A Muddy Weekend in Instagram

Do you ever feel like you're just treading water, like you are busy, busy, but when someone asks you, you have trouble remembering what's been keeping you so busy. I get very forgetful when I'm in this state, forgetting appointments, jobs to do and worst of all groceries when I'm shopping and left the list at home. I hate this state, it makes me feel like I'm not accomplishing much and worse still my house is in a total state of disarray.

This weekend was one of those weekend, a not much, but lots happening kind of weekend. We did lots of baking, for gifts and to take to a party. We made a cool cubby house using the sheets and chairs, which was fun til Muddy Bubby came and pulled it all down. We did have fun rebuilding it though!

We checked on the bathroom renovations at 'Mummy's old house' as the Muddy Girls call it, and I'm feeling a little better as it's almost done (thank goodness). While Muddy Hubby painted I started the big clean up and some of the 'to do's' to be done before new tenants can move in.

Then we finished up with a big birthday party for a very cute 2 year old. My Muddy Tribe had a ball, playing in the big shed and getting dirty, making new friends and reacquainting themselves with cousins. It was so nice though to drive home watching a beautiful sunset, snuggle up on the couch to watch 'The Block' and then have an early night. It's the simple things I love the most.

Having newly discovered Instagram and LOVING IT, I'm keeping track of what we've been doing and reminding myself of why I feel so tired and want to be in bed early!

How was your weekend? Do you tread water like me, feeling like you're going nowhere?


  1. Sounds and looks like a beautiful weekend.
    I'd be lost without my lists to keep me on track - but I also have days where I'm go, go, go - but nothing comes off the liest!

  2. We've been doing lots of cubby house building too lately!

  3. It sounds like a lovely weekend Nat and those baked goodies look really yummy! I'm with you coming home to spend the evening with hubby watching tv sounds divine. xx

  4. Love the instagram shots of the Muddy Weekend, gorgeous! GO Muddy Bubby, he sounds like a real boy Nat, love it! You have four children Nat, I'm surprised you don't feel like you're constantly treading water... it's how I feel with only two! xoxo

  5. I love Instagram too Nat, it's a great way to record memories with low fuss. And I also absolutely have weeks/weekends like that, where I feel like I have blinked and Monday has come round again!
