Coming through the other side

August 2014 003

There has been blog silence for the past couple of weeks but that honestly feels like the only part of my life that HAS been silent! So many Birthdays and celebrations, parents returning from overseas trips, work to catch up on, washing to try and get dry and snot to wipe away. Oh my god – so much snot! The flu has visited our house in a big way taking all three of us down separately and then together. There is nothing like a good dose of the flu to stop you in your tracks. No matter how much I wanted to push forward I just couldn’t – I needed to slow down as much as I could and just let the germs wash over me ( that brings about a totally revolting picture doesn’t it??!).

Just before germ city hit I had signed up for this program in an attempt to lose some weight and get fitter – basically just to start moving my butt again. I have done this program before with good results – I’m not one for the whole cheer girl method of fitness (the “You go girl” type of message just doesn’t work for me) but I have found the meals in the program delicious and easy to cook (always a winner in my life) and the exercise tips do work for me too. Thanks to my winter illness I’m now behind in the plan which would usually see me throwing in the towel all together but I’m determined to push on (literally and figuratively!) and get this shit done! Too many excuses for too long me thinks…

Some other things happening around here:

– I’m planning a trip to Melbourne with Sweet Pea in October to see one of my oldest and dearest friends. So looking forward to this…

– Will be buying tickets to see one of my favourite Aussie performers

– Am feeling lucky to have tickets to see this past Prime Minister

– I’ll be increasing my work hours as from next week which means the hunt is on for a fantastic house cleaner to help out around this place. I’ve finally realised I just can’t do everything.

Now that the snot seems to be drying up some routine is slowly coming back into the household and I feel like my head is above water for the first time in a long time – I can breathe just a little easier, and that’s always a nice thing.

How about you? Has the flu dampened your life lately? Any exciting things to look forward to as Spring arrives?

    It’s such a boost to the spirits to come home to a clean house – I hope you manage to find someone good. Everyone seems to have colds at the moment or (me) be in that cough-cough-cough post-cold stage. I suspect my lungs could do with some cleaning too, or perhaps a holiday!
