Last 3 months

The last three months have flown so fast. I look at the diary, a mess of scribbles, trying to work out what I'm going to discuss with you. We've had picnics at the beach, a weekend away with friends, been to concerts and shows galore.

I've been on outings with the kids to zoos, mini golfing and exhibitions.

I've explored areas of Sydney I've never been to before (and Port Kembla & outskirts of Sydney)

I've had two indulgence trips to Melbourne for the day and Adelaide overnight, for an exhibition and concert respectively.

We've had two days out on boats, and some ferry trips to beaches.

The kids have been busy with all the school related stuff, plus jobs and learning to drive...ahhh, It never ends.

Yet if you ask me what I've been up to, I'd reply 'Nothing'. It's only looking at the photos for this post that I realise how much fun I've had. I've had a good three months but nondescript in the grand scheme of things, though minute by minute is generally enjoyable and that, my dear friends, has to be enough.

I'll leave you with this quote, that has me thinking, maybe I need to work out how to squash even more fun in!

“Those who make the worst use of their time are the first to complain of its brevity.”

How would you sum up the last three months?

  2. what beach is that top photo? Looks gorgeous.

    1. Neilson Park, on a spectacular sunny day - back in Jan!

    2. Will have to investigate. LOVE!

  3. Life go es by so quickly that we often forget all of the moments that seem small and insignificant, but they can be the big things in the long run so it's important to remember them.

  4. Wow, you packed a lot into these first three months! I feel like I've kind of done nothing in comparison.

  5. that is the best quote! I'm going to stick it up on the wall as a reminder!

  6. Love your mini escapes. Originally from Sydney, I lived in Kiama before moving to Qld so know Port Kembla well. I'm also off to Adelaide in May. What a great 3 months so much fun! Thanks for sharing.

  7. You do much much more than you think..what a lot of experiences and memories you have made. It seems to this reader/follower that there is a lot of going out and about for many reasons! Thanks for linking up for #lifethisweek 13/52 Next week: Daylight Saving is Over.

  8. You have so many adventures. It's motivating me to get out a bit more!

  9. Looking back at your photos on your phone soon prompts your memory. I often need to do this too to realise that I have been a busy girl and that there is never a dull moment! #TeamLovinLife

  10. If I go with the first thing that come to mind I'd say the last three months have been 'wasted'. But that's really in a food, eating, diet and exercise sense.

    If I take a minute to think about it, it's been a time of change and I think that's a good thing.

    I love that you're so motivated to get out and do STUFF Lydia!

  11. Seems like you've had a good time and made the most of everything and got out there and DONE STUFF :) I loved the quote you used today: “Those who make the worst use of their time are the first to complain of its brevity.” So true. #teamlovinlife

  12. That sounds like a wonderful 3 months 😊

  13. I love these recap posts as they really make you see just how much you've done & what you've fitted in. Have a great weekend. #teamlovinlife

  14. Wow - I think you've squished in a lot more than I have in the past 3 months. Can you believe we are just about up to April already? #TeamLovinLife

  15. Oh wow port kembla looks beautiful! I would love to go there, it sounds like you have had a great three months. I know what you mean when you say you feel like you've done nothing and then you look back at photos and you're like "hold up! I did a lot actually!" Haha isn't life funny that way? Thanks so much for sharing with #StayClassyMama!
