Why do weekends fly on by and the rest of the week drags??

Weekend round up

Goodbye long weekend, hello four day week. We are all in for a treat this month with public holidays in abundance. For me public holidays mean more family time and an extra pair of hands to wrangle the toddler.

Later nap time = later nights= More night-life

Friday night saw us hit up Welcome To Thornbury. The first permanent food truck venue to land in Melbourne. It hosts between four to six food trucks daily and I’ve got to say it was a bit of fun to hang out in our old hood. With a rotating roster of trucks coming through it was the Mr Burger owners that started it up last year. Plenty of drinking/eating space available in this converted car yard.




Saturday my loving family departed to give me some writing time. Two hours of undisturbed writing bliss, I’ll take the time when it is given and  made some great progress. For some reason I can’t seem to concentrate when the little one is around.


Love has kept me busy this weekend, not the making variety the watching. No I don’t like to watch love making. Oh wow! this is going to a bad place. The Show Love,  Netflix got me again rather creator Judd Apatow. I watched the first few episodes and felt nonplussed but the complexity of the characters dragged me in and I have successfully downed season one. Not all in one weekend mind you.

I saw 430am Sunday morning, thanks Matisse, you will not break me. I gave the other adult in the house a sleep in. Go me, he regretted waking up when I said we were going to Moomba. The guy hates crowds, okay the world hates crowds but it was going to be the best day ever.


Two thirds of the way in Matisse is yelling I love Moomba, is that Moomba? she was pointing to a church. Moomba, Moomba Moomba. The kid was excited over something she had never heard of or seen but she was feeding off me, I love a celebration.

It wasn’t until we were venturing down Flinders St and I was giving Dan shit for taking us the wrong way that the excitement reached fever pitch. He told me there would be a Teacup ride. Get out, Matisse was going on her first ride and I was going too. Life was becoming even more amazing than when we saw the graffiti art along Hosier Lane.

The city side of Moomba was more like an amazing travelling carnival. Everything was big and someone’s little mind was being blown. The rides were ‘too big’ and would therefore be ‘scary’. I was feeling the same way. Flip over to the other side of the river and it was kiddie paradise. There was my Teacup ride, we had an amazing time. The Birdman Rally,  let’s just say the costumes were cool and raising money for charity is awesome.

I’m still regretting not going on one of the scary rides but I’m not sure the  littlest of the family would cope with Mum hanging upside in the air and being flipped around. Maybe I’m using her as an easy out. Hey! I’ve had my days with scary rides.


Labour Day means the weekend is coming to an end

Why do weekends fly by and the rest of the week drags? You get to do cool stuff on the weekend, thats why and you have complete control over what cool stuff you get to do. Oh! and there are no emails.

Labour Day for us was the day we decided to get a grown up couch.

We have a couch history. It was our first relationship financial investment. We threw a couch party in celebration, as you do, we even supplied a blow up pool in the middle of winter. it was amazing, I was even having too much fun to notice the smoke burn one of my guests put in my new couch. Oh life!

Our current couch was inspired by New York City. It looks great but it’s not for sitting too much. My theory was we were going to be fabulous and live our child free life out and about that we wouldn’t need a couch to actually sit on. This was my minimalist phase. Then I got pregnant. Man that couch has been the most uncomfortable thing ever, my pregnant body hated it.

Now we have invested in the most comfortable couch ever and I can’t wait to actually sit on it, a lot.

I hope you have had an amazing weekend

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.
