I'm combining this week's Friday "things i'm loving" with Paisley Jade & Saturday "i'm grateful for" with Maxabella Loves . . . pleading exhaustion for my bloggie laziness. Things are pretty wild here, i'm really feeling the strain this week of being a solo mummy of 4 children in 2 schools, with different committments & social circles. I have filled in countless forms, cleaned countless rooms, Zumba'd countless jiggles this week. If you can imagine living apart from your husband for 3 years, having to do the bins, the car, the lawns, the garage, the tax & never being able to drop the ball with the discipline on the children, it's full on. I'm 14 months into it & finding my groove again with the school year dominating my routine. It's week 3, i'm grooving.
Today was particularly insane - i drove 200km - morning & afternoon school runs; collect an overcoat for the highschooler's Winter uniform in one direction; a Year 4 Writing Matters book way south; 2+ hours at the gym; fresh food market; fuel; hardware store; take homework to school which was left behind; bakery; post office . . . argh!!
Right now, they are sitting on the shelf. I'll never tire of that lamp - my children check their hair in it every morning!! So that's it from me, grateful i had $15 in my purse to blow on a childhood memory & a lovely tale to tell my children of how we got milk when i was a preschooler. They are not 600ml/ pint sized bottles, but they're very . . . practical??!!
