The Life Of A Working Mum  A single mum trying to find balance | Nurse | Northern NSW based | Started The Blood Sugar Diet 5.3.18 | Snippets of our life in squares

Nightshift....omg I hate them!! Luckily only 2 in a row but how do people do permanent nights? I usually can’t sleep before a night shift because my body is saying “what the hell are you doing woman”, while my brain is saying “just trying to prep for night duty”. I’m lucky in a way I suppose as in my work area I’m busy all night long, but I reckon if I sat down I would snooze lol. I don’t know when/what/if I should eat, then it takes me two days (1 to sleep) to figure out what’s day/night and what I’m meant to be doing again. Whyyyyyyyy can’t those night lovers do all the nights and leave the remainder of us to fill the day shifts 👌 .

I hope everyone’s Mothers Day was filled with peace, love, and less tantrums!! Mother’s day for me marks the anniversary of the day I decided to put myself first, for my happiness, my self worth, my future, and most importantly for my son & his future too. We started our day with some cuddles in bed, then Max was very excited to finally give me his present he made at daycare. Then today, I took my rainbow baby to explore Byron Bay! Max fell in love with the rainbow shop and wanted one of everything, he enjoyed the culture down by the beach whilst we enjoyed our lunch, and then we visited the lighthouse. Max is now tucked up in bed and I’m reflecting, about how proud of the woman that I am, and that I am a reflection of the amazing women who raised me! She is my inspiration, and I hope I can have shit together one day as well as she does! Happy Mother’s Day mumma.

This little cutie requested pizza for dinner and my response was yes, let’s have pizza tonight!! Base is made on cauliflower with garlic, herbs, egg & cheese spread out & baked. Then topped with our favorite toppings and back in the oven to cook the toppings. So yummy and a healthy alternative that gets a big tick of approval from this guy.

The struggle is real tonight. Went to work yesterday for an evening shift and ended up working a double and finishing this morning. Wrecked is an understatement but luckily it was day care day and I got a few hours sleep today. But my biggest problem is....my hair is dirty and all I want to do is go to bed lol

Enjoyed a wonderful weekend with my gorgeous friend @missionminimilly we stayed on track with eating well (this was a first for us), Netflix & chilled with some vodka & soda’s, then a morning at the beach and a yummy chicken salad with tzatziki dressing. Such a good weekend that was exactly what the soul needed.

I’ve been doing yoga each night with Max before he goes to bed to help with anxiety and also help him calm down in the hope he will go to sleep a little easier. It’s been a fun challenge but he really enjoys our new nightly routine and his favorite part is the relaxation at the end. I’m also using relaxation music to help him switch off and get to sleep, and whilst some days take longer then others, it works well for us. What do you do with your little ones? .

The last few mornings have been a little fresh so breaky in the sun on the veranda has been perfect! There’s some coconut yogurt burried under those berries.

On the way home from our little getaway we stopped in to check out the Crystal Castle in Mullumbimby. It did t disappoint at all, such an amazing experience and the kids loved learning what the areas mean, the crystals, and statues.
