My Current Top Five ‘Not Blogging Reasons’

“Of all the words of mice and men, the saddest are, “It might have been”.”
~ Kurt Vonnegut


  1. Ben and I came home from holidays with the world’s worst gastro bug.
  2. Due to illness-induced misery coupled with jet lag and insomnia, I was only ever awake at ridiculous o’clock, and never at blogging central time.
  3. Somewhere in the midst of all the misery I vomited so hard that I tore internal scar tissue and adhesions from my recent abdominal surgery. Ouch!
  4. I ended up with infection and high fevers which caused hallucinations and complete loss of time and space.
  5. The outside world ceased to exist, and all my plans were forgotten.

I am feeling a little more human as of yesterday. So, normal blog scheduling will now resume. Along with naps, self-care, cups of tea, bone broth, plain foods and probiotics.

We’re in the city still. Our suitcases remain in the middle of the lounge-room floor and we haven’t even unpacked yet. Maybe today? Meanwhile our little farm is an island, all flooded in by ex-tropical cyclone Debbie.

Life is indeed a glorious adventure!

Thanks for all the messages of concern when I missed blogging for a few days. You know me well. I only ever miss a post if something’s up. But really, we’re doing much better now.

Biggest love and hugs,

Nicole <3 xx

  1. That is such a tough ride – I am so sorry you were so unwell – I am glad you are on the mend a bit more. I will send you smiles and healing thoughts.

  2. Ouch! That’s such a downer after your good times on holiday. Wishing you both (and the farm) a speedy return to health.

  3. One thing I can say…you never do ‘it’ by half!
    Sorry to hear your story…wellness may only be a few days away. Take good care of yourself and each other. Much love. Xx

  4. Thank you for the update, I was beginning to wonder (and worry). Take the time you need to heal, sending green light your way. And blessings to your farm.

  5. So sorry you ‘re poorly after such a lovely holiday …and the weather you ‘re having don’t help . Take care my sweet ❤

  6. Best for the recovery and the cleanup.. Queenslanders must be getting pretty tired of being complimented on their resilience, but I wish you a few bucketfuls anyhow. Vivien
