June has been a bit crazy busy what with moving house and having to spend quite a lot of time at our old rental property to get it ready for handing back the keys but in between what seems like endless cleaning we have had a fun month.
I subscribed to Spotify in June and have really enjoyed using the service. I quite like the various play lists, especially the work out ones and that I can select music based upon my mood or what I am doing which I love.
Ocean’s Eight – Naomi and I went to watch this movie and it was brilliant. I loved the original Oceans series and had high expectations which were met and exceeded. We had heard some negative reviews of the film but they were frankly unfounded. It was funny, fast paced, glamorous and kept you guessing right until the very end.
Ronni Khan is Food Fighter – I won a double pass for this movie which is a documentary about Ronni Khan and her mission to reduce food waste. Ronni’s charity, Oz Harvest partners with companies such as Woolworths and Qantas to redistribute left over food. The movie was a real eye opener and certainly made me rethink how I buy and use our weekly food shop.
Northey Street City Farm Winter Solstice Festival – we attended this on the 23rd which is a few days after the actual Solstice which happens on 21 June in the Winter here and 21 June in December in the summer.
It was quite a quirky event and not really as I expected but I really enjoyed catching up with our American friends, their house guest from Germany and Naomi with the Aussie. The lantern parade and bonfire was really nice and the fire was welcome as the night was a bit chilly!
Yoga Day Festival – in the same weekend as the Solstice Festival I also attended the Yoga Day Festival with Naomi. I really wanted to try yoga but never quite got around to it so when I saw the event advertised I wanted to give it a go. I am definitely not as flexible as I would like but I am actually so much stronger than I ever thought I was. I really enjoyed it and want to keep doing it to keep building on my strength.
I have for a long time wanted to start running and Naomi told me about the Zombie Run 5K App. Its a 5k running trainer where you gradually build to running 5km non stop but against the backdrop of training to escape the Zombies! You get a running commentary of the story during each exercise and I frequently find myself laughing in between runs!
