In This Moment - On My Mind: An Update

As I type this I can hear my baby girl whimpering from her cot. She started coughing yesterday, a deep chesty cough but she seems to be in good enough spirits. I am tired, two almost sleepless nights has already caught up with me and I am reminded of how good I have it with a baby who usually sleeps through the night.

I was just internally debating over what to have for dinner tonight, I have two slow cooker meals ready to go but it just hit 3pm and I realise I have already left it too late. Whoops. Toasties is it. That was until I received a phone call from the inlaws: Dinner at theirs tonight! Yuss. Good timing of the phone call NannyMoo.

I won a little wooden table and chair set for Milla on trade me this weekend, I am thrilled with my purchase and can't wait to pick it up. I'm putting a "sand and paint" on the ever-growing-hardly-ceasing to do list and then it will be adorable! Also, while browsing paint colours online this weekend I found my paint-personality: Spring! Definitely my most favourite season. I love these colours and thinking a blog make over is in order. I'm getting sick of this dull pink in my header.

The #LOVEBOMB is almost over: I'm just waiting on a few more things to arrive in the post then I will be taking photos, packaging it all up and having it shipped off. I can't wait! Its very thrilling, but also very tiring. It will be nice when this is all done.

I am attributing all of this blue-y-ness to a lack of sleep and this horrid winter, by far my most hated thing in this world. Winter. Grr.

I'm going to put some real pants on, go check the mail, hang some clothes up and then crash on top of our bed in a deep slumber until the husband gets home.


  1. I hope you get some good sleep soon! I do love that I'm not the only one who gets to 3pm with dinner being a fail- thankfully frozen meals are a winner! Excited to see LoveBomb pics!

  2. Excellent timing, NannyMoo! Having just bought a slow cooker, I am struggling to get into the habit of preparing in the morning and then thinking about when I need to turn the thing on - which is why I am never without dried pasta, tinned tomatoes, tomato paste and some random vegetables! Not that there's anything wrong with toasties :)
    Hopefully Milla starts feeling and sleeping better soon so her mama can have some much-needed rest too xx

    1. My rule of thumb is anywhere before 11am is pretty good if you want it for dinner. Then on low for the whole day everything is tender and awesome. Melts in your mouth.

      Thank you lovely! :) x

  3. Haha I get to 6 without figuring out dinner most nights ugh. I hope Milla gets better and you can get some decent sleep!

    1. Heh. Well I pretty much need dinner ready by 4.30 - 5pm most nights for milla, so my schedule runs a little earlier than yours ;)


  4. Sleep deprivation is the pits
    Take care of yourself

  5. Take it easy on the real pants thing - I went to get the mail in my pyjama's the other day - realising when I got to the letter box that it was school drop-off time and there were people everywhere! (We live directly opposite a primary school.) Felt a bit silly.


Wowee! Thanks for leaving a comment :)
