    2019 Weekly Wrap Up #14

    The 14th week of 2019 was full of anxiety, but also ended up being surprisingly productive. Also, there was that time on the Monday when the Little Mister randomly spewed and I actually saw it as a blessing in disguise… Anyway, we’ll get to that bit! 2 April – Tuesday I was starting to get anxious about starting at the gym this coming Thursday. I know it sounds silly but I feel like I have an insurmountable list of tasks to tick off before I can even get started. I messaged my friends S and A to ask questions (silly ones to regular gym goers I am sure) and they…

    Happy List #54

    Oh hey! I haven’t done one of these in a long time, but I’m feeling the need to focus on some positive stuff after a chaotic couple of weeks! The whole gratitude/positivity thing is not for everyone (for some it feels forced or whatever), but it often helps bring me back to a good head space when I’ve been feeling anxious or angry or just out of sorts. At the end of most days, we practice ‘3 things’ with the Little Mister. We will tell him three things that made us happy during the day and he will tell us his. It’s my not so stealthy way of trying to…

    2019 Weekly Wrap Up #13

    OK, so I have fallen way behind in my weekly chatty life updates. I am still only up to the end of March, you guys. I think sometimes I put off writing these posts because some weeks are better than others and some are a little hard to relive. I also know these posts are probably not always exciting. Just gonna own that and be OK with it. That’s life! But the thing is, it’s a record for me to keep and sometimes it inspires me to write other content too! Also, I know that I have to write what I would read, if that makes sense. It’s probably not…

    2019 Weekly Wrap Up #12

    I have to say, week 12 of 2019 wasn’t much better than weeks 10 and 11. I was starting to think that maybe this year isn’t turning out as amazing as I’d hoped. Seeing every single day broken down in writing can be confronting! Which makes me wonder why we are always so obsessed with categorising a whole calendar year as ‘good’ or ‘bad’. It’s kind of meaningless if you think about it! I’ve decided to live my life as best I can and maybe the highlights and lowlights will just reveal themselves to me by the 31st of December, but for now life is just life and we all…

    Before I forget: 5 useful things for people with babies.

    OK, so time is moving faaaaaaast right now. How can the Little Miss be 15 months old – a toddler with attitude – already? I am trying (through the sleepless nights and the teething and the weird fussy food moments) to soak up every moment of her little-ness. I don’t want to forget! She’s the precious completion of our family so I don’t want time to get away from me and then I’m suddenly a mother of teenagers and I’m like WTF JUST HAPPENED? I mean, I know that will still actually happen, but I want to remember the ‘little’ moments well. I’ve been thinking a lot about what I’ve…

    2019 Weekly Wrap Up #11

    Oh, hey there. This is a blog series where I’ve challenged myself to record the daily happenings of my life for a whole year. I’ve been jotting things down in a paper journal and then sharing weekly updates on my blog. It’s been an interesting experience (for me anyway haha)! It’s also a way for you to catch up on my life and see what the hell has been going on. The 11th week of 2019 was not for the faint hearted (ie me haha). A sleepless child and weird illnesses were the unfortunate theme! Here is the week of 12 March – 18 March… 12 March – Tuesday The…

    Kez’s Anxiety vs. Gym

    Hi, I’m Kez and I get weird whenever I’m about to try something I’ve never done before. Like freaking out about where I will park when I drive somewhere I’ve never been or turning up somewhere like 6 hours too early because being early feels like the only thing I can control about a new situation. Well, this week I finally joined a gym. And let me tell you, it was an ordeal for me. At first I was all fired up about it and ready to jump into it with gusto. I had tried one too many times to do a home work out, with my son nagging me…

    2019 Weekly Wrap Up #10

    The 10th week of 2019 was a bit of a shit show (literally at one point). If I never have to repeat that again I will be a happy woman. Still, I am glad that there were some truly great moments tucked away in there. Those moments are the things you can hold onto when you’re having a not-so-great time, for sure! March 5 – Tuesday I had a sore shoulder today. Woke up that way. I think I slept funny or had strained something. It made it a bit difficult to look after the Little Miss, who needs to be lifted and carried a lot. I took the Little…

    How I feel about my body after having two babies.

    There’s nothing I love more than a good Chrissy Teigen tweet. If you’re not familiar, where have you been?? Kidding. If you aren’t familiar with her, she’s a hilarious multi talented woman (and mother of two) who just happens to be married to singer John Legend. She’s massive on Twitter, you guys. This morning I woke up to find reason #21937 to love her. the thinnest I’ve ever been was right after Luna. Postpartum depression. I’LL TAKE THESE POUNDS AND THIS FEELING! — christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) March 30, 2019 Luna is her first child and Miles is her second (a little baby John Legend clone). Chrissy was first known to…

    2019: Weekly Wrap Up #9

    Here’s a re-cap of my 9th week of 2019. It was very productive, despite my anxiety popping up here and there. I think the previous couple of weeks had really knocked me around. February 26 – Tuesday Today was one of those awesome ‘smug mummy’ days. You know when you feel like just for those few moments you were nailing it as a parent? Like you actually felt like a real grown up parent? via GIPHY The Little Miss had her routine appointment with the community health nurse and everything went really well. She was hitting all of the developmental targets and she was really engaging and well behaved (except…
