Milestones

This past week has been one of milestones.

My birthday sunrise, before work.

Thursday was my birthday, the big 3 0.
How an earth did that happen?
I am sure my mother is having the same thoughts at having a 30yr old daughter.
I think I've been a bit worried about reaching this age milestone but now I've leapt over that fence, it really is just another number.
Actually, it was a pretty non eventful day with just work, where I did get a little spoilt and get cake (which was needed after a morning of 12 toddler cyclones in the room), and antenatal class. It was over in the blink of an eye. 
I am hoping for a great year ahead and for another awesome 30 to follow filled with fun, family, growth, joy, new experiences and much more.


Saturday saw me reach 30 weeks.
Yet again, how an earth did that happen?
This whole pregnancy is speeding by.

30weeks

This week I also managed to be awake for the sunrise a few mornings AND to get out for photos at the lookout on Lake Morris/ Copperlode Dam road on Friday morning.


How exciting, the sun was actually out! 


Obviously, as per usual, I don't have a life beyond work (51 hours + travel this week) so the small things turn into big things. When I actually realise how many hours I've done between both jobs, I guess my tiredness is justified.


It was nice to get out and enjoy the quiet of the morning.


I better enjoy this while I can.
Speaking of which, 30 weeks means the paperwork for my parental leave from my night fill job has been handed in. End date in sight!


Thursday night we headed off to our second antenatal class, Mr Sparky under duress. I might have had a bit of a bit of freak out about not being ready for all this during and after class but a good nights sleep and this sunrise helped to put that behind me.


Sometimes I way overthink things. Well if you listen to Mr Sparky, it is more like all the time.


But hey, how could a view like this not sooth worries.




A bonus was that because of the recent rain the little waterfall on this road was flowing, not a lot but still pretty to see.



Friday was a day off for me, not that I did much other than washing and paperwork and of cause my little sunrise drive. I did have to go to work that night though. What a way at wreck a day off.


I just pretend my birthday was extended for a day so that I got to spend it more how I wanted to rather than at work like I did.

29 weeks + 6 days - me and my chins and my lens in my back pocket.


What do you like to do on your days off or days alone?
Any milestones coming up for you?

    1. The years speed by, don't they. I am not sure how I am managing the hours either. Lets just say I am not the nicest person at home a lot of the time and that housework is a work rather than action.
      Thank you!
