Soccer Mom for a week

Living the dream. Well one of them. This past week I played Mom for four kids. My week was revolved around waking up super early to lift the kids, not before grapping a Nespresso from the coffee machine, shopping at Woolworths, driving the Mom's Mercedes Benz Compressor and enjoying gorgeous meals made by the house keeper Celi, at the ring of the 6pm dinner bell. I could get use to being a Soccer Mom but right now the freedoms of being a student, even on a shoe string budget are pretty attractive ;)

My favourite Cat in the Hat book is actually not by Dr. Seuss its ‘Where’s Wally ‘

Countless hours were spent looking for Wally in my Where’s Wally books.  The different eras and worlds were fascinating to me and drew me into the make believe world. A few weeks back I was looking after my little cousins and went into the dusty shed to find the box with my old childhood books, to keep them entertained. Interestingly enough my very well worn Where’s Wally book was by far their favourite, so I decided to handover my beloved Where’s Wally book. Sharing the joy!

Inspired by Ellie Goulding...

Do I expect too much, am I unreasonable?  Am I like a writer deciding the words that you say?  Am I disappointed because you don’t follow what I think you should say and do. It’s too hard to ask won’t you try to help me.  I keep telling myself that you are human and I’m not an artist, I can’t make you out of clay. 

Why I have conversations.

Some conversations can be like food and drink; refreshing and invigorating. Conversation can build you up and take the weight of ten bricks off your shoulders.  I like these kinds of conversations but life seems to be made up of many types of conversations ones that give you wings and ones that break you down.  Fundamental memories in my life revolve around certain conversation s I have had with people. I see conversations as what connects people it’s the foundation of any relationship.

Over commited

Life can feel overwhelming in no time when too many commitments are made. I am having an overload, commitment-wise time at the moment. I realised how frazzled I was when yesterday I forgot to bring my passport to the travel agency to pay for my flight to Thailand before it was cancelled, due to this forgetfulness my flight was cancelled and that specific flight special never to be seen again. To add to my bad day I forgot about an appointment which I had to book months in advance to get a spot. Sheesh!!  Serious bad day material!!   Then I had to gather up the strength to have a serious DMC (deep meaningful conversation) with a friend to clear up some issues. The conversation was actually great and things resolved so at least my wreck of a Wednesday ended on a sweet note.

My life at the moment feels like one bit pending experience:

I'm waiting to hear if I've got into the first round of interviews for next years graduate programmes.
I'm waiting to hear if we are going to move to Tokai from Claremont not.
I'm waiting for my boyfriend to come home from overseas.
I'm waiting for my friends nest egg to arrive so that we can book our overseas trip.
I'm waiting for my gym sessions to show some results.

Although that sounds like an annoying place to be with all the waiting, the anticipation is in fact exciting!

My big fat BIG dream

I dream of a job that I can’t wait to get to in the morning and a beautiful home and family that I can’t wait to get to in the afternoon. My dream is to live in a place which is near mountains and the sea. My dream is filled with freedom and love where I have time to really live and experience all the goodness that life has to offer. 

My dream is to always be able to be genuine and honest and to do what I love to my best ability in all aspects of life.

My dream is that at the end of my life my regrets are few that I can undoubtedly say that my use of life was spent on something that will outlast it.
