Spring is here at last (insert happy dance here). I don’t know about you, but for me winter felt as though it would never end. It was a very long three months this year. I don’t know if I can fully express to you my excitement for Spring.
Over the last couple of weeks I caught a chest infection and tonsillitis, which took me out of the game of life for a couple of weeks, and believe me it has not been fun. Kicking illness to the curb is like a Spring present, after all, there’s nothing worse than a sick mum. Households don’t function well when mum is down for the count. Hubby and my mum have been very helpful, but I have hated feeling so blah. I worked out that its been over 14 years since I needed antibiotics. All I knew was that I needed to get well – AND fast.
Hubby had a conference on the Gold Coast last week. He was staying in an apartment right near the Bond university. At the last minute we decided that Amy and I would go down and enjoy the unit and the surroundings of the Gold Coast for the week. We love the Gold Coast. It was a recovery week in so many ways, but I could not have done it with out the help of mum. Super Nannie looked after Beps, Nelly and JJ. I have never been away from the Coast before without the kids so while it was a strange week in terms of having only one with me, I missed the girls and Jaden very much, but mums help gave me a break, a break I was in need of to get better.
So now that I feel better, the energy is returning and I am keen as mustard to get out and enjoy these beautiful spring days.
Spring is a magical time of the year for us. Its refreshing, but the thing I love the most about Spring is that the days become longer, there’s an excitement in the air, and when the lawns are done – outside living is an absolute MUST. Theres nothing better than dinner outside, bring back salads and bbq’s.
This time of year brings a deep desire to freshen up our home and declutter. I love being at home, and I love improving our home – pity major changes means major money, but there are little things we can do to improve our humble little place – starting with a good old declutter. There are so many ways to freshen up a home, but sometimes we need some inspiration. I’m not sure how you find inspiration to get your home in order, but I have four ways.
Spring also means health and wellbeing to me so I am thinking I will start a 100 day challenge to help me in my endeavours of health. Anyone want to join me?
I’d love to hear about your plans for Spring? Drop me a line! xo
