Ahhh Holidays - where I get to dress like a normal person in clothes other than activewear! Making it a POINT from now on that activewear is only for being ACTIVE! I always feel so much better about myself when I put some form of effort into my appearance Let's see how long it lasts! Hope you're all having a GREAT Friday! Not Im off to change out of my civvies and into my #activewear for a quick HIIT workout! No run today But still going to get moving! #needposinglessons#notamodel
Did you know @redcrossau is in desperate need of type O donors right now? That seat right there could be yours.
Even if you're not a type O, they still need your help and you could save lives.
I just got bumped up to the highest volume of plasma donation today, because today is my 20th successful donation. #savelives#donate#help

I finally decided to clean out (throw away) my massive collection of make up that I never use. It's probably been in there longer than I've had kids.
And so I decided to spoil myself with a whole new set from @db_cosmetics. I was so surprised by how affordable this brand is. I cannot wait to try it all out. So many bloggers that I follow have been raving about this brand.
Would it be ok to put on a full face to just be at home with the kids? Hehehe #littlelifeco#mumlife#mummyblogger#makeup#dbcosmetics#notsponsered#justsharing#soaffordable
A year ago, almost to the day, I wrote a blog called “Potty Training Envy” and I rambled on how hard it had been after two failed attempts at potty training Ari. I felt defeated, and flat, like a failure, that I didn’t have the tolerance to keep trying with him, keep mopping up those puddles and what?… hang in there until he eventually did a poo on the floor? No, no, no, I don’t have pets because I don’t want to find poo surprises, that’s kind of like a Kinder Surprise, only instead of the toy inside the brown egg-shaped chocolate, there’s poo. The only surprise is that you find it via sniff or slipping on it. Jury is still out on whether a poo nugget on the floor is better than a poo nugget in the undies… Lucky (or not) for me the only two poo accidents we ever had were once outside and once in the shower (shudder*). I found myself wasting many little undies as I threw them straight into the bin with whatever residue the nuggets had left behind....

This is something that I think children of separated parents benefit from. They become very adaptable and very resilient. I was a child whose parents got divorced too and I think it taught me some great life lessons and gave me some personality traits that have really helped me pull through in tough times. There are lots of other things that teach our separation can teach kids too - independence, resourcefulness, that we get second chances in life, that we will not accept being miserable in life and the list goes on. Our children are amazing What have you found to be the best thing your children have learnt? For me it's probably that we deserve to be treated with #love and #respect in a relationship (and it should be reciprocal) and that if it's not the case we don't have to accept that or stand for it
