ten on ten | march

Tuesday, 11 March 2014

Hello! It's been a while... I'm trying to get my blogging mojo back. It's been a pretty rough month - the real low point being a trip to hospital after my lingering cough had progressed to a mild pneumonia. I'm feeling much better after antibiotics, but my body and mind are completely exhausted. I've been feeling pretty overwhelmed lately trying to deal with feeling unwell, sleep deprivation, filthy house, blah blah blah. Of course, there's been lots of joy and fun times too... life is such a mixed bag, isn't it?

- My little blondie in the morning sun
- Bed hair and Humpty Dumpty eggs
- Nappy change (such long toes!)
- It's still hot here, but there's something in the air that has me making porridge sprinkled with cinnamon
- A quick pooch smooch before heading to the aquarium
- "Nemo's!!"
- Our yearly pass to the aquarium is the best family investment - such a good morning out!
- Afternoon nap (Another double-finger-sucker!)
- A routine check-up
- In her own little world at bath time

Joining in with the 10 on 10 project.


  1. Oh Claire, I'm so sorry to hear about that. Life is definitely all highs and lows mixed up in one beautiful ride.
    I love that you are persevering with this project, and want to thank you for sharing your beautiful imagery with us. I'm always inspired by every single shot that you share.
    Lots of love to you, and hope you can get a little bit more sleep this week...

  2. Mate, I know how tough it can be, but you poor sod, pneumonia! Build yourself back up, baby and worry about the housework later. Those darn babies and their lack of sleep... it wrecks you, just WRECKS you. Luckily they are gorgeous and luckily you know that you can still take the most amazing shots going (nemo!). I know you're feeling low, but you've cheered me up no end. Take care of yourself. x

  3. oh claire! the only thing harder than being a mumma is being a sick mumma. Take time to get yourself well, everything else can wait.
    these are wonderful pictures, you're so inspiring. I keep missing the 10th every single time..maybe April x

  4. oh wow Claire, pneumonia. I've had it once and never want to experience it again, you poor thing. Glad to hear you're on the mend and hope the next month is a better one. Gorgeous photos as always... xx

  5. Oh love. Sickness is just not what you need right now. It tips you over the edge into 'not coping' territory. I'm not hugely into astrology, but a friend recently told me about mars being in retrograde right now. I googled and found an article which mentioned feelings of paddling upstream, low energy, anger flare ups. Blew my mind how well it described how i've been feeling lately! I'll email it to you, see what you think.

  9. So sorry to hear you've been so unwell Claire. Hope you're feeling much better soon. x

  10. Take care and be extra kind to yourself - I'm sure you'll be feeling your old self sooner rather than later :)
    I can't believe I forgot about ten on ten again - maybe it just isn't meant to be.

  11. Crikey Claire, I hope you're ok? Rest up Mama. Beautiful pictures. That one of Lalie being a doctor is so so sweet. xx
