Open post of the week: Winter (and breakfast) blues

Happy Hump Day and welcome to Open Post.  Come and chat about whatever you like. We mean it – there are no limits, so go wild!

It’s been a little crazy around the office lately – but crazy in a good way. We’re in a bit of a state of flux and will have some very exciting announcements coming in the next few weeks. (If you don’t already, why not follow us on Twitter and Facebook? And maybe even Pinterest too? It’s the perfect way to make sure you never miss out on the latest.)

Here’s a sneak peek at some of the things we’ve been up to around the office and beyond….

OMM (On My Mind): I’ve been thinking a lot about winter –  my least favourite season ever. We’ve really gotten a taste of it in Sydney-town lately, and I’ve been standing at the bus stop on cold mornings just dreaming of happier, warmer, bikini-er times.

I always struggle in the transition over to the colder months of the year. I don’t like saying goodbye to daylight savings, I hate packing my denim shorts away and I’ve never looked good in a beanie. But the thing I’ve really been battling with? Breakfast.

You heard me. I’ve never been a breakfast eater. For me, breakfast is like that friend that you don’t particularly like or get along with but you hang out with them just because everybody else does.

To begin with, I’m not a morning person. I wish I could be the special kind of human that leaps out of bed fully awake before their alarm clock even goes off and wolfs down a giant bowl of muesli with yogurt and five different types of fruit. I’m more the kind that stays up far too late saying “I’m not even tired!” then sleeps through five different alarms and finally half-crawls out of bed to pull on some clothes for work (I always lay them out the night before, to avoid utilising any decision making skills whatsoever in the morning). I have been known to pretend not to see people I know on the bus, just so I can avoid talking before 8:30am.

As a result, I usually devour a piece of fruit before I dash out the door – but with the change in season, fruit’s just not doing it for me. I need something quick but also something that’s going to warm my poor chilly bones. Something yummy but also something that doesn’t involve developing a daily chocolate muffin habit. Your suggestions are welcome. Please no bacon & eggs – I may be the only person alive whose stomach turns at the mention of that combination.

What’s going on in your world this week? What’s on your mind?

(ps. OMM stands for On My Mind, for those of you playing at home!)
