Dreaming




We had a party filled weekend last weekend - it'd been a while since Dave and I had a night together away from the kids but it means i'm still exhausted and endless nights of broken sleep have done little to help.

I'm dreaming of a holiday, somewhere warm and still. 
I'm dreaming of a fat bank balance so it could actually happen. 
I'm tired.


Funnily enough posts from exactly this time last year are taunting me. We had a winter holiday.

  1. Emma I know how you feel!
    Holiday bank balance & lack of sleep.
    Praying for both of us.

  3. im sitting in my cold dining room (its 10degrees in here) thinking how my boss just told me she cant pay me this month and how stressed out my husband is and how i dont know which way to fix this mess - a holiday and some sleep are what I need but seem totally distant at this point. i hope your winter funk can be fixed by a cuppa tea - thats my hope ;-)

  4. I could so use a beach holiday right now. I am imagining me in a big floppy hat, a book and the ocean. Sigh. Maybe if I get the chance to sleep for a few hours in a row tonight I will dream about that.

  7. Rubbish sleep, yep been there for YEARS. Just realized this morning that after only 6 years I now have two children who BOTH sleep through the night until 6 am. Time for a party. I survived on a hearty dose of chocolate, tea and op shopping. Even better, perhaps a garage sale on Sat and take both the early risers with you, we did that for months to take the sting out of 4.30 starts. melx

  9. Big breaths my love. My mother always told me sleep was a luxury. Always wondered what she did stalking around the big house at night! Xxx

  11. Oh yes, I am dreaming along right beside you Em. Somewhere warm and tropical and all cocktail-ish would be perfect. I think this time of year is classic doldrums... it always has that effect on me. Keep dreaming lovely, one day it will all be a reality xoxo

  13. Hang in there, lady. Everything feels harder when you're not getting enough sleep. But one day soon you'll get some, and then this period will all of a sudden feel so far away. Kellie xx

  14. Oh no. Hope the coffee kicks in. Just an idea ... what about organising a house swap with someone? I grew up on the Gold Coast in the hinterland and nearly every winter my parents would book two weeks in an apartment on the beach. They still went to work (we were only 15 minutes from home after all) but just the change of scenery meant they felt like they were on holidays. They'd go home feeling refreshed! Well ... what about something like that? Except house swap so there's no nasty accommodation fees? Pick somewhere where your hubby can still get to work? I know it's not the same ... but sometimes changing up the routine can sort of feel like a holiday?

  15. Craving a good nights sleep too ... hope it comes your way soon.

    Totally off topic, but I LOVE the colour of your walls. So soothing.
