March Moments

Hi everyone! It’s time to link up with Shay and Sheaffer for the March edition of What’s Up Wednesday. March has been mainly all about work routines and just ordinary everyday life sprinkled with enough fun moments to keep us going! It feels like there were only two weeks in March and it’s slipped by in a flash! Thanks so much for being here today as I share a few March moments.


Monday – Pesto pasta

Wednesday – Teriyaki salmon, rice and Asian salad

Thursday – Turkey burgers

Friday –  We are going to my aunt’s house for a late lunch /early dinner.

I have also been poaching chicken breast to add to the salads that I take to work. Poached chicken is so tender and juicy!

The end of summer! Waaah!!


I loved going along to Oatly baths and seeing my husband compete at the swim club. The BBQ lunch after the races was so delicious and it’s been nice to get to know some of the other swim club members. My husband has been part of the club for over ten years, and I only started tagging along for the season’s social events last year and this year. I’m always pretty good at remembering people’s names. But I’m having trouble remembering the names of the other swimmers. The ladies all seemed to be called either Kerry, Sue or Lyn. The guys are either Pete or Dave!

The highlight for March would definitely be going along to see FIVE perform. I haven’t enjoyed a concert this much in forever!

Another big March event was surviving two days of Assessment and Rating at preschool. I’m sure the assessor must have written the handbook on how to meticulously assess every detail!

My cousin hosted a wonderful March Cousin Connect with an amazing taco bar!


I finished off the last weekend in March with a fun day out at Kirribilli markets, a walk across the Sydney Harbour Bridge and exploring some hidden parts of The Rocks. (You can read all about our sunny Saturday adventure here)

It’s been a pretty good month for us! Sam also just finished four weeks of work placement at a hospital where he was in the colorectal unit. I’m so proud of him for doing his Bachelor of Nursing and I can hardly believe he is in his second year. I tell you, It feels like only yesterday we were taking him to his first day of kindy!


Thankfully, I’m not dreading anything. Yay!


The autumn school holidays!


I’ve gone back to watching my favourite reality shows from years ago – The Amazing Race and Survivor. They are both on free-to-air catch-up channels. I’m watching season 35 of The Amazing Race and the latest season of Survivor. They are both fantastic shows and I’m completely hooked.


March moments - Victor Lundberg music

I stumbled across Victor Lundberg and I have been listening to his soothing calm music while I blog during my lunch break at work. Lately, I have been plugging my Airpods in and drowning out all that noise from the preschool playrooms. Man, those little people are loud when they are having fun!


Ah, you know how it goes when autumn rolls around, and suddenly it’s all about layers, chilly mornings, and unexpectedly toasty afternoons. Recently, I have also been doing the long-sleeve and shorts combo to try and get a grip on the ever-changing weather.

As you know it’s the Easter weekend and I just got off the phone from speaking to my lovely cousin and she asked if our cousin crew were up for an Easter egg hunt. We sure are!


Did I mention the autumn school holidays already? Haha! Yes, I’m definitely looking forward to enjoying two weeks off from work and getting a break from juggling work and life!

That sums up some of our March moments and I wonder what exciting possibilities April has in store for us.

Happy Wednesday, friends!

  1. Oh, I would absolutely watch back episodes of The Amazing Race! That sounds fun! And you can make it to the Autumn holidays! I have faith in you 🙂 I know some days they must feel like forever away. Also, I’m not a breakfast eater but all your food pictures are making me hungry at not quite 6am.

  2. Always such wonderful food! I love that garden and your cousin’s taco event. I’m sorry that Autumn is on the way for you, we are still waiting for Spring over here, it’s not trying very hard so far…I can’t see us having a very nice summer.

  3. Hi Ruth. Wow! Sounds like you had a great month. Those meals both at home and out look fantastic. I can virtually taste them. Spring is just beginning here in the US, the weather is still trying to make up its mind between, warm, rain, cool, and still some snow at times.
