Here and Now 7

Hello Dear Reader,

It's been a while since I last posted a "Here and Now" blog post, I completely missed the boat last month and the lovely Sarah from Say Little Hen, hadn't hosted one for a while, but today I will make up for lost time.

Loving//the cooler weather, at last summer has let go

Eating//lots of leftovers after a mixed bag of a previous week and using up lots of bits and bobs from the fridge and freezer



Drinking//tea, as usual, lots of peppermint, sencha and liquorice. I buy the tea from the Redcliffe Jetty Markets on a Sunday, I take down the jars and they will fill them for me, cutting down on packaging. I also love a cup of de-cafe coffee on Sunday while watching Gardening Australia, I brew it in a Miss Lavazza Coffee Percolator, which belonged to my late FIL, it was a 30th Wedding Anniversary gift from my late MIL, so it is over 20 years old and still going strong. I buy the ground de-cafe from Neli Coffee, a local business.




Feeling//like I need to start sorting and packing up my late MIL home, next door to us, it's almost been a year since we lost her. I did actually do a little bit on Tuesday afternoon, I set myself 30 minutes to do as much as I could do in that time. I used that time to start sorting out the laundry, a fairly neutral place to start.

Making//lots of new to me recipes as well as inventing a few new ones as well


Thinking//how quickly this year is going already, hello middle of March

Dreaming//of a time when I will have more time to do all the things that tug at my brain-quilting, baking sourdough bread again and gardening

Have a lovely day

  1. What a great idea being able to fill your own containers with tea. I keep thinking I don't have the time to do all I want either.

    1. Hi Julie,
      I can be very frustrating, can’t it, I know my mind is chock- a -block with things I would love to do, but alas I must work😩 for the near future anyway. Buying tea this way is my way of reducing packaging, therefore waste. Thanks for reading and commenting, it really makes this blogging business all worth while. Fi

  3. Well done on starting to clear your mother in laws house - starting with something fairly easy like laundry sounds a good idea.

    1. Hi Penny,
      It felt good to make a start, I have put in an application for some long service leave in July, I want a good block of time to sort out my late MIL home in preparation for our son to move in. I think it’s a good plan. Have a lovely day.

  4. Hi Fiona!
    Thanks so much for joining in the March Here & Now. Your cooking always looks so yummy!
    Starting on your MIL house doesn't sound like an easy job, best to take it gently and I think setting a timer is always a good idea, it makes things more achievable.
    Have a good weekend,
    Sarah x

    1. Hi, yes the teas are absolutely delicious, I especially love the liquorice tea, such a depth of flavour. I too love that I can buy loose tea utilising my own glass jars. I just wish everything purchase was that easy. Thanks for commenting and have a lovely evening,Fi

  6. A hard task to tackle, clearing house for a lost loved one. Slowly and scheduled is a good plan, and it's nice to have the objective of your son moving in which gives the job a lovely positive goal.

    1. Hi,
      Yes I have decided to do 1/2 an hour sorting of a Tuesday arvo, it’s easy to focus for just that short a time. Thanks for commenting and have a lovely day. Fi
