    2019 Weekly Wrap Up #16

    My 16th week of 2019 was a pretty good one! I feel like that’s been a rarity this year, unfortunately. Not that our problems have been massively devastating (something I am very grateful for), but it’s just been a weirdly stressful year, where all the little not-so-totally-awesome things have kind of added up and accumulated more than I’d like! It wasn’t perfect (nothing is and that’s OK) but it was really great to have some little wins and of course it was Easter time and my birthday week! This has been a nice one to relive, as I’ve read back through my paper journal and started typing… If you’re not…

    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…

    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…

    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…

    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…

    2019 Weekly Wrap Up #8

    It’s amazing how recording a little bit about my day – every single day without fail – in my little paper journal has really made me look closely at my life and how I want to live it. There’s nowhere to hide from the not so great stuff that could be improved on and there’s an amazing honesty about it. There’s also something good in every day and there’s been so much clarity about the make up of my 2019 so far. To be honest, this year has been more stressful than it should have been and I think I might have just ‘got used to it’ and become more…

    2019: Weekly Wrap Up #7

    How are you? I’m typing this after 5 hours of sleep. I am so tired but so wired right now which seems to be the story of my life! Anyway, here is my recap of the 7th week of 2019. I’ve fallen behind but I’m stubborn if nothing else, so I am just going to write these posts at my own pace! I’ve been doing this thing where I have challenged myself to write a little page in a paper journal every day of 2019. I don’t share everything publicly, so think of this blog series as a bit of a highlight reel (not to say that everything I share…

    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 5.

    This week was a pretty busy one! I was well aware it was the last week of the school holidays and I had so much to tick off! Here’s my wrap up of week 5 of 2019 (which includes the end of the longest month of the year and the Little Mister’s first day of year 2)… January 29 – Tuesday This day was a terrible day on paper. The Little Miss had just had a really rough night and had to have her immunisations (right on her morning nap time too)! When we got to the clinic there was a 20 minute wait (at least) and she was restless…

    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…
