It has been quite some time since I have put together one of these posts (original taking stock idea was from Pip) but I thought it was fitting. Right now I am trying to realign myself. I have just hit week 4 of one of the worse
Right now I am trying to realign myself. I have just hit week 4 of one of the worse flus/coughs/lurgies/I-don’t-know-just-leave-my-body I have ever had. It really isn’t something I say about all my ailments (or maybe it is). I just want to get better and am over “riding the wave” because I am slapping into the face of said wave unable to ride it!
I might be in week 4 of it but if we tally up the household we have been running sickness after sickness for simply too many months now. It’s time for a huge cleansing when I can muster the energy.
I have been unable to be here as much as I would like. Brain power is at a minimum. Luckily I could talk a leg off a chair no matter what state I am in and the podcast is still being released weekly.
This is what I have been up to so far in May (and a chunk of April).
Making: my own crown for Mother’s Day. Girls gotta do…
Cooking: I have started using Hello Fresh and love how it inspires me to try new things plus the produce delivered straight to my door is super fresh (if you are keen to try it too you can get $35 off your first box using this referral code ZDYKJ6. Not sponsored or anything, I decided to try it and liked it and I have this referral code.)
Drinking: 1/4 teaspoon of sodium ascorbate mixed with orange juice every half hour. I was supposed to do this until I had to go to the loo for number 3’s… yet to happen.
Reading: #Girlboss and I am really loving it! Worthy of the hype if it’s your thing.
Wanting: to just freaking get better!!
Looking: not the best.
Playing: with Leni’s Disney Little People Princess Castle. I decided she (ahem, ok, I) need all the princesses.
Deciding: which judge is my favourite on The Voice this year. I think my heart will stick with the Maddens but I don’t mind the bluntness of Jessie.J.
Wishing: for the Wellness Fairy to pay a visit.
Enjoying: seeing Ari’s face light up with excitement when we talk about all the cool things happening each day at kindy.
Waiting: for my Mother’s Day sleep in.
Liking: idea that cooler weather is (supposedly) around the corner.
Wondering: if my Doctors appointment tomorrow will be a waste of time.
Loving: the peace with both kids in bed.
Buying: nothing because check out cringing…
Watching: The Voice, LOVE on Netflix and new KUWTK, woot!
Hoping: I am the tail end of this illness run.
Marvelling: at the fact that I swear Ari grew an inch on Saturday night.
Cringing: at the traffic fine that the Mr got sent this week…
Wearing: Possibly too much lycra at the moment.
Sorting: washing because that shit slows for no-one!
Getting: prepared for working a Bunnings BBQ this weekend. 550 sausages ordered. Drinks sorted. Lists for all the rest.
Bookmarking: this Mother’s Day reading with Tyler Henry. I can’t wait for season 2 of Hollywood Medium.
Coveting: these shoes, or in black and white.
Disliking: all this election talk and we have such a long way to go till it calms, a little.
Opening: surprise mail.
Feeling: I don’t think I need to reiterate.
Snacking: on not much but I did break and buy a big bag of mozzarella sticks from Costco the other week.
I have one more week to go before the Mr is home from another round of FIFO life. Unfortunately, we have had no break since the gastro outbreak but I am hanging out for additional time in bed on his return.
Cheer me up with what you are up to this month. What have you been read or watching and loving the pants off?
