So Ava and her Dad left for the UK last week and boy is it quiet in our house. Too quiet for my liking. Don’t get me wrong, it’s nice having time to myself but I’m really missing Ava’s gorgeous little face.
So far it’s been a good mix of down time and catching up with friends. I’ve forgotten what it’s like to be a free agent. Here’s how week one panned out.
Day 1: Friday
Lunch with the work crew (I’m usually hanging with Ava on Fridays) which turned into beers at Northcote Social Club – result!
Lazy night at home with leftovers and Netflix.
Day 2: Saturday
Sleep in. Washing, tidy up house.
Lunch at Short Round, took my laptop and worked on the blog.
Cocktails at Joe’s Shoe Store and dinner at Seoul Soul with lovely mate Peggy.
Day 3: Sunday
Sleep in. Not feeling super hot after espresso martinis and rich Korean food.
Start watching Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt on Netflix – awesome!
Lunch at The Aviary with old school bestie Melissa. Bloody Mary’s for $10, yum!
Work on blog, more Kimmy Schmidt episodes. Cooked super spicy chilli con carne.
Day 4: Monday
Home to watch more Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt episodes.
Work on blog.
Miso and soba noodles for dinner.
Finished S1 of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (a whole season in 2 days!).
Day 5: Tuesday
Food shopping on way home.
Chats with friends through the afternoon.
Watched final episode of Arrow S3.
Worked on blog.
Leftover chilli con carne for dinner.
Day 6: Wednesday
Mum met me at work, shopped for presents for friends.
Home for a cuppa.
Beef casserole, mash and veg for dinner. (Mum brought it with her – result!)
Today is Day 7 and so far the plan is pizza and movies with Mum tonight, yay!
Sounds like I’m having a ball and yes, I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t enjoying the space. But here’s just a few things I am missing:
– cuddles with my girl
– her big, bright eyes
– her funny little laugh
– playing Uno with my girl
– her happy little face when I pick her up from kinder
– stories and quiet time before bed.
Stay tuned to see how week two pans out xo
