The Humble Garden Cubby

I built my first cubby with my brother when we were kids and it was the headquarters of all our adventures. We were lucky to grow up with an amazing garden and I wanted the same for my kids. We have had the garden for a long time but the kids never really used it quite as much as we would have liked. Last year we decided to try and do something about it and after a bit of shopping around, we got in touch with Lifespan Kids.

Lifespan Kids have a great range of equipment for children and we looked through the rage a bit and decided to have someone come out and take a look at our garden. They ended up suggesting we get a cubby, swings and a trampoline and helped us with layout and all the rest. In a few weeks everything was set up and ready to rock and the only challenge now is getting the kids inside for dinner.

Home Gym Equipment

A home gym was something I’ve always dreamed of and when we finally got the renovations done, that dream was realized. I spent a lot of time researching different bits of equipment and have opted to slowly acquire top quality gear as our funds permit it.

My partner in crime for this endeavour quickly became an online company, Lifespan Fitness.

Lifespan Fitness have pretty much everything you could ever need and go right up to professional grade equipment including Treadmills, Cross Trainers, Exercise Bikes and Rowing Machines.

You get to make a pretty good saving because they do everything online but being in Australia, there is till someone around to arrange everything and help you troubleshoot with installation etc.

If you’re after gym equipment they are about as good as it gets, look them up!

All the cafes and restaurants around my office just serve up crap and it can make it really hard to stay on the straight and narrow. When I’m organised I bring my own lunch but some days are just to hectic and for these I always keep a fresh Dineamic meal on hand. Read more
