Is that not the most angelic little face you’ve ever seen? I just can’t.
This picture was taken when he was sick a couple weeks ago. I’d taken the day off and was working from home with him when he said, “Mom, can we go snuggle in your bed?” I was like do you know you’re speaking my love language right now? And 5 minutes later this precious was snoring next to me. I know in those situations you’re supposed to be super worried (because although Knox sleeps like a trooper – sometimes until 9 in the morning, he does not ever sleep in the day time), but I soaked up those cuddles like a sponge soaking up spilled coffee and twisting it over my mouth to get the last bits of it into my system.
But not actually cos that’s just freaking gross.
My little photographer! I love seeing what they decide to capture when they have a chance to take pics. I also love that she’s barefoot but freezing, so wearing my jersey as a dress. It all kind of just works. My awesome family and friends have gifted me with a photography course fpr my birthday and I’m SO excited to learn how to really take great pictures. This was our brief stint through Gaansbaai and then a little place called Dassiesfontein that’s covered in solar panels and has an incredible amount of treasures stored under their roof.
Doing: After planning two parties (Transformers and Boho) and surviving 5 weeks without my in laws I’m trying as much as possible to do nothing. Although, when do we ever get that right? The thing that I am doing that I’m most excited about doing is a little photography course that I was gifted for my birthday. For years I’ve been using my camera on the “auto” setting and I’m so excited to learn how to take the pictures that I see in my head! I was also spoiled with a couple of Sorbet vouchers so I can’t wait to go and get my nails done. Ever since that mani that I had for our Italy trip I have been wanting another one!
Planning: Now all that I have left on my planning agenda is a little movie night social for our church and then a school fundraiser in November. But with the parties over I’m glad I can finally actually give them both some real attention!
Guys, I know someone who has written an actual real life book! It’s so awesome. Isn’t there just something about a book – such an accomplishment all held within those pages. It was quite surreal reading her words and knowing her a bit through social media I could almost picture her writing them. Insane!
But enough about that. The actual book is a suspense and it was such an easy but still gripping read. I had to get to the end to find out who it was. And I am able to give you a copy of UNRAVEL by CHRISTINE BERNARD to read too! Just enter the Rafflecopter widget below.
Side note: I think I have a tummy bug. Not that you really needed to know that, but I’m feeling sorry for myself so I thought I’d share it haha.
Things i did yesterday instead of making supper and doing homework: 1. A load of washing 2. Packed the dishwasher 3. Had a glass of wine 4. Did some shopping on the new Exact website 5. Cared about my blog 6. Made a video 7. Edited pictures 8. Decided to join my family for a 5km run 9. Immediately regretted saying that out loud to my children 10. Whimpered through the entire run but made it! Things I’ve done today: 1. Cried every time I’ve moved my body 🤣 It was great though, very thankful to @exact_clothing and @theflyingpan_ct for giving me a night off! #EXACTwhatIordered
It’s raining because I ran: Every Monday Seth takes the kids for a 5km run. Crazy right? I never go because well, I hate moving my body. Anyway, the way they do it is that Seth takes our double pram with them and then the kids take turns to sit in it when they are tired. But then last week Kyla ran the entire thing in like 30 minutes or something crazy. So I thought, if she could do it, so could I. But I couldn’t. We took like 40 minutes and now my body is so freaking sore I could cry. I almost feel like I have the tummy bug as added punishment haha.
Watching: What even is TV? We haven’t had a chance to watch anything much recently because things have been a bit nuts. We finally finished Luke Cage (my gosh I could not wait!).
DEFENDERS: Thank goodness for Daredevil. He really brings the show together. Without him I think the show would be just as terrible to get through. But I really like him, and even Jessica has grown on me. And it even seems as though Luke and Danny can act better with Daredevil around. Although Danny still talks about the death of his parents in every single episode. Like shut up already.
BIG BANG THEORY: I know everyone hates on this show but I actually enjoy it. Judge me if you want to!
Our Newsletters: I don’t know if you guys subscribe to the newsletters but I have been sharing something on there that we aren’t really ready to go public with yet. It has something to do with a campervan… Eeek
