I’m pecking out these words left handed from my deluxe overnight accommodation in Byron hospital.
Yes, I am still running my retreat. Except at night where I am now popping down to hospital every evening to stay overnight to receive IV antibiotic infusions to combat the nasty multi-drug resistant superbug in my bladder which has become quite a serious situation.
Not ideal, but we are making it work. Blogging is hard though. I am now one handed and typing this has taken a stupid amount of time so I will resume blogging next week when my IV line comes out.
Sorry, but it’s just too hard right now.
I’ll pop some little video updates on our facebook page until then.
I love you heaps.
Make the most of these incredible May energies,

- Ben and I came home from holidays with the world’s worst gastro bug.
- 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.
- 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!
- I ended up with infection and high fevers which caused hallucinations and complete loss of time and space.
- 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 ❤ xx

I was trying to get a blog post loaded this morning.
With lots of food action shots.
But when I went to upload them I got this:
All photos from a long ago beach trip.
I could not upload one single photo of honey pepper beef stir-fry!
But I did get the message.
We are going to the beach. No recipe blog today!
“Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.”

After days of insanely long hours putting together the crystal grid, after launching my new Planner and communities, after supporting clients as they navigated Christmas and life difficulties, after blogging the New Year energies and getting ready for so much more, after working my last three designated unplugged days, all on the back of recovering from major surgery, this morning I slept in.
Yes, I did.
And it was good.
Especially considering that my Power Word for 2017 is HEAL.
I’ll see you tomorrow, with my energetic forecast for January.
Be kind to yourself today.
Much love, Nicole xx
