Weekly Recap

Yesterday we had a category 2 Cyclone blow through our town, covering our town in trees and damaging power lines throughout. All our St. Patrick’s Day events were cancelled and as an former Irish Dancer, I was a bit sore and sorry about that. We were lucky that we didn’t lose power and all our trees that fell missed the house and the car but today we spent the day cleaning the yard and removing all the debris. There is so much green waste that the council has issued a warning about going to the tip. At least I was able to read for a chunk of the storm once the toddler had gone to sleep. Otherwise, I haven’t been so productive this week as we prepare for the big move to Melbourne and I juggle university with raising a very active toddler.

Monday’s Madness – Take Control Update


Thursday’s Throwback – The Healing Party


Nothing this week.


I didn’t make it this far this week.

Book Haul

I am not to buy any new books until we have moved interstate. Ross’ boss finds it hard to believe we have so many books.


I am not borrowing any books as we move in about a month and I need to get through the ones I have before we leave.


I am being good as I barely am reading on my iPad or kindle at the moment.


I have barely thought about getting any new books as I feel like I am drowning in books on here.


I avoid my NetGalley emails at all costs as there are way too many tempting books to request.
