Back on board and a trip away!

I can’t believe it’s been so long since my last post.  The last couple of weeks have just been insanely busy getting ready for our trip away.  We leave tomorrow! 

This trip is occurring in Week 4 of Term 4.  One of the busiest times in the school year.  I’ve had to work my butt off around the clock to get all the work done so that I can go away for a week at this unheard of time.  Probably the first teacher ever to have a holiday in Term 4.  Insane!!

But nevermind, it is all for a good cause!!  One that I am really looking forward to.  D’s friend is getting married next weekend.  We are driving over and it will probably take about 17 hours to get there.  We are staying overnight at some of his relatives, which will be the first time I have met them!

Essentially this trip has motivated me to do my summer wardrobe shopping and I am pretty much set for the season now.  Not only that, but I got all the sales!  I did really well with everything!!

There is a bit of catching up to do on our pregnancy journey.  A first trip to the fertility clinic!  Which I will write all about in my next post. 

And the other news, is that I still haven’t ovulated.  But the new cycle has begun again and once again, I am hopeful and excited that this month will be the one!  At least for an ovulation if not a conception.  That would be wonderful progress!!


  1. Hey, glad to see you are back! Great trip you have lined up, it looks beautiful. Summer!! I'm so jealous! We are just hitting Fall right now and it's been so cold, there is no doubt that Winter is just around the corner. Looking forward to your next post!

  2. Welcome back! I've been wondering about you. Glad to see you've been busy and looking forward to the big wedding!

    Take care!

  3. Hi all, Wedding is tomorrow and I'm really looking forward to it. It's been a busy few days. Took us two days to drive here and we have had a lovely time with family as well as a day together in Sydney shopping and then drinking wine overlooking Darling Harbour!

    Hope you are all well. And I will catch up on your blogs asap!
