Update on the last week!

For the past 2 years I have been apart of a parenting forum. I found that I have spent way too many hours and too much energy on there and decided last week to leave. I have been so unhappy for so long because I spent a lot of time on there each day. So I have made a clean break and am feeling a lot happier for it!

The past couple of days have been flat out with me working and just generally being unorganised! I had Mum come up for a few days and cooked a heap of meals to freeze etc for me and she did a general tidy up of the house which was great. I just need to maintain that though. Oscar will start daycare Monday week and will go for 2 full days a week. I will miss him dearly but I really think that he needs the socialisation and I need a break. He really is such a gorgeous and easy little guy to take care of but since moving so far away I have no family or close friends that I can ask to have him for a few hours some days. So I am currently planning my days where I don't have Oscar so I can make sure that everything I need to have done is done and I can spend the rest of my time with my gorgeous little man when he is home.

I am hoping to do all my meal planning for the week on a Sunday night, have my shopping list written out and then do my food shopping as soon as I have dropped Oscar off at daycare. I have a fantastic diary for 2009 which is great for planning my days for personal things as well as business things! So that will be a great tool for me!

I was 15 weeks last Wednesday and have started feeling some little kicks which is very exciting! Shane is hanging to feel our tiny little bubba kick him and is a little impatient with waiting! I am very excited because Shane is working pretty much 6.30am to 9pm every day but this Monday we have closed the shop for Australia Day!! Yay! We get to spend the whole day together... so we might head down the river for a swim and go out for lunch!

Anyway... enough rambling from me! Hope you have a great long weekend and
