All For The Love of January

So much happens in January. We have New Years, My nieces birthday ( I promise I haven’t forgotten), my birthday, our anniversary, Australia Day and then my Dad’s birthday. All after the summer holidays and Christmas. My poor Dad on the tale end of the busiest month of my year.

I’ve spent the last two weeks training, so have been working full time and Matisse has been in child care getting progressively grumpier as the days have gone on. We packed a bunch in to the first weekend: Car shopping, visitors, Latitude, Zoo, dinners you name it, we did it. Then I finished the fortnight off with an intensive writing course. I’m wiped and we’re toilet training.

People work full time and have kids all the time. People have multiple children and work full time. I bow down to them. We all have our struggles individually if we work or not but I got just a taste of the life and I and forever grateful that it’s not a permanent gig. Well the parenting is of course 🙂

So life aside I am proud of myself, I have been relatively good with limiting my refined sugar intake. A few slips here and there but I have not once gone to the shop and bought chocolate. That is massive for me and a big habit to break. I haven’t been as good with the food, I let tiredness get in the way but I have stopped putting on weight which I have been doing steadily over the last few months.

So FAB Feb here we come. Writing is the feature for me this month plus I desperately need to get to the gym. I hope you are all having an amazing Monday.

Hi! I'm Kate, I hail from Melbourne with my three loves, Willow, Matisse and my husband Dan. I enjoy staying active, attempting to be crafty, discovering new recipes and fun things to do with my daughters. I have found that becoming a mum has tapped in to this raw positive energy that I never knew I had. In this weird new world I live in I've found that I need to look after myself more to keep myself healthy and be a positive role model for the littler ones. Keeping this in mind has kept me on track to create the best me and be a better Mum. Well it's a work in progress but we all need to aspire to something right? I am also a writer, chugging away at that elusive novel but now is the time people. I am writing and you get to hear all about it, just joking, I won't bore you with that. If you want to know where I'm at please feel free to ask it might give me a boot to get me going in my less motivated of moments. I'm passionate about women's rights, equality, children's rights and mental health. I want to say social justice as a whole but it is so broad. I believe we all have the right to be the best that we can. I look forward to getting to know you all and sharing my crazy life.
