Relentless




For the past few days (or weeks even) I have been sprinting to keep up with life. As a result I'm sweaty and puffed but strangely not any slimmer. Whilst chatting with Rumballs during her visit on Monday she mentioned that she was exhausted right down to her bones and I'm joining her. 

It'll be a few more weeks before things slow down though. Early next week The Young Man turns three (I thought he just turned two, but it would appear that that was a year ago) and I'm yet to organise a party for him. Not because I haven't wanted to, but because I actually thought his birthday was still weeks away. He is insistent upon receiving a helicopter and who am I to let him down? Shopping must be done and a cake must be made. The Lady Baby is sick AGAIN and so am I. 

On top of this, it's The Beetle Shack's first birthday some time near the end of April.  Since birthdays are not birthdays without parties - a party must be had. I've got oodles of goodies to share around so heres hoping we all get better and that my nose stops dripping on the keyboard (imagine a broken computer in the mix).


Thanks again to those of you who voted for this. It genuinely means stacks to me.

Happy weekend friends

  10. ME TOO (well just the sick bit).

    my only solution is to sleep as much as possible. but that is not very much is it? i went to bed a baby bed time the other nigh and it was glorious. and today i slept during her sleeps but that always gives me a kind of hangover.

    get well soon

  11. I can't believe blogger just ate my comment... always when I write a long winded one too!
    Basically I said, You poor thing, you have lots going on at the moment and it is always the way to get sick when you have LOTS going on. Being a Mama is hard enough, without all the other stuff that goes with it. Try to be kind to yourself Em, if you can. I also feel as though I haven't been at my best physically for months, due to certain unfortunate events. But I am determined to find that sparkle again and get myself back on the training paddock for some regular exercise. WOW, The Beetle Shack isn't even one yet. I must have started following along just after you started, but I thought you'd be blogging for much longer. You've achieved so much in a year Em, definitely worth celebrating xo

  14. Hope you & your little lady feel better soon! It is twice as hard to get everything done with a sick household to boot!

    Best, e

    P.S. I need to edit my blog to include 'reply' messages. In the meantime, thanks for your lovely comment. My Uncle Tom painted that for us. In case of fire, it is one thing I am taking with me!
