Hello dear readers! Today we are officially half way through the 2015 – making it kind of like the mother of all hump-days. Today is also my birthday so I’ve given myself the day off blogging and instead have asked a lovely friend of mine, Robyna from The Mummy and the Minx, to write a post about something most of us battle with – work/life balance.
It’s official: Brisbane folk have gone mad for markets! The rise in popularity of farmer’s markets has been nothing short of phenomenal, and this year alone we’ve seen five new players come on to the scene.

One of the things you notice when you go to the Brisbane Farmers Markets is the sense of community you find everywhere you go. You end up talking to stallholders about their products, having passionate conversations about everything from cannoli to cauliflower. And you often find yourself talking to your fellow customers in a way you definitely wouldn’t at a supermarket.
For most people, Wednesday means hump day and probably not much else. But if you happen to work in the city it means something quite different… Because for people who work in the CBD, Wednesday is market day! Every Wednesday from 10.00 am – 6.
I overhead this conversation on the train the other day. Two guys were talking about going to Sandgate for a meeting later that day, and one guy asked the other guy if he knew where they had to go. His answer? “Naahh mate I’ve got no idea.
First of all… a big congratulations on your engagement!
