    Hey @freddyausnz - I saw your ad. Your pants look cool. I thought I'd click through and check them out but I could only see them being modelled on super thin women wearing crop tops. I am not a crop top wearing super thin woman but I am an 'average' sized woman who buys clothes. I'd love to see your brand include a diversely sized range of models that give a good example of how a) your clothes and b) the other 95% of the population look. Thanks for reading this far Freddy folk! #bodypositivity #clothesthatfit

    12.5kg organic blueberries fresh from local farm 'Something From The Ground'. Tony and family have a fantastic biodynamic growing regime and are lovely people to boot. We had the loveliest time at their farm this morning. These are going straight to the freezer! 🌱@thehuon #blueberries

    @mrssmythmadethis it is called Blueberries for Sal by Robert McClusky (sp?) and it is a really old book with lovely pen and ink illustrations. About a little girl called Sal (surprise!) & her mum picking wild blueberries. Think it is Canadian? I loved it when I was little and my kids do too. The first comment I made refers to the sound her blueberries made when they hit the bottom of her tin pail.

    @mrssmythmadethis they're expensive here so I feel you! Now that you mention it, my son LOVES blueberries and playing in the garden so that would be an awesome activity to do. We are down 12th - 25th February - one week around Hobart and one around Launceston. :)

    SING IT! I'm with you 1000 percent on this. We are on hols right now with an internet-connection-free-tv 😱 and I've seen a little commercial television for the first time in years as my husband sneaks looks at cricket. Anyway-what a load of bollocks! I already knew it but seeing again with older eyes, the crap that people are expected to swallow? I also wish I could go back to my teen/very early 20s self and give her a wake-up-shake and save her a ton of money and self doubt.
    Anyway I love your non posed selfie project and it's a doubly great idea because it provides your family with #proofofmum. My own small contribution to the 'you ARE enough' idea is something I always do anyway but I'm doubly conscious of it this week at the beach...and that is showing my kids (especially my 8yo who I can tell is noticing all of this more than ever) is being a mum who puts on her togs and just jumps on in and has a swim. No missing out because you worry about what anyone else thinks of you or your body. Having a go at surfing, stand up paddle boarding, skating (admittedly not in swimmers)-but doing things you aren't good at and not caring about falling off/over/looking unco... Here's to 2017 and every year of being enough as we are.

    I have a Sony Xperia. They vibe in a big version which my lurks hands simply cannot cope with so I got the small version. My family is an I Phone family asks hands long tried to get me to convert but my camera is far better which is the main reason I got it, lol.

    @tonim the camera is the same I think - my understanding is that it's all the features, just smaller? I wanted something small. I also found the price jump between sizes rather disconcerting when I was buying it outright, not on a plan. 😳😱

Netflix suggestions welcome. Two more days of couch lyf then hopefully feeling like a hooman again. #myglamholiday #usingallllmysickleave
