So, we have had a huge month. We moved house on Good Friday, immediately all got gastro, then a week later I hosted a huge party for my 30th birthday. What a start to the year, amiright? It has been beyond hectic and I feel like things will hopefully start slowing down soon. Or not.
My mind is chockers so consider this post a brain dump (I actually hate that term because DUMP is never a good choice of word).
- Jed is sort of toilet training and is determined to do wees standing up. He is one year old and about three feet tall so it’s not really working for him. Cute though.
- I got my nails done for my birthday and they are this gel stuff, very fancy. I love looking down at them and feeling like a glam grown up.
- We are all going to Bali in June and I literally own zero hot weather gear, so checked out the Myer sale today and found a pair of cute denim shorts on sale for $19 down from $80. And they were size six. I am not a size six by any means, so thanks Country Road for the positive boost.
- My car is so insanely messy right now. It is filthy and I am horrified, but clearly not enough to do anything about it.
- I am loving living here. We have seen rock wallabies and kangaroos in the front yard, a brown snake and heaps of cool little birds.
- Speaking of snakes, Jed is pretty into snakes and whenever he sees a millipede he’s like ‘Mum! Snake! Sssssss!’ That’s all very cute, but yesterday he was up near our washing line (ie literally in the bush with a stunning view of the Dandenongs) and came down and says nonchalantly, “Snake up dere mum.” Is is a millipede? Or a freaking tiger snake? We will never know.
- I am doing quite a bit of writing over at the Creative Women’s Circle blog. I love chatting to interesting dames about their creative practices.
- I have been getting really into meditating using the Headspace program. It’s really practical and simple, and doesn’t have any of the woo woo shite that some other meditation apps love.
- I want to do a bit of a reno update post, with pics of our new house, but we all know that it will be a crappy iPhone photoshoot so I’m putting it off. That said, the house is looking mighty fine and I am loving myself sick in this new space.
- Archie and I spent the day together yesterday and it was ace. We don’t get much one on one time so a whole day of library visits, cafe hangs and Legoing was perfect. He is turning out to be such a cool little person.
I think that’s all. Now I’m going to watch Broad City and crochet in my dressing gown, like the 30 year old nanna that I am.
