A new week and a new symptom: vertigo. And not just 'I feel dizzy when I stand up' but more like 'the room is spinning out of control and I'm either going to vomit or pass out' kind of thing. Oh, and another virus has attacked our household. So I have that to look forward to as well.  I feel like everything after April this year has been a bit of a right-off. It's been three plus months of intense morning sickness, looking after sick kids, getting infected from sick kids, feeling like things are starting to looking up, then succumbing to another virus (repeat). I'm extremely jealous of those gorgeous, glowing, gracious mothers-to-be at the moment. And on the other hand I'm feeling horrible for not being more appreciative of this incredible journey. However, I find comfort in obsessing over cute baby clothes, feeling little kicks and imagining the little person that will be joining our family next year. Better days are ahead, I'm sure.

This week's baby name suggestions from Fox: Fruit Salad, Mummy 2 and Curtain Rod.


Book Week 2017

Confession: I suck at being a school mum. Like, I really suck.  I'm not by any stretch of the imagination an organised person. But that's OK, I have strengths in other areas. And my daughter never misses out. She might hand in her excursion note a little late but she still gets to go on the excursion. I might leave her Book Week costume to the last minute but I will work extra hard to make sure it's finished for the day of the parade. Even if it means hauling my aching, pregnant self to the local shopping mall on a three hour hunt to find a red and white striped shirt (which seemed to be in abundance until I started to look for one). And then spending the rest of the day despairing because there are absolutely no beanies for sale at this time of year. Luckily, I remembered I could easily crochet one (a skill that has been largely useless up until this point). And as always, the aching legs, crochet-induced RSI and extra stress wrinkles were all worth it, just to see her excited little face on the morning of the parade.
