Working 9 to 5

So I am back in the work for the first time in almost 2 yrs. We decided my husband should quit his day job and become a full-time house husband. I have been so apprehensive about going back to work and how things would go at home with my husband having complete control, so far things have been going really great and I am really enjoying being at work and coming home to a meal that I haven't made and a clean house. Although by the end of the week I was starting to really miss Violet.
It was a rocky first week back, first up I came down with a shocking cold the day before, I was umming and ahhing weather or not I should call in sick, but decided that would look pretty bad and to just suck it up and go. We slept in to about 8, which never ever happens and then the car wouldn't start and I had to catch a cab and he ended up missing the turn off, I ended up being really late. And now since then I can't seem to get my shit together, I guess it doesn't help being sick; anyway tis a new week so hopefully it will go better.

Portrait a week of Violet

We spent 5 days in Fiji last week and Violet had an absolute ball,  Fijians are so nice and absolutely love children, so it as a great holiday for us.  How cute is the flower in her hair!

Portrait a week of Violet

I'm a little late (again!) this week, but we were on holidays so I was a bit busy. I just love this photo of Violet. Pants have become optional here, I just wish she would use the Potty!

Portrait a Week of Violet

This weeks photo has been challenging, I have taken a fair few photos and this is the best of the lot. This kid is quick, let me tell you! Gone are the days of plonking her down and getting snap happy.  I really have to be fast to get a photo of her that's not just a blur.

Portrait a Week of Violet second photo for the year!
This is Violet about to jump onto the dinning room table; I'll be very happy when the excitement of doing this subsides. I try to convince her to do other things, but no, being king of the castle is way more fun!

Portrait a Week of Violet

This is my first photo in my 52 week challenge. Here she is in her new pool, which she received for Christmas. We are currently spending most of our time here, trying to cool down in this insane heat!

It's Been a While

It's been a while since I last wrote in this blog and honestly I pretty much thought this blog had come to an end. But with a little encouragement from a friend I have decided to start it up again.  I think this year will just be a documentation of my family, but who knows?
I really can't believe 2013 is over and a new year has begun ...I'm feeling a bit funny about it. I'm really not very excited by the thought of 2014 and would like time to slow the fuck down! I go back to work in a month and the thought of not spending my days looking after Violet makes me feel queasy. I know she will be in the best hands (my husband, he will be quiting his day job) but still, that comes with an array of worries- will the floors get cleaned? will her shirts match her shorts? will dinner be on time? Hmmmmm....I'm kind of kidding there, but kind of not too.  I'm sure all that stuff will all work out and perhaps being around other adults and using my brain again will be good for me? I am sceptical though.
So anyway, I have a few goals for this year - the first is a "photo a week of my child", which I will post on the blog. I have seen this on other blogs and I think it's a great idea.
Draw more- I used to draw compulsively and I don't draw too much at all these days. I picked up a visual diary yesterday and have done a few doodles, boy I am way out of practise.
Run - I would love to go back to the gym, but it is just too expensive. Running is free, I just have to stay motivated...we'll see.
Cut down on alcohol (says she with a bottle of cider in her hand) - the main reason for this is I would like to loose a bit of weight and I think most of my calories are from the few glasses I have at the end of the night.  I just wish wine didn't taste so good!
And that's it!

Come on 2014 prove me wrong and be a bloody fantastic year!
