Sophie’s Top 5
Girls Night In newsletter; lots of good things to read, listen to, think about and practice on a Friday night – when you’d prefer to stay in.
All the things that Helen Redfern does; I love her blog, A Bookish Baker , her Instagram feed, the sound of her ecourse and her newsletter. So much goodness here and she puts a lot of effort and herself into all she does.
Food 52 Cookbook club. – such a fun idea and great way to build an online community with like minded people.
Our Road Trip playlist on Spotify. Some fun tunes to sing along to on long car trips!

The Guilty Feminist podcast is equal parts thoughtful and hilarious. Thankyou Monique Bowley at the ABC for the recommendation. And another that came from here which is full parts hilarious is The Baby Sitters Club Club for my fellow 90’s kids who loved Ann M. Martin’s Baby Sitter’s Club books.
We have known about this for a while but I have to say Instagram’s new function to follow hashtags has given me the ability to search for new people to follow once again.
We have recently been (so kindly) on the receiving end of a voucher to The Dinner Ladies – a wonderful organisation in Sydney who organise home cooked meals, fresh and frozen for anyone in need. A very thoughtful gesture for anyone who is in hospital, or just had a baby, been injured or having a tough time.
And finally I cannot get enough of roadside flowers at the moment. Florence and I have spend many long hours in the car and my eyes are always drawn roadside. I’m always thinking, what can I forage here? It is endless and I love it.
