    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…

It would have been partly for convenience (Mr Unprepared has a big early morning bike ride coming up) and also for a bit of family fun. A chance to get out of our usual little home life bubble. Why not, hey? Kind of a staycation. Sadly, this never eventuated (too complicated)… But…the thing is, TripAdvisor does my head in. I wonder what the hell we did before we had this review system? We just *gasp* winged it?! Now, every…

    Terribly Overtired Twos.

    It’s the afternoon of Mother’s Day and the Little Mister is spent. It has been a few trying weeks of sleepless nights (for everybody) and a weekend filled with lunch time family engagements (read: right over the usual nap time). We’ve reached that point where the Little Mister has become a floppy, whiney mess. It’s actually quite funny. Yes. Funny. Maybe I have a twisted sense of humour (every parent needs one) or maybe I’ve just become delirious with fatigue, but it’s funny. Slapstick comedy at its best. The Little Mister has been lurching all around the house wearing a pathetically sad look on his face. He’ll flop onto the…
