Don’t you feel a huge sense of relief when Monday night rolls around? I know I do. Especially after a weekend like this.
Thursday night at 22:40, saw David and I [attempting to] calm a very hot, uncomfortable and sick baby. I’d woken to screaming and run straight into his room to find him, covered in regurgitated cheesy pasta, the room filled with the unmistakable stench of vomit. Not a great start. The rest of the weekend was spent administering suppositories (not fun when they’ve figured out exactly what it is that you’re doing), giving loads of cuddles, being extremely patient with a trying toddler and finally, seeing him almost 100% recovered on Sunday afternoon.
I escaped on Saturday morning for my darling friend, Murray’s birthday brunch at Tasha’s in Atholl and had what could easily have been two of the best cappuccinos I’ve ever had. In my life. It could also just have been that I was exhausted and was in desperate need of caffeine, in any manner or form. No, it was good.
I then fetched one of my oldest (South African) friend and her gorgeous baby girl, Ellie, to head over to a baby shower. Luca came along as he seemed to be better, but I thought he would still be chilled enough to sit on my lap while we sipped on tea and casually watched Lucy opening her gifts. Yes, no. I spent the entire afternoon chasing Luca around the (gorgeous, Westcliff) house, with an uncovered pool posing an ongoing risk, requiring me to be on my feet at all times. After the shower we spent some time with Stace and Ellie at Stacey’s folks’ house and I took some pictures of this beautiful little girl. I have missed my Sony baby so much and I loved the pics I got … what do you think?
I Skyped my sister on Saturday night. She has lost almost 20kg and is looking INCREDIBLE and I am so freakin’ proud of you! I literally don’t know how I am going to remain patient for the next 80 days until you get here!!!

Also, I LOVE the fact that Mayim Bialik is in season 4 … remember her from the TV show “Blossom“? I idolised her sometime during 1991 and 1995, and literally behaved and dressed like her for a good year or so. Huge hats, baggy dresses and all.
And on a not so fun note, I start lectures tomorrow night. Bleurgh. I am trying to see the up side of this: David and Luca get to spend quality alone time together on Tuesday and Thursday nights and at the end of all of this I am able to do more, be more and earn more. It’s 18 months of hard work, but it’s for the greater good of my family. Just. Got. To. Keep. Telling. Myself. That.
Anyway … how was your weekend?
