Champions

I’m practicing my visualisation skills this morning while eating our pb and j breakfast after cooking and serving sausages, baked beans, and numerous other delicious sights and smells. If I try real hard this sandwich really does taste like hot sausages and beans. Mmmm. It was a breezy 10 degrees last night and pretty darn…

Food Prep Stars

Chilling at Parachute Music Fest this weekend with my good friend Jenaya! We’re volunteers so we get in free (score!) and we also got the best shifts possible. We’re on breakfast prep all weekend, so that means we work from 7am til approx 12 and then have the whole day to chill and enjoy the…
