We have gone through a restructure at work and downsized. I currently work three days a week and had to think whether to put my hat in the ring for full time jobs but being a mother of two young children, after a lot of thought decided not too and now I am still waiting for what happens next.
Through all this we have tried to stop spending money on the house and are getting frustrated with all the little jobs that need doing. With a miserable Winter we have lost the motivation to do things ourselves and have been trying to get away from the house as much as possible.
In the past week though I have turned a corner and realised no matter what is going on my love of design, gardening and reading your blogs and home magazines is still there, so I am back!

Organising the party was full on but the actual day was so much fun, seeing the excitement on my little boys face, especially when his hero Spiderman rocked up! Spiderman (from Dreamscape children's entertainment) was worth his weight in gold keeping all the kids occupied with magic tricks, superhero exercises and balloon animals, hats and swords. He made my boys day, he had a grin from ear to ear. This meant I could just enjoy!
This weekend I am off on a girls weekend away. We are leaving tomorrow morning for Rye on Mornington Peninsula to visit wineries, eat great food and just relax. Can't wait! I sure the weekend away with great company and in a beautiful setting by the beach will motivate even further.
