Let’s celebrate! It’s official! 100 Tell Me Something Good posts! 100 positive starts into a new week!

I think that really needs a special TMSG post!

So while the rules for the normal Tell Me Something Good post remain the same, I’d like to make this a little bit of a party. Come on over and share a link to a post that you have felt had a positive impact on you. It can be one of your posts, or one you read.

Let’s kick off this week on a positive note. Not just for you but for other bloggers too.

It’s easy:

• Mention something that you consider being good in the comments

• Or write a post about it on your blog (please don’t forget the pingback if you do so I don’t miss out and also share the link to it in the comments below). Something good that happened to you recently, or something good you will experience in a little while, or something good you know will happen soon. Something that makes you feel good.

• Share this post and invite your followers as well.

And for this week only: Make it a blogger party and share links of posts you want to share in the comments.

I’ve already shared my good thing, celebrating 100 TMSG posts. But of course we need a bit of a happy dance, as always…

Another Versatile Blogger Award

Image result for image versatile blogger award

I know a couple of bloggers who have decided to go award free with their blogs. I totally understand but up until today I would not do the same. I think each and every time I get awarded for one of the blogger awards out there it puts a smile on my face. So thank you so very much, A Penny For My Thought, for nominating me for another Versatile Blogger Award.

The only issue I actually have with being nominated is that I often struggle to come up with nominees, just because I find it hard to only pick a few out of this massive amount of fantastic blogs out there.

Sucheta, thank you so very much for nominating me. I bet you thought I forgot all about it… I didn’t 😉

To The Rules:

  1. Show the award on your blog. Done
  2. Thank the person/people who nominated you. Done
  3. Share 7 things about yourself. Okay
  4. Nominate 10 blogs. Okay


I will turn this around slightly as it is my blogs birthday week this week. So I kind of feel I can do what I like there… I know, I know…

Anyway… So let’s not share any facts about me. I’ve done that plenty of times in my award posts. Let’s just celebrate my blogs 2nd Anniversary together!

Come on over and share check out what you have to do to be part of the celebration! Join the Blogger Meet & Greet Party and let’s make some new connections and maybe refresh old ones…

Don’t leave links here, head to the Meet & Greet post linked above to share your link…

SL-Week 51: Birthday


Sometimes it doesn’t need a cake for candles. A snowball can do it too. Fire and snow, opposites that work well together, don’t you think?

Usually I would post my Share Your Wold answers but Cee is taking off this week to celebrate 4th of July properly. And so she should. As Silvain Landry’s ‘Birthday’ task asks for pictures of a celebration of a very equally important status I decided to make it my Tuesday post this week. You gotta be flexible, right 😉


Happy Australia Day

It’s Australia Day. It’s gorgeous weather, I’m at work, surrounded by happy people and just watching some planes performing a wonderful show far above the grounds here. On the TV we have in our office to keep track of what’s going on out there are stunning pictures of this beautiful city, more happy people and more festivities.

For those of you who don’t know what Australia Day is all about here is what Wikipedia is saying about it (facts that I had to learn by heart in order to get my Australian Citizenship):

Australia Day is the official National Day of Australia. Celebrated annually on 26 January, it marks the anniversary of the 1788 arrival of the First Fleet of British Ships at Port Jackson, New South Wales, and the raising of the Flag of Great Britain at Sydney Cove by Governor Arthur Phillip. In present-day Australia, celebrations reflect the diverse society and landscape of the nation, and are marked by community and family events, reflections on Australian history, official community awards, and citizenship ceremonies welcoming new immigrants into the Australian community.[2]

The meaning and significance of Australia Day has evolved over time. Unofficially, or historically, the date has also been variously named “Anniversary Day”, “Foundation Day”, and “ANA Day”.[3] 26 January 1788 marked the proclamation of British sovereignty over the eastern seaboard of Australia (then known as New Holland).[4] Although it was not known as Australia Day until over a century later, records of celebrations on 26 January date back to 1808, with the first official celebration of the formation of New South Wales held in 1818.[5] On New Year’s Day 1901, the British colonies of Australia formed a Federation, marking the birth of modern Australia. A national day of unity and celebration was looked for. It was not until 1935 that all Australian states and territories had adopted use of the term “Australia Day” to mark the date, and not until 1994 that the date was consistently marked by a public holiday on that day by all states and territories.[6]

In contemporary Australia, the holiday is marked by the presentation of the Australian of the Year Awards on Australia Day Eve, announcement of the Australia Day Honours list and addresses from the Governor-General and Prime Minister. It is an official public holiday in every state and territory of Australia, unless it falls on a weekend in which case the following Monday becomes a public holiday instead. With community festivals, concerts and citizenship ceremonies, the day is celebrated in large and small communities and cities around the nation. Australia Day has become the biggest annual civic event in Australia.[5]

It’s a good day and I’m looking forward to the fireworks tonight…

Happy Australia Day!


Whatever big success you have achieved you should always treat yourself with something. No matter what. For me there are many treats. From simply sitting down and thinking back on the journey to the success to a nice massage or a good meal, to a beautiful walk on the beach or a piece of chocolate.

No matter how small your success might seem to others, for you it might be big. And even if it’s only a little one, treat yourself!

I like chocolate, I like food, I like coffee and I like wine. There’s nothing better than a glass of sparkling wine or Champagne after a victory. At least in my books.


How do you celebrate your achievements?

Anniversary Coming Up – Party With Me!

I can’t believe that it will soon be a year since this blog came to life. A year of daily posting and connecting with inspiring people all over this planet. I know it’s early, as it’s not a proper anniversary just yet. But I figured I might celebrate already today. Celebrate in the form of reflecting on what this blog is all about and what it was intended to be about. Maybe even thinking about how I would introduce me today, almost a year after I’ve introduced myself to my readers for the first time.

Happy Australia Day

It’s Australia Day today and it was a lovely day so far. I was lucky enough to be able to go to the tennis again and truly enjoyed being there. Now back home and waiting for the fireworks to start. And I am pretty sure the Australian Open is the only tournament which interrupts play because of the firework.

Now have a great day everyone. Mine is almost over and tonight I will go to bed happy and feeling lucky to live in such a beautiful country.
