Viv and I really enjoyed seeing “For a Good Time Call” at the MICF yesterday! (My sister was supposed to also come, but came down with a cold so couldn’t…) I may not be the most impartial of judges since I’ve known Urvi since primary school but if you’re in Melbourne and are interested in smart, funny commentary on mental health, Home and Away and multiculturalism then I’d really recommend this show 👍🏻

It’s turning out to be a busy week with lots of work, which is good in one way ($$$) but is keeping me away from my baby cat (and keeping her without her door-opener and food-dispenser) for many hours at a time. At least we’re getting some quality time in after work ❤️

The #mbfeb challenge continues for an extra few days! Here’s a selfie I took with the one I keep calling the light of my life… my beloved Gidget 🥰

For today’s photoblogging challenge, the day 6 prompt is sport. Viv and I go for different AFL teams, and nearly every year (until last year, for obvious reasons…) we try to go to the Sydney Swans vs Essendon Bombers game. This is us at the SCG one freezing night in May 2019.

Day 4’s prompt is layers, which I found a tricky one 🤔 Melburnians are known for our prodigious wearing of layers in the winter, so I went and found a selfie from July. Under this coat I’d have had a jumper or vest and a proper shirt on! Not to mention my multilayered mask 😷

Since Melbourne’s first lockdown I’ve been growing out my hair (not just because hairdressers were closed, I’d also been feeling like a change from the short hair I’d had for six years). Today after I brushed it, I found it just naturally curling at the end like this! Very cool 😲

Twenty-four days now since Victoria’s last new Covid-19 case, and as of today we’re finally allowed outside without a mask, so long as we maintain social distancing! Was so good to feel the fresh air on my face as we exercised today.
