10th January 2016

Today, my darling Ralph, you insisted on waking me super early in the morning by whispering “wake up now mummy” continuously in my face.  I love that you are so persistent and don’t give up even if you do have to drag me out of bed by my ankles…..

We woke up to an unusual grey summers day here in Perth but it was a nice break to take a morning walk along the beach without melting at 7:30 in the morning, which turns out is also the same time and place that all of Perth’s lycra wearing fitness addicts do their daily exercise.

my mama mantra

its fair to say i have had zilch time for myself during March and i dread to think, but probably for the rest of April too. i struggle at the best of times to focus on me, but in-between Ralph, pre-service teacher assignments, lectures, school visits, readings (there is lots and lots and lots of readings to be done!) and hosting a bloody suspected parasite in my intestine I’ve really struggled to keep my equilibrium/sanity in check, thus Big D has officially renamed me ‘cranky pants.’
