From when I first found out that I was pregnant, I was and still am, in a bit of denial about my growing tummy.
My spacial awareness wasn’t great before I fell pregnant, and hasn’t improved since. I tend to find myself walking into things, not fitting through spaces, and accidentally knocking people and things with my belly.
This weekend, I spent some time with my sister and grandma. We went to my cousin’s husbands cafe.
Little by little.
My cousin and her husband are both such an inspiration. Both did their respective university degrees, but have both since left the corporate world to pursue their passions in food and fashion. One has opened her own clothing boutique down on the Mornington Peninsula (Aurelia Boutique – Facebook), and her husband has more recently opened his cafe in Berwick.
Being an Accountant, at lot of the time its difficult to stay inspired and passionate at work. After all, stereotypically, accountants are “boring” and “have no personality”. This is definitely not me !! haha. I love my job and enjoy work, however, good food and cooking just make me happy to the point where it never feels like a chore.
One day, I hope I too am brave enough to be able to pursue, whether it be a career, or something I do on the side, within food.
For now, I will just continue to eat good food, in good company until that time comes…

We are so lucky to be able to just get away for the weekend and escape the hustle and bustle of every day life whenever we need a break.
I’m the type of person who always over commits and packs as much as I can into a weekend, even if it means that I end up more tired rather than rejuvenated. I feel like this is something I need to stop doing to ensure that I have enough time for myself, Matt and Miss Bean when she finally arrives… Definitely something I will need to work on sooner rather than later.
This is a great weeknight recipe, and much healthier than a takeaway pizza.
Where has the time gone…
I’m only about 12 weeks away from turning 28, and 14 weeks away from giving birth to my first child.
The last few years have been jam packed for me, in a good way of course !
I just finished reading Room by Emma Donoghue.
A few ladies at work decided that seeing the movie is meant to come out on the 28th of January 2016, that we should read the book and go see the movie together which has now been nominated for a few Oscars, one being best picture film of 2016.
Pregnancy has caught me completely off guard.
My assumptions of being able to eat whatever I want went straight out the window as soon as my Doctor mentioned that I’ve probably gained a bit too much weight too quickly!
Having built a career within Finance, I see myself as a level headed, logical person. Despite the warnings, I don’t think anyone could have prepared me for how emotional you can be during pregnancy.
