In this moment

reading... catching fire. Watched the movies and now I'm into the books. So glad to finally be reading something other than parenting books.

excited about... my childhood friend visiting from Singapore. Lots of catching up to do!

ordering... a waist leash. Am going to try walking Frankie and baby together for a change. I've been told waist leash is the way to go as it will keep my hands free to push the pram.

planning... a short farm stay or a weekend by the beach. I need a quick escape.

watching... Modern Family season 3 on DVD. Still my favourite family on TV.

dreaming about... a clean house and more storage space.

listening to... Smooth FM. And being happily oblivious to what the latest trends in pop music are.

feeling... rested for a change. Bub slept in for 3 hours today!

wanting... to get my core strength back. I found a pilates studio with a creche so I'm back at pilates. Feels. So. Good.

grateful for... my lovely mother in law who minds Alexander once a week so I can have a break from mummy duties for a few hours!

loving... warm winter woolies and a crackling fireplace in the evenings.

Nice sharing.

I also looking around for aerobic or zumba classes but unfortunately all in the evenings. I prefer mornings.

Great that you get the time to appreciate the important things in life: planning holidays, reading, relaxing and most of all, being grateful. Enjoy the happy times!

So many things to feel grateful for - very sweet. Being a Mom is hard work - glad you get an afternoon to yourself every week. So important to keep things in balance. A weekend away sounds wonderful. xo Karen

Hahah! That's awesome that you're getting a leasing for your son! It's good to be hands free when I'm sure you've been super super hands on the last many months! I'm holding a giveaway of some asian beauty goodies! Do join if you want! ^^
