weather doing its darnedest to keep us inside, the Premiers throwing shade in Pressers and a lot of extra time on our hands. I’m choosing to see it as an opportunity for a Hot Girl Winter Bootcamp. Can you use it for the greater good too? “From now on,… Continue reading Ladies and gentlemen, this is Lockdown Number 5!

6 months of 2019 down and 6 to go. Half-way guyz! Time to check in and see how things are going in my so-called life with a 6 month version of the Five Minute Journal.
