Reflecting on march

Renovations

March is another month where we have continued the pause on our renovations. We are in the process of finding quotes for doors, skirting and architraves which has actually been surprisingly difficult to do. While doing this we are trying to save a little bit more in preparation for completing the bathroom renovations later in the year.

reading

Book wise I ended up reading 10 books for the month which I am pretty happy with. I managed to complete

My favourite read for the month would probably have to be Persephone Station by Stina Leicht which is a science fiction book set on another planet and follows some badass female characters! I also read my first ever book club read, which is really exciting. We read ‘The Weekend’ by Charlotte Wood and are meeting up early this month to discuss and choose out next book.

Family

Baby is still in there and he’s still growing. Right at the end of the month I went into the hospital for some monitoring after having a very persistent headache but both Bub and I are okay! Very grateful for all the nurses and midwives at the hospital who made me feel really comfortable, even though I felt a little like I was being a drama queen! 

Aside from that we were preparing our fur baby Archie for his de sexing, which with an anxious pet can be a bit of work but its all in hopes that he will have a smooth transition when going in for the procedure, so here’s hoping it all helps.

life

The last 4 weeks of Term have been fantastic but a marathon! It’s been really hard to focus on much outside of work trying to get through each day and not be a total exhausted heap when I get home. I have still been playing Animal Crossing for a little each night, I am currently working on collecting Nook Mile Tickets so that I can do a dream villager hunt stream later in April. 

We are also trying to get into a better cleaning routine so that when the baby does come we can hopefully stay on top of everything but that may be a pipe dream!
