Hope In Uncertainty

I’ve been a bit preoccupied with my own drama lately so I haven’t been paying too much attention to current affairs. Ligament pain and a pinched nerve mean that most days, I’m curled up in bed by mid-afternoon, hoping the girls aren’t breaking down the house. The third trimester is so much fun, guys. But …

Keep Calm; It’s A Boy

In six week’s time, I’m going to be mom to a boy. At one of the early scans, my gynae said he was pretty sure it was a boy. And I hoped that at the next scan, he’d say it was actually a girl – but he didn’t. When he pointed out Peanut’s “credentials” and …

That Time We Moved House – And Then Got Burgled

This is not the “We Bought A House” post I had planned to write. That post was going to be about endless packing, and househunting headaches, my plans for a veggie garden, and why moving when pregnant is not such a brilliant idea. Maybe I will still get around to writing that post, but not …

Where Is The Love?

We’re not very good at this love thing, are we? I’m not talking about loving our family, our spouses, our children, or our friends, because we do love them, albeit imperfectly. It’s this “love your neighbour” thing we get so wrong all the time. The literal next-door neighbour we don’t know because our walls are …

Stepping Out Of Martha-Mode

I haven’t done a personal, from-the-heart post in a while. I’ve been caught up with homeschooling and lesson prep, with moving to a self-hosted domain and all that entails, with just keeping my head above water at this crazy busy time of year. How is it the middle of November already?! It’s so easy to …

21 Things You’ve Probably Been Dying To Know

I was tagged by Jozi Wahm to answer a few questions about myself. 1. Are you named after someone? Nope. Although my second name is the same as my mother’s. 2. When was the last time you cried? Umm, a few days ago? I never used to cry much. Then during my first pregnancy, my …

7 Things About Me

I was feeling rather uninspired this morning, so I turned to Pinterest for ideas. I found this 7 Things About Me. (I changed some.) 7 everyday things I couldn’t live without: Sunglasses. My eyes are so light-sensitive that I end up looking like I’m crying in outdoor photos. My cell phone. It’s got my calendar, …

{Currently} In Search Of A Place To Nap

It’s been a while since my last Currently post, and I’m struggling to write the post that I had planned for today. (A review of A Voice in the Wind, if you’re curious. It’s one of my favourite books so I want to do it justice.) Anyway. Reading: We’re still working our way through The Magic …

#30snaps | September Photo Challenge

I haven’t done one of these before, but it’s spring and a season for new things. Every day this month I will be posting a photo on Instagram following the prompts below. If you want to take part then please leave a comment so I can follow your posts, and use #30snaps so others can also find …

I Signed Up For A Fitness Challenge (Who Am I Even?)

So, I just signed up for this 21 Day Fitness challenge with Imperfect Homemaker. Yes, really. You didn’t misread that sentence. I’ve had “exercise” written on my daily schedule for weeks but unless you count chasing a semi-naked toddler around while waving clean pants at her, or wrestling that same toddler into a position that …
