    2019: Weekly Wrap Up #6

    I’m falling a bit behind on these weekly updates on the mundanity of my life. Oops! I thought about chucking this series in, because I am not really sure if anyone even reads it or finds it remotely interesting, but then I realised I am frickin’ stubborn and a part of me would bug out about not completing a task I’ve set myself! 😝 So here goes… February 5 – Tuesday Today was a pretty damn good day! The Little Miss was settling into the Little Mister’s routine surprisingly well, fitting two day sleeps in during school hours. The Little Mister came home from his 2nd day of school really…

    2019: Week 4

    Wow, is January not the longest month of the year? I am not hating it, but it’s so strange how everything slows down at this time of the year! Maybe it’s just because I’m a school mum? Who knows. I wondered when I’d start to wish for school to go back and I am really quite impressed with myself that the feeling only kicked in this week haha. Here’s my wrap up of the 4th week of 2019… January 22 – Tuesday I had started the week feeling really overwhelmed but knowing I had made a commitment to meet my friend Carly and her daughter H kept me going. I…

    2019: Week 3

    Hey! How are you? I hope you’re doing OK. Here’s my wrap up of the third week of 2019… January 15 – Tuesday We struggled through this day. I realised I was suffering from the January Blues (it’s a thing I get OK?) and I was getting a bunch of anxious, negative thoughts swirling through my head. It wasn’t helped by the fact that the Little Miss was not getting any sleep! The house next door was being worked on by tradies who had a very loud drill that they only used at nap time. Of course! I decided we needed a circuit breaker and we headed to my mum’s…

    2019: Week 2.

    You guys. I am so impressed with myself. I have written in my (paper) journal every single day since 2019 began without ever forgetting! I am really enjoying the ritual, actually. I sometimes wish the pages were bigger (they’re A5 – half an A4 size) but then I think I would not be able to sustain this habit if I felt like I could to write a novel every night. And trust me, I would. So here’s a wrap up of the week that has just been… January 8 – Tuesday We had an ‘at home’ day. The Little Miss finally started saying “mum” a lot. In fact, after months…

    2019: Week 1.

    Wow, you guys. We did it. We saw in the beginning of another year. I hope the first week has been good to you! I have been excited because I have finally been able to write in my new diary/journal. For a stationery fan (stan?) this is obviously a very big deal and a highlight of a new year! I also love the special pen my son gave me for Christmas – because I’m a ‘writer’. The joy of a good pen! It’s so fancy that you buy ink refills for it and everything! Part of the reason I started the journal was not just for the romance of writing…
