its been awhile...

So its been a long while since I've written on here. Life got in the way and quite frankly I forgot about blogging. It just didnt seem important.

Quite abit has happened since April. 

We went away on our little Mountain Retreat. It was so beautiful and I still think about Springbrook everyday. I want to live there. It was freezing and while usually I hate the cold... I really embraced it up there. The big spa baths and warm fireplace made it a lot more bearable, but it was just so beautiful being in the rainforest and listening to the running brook. oh gosh, I miss it now!

I turned 27. Its abit of a nothing birthday so I didnt feel any different. Maybe just more... mature. haha.

In June, early one Sunday morning, I found out I was 5 weeks pregnant. Doctor confirmed it for me one day later. Then another two days days later, I started bleeding heavily and after a few hours in hospital, I found out that I had had an early miscarriage.
That was an emotional week for me, going from being excited to devastated within a matter of days.

I'm back on track, thanks to the great support of my friends and family and my partner who stood by me the entire time, and I'm looking forward to the future again.

I've been keeping busy with work (boo!) but also we've been trying to do up little bits of the house. I'm busy choosing paint colours and pinning ideas til my finger is sore for different colour schemes and ideas of how rooms should look.
Now I just need an endless budget...

Anyway I'll try and keep the blogging up... 

but life may just get in the way again!

body balance

... was HARD work!

i'm definitely feeling it today. muscles i didnt even know i had, are sore.

but don't worry. i wont give up (although i didnt manage to make it to the gym for weights today. my bad). i really enjoyed the class and i recommend it to everyone!!

although i really need to practice my tai chi moves.

i looked like a flailing stork.

now please excuse me while i go and soak my body in a hot bath...

Patience... and zen

i am not a patient person. i hate to wait.

i read alot of other blogs on a daily basis. and those blogs look AWESOME! and mine doesn't...

my lovely sister, L, is working on making mine look alot better - because i suck at gadgets and widgets and dont even own photoshop and her blog looks so pretty so i have bribed her to do mine. i know when shes finished, it will look good - but i hate waiting! i want my blog to look awesome NOW!

so please be patient with me while i get this page looking what i want it to look like. so please be patient and i hope to wow you all soon!

in other news - today is my last day before i have a holiday. me and tuffman are escaping away to the rainforest for a few days next week for my birthday.

i am excited beyond belief.  we're staying in a little chalet next to a rainforest stream. the chalet has a fireplace AND a spa bath.

could you get any prettier?

its going to be relaxation to the MAX.

i've got my yoga music ready and will be doing my routines when i can. i'm going to find my inner zen goddammit! i'm going to connect with nature.

this afternoon i'm starting my holidays off with Body Balance at the gym - this class is a mixture of yoga, pilates and tai chi.

lets hope i dont look too uncoordinated!

i’m the new girl… but not so new.

so. i’ve finally done it. i started my blog!

i’ve been thinking of doing this for a long time. and even started a few little ones here and there. but life got in the way and i ended up forgetting all my username and passwords. typical.

but NOW i have a new app on my phone which keeps ALL of my username and passwords for me – so i’ll never forget one again!
well as long as i dont forget the password to get INTO that app…. hmm

But back onto topic.

my blog.

my diary. my words. my thoughts. but where to start…

maybe i’ll start off by introducing myself and telling you abit about me and my sitch.

i’m nearly 27 years old. i live in the burbs in a lovely house. my partner, tuffman, is my world and i love him so much that sometimes it honestly hurts. we’re not the perfect couple but hes my best friend and i wouldnt have it any other way.

tuffman has a daughter and she is sunshine. this is the girl who changed me from a yahooing, never-having-kids, bachelorette party girl to someone who desperately wants a child of my own.

and for the first time EVER, i have also joined the gym. mainly for the yoga classes (which i love!) but i figured i have to get my body into some sort of shape before i embark on putting it through making a human.

i’m now into week 2 – and still – so far so good. ask me again in another 2 weeks…

so thank you for reading – i promise to keep you entertained.. maybe…
