Where has 2 months gone?

I just realised that I last posted on May 6!! That is nearly two months ago. So much has happened in-between drinks, no I mean posts!

I had a car accident and still don’t have my baby back and I’m hoping it will be here before the end of July but not holding out much hope. I will explain all in another post and pictures as well of the damage.

I have changed jobs and starting to settle into my new job share role with a girlfriend of mine. We work a 5 day fortnight so one week I work 2 days and the following week 3 days. Still trying to get my head around all the new processes and data but seem to be settling in quite well. Again more in another post as I need to start writing again.

More issues with the little man’s father and that is doing my head in. I’m lucky I have the will power to only have 1 glass of wine, when a bottle is open, and not the entire bottle at times!!! A little teaser for you, the little man had gastro the other week and he vomited in his dad’s car on the way to his house. When I arrived to get him the next afternoon waiting on the doorstep for me was the car seat, clothes and Pooh bear all soiled from the vomit the previous night. What sort of parent and step parent doesn’t clean up vomit??? The mind boggles, well mine does anyway.

I’m starting a new exercise training program tomorrow and very excited about that as need to loose the baby weight from nearly 4 years ago. Looking forward to doing something different and for me for a change and I have never seen or heard of this training method but results are meant to good.

Another girlfriend has just told her husband that they are over so trying to be a shoulder for her and some advice of what to do and what to look out for. I don’t have all if any answers for her but can only tell her about my experiences and I was never married!

Keep your eye out for some upcoming posts as I really want to get back into this as it is solace at times for my well being and a venting outlet as well. Although I do try to not do this that often as no one wants to hear about my woes.

Feels good to be taping away at the keys again, hope you enjoy hearing from me again as well.



2012 the countdown has begun….

I have not written on my blog for such a long time and I really don’t have any reason as to why not except that life seems to have gotten in the way.  Since I last wrote I have started a new job which mind you is only 2 days a week but hey I do have a 2 year old to entertain on the other days of the week and he seems to be taking up more and more of my time these days. He is no longer my baby as tomorrow night he will be sleeping in a ‘big boy’s bed’ as he has learnt how to climb out of the cot and get back in as well as destroying his room in the process.  I know this is only going to be made easier as a bed has no rails but I’m hoping it may settle him down.  I know wishful thinking on my part but a girl can dream. P.S his will not be pink like the image below!!

He also has head lice at the moment and do you think I can stop scratching my hair!  I found out that his half siblings have had it for the past 2 weeks but my ex decided to not inform me or even treat our son so I have had the lovely task of running/pulling the comb through his hair.  Not a nice job for any parent.  As you can see my ex and I are still having issues and there are so many more I could mention but figure I won’t bore you.

New jobs are great as you get to meet new people and have new experiences that you may not have had if you didn’t have the change.  I love learning new computer systems and seem to be adept at picking them up on the first day – which impresses the new manager no end!  I have to drive to this one which is a nice change and I get to listen to the radio in the car and have the munchkin in the back seat talking away to me as well.  I love the radio in the morning but prefer an iPod at night, not that my car has this capability.  Munchkin settled in well to his new Family Day Care last week, even pushing me out the door saying “work” and had a 2.5 hour sleep in the middle of the day – I was very pleased with that as thought he might rebel and not sleep.

I have decided that 2012 has to be better than the last couple so all I have to say is “look out Melbourne!”  I will also try and blog on a more consistent basis so I get a few followers as well.


Turning that corner I mentioned

I have been meaning to write this post for a week or more and have I found the time? Obviously not! Well today I decided was the day and nothing was going to get in my way. Finally the corner is turning for me and the reason is the following:
I have been successful in getting a new job for 2012; I have been out of work since 24 November when they didn’t renew my contract. I will be working at MLC girls school in their Alumni department which should be loads of fun and the best thing is it is 2 days a week and nearly the same pay I was on working 3 days a week this year! I also don’t start until 15 Jan so I get to spend loads of quality time with my son which I feel I have not done since he was a baby. We have been running, visiting new parks, playing in the driveway, catching trains and seeing Santa!

The other reason the corner is turning is that I have hopefully gotten the said son into Family Day Care in the Balwyn area for next year and cheaper than day care here in Beaumaris. They say good things occur in three so I wonder what the next thing will be???

I went on another blind date last week and he is a friend of one of the mother’s group friend. Seems really nice and we have spoken a few times on the phone so will wait and see what happens there. I also really want a new car so maybe that could be the third thing…..

I hope everyone else out there is having their corner turned as well like I have in the last couple of weeks. Life is certainly looking brighter for me which is great and instead of half empty I am finally becoming a half full kinda gal.
