We’ve saved over $2000 in three months! Woo.
I know it’s not a lot to some people but to a young, single-income family with three kids and a mortgage, it’s not too bad.. And we haven’t even been that strict.. We could have saved double this if we really buckled down on it.
We’ve just never been good at saving so I’m proud we’ve even saved this much.
We just need another $5000 to reach our goal for moving to Perth.
Hopefully by March next year.
We can doooo it.
And yeah we save our money in a box like hobos.

It would be much cheaper to live in the place we own but it’s tiny and we outgrew it the moment Evan began crawling.
We’re keeping it, as it’s a really good investment property.
We’ll buy our forever home once I’ve started a career / when we’re bringing in a double income.
For now, we don’t mind renting. :)

He’s grown so much! It’s crazy.
He’s a few inches shorter than Evan though.
Isn’t it weird that this time next year, Felix will probably just be a few inches shorter than Otto??
They don’t stay babies for long.
So happy to be home with my sweet little beans.
Anonymous said: What are your favorite things to do with your family?
Literally anything, as long as we’re together.
Whether that be catching a plane and going on an exciting holiday, or just sitting in the living room doing puzzles, eating fruit and having silly conversations.
I don’t ever do anything and think “this is my favourite thing to do”
I just look at my family and think “these are my favourite people to be with”
Super cheesy but it’s true.
Anonymous said: How are u feeling? U should do a before and after of your weight loss.
I’m okay, unless I eat something fatty because that causes me pain and vomiting. It’s not ideal but I’m okay.
I don’t think I should do that because the weight was lost in undesirable and unhealthy circumstances, I don’t think it’s right to glorify it.
Speaking as somebody with a previous eating disorder, I think it could be triggering to some.
Anonymous said: Why will you move? Can you do a house tour please?
I did one ages ago but the house is quite different now so I would do another one but I kinda can’t be bothered.
I’m so lazy. I’m sorry.
We are moving house because we are moving to the other side of the country.
Would totally take the house with us if it were possible!
Tidy kids room is worthy of photos.
Also, today we changed the boys’ cots into toddler beds..
I’m nervous because last time we tried to transition Evan into a toddler bed, it didn’t go well. He kept getting up at night. That was a year ago though, so who knows.
I think Otto will do fine though.. He’s just a totally different kid.
I’m gonna miss this room when we move.
Anonymous said: Do you say get surgery instead of have surgery in Australia?
To me, in certain contexts, “get” and “have” can be interchangeable.
Like you can get sunburn or you can have sunburn. It’s the same, right?
No? Maybe I just suck at Englishing.
I’m not sure.
