A day in my life

Around here lately…

School holidays. Need I say more. What a long week that was! My boys don’t go back to school until next Thursday though, so we still have a few days to get through. Lucky they have footy games today and tomorrow to keep them busy! I’ve done a road trip to Albury with the boys too… My sister has been in labour twice in the last week (33 weeks and then at 34 weeks!). Too early! I’ve been sleeping with one eye open because she lives in Albury and I need to get there for the birth! She’s home from hospital and baby is still snuggling for now. She’s exhausted as you can imagine. A couple more weeks would be good…

Hi there! How was your week? Mine was just a normal week, plodding along, dealing with kids, working, cleaning and feeding the tribe! My big boy and his Dad have gone off to Bowral for 4 days to play cricket, so it’s quiet here just with 2 kids. So peaceful and there has been no fighting and yelling. What does that say?? Haaaaa…. Although I have the 2 of them sleeping with me and they steal the covers and make noises all night! Today we’re off to School Mass this morning, then I am taking the little 2 kids to watch Kung Fu Panda 3. Have you see it? I love the movies (I only go for the popcorn!). Here…

Howdy! I’m still here! I’ve been taking a little siesta from my blog as other cool stuff has taken over, but that’s been nice for a change. I’m going to start working in another job (out of the house) starting in the next few weeks and I am so pumped. I’ve been looking for a change and something else to do for a while now. But I didn’t know what I wanted. I’m going to start working with a builder and his clients (house plans, colours etc), so if you’re in Wagga and want to build a new house, then please see meeeee!!! I am still going to be blogging – that won’t change! I still love this little space…

The old mojo has escaped me this month! Argh! I am sure it will come back… but it’s been a long 2 weeks with 2 hospital trips. Yep, I was back there again over the weekend for a sleepover. Hopefully 2nd time round I’m good now. Here are some snap of what’s been happening around here lately… My baby is always just there. Everywhere I look. Boredom and waiting for the postie. That’s how we roll. Tex made me eggs for dinner when I was sick. It’s been so flipping hot! I’ve missed a fair bit of it being stuck in hospital or inside so I think I’ve been lucky there. My Mumma came to help out for a day….

A day in my life, Crohn's Disease

I’ve been feeling under the weather

I’ve been under the weather – fancy not blogging for almost a week! Sorry guys, but I couldn’t bring myself to write anything this week. Last week I started feeling unwell, I knew I had an abscess forming. If you’re new to my blog, I have had crohn’s disease for 20 years. Anyhoo, I knew the drill with the abscess. Doctor and antibiotics. I still wasn’t well, so I did 2nd doctor visit to my surgeon (as my normal crohn’s doc is in Melbourne and I wasn’t well enough to get down there). We added more antibiotics and I was to hang tight. Over the weekend I started getting worse. I’ve been septic twice before, so I knew the signs….

Hi! I’ve been a bit quieter than usual over here on my bloggy. That’s not like me! But that’s the way life goes sometimes isn’t it? I’ve been working on some new cool projects and one of those includes shopping/dressing/styling an entirely empty and brand new display home. Can’t wait to share all of that with you. It’s so exciting! Here are some pictures from around here lately…. It’s been SO hot here this week. 40 degrees! We are all melting and uncomfortable. … I’ve been pushing out the work from in here… … He ate the ping pong ball. BUSTED. … He rules the house. He was snoring and slept in this exact position for an hour. … Does…

menu plan
A day in my life, At Home

I need to menu plan. HELP!

Do you menu plan? If so, how far in advance? I am shocking at organising what we are having for dinner in advance. I always wing it. I usually decide some time around lunch what we’re having (if anything exciting and this means I’ll go to the supermarket), or I say we’ll just use what we have here. I have a bit coming up in the next few months and it will require me to be out of my normal daily routine. Because I generally work from home it’s been easy to whip to the shops and grab food here and there. But with a new schedule coming up, that won’t be possible. And I don’t think I can handle…

Hey there! Thanks for stopping by today. How are things in your neck of the woods? My boys are finally back to school and in a proper and busy routine. They don’t sit still, so being busy is the key to controlling them! They’ve grown so much and I can’t believe they aren’t little anymore. Chevy is in year 4, Cruise is in year 8 and Tex is in year 5. So, this means I am also back at school pick up every day waiting in the street. Do your kids catch a bus? I sometimes wish mine could, but we live too far from our school and they’d have to catch 2 buses and would never make it home in…

Happy Aussie Day! What are you up to today? We can’t ever go past Australia Day without a BBQ and a catch up with friends so we’re off to do that today. I hope the supermarket is open because I got in to bed last night and realised I needed food for today and didn’t get any! Whoops. Anyhoo, what’s been happening in your house lately? School holidays are about to wrap up. I really need to get back to a routine. Whilst I loved having them home, we are all bored and sick of each other. It’s time to sink our teeth back in to real life. Here are some snap from around here lately… Bunnings is our usual…

A day in my life

I always doubt my big plans

Are you a goal setter? A planner? Do you read all the motivation stuff going around and try to “create your own frequency”? I just don’t know where I sit with it all most of the time. I always preach the “ASK, BELIEVE, RECEIVE” mantra, but sometimes I just don’t know and doubt it all! Like there was a time I ripped up all my goals and started again. And over the last few weeks I have been writing stuff down (the new year and all that) and setting some goals. I even bought the #BlogYeah planner (and it’s a beauty!). I started writing in it too because it’s so pretty and organised. I wanted this year to be good…
