Battery low. Recharge!

On Monday morning, at 6:45am, I fell back to sleep on the couch while BB ran circles around the living room (yep, he walks now!) shouting “tractor tractor”.  My head was thumping and I felt like my throats had been replaced by millions of razor blades.

Hi all, Alex here!! This is the week that just seemed to encompass every single emotion that any human possesses. It was a roller coaster of emotions, ranging from being absolutely devastated to full on elation. It’s Friday night and I am absolutely exhausted. Mentally and physically drained. But what an incredible week it was. […]

Sto lat sto lat…

So guys I’m back, apologies for my radio silence, it has been a busy week filled with party preps and family fun times.  Munchuk has […]
