This time next week we will be buzzing around the kitchen getting a Christmas feast together, or perhaps still cleaning up the wrapping paper off the floor near the tree. I cannot wait! Our dear treasures will be home, plus new friends, so our table will be full.
It is wonderful to be here with you. Grab a cuppa, find a secret place and run away with me for a few minutes.
Whoa! What a week. I hardly know where to begin. It was one of those delightful times when any idealistic version of motherhood is thrown out the window and you are striving with every force inside you not to turn into a monster and sell your children to the nice little old lady with a house made of sweets.
How are you ? Whoosh! What a week! Hasn’t it flown by? I have been doing a lot of juggling this week. Kids coming and going and buzzing around home with their friends. It has been quite the social scene. I managed to sneak in a cup of coffee in town by myself earlier in the week, which helped keep my head above water. As an (excitable) introvert, my cup gets filled with solitude, time alone. It is probably the one thing I crave the most as a busy mother of many. How ironic that we chose to have a zillion children. (Yes, I do have the occasional chuckle over this).
Hello Lovelies. Thank you for joining me here this morning. Grab a cuppa and let’s have a chat.
How has your week been? Mine was pretty good. There was a Covid case at school so the girls spent most of the week at home. Thankfully there was no home learning so the pressure was off. Phew. Instead, I tried to teach them the virtues of housework and having pride in a tidy home. It was such a joy. Their eagerness to learn made our time together so delightful. Afterwards we sat down together and I read aloud while we all drank tea. Oh what a blessed sanctuary is our home.
How are you going? I hope you are all hanging in there with the continued lockdown. It’s been a bit of a topsy turvy ride for this mama bear, as it has for many others I imagine, but with amazing support from the school, realising and accepting my own limitations and taking some time out alone, I am starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel and I think we might just make it through this with all of our sanity in tact!
Hello Lovelies, how has your week been? Another topsy turvy one with Covid wreaking havoc once again. We had our daughter’s 18th planned for today, but needed to cancel as most of her friends were coming from Sydney. As it turns out, we are enjoying glorious rain this weekend anyway, so in a word phew! Not the best weekend for a party as it turns out.
I hope you have all had a great week. Is anyone else looooving the cooler change in the weather? FINALLY!! Let’s hope it settles in and gives me a good reason to get out some winter clothes. Walking around in the cool, crisp air really makes me feel alive. My energy is always revitalised with the absence of sweating (ugh) and the life sucking lethargy of summer. Yep, I’m a winter girl through and through. But that’s just me. I realise most of you humans prefer stinking rotten heat. (I’ve got my eyezzz on you Suzy!! )
Hello Lovelies. How was your week? Mine was full of the usual ups and downs… a few high points, which I will tell you about in a moment, and more than a few episodes that left me shaking my head in disbelief, wondering if this is normal motherhood. Let me explain.
Thank you for taking time out of your busy day to spend a few minutes with me. I am so happy you are here. It has certainly been a long time. My last blog post was in December 2018 and it feels like an age has passed since then. I cannot tell you how excited I am to be back. As with all of life, the journey has been long and winding with many twists and turns.
