Today I have something special to share. When I was putting together the Not Just a FIFO series I contacted my beautiful blogging friend Reannon from She Who Rambles as her family had been rolling with the FIFO lifestyle for quite a few years. She was done with the routine of it all and thankfully are having a little break but she was super keen to share a story.
My good friend Danielle is one of those people who likes a well planned life and she isn’t a fan of spontaneity. When we worked together I would joke about Danielle’s use of spreadsheets.

Except when it comes to naming our babies. My husband and I chose the baby name secret path after hearing friends tell us of their unfortunate conversation with their family when
It’s the final countdown in KOG Cottage (our house). We are under 4 weeks until d-day (I should say estimated though) and excitement is building. Maybe a little nerves too.

My plentiful to-do list has included ‘Pack hospital bag’ for a couple of weeks now. I think it is time to actually pull my finger out, pack it and put a line through the task! How good is that feeling! Putting a line through something on your to do list, especially if it has been there for a while. Oh so good, but I digress…
