I’m back and I’m bad (or, I’m lazy and sorry)

imageThere is so much to catch up on.

Ive been thinking so much about deleting this page, starting again – afresh and all that, but then I thought no, I’ll just leave it, move on and try to make an effort to catch up on things.

so. Much. So, so much.

did you know my wee baby is 13 months?

I can’t believe my last post was in February.

I think having a wee baby and trying to write when you are sleep deprived and struggling with this new wee tiny human and trying to be everything else for everyone just got a bit overwhelming. I was really scared of getting post natal depression, and I thought for a wee bit that I was unwell. Both my mother and sister developed PND, and even had elements of psychosis. I understandably was a bit worried. I haven’t actually shared that with anyone and I guess that’s been a bit of an issue, too. I got out the other side though, so relief!

the turnaround for me was really doing the colour run, and of course for Eli to get a bit older and sleep a bit more regularly. My work was taking over, things were too chaotic, I was struggling with relationships. Things had to simplify and I just had to focus on the wee man, the family, and myself.

but, things are changing all the time here. More work, more fun with the wee man, more work on the house, trying to get it all right and all in order.

theres going to be so much to talk about in the next while, and I look forward to sharing this journey with you!

See you again soon!

Currently…

Oh this photo cracks me up and makes me SO happy at the same time.

It’s a slow day at the office today, so I look inspiration from the lovely Danielle at Sometimes Sweet for this post. Sometimes it’s just nice to write about what you are doing, even when you aren’t really technically doing anything! That’s the story of my life at the moment, and I think I could make busy/lazy a trend/lifestyle.

Watching: The Amazing Race, Australia. It’s the new My Kitchen Rules replacement in my life and it’s preforming well so far. Thank god for live record, etc, we have been able to record our favourite shows and watch them when it suits. So, to add to The Amazing Race we also have Homeland, Miami Ink (an oldie but a goodie), Parks and Recreation, Game of Thrones (Nic makes me watch it, but I am kinda getting in to it), and as lame as it is….police 10/7. 

Listening to: The sound of a tuned piano! I finally got my piano tuned and have been playing a bit lately. Unfortunately she has some health issues, and I will have to pay for a refurbish in time, but I am happy with it being tuned a semitone lower than it is supposed to be in the meantime. I am currently looking through my Cole Porter songbook for easy songs to start with. Oh, and I have my first voice student coming this afternoon. Hopefully they won’t mind all the boxes around the piano!

Planning: Lots of things! Some of which I can’t tell you about just yet..but soon I will be able share. Other things include applying for life insurance (joy of joys); planning christmas (argh!) in our new environment (I am so excited my Pappy is coming up for it!); looking at travel options for future overseas adventures; thinking of way of conning husband into getting me a french bulldog for christmas (anyone got $3000?)

Thinking about: As broad as it sounds, life. At the moment I am in a really reflective place so I just want to take stock of what I have in my life, and find ways to be the best person that I can. Oh, also I am thinking about the interview I had yesterday and whether it will work out (fingers crossed!)

Looking forward to: Possible employment! And, my Dad coming to visit next week. I’m also excited to get the final touches on my new tattoo hopefully this weekend AND going out for brunch with Nic’s family for his brothers’ birthday.

Reading: Shamefully, nothing. But I think blogs count. So, on my blogroll is Sometimes Sweet, Dainty Squid, Perez Hilton,  Gala Darling, and the blogs of my friends. I am also doing a lot of reading on My Fitness Pal – one of the single most important things for me at the moment (operation: lose weight – so far, it’s working quite well and I am down 5 kilos last time I checked)

Making me happy: The fact that I AM reaching goals; good news in many places; good friends that live close; red bush tea heaping me curb my caffeine addiction; sweet treats; family phone calls; hanging out with Cleo; waiting eagerly for my friends’ wedding festivities; the lavender in bloom outside my window; the weather getting warmer; possibilities that things are going to keep getting better and better for us.

Doing this has suddenly put me in a very good mood. I have had a headache for the last 2 days, and now I feel less tension in my face which has dramatically helped with the pain.

Life is good, you know!

Have a wonderful day,

xx Em.
