Well my menu planning for 12 days went on the fridge and per tradition life shuffled things around. Funny shifts, forgetting to put the prepped bowl in the slow cooker and my personal favourite (also last night’s dinner) “No. I’m done. Get pizza.”
Here’s how my fortnight was planned out. Keep in mind that I have an almost 2 year old and still do 4 shifts each week.
As you might notice there’s already a bit of shuffling. Mostly to make sure fresh vegetables don’t become slime in the crisper. The pumpkin in particular I almost lost but thankfully even though I forgot to drop the slow cooker in on Sunday morning it was fine to go ahead on Monday. My husband didn’t even pout when I announced meat-free Monday would simply transfer over to Tofu Tuesday. My fortnight has been a bit hectic so having plans that I can shuffle a bit has been sanity saving.

Yesterday was pretty warm, but my day was red hot, like my nails.
I had an amazing morning catching up with my mummy friends, getting our nails done. Relaxing afternoon with Daddy and bubby, then a swim and after dinner and bedtime I chilled out in the a/c watching “Suits.” So yeah, winning at life. Today is looking mighty fine too…
While the name “Life of L Ball,” is fairly open, I’ve been thinking lately about renaming and changing my blog, but any time I get to slow down and have thoughts… I get easily distracted (by my gorgeous daughter) She’s … Continue reading →
This story comes to you at 2-3am. Trapped in the nursery chair again. I was blessed with a child that has been known to sleep, so it does my head in when she gets hysterical in the middle of the … Continue reading →
This guy!!! I know that there is not an equal division of labour in this house. I usually do 100% of the laundry and kitchen stuff 9/10 days. First let me point out that Mr. Ball is a very hard … Continue reading →
So I’m doing a thing. For me. Here’s the story: This year, my adorable, bubbly, precious daughter took over my life. Without intending I managed to put her schedule ahead of any of my wants or needs. Who wouldn’t? She … Continue reading →
