Hello, my name’s Laura, I live in sunny Queensland with my very wonderful husband Som and our two very mischievous cats, Opal and Byron. I’ve been lucky to have grown up in South East Queensland with its amazing beaches, hinterland and city close by. We are a pretty busy family with lots (probably too much!) time spent at work – as we are reminded by our cats when we get home and their dinner is late – well, really they remind Som – I’ve managed to escape the task of feeding our moggies and emptying their litter trays.
Recently we toured Italy and France, by nearly all forms of transport – train, car and plane, and saw some amazing sights and countryside. We (mainly I) ate lots of delicious pastries from France’s patisseries, not forgetting the hot chocolates, which did become a daily habit (for me). However it was nice to come back to our home comforts and, in the beginning, aloof cats who didn’t want to leave their comfortable cattery.
I keep as active as possible which I believe is really important as a HSPer – I do daily exercise on a treadmill and elliptical (my favourite), as well as some weights when I go to the gym, which I go to once or twice a week. Swimming is excellent during the summer and I try and add in there some stretching exercises, which I do need to do more of (reminds self).
Thanks for taking time to read this and best wishes,
