Spirited Mama

Living a SPIRITED life filled with wanderlust, emotions and everything in between

Month: January 2015

You want what??????

So last night Dude throws me a HUGE curve ball!!!!!!

He would like another baby! No not a property or a new car BUT a BABY! I’m caught off guard.  I still am.  I have no reason to NOT have another baby other than I always thought since Dudie came along he would be my only child. I know that Dudie will LOVE the idea of a sibling but I’m just confused.

In fact I would like a cabriolet and I guess we can fit two car seats in the back but this is another person we are talking about. Another life to protect for as long as we both shall live! I like the idea of having another child but I’m just not so sure about the execution.

Dudie is 5 going on 15. And he in himself is 100 in 1 kids to manage.  I love him to bits but some days are just exhausting! How will I manage another child who needs to get into a routine and fit into our lifestyle.

My biggest fear is sharing myself between 2 kids….And juggling work and being in Spiritville and being a wife, a lover, a friend, a mom, a person…. Not sure how to juggle ALL those balls with a new baby in the mix.

The more I think about it, the more confused I become! It’s like a huge ape sitting on my shoulder pestering me to make a decision and quite frankly I don’t know which one to make.

This is how we currently sleep…Dudie starts off well in his own bed but 4 out of 7 night she sneaks into our bed….and well every so often I go and have my back re-aligned…professionally.

Where would a baby lie?

dudieSometimes Dude complains of his nightmares…it’s generally about falling off the bed but it is in fact no nightmare…it is real…Dudie will push me towards Dude’s side of the bed and so I push Dude to the edge. LOL

Decisions decisions decisions…

P.S this was a random image that I found on my hard drive so I have no idea where it originated.  The persons in the picture couldn’t care less about credits they just NEED sleep. So let them.

P.P.S Did I mention that I’m now getting back into shape and Dudie wants me to grow a person..again!

Hello…..Back from my GAP year!

Hello 2015!

I can’t believe it’s been soooo long since I’ve blogged.  I’ve missed it. Very much so. There were days when I wanted to blog and I signed in all BUT then I just sat there and stared…  I’m not sure how or why I was taking this GAP year, which initially I planned as a GAP month or 3 but it ended up being more than a year.

It feels weirdly odd but good to be here again.


So many things have happened.  The good, the bad and ugly cries.  But also so many amazing good things have happened.  I might share but for now I am easing into 2015. And I’m trying to take it slow.  To stop and enjoy life.

My mind is in a tizz and I feel like I should be organising myself or making little to-do lists but I just can’t seem to bring myself to a point of “Begin”… I’m not entirely sure what 2015 has in store for Spiritville but for now I am stopping to smell the tulips….


I am in a mellow yellow kinda mood.

Happy 2015!
