The Ultimate Rabbit Hole #118


Ultimate Rabbit Hole #35

Huzzah for the weekend. It’s my last weekend in the mother country, for a while at least. Today I head down to London where I’ll have a fast but not furious 24 hour catch up with friends and family before leaving on a jet plane, wee, wee, wee all the way back home. My bags are bursting, my passport is packed and my noise reducing headphones are charged! I am good to go!

Today is National Quiche Lorraine Day. If you’re after a classic, check out Mary Berry, my kitchen hero’s Classic Quiche. If you’re after something a little different, check out the 5 minute quiche in a mugthese Quiche Lorraine Bites and my very own Quiche Lorraine Frittata.

Breakfast is my favourite meal of the day and these positivity tips for breakfast are sure to start your day in the right way!

I’m looking forward to getting back into the groove at home, I’m hoping these 14 tips to have a productive day will keep me on track. Talking of focus, check out these 10 apps that keep you focused. 

I not only want to stay focused, I want to stay on track and I still want to smash out my steps, so I’ll be checking out these 21 tips to stay healthy when you sit at a desk all day.

Last week, I read Robyna’s post about how to create a uniform but this Washington DC woman has taken things one step further, she’s worn the same outfit every day for a year. Don’t worry, she’s done plenty of laundry in that time!

This post about “daymakers” is an important reminder that it all matters and that “the most simple acts of kindness can make someone’s day and possibly even cause a worldwide ripple effect.”

I’m naturally nosey so I was intrigued to see what personal trainers eat for breakfast. I’m going to have to compare notes with my trainer Kathy, when I get home.

Mum has been decluttering like a boss and I’ve been aiding and abetting. I’m feeling inspired to have a bit of declutter myself when I get home. If you want to make a start, here are 10 things to get rid of today.

I’m psyching myself up for the 24 hour flight home but it’s all good, because I’ve ticked off these 10 tips for surviving an overnight flightI’ll be long haul flying like a boss!

Every week I’m going to add my favourite finds from the previous rabbit hole adventure and last week was full of corkers! I loved Beth’s tips on how to stalk the saleswhen it comes to finding a bargain, she knows what’s what! Loved Simone’s tale of how to launch a book and Tania’s Lasagne Souplooked souper awesome!

And last but not least, these pics from Interpets, Japan’s largest pet fair have more cute than you can shake a stick at!

So tell me, what grand plans do you have for this weekend? Do you have a uniform? What do you eat for breakfast? Have you got a productivity tip to share?

Every Saturday morning, we will open up the rabbit hole link up for bloggers to add their link list posts or even just their favourite post (if you are not of the link list kind) for the week. Please link only one post. This makes it fair for everyone and allows more posts to be read. Talking of reading, do try and pop along to say howdee to some of  the other lovely linkers and my awesome co-hosts. This week, you can link up here or bob on over and say hello to Paula at  The Geeky ShopaholicJess at Confident Life and Shari at Good Food WeekIt doesn’t matter where you add your link because it will appear on all four blogs, as if by magic!  The link up will stay open until midnight the following Monday.

  • Have a safe trip home and lots of fun in London! I’m slightly jealous because it’s one of my very favourite places in the world! My weekend will be spent getting a recall on my car fixed and running Bay to Breakers because next weekend we’re off to LA! 🙂

    • My time in London is going to be short and I hope, sweet! Bay to Breakers sounds like such a fun run and LA baby! It’s so good to have something to look forward to!

  • I’m hoping the rain holds off so I can trek out west to the Medieval Fayre- but I don’t like my chances!

    • Oh, Medieval Fayre – sounds fun! I heard about the Sydney weather forecast and if it’s any consolation it’s been raining non stop here too! Hope you have an ace weekend!

  • LydiaCLee

    Have fun and safe travels.

  • Hope your flight goes well! It’s a big one but you’ll be ready for the rest it provides after a busy time in the UK I think! 🙂 I don’t think I could wear the same thing every day for a year but now into month 5 of 6 months without shopping I’m starting to feel like I’m wearing the same things over and over…ha!

    Thanks for the link up!

    • I’m so impressed with your commitment to no shopping. I’ve shopped up a storm in the UK in between all the hard yakka! I might need a holiday when I get home though! Happy Weekend!

  • merilyn

    thankyou sammie!
    definitely making the quiche in a cup! … thanks Lorraine!
    enjoy the last leg of your holiday hun!
    much love m:)X

  • I like your readiness for flying and the charging of the noise-cancelling headphones. I used them on my ‘one and only’ travel OS and found them amazing. Safe travels. Denyse x

  • Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    Having just gone through a long haul flight I’m definitely going to look at that link! And thank you for the Quiche Lorraine shoutout. I have been called that all my life too-luckily I like the dish! 😀 Have a safe flight home!!

    • I hope your trip was as good as it looked! I totally want to try your quiche in a mug when I get home. It must be so good to be back with Mochi! X

  • All the yuminess as always. There must be mixed feelings about coming back to Australia, I imagine. I can’t imagine only wearing outfit for a year though.

    • I think I would get bored of the same outfit too. It’s a bit too minimalist for me. When I’m in the UK I miss David and when I’m in Oz I miss mum. I can’t win! Hope you’re having a lovely weekend x

  • Happy travels! I am taking off tomorrow across Australia! X

  • Enjoy your last days in the Motherland 🙂

  • Three cheers for positivity tips at breakfast! xo

  • Oh dear that flight is something you don’t look firward to. happy shopping though and thank you so much for liking my lazagne soup!

  • I loved Robyna’s post from last week! And I checked out the article about the lady who wore the same thing all year. I couldn’t do it! lol I hope you’re having a great week Sammie! 🙂

    • I couldn’t do the one outfit for a whole year either, especially after all the retail therapy I indulged in over in the UK!

  • I am off to look at those overnight flight tips because I need them! I can never sleep on planes!

    • Me neither! I took a double dose of sleeping pills and still only managed 4 hours of zzzs on a 16 hour flight!
