Wow! What a busy week we have had and I am completely exhausted!
Australia Day was fantastic! Shane had the WHOLE day off which was heaven! We headed down to the river for a picnic breakfast and went for a bit of a drive then came home and watched the cricket for the afternoon. For dinner we went to Oscar W's which is a gorgeous restaurant/bar which is right on the river! We went for a walk along the Port and Oscar played with the ducks. So all in all it was a great day!!
In general we have been rushing around as usual doing things for the shop etc which seems to take up a fair bit of my time now. Fingers crossed it should settle down soon as we have put Oscar into daycare 2 days per week! He started yesterday and I was a mess! I cried my eyes out and felt like such a bad Mummy for leaving him with someone. I just have to keep reminding myself that it is for the best and that I need the time to get things done etc. With him home I find it impossible. Oscar had an absolute ball and didn't shed 1 tear! I was amazed at how great I felt yesterday after having Oscar at daycare from 9am -3.30pm. I got the food shopping done without any fights and things being thrown out the trolley. I had dinner organised and cooked by 12pm, I had the house cleaned by 2pm and it was absolute bliss! Thursday when he goes again will be my catch up day for paperwork etc and then I should all be up to date! I love that I now have some structure to my week and have goals and jobs set for particular days. It will be up so much more time for me rather than me battling me way through the day trying to get things done here and there!
Tomorrow I am 17 weeks which is almost hard to believe! It seems to have flown and I am starting to get a VERY round tummy! So in the nest few weeks I will have my next US which is exciting and tomorrow I will post a photo of my rounded belly!
I should get a move on and tidy up the lunch dishes before I let the housework get behind again!
