Blogging for blogtoberfest

Gosh I hope that I can actually commit to this!

I'm joining a blogtoberfest and commiting to blogging every day in October. And this poor old neglected blog could surely do with a boost from me!

So each day I'm going to try to post about something completely different.

At the park enjoying the sunshine (although cold!)
This last week has been an interesting one for me. My husband recently started a new job and will have to travel a little. Not too much (I hope!) but he has just spent a week in Brisbane to learn all he can from the operation there. This is the longest we have ever been apart since having kids and with that means the first time I've taking care of my two treasures (ahem) on my own. 

I'll quietly say that I was freaking out before he left but actually the week hasn't been too bad. Lots and lots of planning (thankfully I'm a control freak) and we made it through. Thanks to slow cookers, getting clothes ready and packing daycare bags the night before, and laying out pjamas in the morning ready to put on that night and yep we made it through. Just. 

All went smoothly, except for the nights before I went to sleep. It was lonely. Just me. Noone to discuss my day. Noone to laugh about something funny on tv. Sure we talked on the phone and had messages but it just wasn't the same as having him here.

So I survived. I know so many other mums out there do this all the time but this is new for me. Huge adjustment for me and our little family. 

Really looking forward to some quality family time over the next week or so!!

Spring has sprung

Spring is here, although you wouldn't really know it here in Melbourne. I guess it is getting warmer but it still was only 15 degrees yesterday. 

I have so many plans when the weather gets warmer. Hubby Owl and I were talking this morning about changing some of our garden around and adding some grass. At the moment it is just all vegetable garden (and we only have a tiny space) but I know the kids would love to roll around in the grass. It would only be small but worth it.

I would love to do a big spring clean too. Perhaps earn some money through a garage sale. Goodness know we have accumulated a lot of things over the years so it would be good to see some of it go. 

Oh and of course, I would love to create some lovely spring and summer things for my owlets. Dresses, skirts and shorts are in order me thinks.

Well I've inspired myself - so what are you planning?
