Currently in June

Hi friends and happy Wednesday! I’m linking up with Jennifer from Overflowing With Thankfulness for the June edition of Currently. We are looking at what we are currently loving, looking forward to, enjoying, seeing, and lounging around in. Thanks so much for stopping by!


We got new letterboxes in our villa complex a couple of weeks ago, and I’m loving it! Letterboxes may not sound exciting, but for me, they sure are. The original letterboxes were lower to the ground (now hidden behind the silver number sign) and had become a home for snails. I was usually the one to grab the mail when I got home from work in the afternoon, and it was so gross! Ugh, I feel sick just thinking about it. The slimy snails would leave a trail everywhere, and on top of that, they also ate our letters. Since the mail was delivered in the morning, by the afternoon, bits of the letters had been eaten away.

Now, our fancy new letterboxes not only look better, but they are also higher up and seem to be snail-proof. Checking the mail is no longer a horror story for me! Yay!



I’m looking forward to this weekend because it’s a long weekend to celebrate the King’s Birthday. Happy birthday, King Charles! We don’t have any specific plans, but it will be nice to have a three-day weekend!


I’ve been enjoying all the hot drinks after a long day at work! Some nights, I’ll have my usual Tetley extra-strong tea, while other nights, I’ll go for herbal tea from T2.

Weird cloud formations in the sky!

Currently in June- altocumulus volutus

Yesterday afternoon, this cloud hung around for about three hours and you could see it all over Sydney. The kids were still talking about it today at preschool, and our classroom was in hysterics trying to pronounce the Latin name for this type of cloud – Altocumulus volutus.


It’s cold over here so now I am lounging around in all things fleece! Fleecy tracksuit pants, hoodies and woolly Ugg slippers.

And that’s a wrap! I can hardly believe it’s already June. Wow, we’re halfway through the year, and if time keeps flying by at this pace, Christmas will be here before we know it! I hope you have an amazing day and I’ll be back on Friday to share some favourites.

See ya!

  1. The letterboxes look fab! I am glad they are snail proof. Eww!
    How did I not know it was King Charles birthday! That explains why they are releasing the bank notes with his face on this week.
    Oh wow! Those clouds are strange!
    If it’s any consolation it’s still cold here. lol We’ve had a couple of warm days this week but today is chilly! I have my slippers on, jumper and my blanket over me. lol x

  2. Okay those clouds are weird but all I can think of is SNAILS. Ugh. Although I do think it’s a little bit funny that they would start to eat the mail. It gives a whole new meaning to the term “Snail mail”!!! Hahaha! (Although I can see how it would be annoying to have to live with rather than just read about.)

  3. So glad you can get the mail without worrying about snail trails! Ugh. That is a really strange cloud formation – not sure I’ve ever seen clouds like that! Hope you’re having a great week!.
