High Five Friday #37

Can we have a yay! Cause it’s Friday!

It’s been a jammed packed week, filled with loads of sporting activities.

So lets get started with this weeks High Five Post.

Five Pictures


.1. This photo is from the Advanced Bricks & Pavers handicap.

A few years ago I would have looked at this photo and been like “ew gross, put that way.”  I have cellulite on my legs, my belly is hanging out and I have chunky legs.

While all that is true, I’ve come to appreciate my body.  This is who I am, wobbly bits and all.

In this race, I came 3rd overall, in a time of 31:30 for a 6.5km race.

.2. I took this photo while out geocaching on the 37th Parallel.  I have no idea what the scissors on the tree mean.

.3. Illegal dumping is becoming a huge problem where we live.  We have NO hard rubbish collection here in Stawell, and the fees to take your stuff to the transfer station are outrageous.

North Grampians Shire, is not good enough!

.4 & 5.  The kids had their sports day yesterday.

Kayla is the athlete in this family and she did exceptionally. With 1st ribbons in the 400m run, High Jump, 2nd ribbons, for 100m & the relay, and a 3rd for the 200m.

Miles did his very best.  He came 2nd in the relay.

Super proud of them both.

Five Links

Today is Earth Day, so in celebration of our Earth, I thought I would share some Earth-related links.

.1. The Two Hands Project is a collaborative approach to dealing with plastic pollution: take  30 Minutes and Two Hands to clean up your world anytime, anywhere.

We first discovered this group while in Sydney on holiday in 2014.

.2. One thing I love about the Geocaching community is that regularly has CITO events (cache in trash out).

.3. I’m noticing a lot more eggs that are fed a vegetarian diet?! Chickens are not vegetarians.

This is why we should be supporting companies like Kiss & Run Eggs, which produce nutritious Open Range eggs as part of the regenerative farm management system.

.4. The Great Barrier Reef is a beautiful place to visit.  But we are slowly killing it, because of coral bleaching.

.5. I don’t drink coke (I don’t like it), or soft drinks for that matter.

However, Coke is trying to stop a fantastic recycling scheme here in Australia.

While this advertisement was 1st released in 2013, the issue is still ongoing and has not been resolved.

Only 2 states/territories in Australia have refunds for returning recyclables.  The other 6 states/territories don’t.

This needs to change.

What do you give a High Five to this Friday?

  1. A definite YAY from me, I’m so tired, I really needed this long weekend. Although it’s going to be a busy one on Anzac Day as it is. Loving seeing the running pics of the kids, you are such a positive role model Matilda, it’s just the best seeing families running together. Any chance of getting T out there running, or is he firmly planted behind the camera?
