So………… I’m back!
The name has changed, the feel has slightly changed and I think over the last 12 months my view of the world has changed.
We have relocated with Husband’s work and I quit my job to be a full time, stay at home mum and I am loving life. It is everything I was hoping it would be. Its not easy every day, but every day produces some of the most magical moments to enjoy and embrace. The community we have found ourselves in is supportive, friendly and we are slowly getting to know people. Zeb has fitted in really well and is loving life here.
I have deleted all my previous posts and archived them somewhere (hopefully) on my computer. I figure I can pull them out whenever I need, but a lot of what I wrote about, the recipes and ideas aren’t relevant right now. I decided to start off with a clean slate. I apologise for the crappy design of the page, I will slowly improve it as I go on
As a way to ease back into things, I thought I would take the lead from Pip at Meet Me at Mike’s and post a brief summary of where I am at.
Making : A hand print Christmas tree as we won’t be here for Christmas. The first year since being back from the UK we don’t have a real tree
Cooking : Real food
Drinking : Matso’s Ginger Beer – had a no drinking November, so this was a nice way to celebrate December
Reading: Blogs, Blogs and more Blogs – And ‘The Night Before Christmas’ every night for bedtime story – my favourite!
Wanting: To have my hair cut and my nails done and to shop in a ‘big shop’
Looking: Forward to our trip to Melbourne, Dunsborough and Perth to catch up with our wonderful family and friends
Playing: Modern Rock channel on Foxtel – Metallica, Sonic Youth, Live and Soundgarden – all the goodness of 90s rock
Deciding: What Father Christmas is going to bring Zeb
Wishing: Upon all the shooting stars I see while out helping to tag turtles 3 nights a week
Enjoying: Sunny family days at the yacht club – good food, gorgeous views
Waiting: To hear if I got into the post grad course I applied for – fingers crossed
Loving: Sunny summer days
Pondering: What our next year is going to look like – logistically may be a nightmare!
Watching: Blacklist – addicted and love it!
Hoping: The kittens we recently adopted are finally over their ringworm infestation – urrgghh!!!
Marvelling: At Zeb’s progress and development every single day – little people are awesome!
Needing: A fix of a real shopping mall
Smelling: Freshly brewed coffee
Wearing: Shorts and thongs – EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.
Following: Lots of awesome Primal/Paleo blogs – check out my cool sites list at the top to see who I ♥
Noticing: How fast the year has flown by
Knowing: No matter what next year brings, we will be better for the experience
Thinking: About all the cleaning I need to do before rental inspection on Wednesday
Feeling: Tired and ready for a holiday. Turtle tagging is such an amazing experience, that I am so fortunate to be involved with, but man, I’m exhausted!
Admiring: Husband and his hard working – long, long hours, often no weekends.
Buying: Christmas pressies of course!
Getting: Excited about Christmas. My favourite time of the year – 23 more sleeps!
Opening: The Percy Pigs advent calendar each morning we got from Microwave Jenny from Leeds
Giggling: At some of the things that come out of Zeb’s mouth at the moment – 3 is awesome!!!!
Feeling: Optimistic – I think 2014 is going to be our year. And I hope all your dreams come true too!
Have a great week!
