    Taking Stock: July 2019

    Oh, hey there! How are you? We’re just kicking off the first week of the school holidays here! I’m trying not to be an anxious idiot about it. Often I stress about whether we’re doing too much, not enough etc etc. It’s ridiculous. We will all be just fine! I forget our kids are so lucky – we travel or go camping on SO many school holidays throughout the year! A little break from doing that won’t kill anyone! I think some of the guilt comes from when I was pregnant with the Little Miss and didn’t feel up to much, so it made me feel like I was letting…

    Taking Stock: September 2018

    Holy crap, it’s the first day of spring and the sun is actually out. Kind of. Like when I typed that last sentence, a cloud went over. But it’s good. No rain on a weekend day is fine by me! I always feel weird talking about the first day of spring because we all know it doesn’t actually get really good until at least October. It’s nice that everybody is so optimistic, though. Anyway, it’s time for me to ‘take stock’ again. Here’s what’s happening right now… Making:¬†healthier food choices over the last couple of days has really made a difference for me. I’ve lost 900g! I just hope I…

    Taking Stock: July 2018

    Disclaimer: This blog post took 24 hours to write, so forgive me if timelines seem a bit off! It’s the first Monday of the school holidays, you guys. Today has been declared a PJs day for the Little Mister and I will be glad to not leave the house in this very rainy weather! I’ve been awake since 3am so I’m sure I’ll still be TOTALLY coherent by this evening, right? It’s also the second day of July, so I’d like to take stock again (I do it every couple of months)! You’re probably familiar with this by now. I just capture a moment/day in my life (let’s be real…

    Taking Stock: May 2018.

    I’m so excited. It’s Saturday! Today I get to go to the football (AFL) with a friend and be my kid free self for a bit. Yay! It’s time for me to ‘take stock’ again! Does anybody even read these? ūüėā Making:¬†no progress with my resolution to exercise more. Oops. I really hope incidental exercise is helping. I’ll get there! Logistics! Cooking:¬†nothing for dinner is my favourite thing to do these days. Last night was a shop bought coleslaw mix with a BBQ chicken. Yassss. Drinking:¬†some cider these days. I am yet to have a full blown, legit mojito! That’s just criminal, right? Reading:¬†‘Fight Like a Girl’ by Clementine Ford.…

    Taking Stock: March 2018

    Sorry to say something so clich√© but where the fuck has the year gone?? I had a baby in January and suddenly it’s Autumn and Easter is coming! Yesterday, the Little Miss turned 6 weeks old. Which makes it about a month since I blogged last! I’m stealing a little early morning time while I can and I am going to hope and pray to baby jeebus that this doesn’t end up in my drafts folder like the last blog post I attempted five weeks in haha. So, anyhow…I’m about to take stock, y’all. You probably know the drill. I do this every couple of months to capture a moment…

    Taking Stock: January 2018

    Ah, it’s a new year! Today is the first day back at work for most people – my thoughts and prayers are with you all! While I am not back at work in the paid sense, I am using this time to try to get my head back in the game when it comes to sorting stuff out before the baby comes and just generally trying to feel like an organised human being with some type of routine! I couldn’t help myself today. I changed the look of my blog. It’s this weird thing I do each year. I probably didn’t need to, but it gives me the feeling of…

    Taking Stock: November 2017.

    How is it November?! I’m not complaining, though. I need this year to fly by! I want to meet my baby and I want my rash to go away! Not going to lie. It’s been a bit rough. But I’m here and I’m fighting. Most of the time. I mean, occasionally I have a cry in the bath and feel like my whole world is caving in, but I have a support system second to none and I am very grateful. It’s time for me to take stock again (as I do every couple of months). Here’s where I’m at… Making:¬†social plans for the next couple of weeks has made…

    Taking Stock: September 2017.

    Hello, beautiful people! Every couple of months I like to capture a moment in time by ‘taking stock’ (a great idea thought up by Pip at Meet Me at Mike’s). It allows me to slow down and really record what life is like on a particular day and I know it’s self indulgent but I enjoy reading these back months later! Here we go… Making:¬†my mind up to make the best of this Monday wasn’t really easy this morning but I think I’m getting there! It’s been an exhausting couple of weeks. Cooking: a good old pasta bake from a jar tonight. A crowd pleaser that will hopefully go down…

    Taking Stock: May 2017

    It’s May! I feel like this year is zooming by, but I’m not mad about it. It’s time for me to take stock, like I do every couple of months! It’s a great way to capture what’s happening in an exact moment of my life. I find I actually get quite REAL in these posts for some reason. You would probably find out some little things about me that I don’t mention anywhere else. Or not. Who knows. Let’s find out! Making:¬†time to catch up with myself on this lovely Friday. It’s lovely because it’s Friday and I have a day off from work or boring obligations! Cooking:¬†is fun on…

    Taking Stock: March 2017

    It’s March already. What the hell. It’s shaping up to be a crazy month and quite honestly, the name ‘Awesomely Unprepared’ has never fit me so well as it does now. It’s time to take stock and capture this moment in time! Making: The most of the little time I have right now before the Little Mister wakes up for the day. Cooking: All the ‘sometimes’ foods more than sometimes. Must try harder to keep my diet (not ‘diet’ as in fad diet – ‘diet’ as in nutritional intake) on track. Drinking: More water. Reading: Amy Schumer’s book. STILL. OK, so not really actively reading it. BUT I WILL FINISH…
