As I’ve been slack on the blogging front, here’s a recap of what’s been happening the last 2 months.
Although the weather was very erratic and horrible. Warm one day, cold and raining the next. As a result, we as a family got pretty sick and the inconsistent weather was a contributing factor for sure.
My husband returned from his business trip earlier in the month and we were continuously getting sick since his return. Munchkin recovered after about a week and a half but I haven’t been able to shake it off. My husband still has a cough which just won’t go away.
After procrastinating for a while, I finally decided to start selling some of my clothes online. I have never sold clothes or shoes online and these are items that are still in good condition, some hardly worn and just don’t fit me anymore as my body has changed since having my first child.
So far it has been good. I have managed to sell several items and I still have more items listed. I haven’t made a large sum of money from these sales and most of my pencil skirts have been selling for around $5. But that’s fine by me and I am just happy to be offloading these items and getting a small amount of money in return.
I managed to read one book this month. It was a very short book about positivity.
MINDSET: How Positive Thinking Will Set You Free & Help You Achieve Massive Success In Life By Benjamin Smith
This is a very short book which gives some decent advice on how to change your mindset to think more positive. It’s not groundbreaking and doesn’t really offer anything new. However, it does serve its purpose as a quick reminder and inspiration to change our outlook and be more positive in our lives.
The sickness in my household continued in October. It took me a while to shake it off and just when things seemed to settle, munchkin got really sick 2 weeks ago with a bad virus which involved him getting high fevers in the middle of the night. My husband left for a business trip 2 days before munchkin got sick so that was even more stressful for me. Luckily I have my parents to help me out.
We had a long weekend at the beginning of the month and I was able to meet up with one of my dear friends for a day out. I haven’t seen him in the flesh for over 2 years and a lot has happened in his life during that period, most notably a divorce. But he has picked himself up and achieved so much since that horrible time, including getting promoted at work and buying a house so I’m very proud of him.
I had my 28 week scan at the start of the month and I’m happy to say that the baby is on track and growing well.
As I write this I am 33 weeks pregnant and I cannot believe how fast this pregnancy has gone. As munchkin came early at 37 weeks, I am almost expecting this baby to come early as well. I would like to get to 38 weeks this time however, fingers crossed.
Other than that we packed up 15 boxes with loads of baby items and other necessities and shipped them off to Sri Lanka. We will most likely be moving there in February.
I have also continued to sell items online. I managed to sell several more items of clothing and shoes and have also sold our IKEA shoe cabinets. There’s still plenty more to sell before we head off overseas.
Well the last two months have been busy but have also been consumed by sickness in my household. I really hope there’s no more plagues of sickness in November, however I have already managed to get conjunctivitis in my right eye 😦 I’m hoping that clears up in a few days.
November is going to be busy as need I to get as much done as possible before the baby arrives. I will also be going on maternity leave at the end of the month. Here’s hoping for a productive and sick free month!
