I am perfectly imperfect.

There, I said it.

I know my life may seem like it is going a little too perfectly lately judging by this blog and my social media (and believe me, some days I feel like things couldn't get much better), but in reality my life is still just as imperfect as it's always been.

Sure, I may have just landed the perfect part time job (the hours are ridiculously spot on for me), B may have just started working at the hospital as a doctor, I may have just quit Centrelink (Government support here in Australia) once and for all, B may have just purchased a new car, we may currently be living in our dream house, and we may be about to welcome a gorgeous new miniature dachshund puppy into our little family - but there is so much more to my life then all of the above..

Welcome to my imperfect life. You've been warned.

Me, with my acne ridden chin and dark under eye circles, binge watching Gossip Girl. Also, Ellie having a nap on top of our numerous piles of washing.


- One morning last week we woke up to a house full of maggots. Thankfully they hadn't started climbing up the walls or onto the carpeted areas yet, but they were literally all over the entire living space. There were thousands of them, and it took us all morning to clean them up.

- The other night (before my partner purchased a new, safe car for us to drive around in) I was designated driver in my '93 model Barina when B and I went out for drinks with his new colleagues from the hospital. Afterwards he and three of his doctor friends piled into the back of my shitbox and asked me to take them out for ice cream. It was raining at the time, and my tires had evidently worn down somewhat since I last checked them, as I almost crashed the car when driving down a slippery hill. Just imagine the potential headline if I hadn't managed to regain control of the car. Eeeek!

- Speaking of cars, my shitbox still has no air conditioning. The front drivers side window also doesn't wind down.

On my days off from work at my new part time job, rather than hopping into the shower and actually getting dressed ready for a day of blog designing (my other part time job), I instead stay in my exercise gear from my morning walk with B and spend the majority of the morning (or occasionally the whole day) lying on the couch watching YouTube videos.

- I recently found out that an old friend of the family had passed away and I haven't shed a tear. This person was a part of my life as a small child right up until my early adulthood, yet for some reason I feel emotionally detached from the situation. I have become emotionally detached from a lot of things in recent years and I don't know why.

- Ellie has an obsession with stealing socks, t-shirts, tea towels, etc. and making us chase her all over the house to retrieve them from her. She has us well trained and she knows it.

- I add a task to my daily to-do list only to not do that task, so I add it to the next days to-do list, then do the same thing again the next day. This can often go on for several weeks before I eventually do said task.

- Speaking of to-do list tasks, I still haven't unpacked my wardrobe since we moved in two and a half weeks ago, and I still haven't changed my address with all of my institutions, etc. I've also got a bunch of emails that I still need to reply to.

There is a hell of a lot more things that I could mention but I'm sure you guys get the general idea. Just remember that the next time I post a cute photo of Nala on instagram, or brag about something new that I have just purchased, that I'm probably sitting around in my sweat pants and putting off my to-do list whilst I'm doing so.

Tell me more about what's been going on in your life lately - good and bad. There will be no passing judgements around here I can assure you. :)

  2. This is a great post. Often bloggers paint such a perfect picture and seem to have it all together, but we all have trials and tribulations.

  4. I love this. All of our lives are like this. My life is a mess, the reason I can't write about it is because it would be painful to other people and could probably make me OR others unattractive to potential employers! Life is hard. I love, love love posts like this. :)

  6. Hahah! Loved this post Felicity! Were they really maggots or moth wormy things? Because a couple of months ago we woke up to the same thing! There was an epic worm party going on in our breadcrumbs in the pantry where they decided to migrate from. Totally gross. Before I found the original source I thought I was going mad! And if it makes you feel any better Luke & I have been living in our current house for almost 10 months and we still haven't unpacked some stuff. Which is just as well because we just decided we're moving!

    1. Oh my gosh! Well I'm pretty sure ours were maggots because we keep all the doors shut and now flies keep popping up randomly. It was so gross though and sounds like a similar situation.. I couldn't believe how many they were and how quickly they were moving *vom*! And how exciting about the move. What made you guys decide to move again so soon?
