I am loving these sunny, warm autumn days with blue skies and the cool nights are a big bonus. There’s something so cozy about the crispness in the air and it sure does make falling asleep a whole lot easier, compared to those humid, sticky summer nights. I am also loving and relishing our final week of daylight saving. With the clocks set to go back on Sunday, I know that it will be shorter days for us until spring arrives. Ho Hum.

I might have mentioned this a few hundred times but I’ll say it again. I can’t wait for the autumn school holidays, only 8 days to go! We are planning a couple of exciting day trips with my cousin and her family. So I’m really looking forward to those! My cousin’s mother-in-law is visiting from Ohio for a few weeks so it will be great for her to experience Taronga Zoo and do a day trip to our capital city, Canberra. When she asked me if I wanted to join them – yes, please!!


I haven’t bought much of anything lately, except for the usual essentials that help keep us alive, like food, etc. It’s easy not to spend money when I’m busy at work during the term. But coming up to the school holidays when I will be able to enjoy some fun shopping trips then it will be a different story. I’m still trying to be mindful of my spending though.

Oh yes, I nearly forgot to mention. I recently bought this amazing motion-activated unscented cat deterrent spray and it has worked a treat in keeping our kitten Mochi off the kitchen counters.

If you have a furry friend who is exploring no-go zones then this spray is the best! It’s safe, harmless, sanity-saving and super effective!


I replanted this little Ivy plant that was in a tiny pot. Now it has a bigger home, I hope that it will start to flourish.

Apart from the usual daily cleaning chores I haven’t embarked on any major cleaning. Although I have noticed the doors calling my name recently, they have a few marks on them that need a good scrub. It’s the school holidays soon so I’ll probably get to them then.

And that’s a wrap for this month! Can you believe that it’s April already, wow! I hope you have an amazing day and I look forward to being back here on Friday.

See ya!

  1. When we had cats, we used to keep spray water bottles around so we could squirt them with that! I’d totally forgotten about that until you mentioned that sprayer you bought. Your long fall days sound lovely! I know you’ll enjoy every second of them until the times changes for you. Your upcoming trips sound like so much fun! I can’t wait to hear about those!

  2. My kids’ school is having a book drive so I cleared out a corner of my office where I had some donations, and now I need to clean up more from there!

  3. Those day trips sound like fun! We are looking forward to spring break and I’m trying to come up with a fun idea or two that my two teens won’t roll their eyes over. I’d love to do SOMETHING fun that week… but I’m betting they’ll mostly want to sleep and spend time with their friends.

  4. I could have used a cat spray like that so many times in years past! We’ve had a couple of cats that were absolutely notorious for getting up on counters and such and it was a challenge because we couldn’t be home all the time. Enjoy your upcoming school holidays and the day trip you have planned!
