    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 #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…

    The Happy List #15

    Guys. I’m germ infested and it sucks! Not to mention, that time of the month showed her face at exactly the same time. I’m an image of wonder and joy right now. Despite all of that, I have got some things to put on the happy list. Here goes… Gossip Girl (xoxo)  Maybe it’s because I’m only half alive (and therefore only able to use half of my brain – if that), but I am enjoying Gossip Girl for the first time. It’s melodramatic, over the top, far removed from my own world (on so many levels haha) and yet I am sucked in. It’s about all I can handle…

    How I cope with winter illness stir-craziness.

      I am not a winter person. I have learnt how to embrace it and try to enjoy it anyway, but it is a time fraught with danger. Germs flying about everywhere. No place is safe. No person is safe! It’s just par for the course, really. Winter = cold and flu season. As an adult, I’ve been getting a flu shot annually and while it doesn’t work for everyone, I feel thankful that it has seemed to work quite well for me. Mr Unprepared seems to have mixed results, but nothing too full on has hit him since he started having them, so that’s probably a positive sign. But…

    The Happy List #4

      As I type this, the Little Mister has emerged from his bed with the beginnings of a cold and Mr Unprepared has been quarantined in our bedroom for two nights with a stomach bug. It has not been a very relaxing weekend, with me chasing everyone with hand sanitiser, terrified about the fact that gastro germs can stay alive on household surfaces (or any surfaces for that matter) for two weeks!! TWO WEEKS. Yep. I googled it and I am glad I did, because I don’t think many people are aware of that fact (or was it just me?). I can’t wait to clean everything from top to bottom!!!…
