Well what do we have here...

Potential news peeps (no I am not pregnant, relax)...I may have a casual job. I don't know for certain yet and it would be on a trial basis to begin with. It is only a couple of shifts a week (which is really all I'm looking for and it works in with the kids), it's in retail which I wouldn't normally look at but it is at one of my favourite shops and I love all their stuff so I would love to work there. 

Really it is just to get me out of the house and back in the 'real world' with other adults and the general public. I wouldn't just be mum anymore if you know what I mean. I am not pinning my hopes on it and if I don't get it and then it wasn't meant to be. Thankfully I am not desperate and if it doesn't happen now I know it will happen eventually. 

I will keep you posted, fingers crossed for me.

That is all for now, as you were ;)

Time flies when you're having fun...or you have kids & then it really flies!

Whoops, as usual here I am again apologising for my absence.

I don't think there's too many of you to let down though so I don't feel too guilty about it, ha. But for those of you that have missed me, I am sorry.

Life has been busy, kids have been a handful. There are days when I question my sanity, why did I decide to become a mother again. We all have those days now and again, it's just that the mothering community tend not to say it out loud and certainly not to others.

I love my kids, they are my world...they just like to send me bat sh*t crazy on a semi-regular basis which makes me reminisce about life before kids. Ahhh, when I could be selfish and irresponsible and spend my disposable income on myself. We made the choice to have kids though, and I was fully aware that life would become about them. I don't regret my decision at all. I think having children is the most rewarding thing I have ever done and the love I feel for them is far greater than anything else.

I sound a bit contradictory I suppose, but I'm just being honest. It is probably the hardest job I have ever had. Raising children is not a walk in the park, they are bloody hard work. But when you teach them something and they get it, gosh you are proud. When they use their manners and say something really sweet to you, you can't help but think...I made that (with the help of hubby of course). Although he'll be the first to tell you that I blame him for all their less sweet attributes, I totally do. ha

I'm not really sure how this post turned in to a bit of a rant, oh hang on a I know why I am such a cranky b*tch, it's that time of the month (which came a week early and didn't help my dark mood).

I feel like I should try and turn it around and end with something nice, that makes me happy.

I was having cuddles with my son the other day and he turned to me and said 'you smell nice' and that simple compliment made my heart sing.

In closing, they are worth it.

Have a good one.

Manic May

Ok maybe not so much manic as busy...lots on this month. 

Let's not forget the all important Mother's Day (next Sunday for those that need reminding). Sh*t that just reminded me that I haven't booked the cafe for breakfast, must do that tomorrow. 

Tomorrow night we have our friends engagement party, I have no idea what to get them as they already live together so have all the usual house stuff. I might have to peruse pinterest for some inspiration. 

Not next weekend but the following hubby and I are both out, I had already locked him in so I could have a girls night and then he got invited to a bucks party on the same night. Nana to the rescue, the kids will be having their first sleep over there. I hope they are good for her! 

I am also super excited about the 24th of May, there is a crafty event in Brisbane run by Unleash Creative that I will be attending. I cannot wait, it is going to be awesome. If you want to learn more about it check out Unleash Creative

That's all the big things really, but that is more than usual for us.

Oh and guess what I'll never guess so I'll just tell you. I deleted the facebook app off my phone, I know that's not really that big a deal but for a social media addict like myself it was a big step. I still pop on briefly once or twice a day on the laptop but I try not to spend too long on there and have cut back on how much time I spend on there. I used the app a lot because it would flash up with notifications all the time so I was constantly checking it throughout the day. Mind you, my phone is still glued to me because I am obsessed with Instagram. Ahh well, baby steps.

I hope everyone is having a great weekend.
