Looking Back on March

Here’s how the month of March went down for me.

The first weekend was packed with lots of blogging prep and taking photos. How packed you say? Well I took photos for my blogiversary, DIY Wall Hanging, Favourite Cruelty-Free Brands, Flat Lay Inspirations and Pinterest Outfit Recreations posts. This was pretty much all on Saturday, as Sunday saw us driving a few hours up North to visit Rory’s family. This amount of blog prep on one day is not at all normal for me, but I was feeling inspired!

After a regular week of work, the following weekend was again fairly busy. I spent most of Saturday taking a Revalidation course to keep my First Aid certificate current. A fun moment happened during my lunch break where I walked into the kitchen and saw the face masks from the CPR dummies all drying on a rack. I had to take a photo. I also did some baking this weekend. Red Blood Cell cupcakes! There was some kind of theme going on.

The following week was again very busy. My boudoir photos were ready for collection so I was very happy! I also spent two days at a Professional Development course focused on Infants and Toddlers. I learnt heaps and walked away buzzing with lots of new ideas which is always nice. Halfway through the week I started getting a cold, but I powered through. The weekend was again pretty busy. Lots of errands, some blog prep, and again another trip up north to visit some family.

Now we come to the worst week for me. Remember that cold I’d been powering through. Well as I didn’t really give my body time to rest, the cold developed and got pretty bad. By Tuesday afternoon, after a very busy morning looking after babies, I was down for the count. No energy, weak and tired body, coughs, headaches, stuffy nose, all of that. I was sent home and basically crashed for the rest of the week. A few of these days, I had an issue with the reader. My blog posts didn’t show up for two days, and dealing with that on top of my cold made me pretty grouchy for the whole time. On the bright side, during this time, I finally caught up on Game of Thrones and watched all of Season 6 and 7!

I was feeling better by the time our anniversary came around luckily!!

The last week of March was spent catching up with friends and family, and just having a restful Easter.

How was your month?

      I love organizing and taking photos for my blog, it’s definitely a helpful quirk for keeping me on schedule haha!
      I was unprepared to see all those masks in that tray like that!
      The cupcakes were so yummy! The lollies on top were cherry flavoured, so that part did actually remind me of medicine 😂
