DAY 11: Miss A’s Kindergarten Graduation (30-Day Personal Blog Challenge)

Today was Miss A’s kindergarten graduation (for those of you not from Australia, kindergarten here is until 4/5 years old and the foundation year of primary school starts at 5/6 years old). Here she is with her lovely forced smile: What was interesting about seeing a graduation at this age was that the kids really

DAY 10: New Glasses & Gotcha Days (30-Day Personal Blog Challenge)

Oh hi. Just me with my new glasses. Frizzy hair and greasy skin. Sick toddler napping on me in the carrier. Just keeping it real, peoples. I really only had to get new glasses because said toddler broke my old pair and the pair I was wearing from two prescriptions ago is now way too high

DAY 9: Sick Toddler, Storms & Birds (30-Day Personal Blog Challenge)

Today we got the storm we’ve all been waiting for. I still wouldn’t call it a “10/10” though, at least not in the CBD anyway. There was a disappointing lack of thunder or lightning, but still a good dose of windy rain. It seems the CBD has managed to evade the brunt of the storm but there are

DAY 8: Storms, Rainbow Clouds & Sibling Jealousy (30-Day Personal Blog Challenge)

The first thing Miss 4.5 said when she woke up today was: “Is it the first day of summer???” “Yes!” I replied and her face lit up with excitement, probably at the thought of all the fun things you can do in summer like swimming and going to the beach and not having to wear

DAY 7: Heatwaves, Meltdowns & Storm Forecasts (30-Day Personal Blog Challenge)

I am wilting in this prolonged heat that Melbourne has been having. The next week is forecast to be a lot cooler though and I’m looking forward to it…minus the deluge of rain and lightning that’s about to hit us over the next few days! I get around by foot and public transport, so non-stop heavy

DAY 5: Mashed Potatoes, Play Dough & Sick Kids (30-Day Personal Blog Challenge)

So last night Miss 4.5 asked for mashed potatoes.  Not my pic but you can imagine it Me: “We don’t have any potatoes.” Her: “Aw…I really want mashed potatoes.” Me: “I will get some potatoes at the supermarket tomorrow and I’ll make it for dinner tomorrow.” Today: Her: “Can we have mashed potatoes for dinner

DAY 4: Engagement, Marriage & Eye Checkups (30-Day Personal Blog Challenge)

Tonight my poor laptop dropped from the desk onto the carpet and part of the screen shattered…along with my heart 😥 It still works but I have to put sticky tape on the edge that has literally shattered into a million pieces as glass dust comes off whenever I touch it. I now have to carry it

DAY 3: Dumpster Diving (30-Day Personal Blog Challenge)

Today we went dumpster diving at our local market. What is dumpster diving? Exactly that. It gets its name from people who dive into dumpsters to rescue perfectly edible food or products that are in good condition and don’t deserve to head to the landfill to add to our pollution on earth. You may think only poor students

DAY 2: Fever, Eczema & Christmas Trees (30-Day Personal Blog Challenge)

Miss 4.5 has been running a fever today. She took some Panadol when she woke at 2am last night, but for some reason then refused it for the rest of the day, even though she usually loves taking it. We had a birthday part to attend in the middle of the day which meant Miss
