A day in my life

Around here lately (plus the baby!)

If you saw my Instagram/Facebook over the weekend you’d know my sister Amie finally had her baby boy! He’s just divine. He weighed 7 pounds 15 oz (3.6kg) and is perfect in every way! His name is Moss Spencer Godde. See more photos below!… But in the lead up to his birth I spent the week “nesting” haha, and waiting for a phone call. It’s been so cold and wet around here, so much of the kids’ sport training was cancelled during the week so there was a lot of sitting around and EATING. Always food. The display home I am working on has its grand opening coming up this weekend so I’ve been busy organising that and today all the…

The unknown when visiting the Dentist!

We’ve had a bit of a run on the dentist and the doctor lately. There seems to always be something to pay for! My husband has something wrong with this heel and we thought it was a spur, but turns out (after 5 doctor’s visits and an ultrasound) that it’s achilles bursitis and he needs some physio. Anyway, we can handle that because you “kind of” know what a doctor’s and physio bill will cost you each time you visit. But about 2 weeks ago I had a terrible toothache and obviously needed to see the dentist. I don’t mind going to the dentist but I am always petrified of what it might cost me! You never know what’s wrong with…

What a week!

What a week guys! Where do I even start?? Ok, I’ll start with my sister going in to labour (I’ll put you out of your misery now and tell you it didn’t end up happening!) and me driving there as fast as I could to be with her. The poor thing has been having contractions and false starts since 33 weeks! She’s now technically 38.5 weeks and on Thursday morning she rang me at 5am and asked if I was ready to come (I live about 1.5 hrs away)? We decided to both get our kids off to school and then she’d call to let me know if it was another false start or the real deal. At 8.45am she…

A camping & fishing video

Brought to you by Officeworks. A few weeks ago Officeworks challenged me to fulfill a project or hobby that I love. You can read it here. I was asked to think about how I might use my downtime to do something I’d been putting off for ages. I was asked to think about how I might use my downtime to do something I’d been putting off for ages. I wanted to get my boys involved because they love technology and gadgets and being outside. My son recently purchased a GoPro HERO4 Session. This nifty little camera has awed me in its capabilities and even though he technically owns it, that doesn’t mean we all can’t share it! I love piecing videos together…

I’m joining The Remarkables Group

A couple of weeks ago I kind of fell off the couch when a lovely email arrived asking if I’d be interested in joining the team at The Remarkables Group. Now what does all this mean, and who are they? The Remarkables Group is a talent agency for influencers. I’ve been admiring their work from afar for years. They are very good at creating remarkable influencer-brand relationships and this is right up my alley. I’ve been blogging away here since 2006 and I really haven’t stepped away from it. Later this year that means I’ve been hanging out here for about 10 years. WOAH. Since my stint on The Block in 2011, my blog took a “commercial” turn and I started…

A day in my life, My Family

My boys have grown…

On Mother’s Day I managed to get this snap taken with my boys. Took us a few turns (rogue hand, stupid face…)! I look at this photo and can’t even believe they are so big. My eldest is 14. He is 1cm taller than me already! He makes me stand back-to-back often so we can check and last week he got me in height. I’m not short either, so he is going to be tall because he hasn’t even nearly finished growing yet! My middle one is 11. He too is a tall and big boy! He will tell me 100 times a day he loves me. He yells out “who loves Katrina?” Then answers himself back with “ah everybody…

A day in my life, At Home

I do like to clean (call me crazy!)

Here are some snaps from around my house this week… call me crazy but  I do like to clean! Yes, I live in a house full of boys, but that doesn’t mean everything needs to be putrid all of the time (well sometimes IT IS total slothness around here!). This was the first week the boys were back at school fully, so I had a chance to clean up, rearrange, fluff the cushions and wash stuff properly. Last night you should have seen my washing pile and the grass through my laundry. There’s usually a constant pile of footy jumpers on rotation to be washed, or packed in to bags for the weekend. 😉 What a riveting Friday night I had…

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…

A day in my life

Around here lately…

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…

Around here lately

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…
