You know that cliche, “Be careful what you wish for ..”. Well, it’s true. September and October have clearly highlighted the fact that my wishes do come true. Some wishes. My first class travel only has not yet materialised. Nor the BFF thing with Jessie J.
There have been so many days during my three years of being a SAHM, where I longed for busy-ness that had nothing whatsoever to do with raising a kid. Important, money making or brain stimulation busy. Not play date, tantrum controlling or laundry busy.
It’s taken a while (just over four years), but my desires have been fulfilled so fully that I have completely become of fan of Boredom, my new idol and god.
Not that I’m complaining. Just saying.
To keep those anxiety bogeymen at bay I just need to take on less projects – in fact, I turned many down in the last months. The people pleasing part of me who finds it hard to say no said no. Big yay.
So as we slowly wind down for the year, I’m trying my best to be as calm and present as I can with my mischievous M. Now before I sign off, let me point out that this really stupidly spelled adjective is pronounced “miss-chuv-us”, and not “miss-chee-vee-us”. That really gets on my grill. I need to get a life. I. Know.
Amongst the headless chook running these last couple of months, I did manage to squeeze in a couple of major baking sessions for some lovely friends, so I am so stoked about that. Baking is one of my favourite un-paid passions and maybe, just maybe, my wish in this area will be fulfilled and I will be able to sell some cakes legally in Germany. And this month is also my birthday month so expect to see a ridiculous cake in my next post. I’m so excited about this one!! Eeeeeee!
Have a great November!
