You should be 40

I really wanted to commemorate Frith’s 40th on Wednesday. If he were still here, the party would have been epic, probably lasting a full weekend. The thing is, I have no idea where we would have even been living – which state, which city or country town? So it’s hard to imagine what our lives…

Remember why you do this

Man I’ve been hard on myself lately about keeping this blog up to date and writing meaningful posts that people can really connect with. My head and heart just aren’t in it at the moment. I get so much lovely feedback from you all that you love my blog and love reading my words and…

A time to share

I’m sitting at my shiny new dining room table (well fb marketplace new, and new to me) with a hot cross bun and a coffee, enjoying the cool change that has FINALLY come, listening to Chance scraping through Lego, kindly directing Darby to find certain pieces for their latest creation, and listening to Quinn and…

Hope

I hope I can get some stuff done today. I hope that this feeling of restlessness inside of me is appeased by something. It’s another rainy day here in Brisbane. I’m at home with Julius and we have no plans to go anywhere. I have a dozen things I could be doing, a handful of…

I am here…

I love that song by P!nk. It’s kind of my jam. I turn it right up if I’m at home on my own sometimes. It’s also a really good rate of beats per minute for doing squats to. That’s my PSA for today. You’re welcome. May we pretend that it hasn’t been nearly three weeks…

It’s been an interesting start to the school year, with tonsilitis, a subsequent Covid test (-ve of course), homework…

First Day

It took about 20 photos, but here’s a pretty good one of the four of them!! Julius officially in kindy, Quinn grade 3, Chance grade 5, Darby grade 1. How the heck did that happen? I tell you what, it would be nice if they all liked the same things for lunch!! The only thing…

That’s a wrap

In true Domagala family style, my birthday lasted a whole week. Woo! I had a couple more cards arrive in the mail during the week, some belated, yet still very much appreciated birthday wishes, and today I received what I can assume to be my final gifts. The flowers are from my good friend and…

Hello there, 2021

Happy New Year, one and all. I spent the last evening of 2020 with friends who are practically family, only having myself to make snacks and get drinks for. The kids had a bumper afternoon and sleepover with Gran and Grumpy, so it was a win for all. On my drive home just after 8pm,…
