hello new routine So, Steve got the job he interviewed for last week. And he starts today. It's still transport, but in the retail industry, so we don't really know much about the hours, except that he starts at 9am. Which is almost 4 hours later than any other job he's ever had. He'll actually see the kids off to school, and have plenty of time to eat breakfast!
hello bike riding Steve has recently started seeing a dietician and physiotherapist, as part of a requirement for taking some new blood pressure medications. He's determined to make some changes, and is all gung-ho about following the information exactly. I, on the other hand, have always believed in moderation in all things, and full-fat-everything. But while we were talking about the things the physiotherapist has him doing, we decided that we should pull out our bikes, and both of us start riding them again. So once he's done his thirty minutes walking, he rides two laps around the block. And once I've walked Daisy in the morning, I ride one lap. It takes less than a minute, but I think it's a better workout than walking!
hello blog class It's no secret that I'm a bit of an un-finisher. And that if someone I respect is selling, I'm going to buy. But money has been tight, so it's been awhile since I've done any classes. I've been following Kirsten from Sweet Tea LLC for over a year now, after spotting her graphics on pinterest, and liking what I read. Her facebook group is active, she has a podcast, and her free webinars are amazing value (and I can participate live, because 8pm her time translates to 9am my time!) So when she announced her new class #FinishBigStartStrong a couple of weeks ago, I knew I needed to do it. After a bit of back and forth with Steve, we figured out how to make it work with our even-tighter budget, and I signed up. Class starts some time today (figuring out time zones is really confusing) and I'm almost certain I'll write some more about it over the coming weeks and months.
hello Christmas Only 55 sleeps! All my plans for a Christmas series went out the window when our lives were turned upside with Steve losing his job, but I need to get back on track and get myself organised.
hello camping We finally got our camper trailer back ten days ago, after being quoted four weeks back in August to do the new canvas replacement. We've got proper Australian-weather-proof canvas on our English-design camper, and once we know how Steve's roster will work, we're planning a weekend away!
hello blog link up You might have noticed that earlier this year, Toni and I hosted a weekly blog link up. It sort of fizzled when we both had stuff going on in our lives, but we're launching again this week. This Parenting Life is moving to Friday mornings (6am AEST) and will stay open until Sunday nights. You're welcome to link up any recipes, parenting tips, family activities or life stories.
hello Monday, a new start every week.
