Fish like this don't just happen, they require a lot of hard work, effort and team work. My fishing Dad Captain Phil from Blue Water Adventures. gave us the spot, Dave Woodman & Matt Halliday were my crew today and we all worked like clockwork to nail this 361kg Broadbill. Thank you to everyone mentioned above, I am still speechless. Nicky

One of my friends said to me today "I love my kids but ALWAYS talking about kid shit doesn't interest me" and my response was "I love talking about kid shit - it's all my life is LOL" ...
Her kids are a little older so her life doesn't have to be all about kids anymore but it did get me thinking:
I really don't have a life outside of my kids. Is that a bad thing?
I mean, I do have other interests: Wine, Kmart, Coffee .... and of course my website. Which ironically is all about kids :/
But other than that, I'm fully immersed in this parenting gig.
When I go to a supermarket and see another parent, I look to them with eyes that say "please be my friend and acknowledge me as a human" ....
If I see a Mum struggling with their child I always give a sympathetic look and secretly wish I could jump in and help.
Once in a cafe I pulled out one of my own kids' toys and gave it to a screaming child - in the hopes it would help the parent out a bit.
When I bloody stand in a queue, I rock backwards and forwards as if I'm rocking a baby. It actually comforts me!
Everything in my body screams "I'M A PARENT" haha ...
Sometimes, when I'm at home alone (thank god for my husband who looks after the kids on the weekends), I still think I can hear a child crying :/ ....
Being fully immersed can be overwhelming, but it does however have it's advantages. It makes me really appreciate non-kid things ... it makes me appreciate when my parents look after my kids for the day. It makes me appreciate lone trips to the supermarket, or Kmart. It makes me appreciate that one-on-one friend time i don't often get.
I love my kids, and I know there is more to me than just them, but for now I'm going with it and I kind of love it.

Hello love of my life! Guys I came home and saw my dogs for the first time in two years last night and my heart is honestly so full and happy, they are both so happy and healthy living with their nana 🤗 How beautiful is my baby girl booya, 14 years and youthful as ever ❤❤
Yes I could of ironed or steamed my cardi before I took the pic. Grabbed the cardi straight out of its packet actually. Probably could of ironed my t shirt to. Probably could of accessorized or even put shoes on. Or even a t shirt that wasn't wet with baby dribble. But hey, I have a sick baby at home and she was waking up after her massive 17 minute afternoon nap. So this is the best I have to offer. Under eye bags of tiredness are awesome to haha.
However, this 100% merino cardi is amazing to wear and in store Friday. I love the soft pink and grey colours together. Perfect for this in between crazy weather we are having. 🌸 promise I will try harder with the photos tomorrow 👍
Actually in other news...... I have a very very very amazing ADELE giveaway happening tomorrow 💋👸🏼 see you then.
