Well that has been me this month. June was a big month for us. We had a flying trip to Townsville for my brothers wedding, we celebrated Miss 4’s birthday and I’ve made a big decision to start my own Social Media Management business and be my own girlboss. Exciting times ahead for this little duck. I’ve been busy working 3 jobs, blogging, being a wife, mum and friend and trying to find a happy balance between all that. Does that even exist? At the moment I’d say no…. but despite wearing too many hats I am loving it. It feels good to be so busy and to have my mind and heart set on something I have wanted for so long.

June – the month that was:

Making : Plans, plans – lots of plans.
Cooking : Lazy caramel slice in the thermomix – if your a themie owner you must try and here is a tip – make a double batch!
Drinking : Canadian Club – my new drink of choice.
Reading : Lots of social media and small business blogs.
Wanting : More money! Quickly! Ha!
Looking : For a quick way to make some cash. Got any ideas!
Playing : That memory card game with Miss 4  -she beats me every time!
Deciding : On the new business name
Wishing : Someone would buy my old car – Do you know of anyone who may be interested in a 2008 Kluger? Shoot me a email!
Enjoying : My electric blanket each night. So warm and toasty!
Waiting : For my logo designer to get back from her overseas trip so she can get to work on my logo – Hurry up N!
Liking : Mu current desktop wall paper.
Wondering : Where the next 6 months will take us.
Loving : Doing some extra work and helping out Katrina. So much fun.
Pondering : Ideas for new blog content.
Considering : Doing a no buy July – like dry July but no unnecessary spending. God knows I need to reign the spending in, but it sounds kind of boring.
Buying : Lots of birthday presents for Miss 4.
Watching : Wayward Pines,
Hoping :
Marvelling : At Caitlyn Jenner. I am actually obsessed with her story. I can’t waiting for her new show to air next month.
Cringing : At the thought of having to sort through all the kids toys.
Needing : More time in the day. More time for myself.
Questioning : Whether to drop a day at the optometrists or keep working there 3 days a week.
Smelling : Ecoya candles that I am burning most days.
Wearing : Ugg boots and track pants – it is beyond cold here in Wagga at the moment.
Following : This fab lady on Instagram.
Noticing : How grown up Miss 4 suddenly is. It was like she turned 4 and was instantly more grown up – how does that even happen?
Knowing : I am on the right path. This post from Hippie Mumma was a very timely read this morning.
Thinking : About Problogger next month and how excited I am about going!
Admiring : Mast 5 and his first school report. I couldn’t have asked for a better report – so proud of him and all the effort is putting in each day at school.
Sorting : Out a new website for one of my bosses.
Getting : Over the cold. I am not a fan of it at all!
Bookmarking: This quick and easy DIY to try in Miss 4’s bedroom. Jess is creating lots of quick and easy DIY – perfect for mama’s like me who aren’t so crafty.
Coveting : Any one of The Digital Picnic’s courses.
Disliking : The dog when he piddles inside.
Opening : A business paypal account – shiz is getting real!
Giggling : At Mast 5 praying for the bad boys in the juvenille jail each time we drive past. It is hilarious.
Feeling : Excited, nervous and scared all at the same time!
Snacking : Homemade hummus, carrot and celery.
Helping : Mast 5 learn his sight words. He is finally making some progress!
Hearing : The new Problogger podcast. If your a blogger you really need to subscribe.

Pip from Meet Me at Mikes is the brains behind the Taking Stock idea. You should go and check out her blog – its full of good stuff for nice people.

Tell me what are you bookmarking, snacking on and noticing this month… go!
