Managed a sleep in. Slow morning, breakfast and the Sunday Footy Show. Miss A spent time playing in the bedroom. I stripped our bed and tried to find the cat smell 🙁 Time for some pumpkin soup for lunch. The girls helped dad mow the front lawn before it bucketed down. Visited Grandma & Grandad.

Back home again and Miss K and I folded her washing and put it away before cooking mini lamb roasts for tea. Fluffy hot chocolates for all then showers. Bedtime for Miss A & she was out like a light in 15 minutes. The Eurovision finals once Miss K headed to bed. Got stuck into some school baking and a sneaky Choc Raspberry Brownie. Made our bed then headed off to sleep.

Thanks for reading along this week. I’ll hopefully get a start on my album soon, unlike last year which is still to be done :/

A slight sleep in. Bagged up some sheets and old doonas to donate to a family who lost everything in a house fire recently. Miss A in her new beanie and gloves from Grandma. 11:11.
Walking back to the car after soccer. They played LU  (who are second on the ladder) and lost but played well and kept LU to 4 goals. Footy time! Someone couldn’t stay awake and cuddled in for a nap. Sunset. More footy – Hawks beat Freo by 51 points. It’s really cold.

Snuggled up in a blanket on the way back to the car. KFC for tea on the way home. All dressed up in her PJs plus new beanie & gloves from Grandma. Eurovision semi final 2. Lucky you are cute missy because 3am is not mum’s favourite time to be awake.

Someone woke and wanted a cuddle from mum Back to sleep then awake after sleeping through our alarm (oops). Breakfast, check emails, make Miss K school lunch and help her get dressed. Check Instragram and they’ve changed the logo and layout. Delivery for J, cards for D&D. Someone had to wear a dress, just like her sister. I spent the morning cleaning the dining room while J worked. Lunch – savoury toast. Miss A decided to play a bit of kitchen soccer with the beach ball.

Then have a rest on the polar bear to watch some more Hey Dougee. Helping mum clean then hanging out waiting for Miss K to get home from school on the bus. Today’s weather. Tonight’s dinner – Beetroot meatballs with Aussie Roast veggies. Doing a survey for Neilson, it took HOURS, in between getting kids showered and to bed and washing up the dishes from dinner. Someone woke up just after midnight then crawled into bed at 12:45.

Get up and leave 2 sleepy heads in one bed and then get Miss K out of bed and ready for school.  A cheese sandwich and some cereal for breakfast then watch a little Toybox on the iPad. Today’s lunch for Miss K – cab loaf ham & mayo sandwich, wagon wheel, LCM and tiny teddies. Miss A got into Miss K’s lipgloss, then after a shower played with a nursery rhyme app. J out working so Miss A & decided to clean up the lounge room. Found one of Miss K’s drawings. Miss A decided to watch some ABC 4 Kids. Today’s weather.

Floor cuddles. More Hey Duggee. The difference between me & J with bacon – rind off for me, rind on for J. Lunch – mini egg & bacon pies for Miss A, BLT for me, bacon & eggs for J. No soccer because of the forecasted weather. Miss A had a nap so I got to do some uni work and have a sneaky red skin.

IMG_4576

And this is why soccer was cancelled, lots of rain! and wind. A bit of blogging while the girls watch the iPad on the cot. Tea tonight – tacos or taco salad. I made bread (& let it prove for nearly 4 hours!!!). One of Miss K’s soccer friends dropped round an invite to his party. Lots of washing inside due to the crappy weather. Miss A decided a dress up skirt & Hey Duggee were a better option than sleep.

School reader time. Miss A finally crashed about 10! Bread finally cooked. Off to bed with Tony Delroy, our weeknightly bedtime listening, on ABC radio. My bedtime companion, til J comes to bed, Mystra. Good night world.

It’s a school day so awake at 7. Miss A slept a full night which is a big win. Miss K made the two girls jam on toast for breakfast. I love how she (occasionally) loves to take the big sister role and make breakfast for them both.
Lunchbox for today – Ham & mayo sandwich, salt & vinegar chips, yoghurt rice cakes, donut ball and a choc chip biscuit.
Hot drink for Mum & Dad then time for the school drop off.
Last week’s stats from my Apple Watch. Have managed my move & stand goals every day so far this month.
Weather for today is mild but overcast. Time for a shower for the rest of us then Uni catch up for me.

Lunchtime – butterfly with jam for Miss A, toasted ham & cheese for us. Your Inspiration at Home delivery, not the one I want but one for a customer. Quick visit from Mum. Spotlight vouchers in the mail.

Week in the Life 2015 {Sunday}

Week in the Life is a week-long documentation project from the amazing scrapbooker/memory keeper Ali Edwards. Last year was the first time I did a full week and you can see what I posted by clicking the WitL tag. This week I’ll be sharing a selection of photos and words from the day before.

And today bring to a close another Week in the Life. Having a rotten head cold has definitely affected the number of photos I took this year but I’m glad I stuck with it and have a record of it.

We had a pretty slow morning as we all woke feeling like crap. Went out to Mum & Dad’s for lunch as my brother had come up for a visit. Came home and cleaned up as hubby’s D&D group were coming round. Had tea. Got the girls to bed. Went to bed early as I couldn’t be bothered listening to hubby & his mates. And I was tired.

Looking forward to sitting down and actually scrapping our stories now. I plan on sharing them once this year’s pages are done Smile
