Realised how bad my eyes were when I got new glasses. I thought everything was just getting that lovely depth of field blur ... not that my eyes were getting old! 😂😩

Hello! I thought, with it being the New Year, I’d say hello and tell you guys a few things you probably didn’t know about me. Maybe you’ll pop in the comments and tell me something that I don’t know about you too! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🐦 I am petrified of birds. I don’t want them to ever touch me, but I feel like a magnet for them. They love me. The feeling will never, EVER be mutual.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
👨‍👩‍👧‍👧 I’m one of four kids. My brother is having a baby next Tuesday and I love babies, so I can’t wait to snuggle that little nugget.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
👩‍🏫 I was a nerd at school. I won the most proficient student in my class every year in primary school, and hardest working student in year 10. NERD.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🌴 My favourite place in the world is Hawaii. I’m always dreaming about how to get back there.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🍦 My favourite food is mushrooms. And I just realised there is no mushroom emoji and that is a tragedy. But I also like ice cream, so there is that.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
😳 I have a really, really dry and sarcastic sense of humour, and sometimes it’s too dry and quick for people, and then we’re left with a REALLY awkward moment.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🤮 I also have verbal diarrhoea. I saw the weirdest shit, and I can feel it leaving my mouth and I don’t know what to do. More awkward!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 👎🏻 I get anxiety. I’m always worried that people I love are going to die. I get overwhelmed often, and my goal this year is to simplify and to meditate regularly.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
💩 I have a low tolerance for bullshit.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
👉 Tell me something about you, friends!

"So, I want all the girls watching here now to know that a new day is on the horizon.” - @oprah ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I pray my girls never have to mutter the words “me too” and instead they can say to me, “Mum, I can’t believe that used to happen”. Let it end with us. I welcome the new day.

What a weekend! As we lolled about in the pool this afternoon, my 4 year old asked each of us what our favourite part of the weekend was. So, I thought I’d ask you too; what was your best bit from the past two days?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Mine was family time. Hubby had the weekend off, and we swam at the beach, played UNO, saw some friends, good times. AND I got to the bottom of my laundry pile. First time since before Christmas. Miracle! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Confession: I have been obsessed with Oprah for as long as I can remember. I recall walking into the dining room of a family friend’s house and overhearing my mum and her friend talking about two men they’d seen on the show who had fallen in love with each other, and what a {awesome} big deal that was.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’d watch it as Mum watched it, and then sometimes I’d pretend to be sick so I could stay home from school and watch it. I love that it celebrated life, broadened my small town life horizons and challenged the way I thought about things.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I remember one show there was someone who had never been to the ocean before. It blew my young mind that there were people who had never seen, heard or even felt the beach before. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The beach is my happy place. It soothes me, delights me, excites me and always makes me grateful. Thank you @oprah for teaching me that where I live is a gift, that I definitely don’t take for granted. 💕

All you need is love and the salty sea air. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And maybe a little bit of quiet too because school holidays be noisy and demanding. I swear my kids think I’m running a restaurant here. And a maid service. And an entertainment business. 😩

I asked her to come for a swim, and she got the grumps, “Mum, I was lying there and laxing, and you ruined it!”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
She got over it pretty quickly. 😂

She’s a sunflower, strong and bold and true to herself. Not as lovely as a rose, but also not as fragile.

My husband recently commented that I should potentially take up regular drinking, just a wine at night or something. 😬 I know what he was implying. I am freaking chaos. I never relax. I have to-do lists for my to-do lists and am always thinking forward to the future, or reflecting {read: stewing} on the past. I’m a treat, I tell ya!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I want to be more present. Scratch that. I WILL be more present. I want to be really here and not doing all the things. Got any tips? Besides a nightly wine to help me chill cos I don’t need any new habits. 🤪

Lacey said to me the other day, “Why do you want to know how my day is EVERY SINGLE DAY? You always ask. No other mum does that…”
.
I think she did an eye-roll and a groan simultaneously. I gave her a newsflash that most mums do ask, and I do it because I care. More groaning.
.
I know she wants to pretend that she’s annoyed at my probing ways, but she loves it. My favourite time to start conversations is in the car. There’s nothing like a captive audience. On the way to and from school, I can ask a simple question and the conversation kicks off and before I know it we’re laughing and talking about things I probably wouldn’t have unraveled with her if I didn’t have her so… captive.
.
I’m a big believer that the little moments matter when it comes to family stuff. We get to do lots of a great stuff as a family, but it’s the small things that matter most to the girls. It’s the way Shane danced in the kitchen. It’s the way I use that weird voice while reading the two minute book before bed. And it’s always the way we go around the table at dinnertime asking what the best bit of the day was for everyone. It’s always the little moments.
.
Let’s embrace these little moments, and milk them for all they’re worth. I’m doing the Bupa Little Moments challenge and encourage you to too these school holidays. All the details are in the link in my profile. {sponsored} #littlemomentsbyBupa
