HALF-WAY!!! Wow, it’s funny how it’s become such a big part of my evening routine – to reflect on the day and pick out my photo.

Day 50

After more vomiting, a Drs trip (where Little Man ran about and giggled hysterically throughout his physical exam) and lots of leg clinging, I decided to keep up with our afternoon walk but avoid the park to stop the bug spreading to other kidlets. I had a few quick chats with friends and LM waved at his buddies and even managed to collect a pine cone so it was something we both had needed.

Day 51

It's very rare Little Man falls asleep on me these days but today he did. I've caught his bug and decided I needed rest otherwise I would have kept him for longer than the thirty minutes that I did. As it turns out we both ended up napping for a further 3 hours in our own beds!!

Day 52

Seeing Little Man's face light up when he saw me get in his Tipi to play. We had the best half hour in there!

Day 53

I wanted to take a picture of the beer can chicken we had for tea, but I ate it too quickly. Instead here is a nest in the middle of the pond we spotted on our lovely morning walk.

Day 56

The moment I got back to the car after finishing my exam.

In a weird way I’m kind of missing the pressure of study, I’m still in that adrenaline filled mood and haven’t come down yet. Maybe it’s because I’m aware I’ve lost a year only doing one course (which I know on a logical level couldn’t be helped – there is no way I could have sat the exam in June after losing Yogi) and have heaps more to go before being able to complete the qualification. I’m now contemplating whether to enroll in the summer semester (November – January). Half of me is saying do it, just crack on with it but the other half of me is absolutely exhausted.

Like with most of my decision making I’ll probably sleep on it for a while before deciding the night before and starting in a mad panic. Oh how I used to be so organised and decisive. Or at least, I think I was…

Until next time,

Katie

  1. Glad you have some time to make up your mind. If you’re tired right now, it might be better to hold off for a bit. Hope you’re feeling better hon!

    1. Thanks! Yeah, I think you could be right. I underestimated how hard studying would be with a toddler around let alone everything that’s happened this year. I’ll have to sleep on it some more!
