Simple Woman's Daybook

Apologies for the break in posting, my Mother-in-Law came from Singapore for a visit and consequently I haven't touched the computer for emails let alone blogging!  My google reader account had over 400 unread; now 200 - I think I need to revise my subscription policy:)

Outside my is pitch black.

I am thinking...about what still needs to be done before we lose the internet in a weeks time and our removal in two weeks.
I am thankful...for having my old energy levels back.  Morning sickness I am glad to be rid of you.

In the kitchen...I am grateful for a week of not cooking.  DH wanted to cook fancy meals for his Mum last week and I managed to freeze enough leftovers for Ginger and I to eat this week while DH is out field.
I am wearing...ballet tights, leotard, gym shorts and a t-shirt.  I just had my last ballet lesson until after this baby arrives.

I am creating...well nothing.  I am cleaning out a lot though in preparation for our move and that should create a more harmonious experience unpacking in Darwin.
I am have my best friend (aka Ginger's god-mother) up for the last time this weekend.  Brisbane and Toowoomba are much closer than Brisbane and Darwin

I am wondering...what moving tasks I have totally forgotten about and how to get rid of a non-functioning dishwasher.

I am reading...Human Traces by Sebastian Faulks, a novel about the advent of psychiatry.

I am hoping...we get everything done before the removalists come.
I am looking forward 18 week scan the week after next (the day we move out - so DH can't accompany me) and our upcoming trip to Singapore for Christmas.

I am hearing...silence, finally.  It only took Ginger an hour to fall asleep tonight!

Around the house...I have so many piles of stuff, some for charity shops, some for the dump and some that need to buy a storage crate for.

I am much we truly need to make us happy.

One of my favourite things...the stone fruit is in season - apricots, peaches, nectarines and cherries are all calling my name from the fridge

A few plans for the rest of the week...continue my clean out (fabric stash is next) and get the house cleaned ready for the weekend.


  1. Hooray! I missed the pregnancy news! I'm happy for you!
    I'll be holding you in my prayers as you move and resettle.
    I have been to Singapore! I found it lovely!
    Take care, little mama! I'm sure Ginger is going to love the adventure!

  2. Best wishes as you prepare to move. It's always a lot of work (let alone with a toddler and one in utero), but so satisfying to inventory and weed belongings.

    Singapore sounds like a fun choice for Christmas!
