ramblings of a sick pregnant lady.

So... I am sick... again! This is officially the 4th time I have been sick with a throat/ear infection and flu like symptoms since I have been pregnant. And I would have to agree with the doctor who looked at my throat on Friday and said, "As if being pregnant isn't hard enough, you have a nice throat infection too!" or the woman who filled my prescription at the pharmacy who said, "I didn't think you were supposed to get sick when you are that pregnant!" Yeah lady, ME NEITHER!

Yes. I know. This sucks. Moving on.

Some random things to share....

1. I am not usually one to spend a lot of money on cards but have you ever seen this brand of greeting card?

I have gotten a few over the last couple of months and they have to be some of the cutest I cards have ever seen!

These three are all baby or pregnancy related, but I need to find out where they sell them so I can go and look at them all.

Because, honestly, how cute are they?!?!

2. I randomly ran in to this website while searching the question, "Where can I buy crescent rolls in Australia?" It is a forum for Americans who live in Australia... and turns out, I am not the only one who was wondering about the lack of crescent rolls in this country- haha.


I also can't buy cool whip, Pillsbury cinnamon rolls or ranch dip mix (just to name a few). And if you were wondering where this weird list of items I have come to realise I can't but here comes from- well, you can thank Pinterest for that because nearly every single easy, fun and yummy sounding recipe involves these ingredients. Damn.


3. Recent-ish thrift shop finds:

Lachlan's first camping chair- $3!  Yes, I know he won't actually be able to use this for a year.... or two, but who can pass up a $3 baby camping chair?? Apparently not me :)

This cool glass bottle. Still not sure what I am going to use it for exactly... but I loved it.

And these tea and sugar containers that just happen to be perfect for holding flowers and fresh herbs!

I loved the colours and they look great on our kitchen bench, thank you.

4. And finally, a whole heap of freshly grown and picked tomatoes and herbs appeared at our house on Saturday (thank you Peggy!) so I decided to make a nice tomato salad last night.

Well, I guess that is all for now. I am declaring now that tomorrow I shall be healed and back to work.... for 9 days until my maternity leaves starts that is :)



  1. I feel the same way about cards but Papyrus cards are really awesome. That is so strange to me that you don't have those random grocery items. I wonder why!?

    1. Yes, and that is just the beginning of the list!! I have had to learn all new things when it comes to grocery shopping since living here!

  2. I can relate, my first trimester I had glandular fever confirmed the day after the pregnancy, two bouts of gasto in three weeks, the flu and a round of tonsilitis. I'm now most of the way through the second trimester and have been feeling heaps better for a few weeks finally!!
    Hope some lemon and honey in hot water helps a bit. Our immune system apparently takes a beating whilst we are pregnant and my GP said with a toddler in the house illness is almost inevitable (that made me feel so much better!!!)
    I love the thrifty finds, the colour on the tea and sugar pots are gorgeous and now I want a tomato salad!
    Sending you wishes of a speedy recovery.

    1. OMG you make my flu sound like nothing!! I am so glad you are feeling better now. The second trimester was definitely the best for me and I hope it is for you too!
