When it comes to travelling the world with a toddler, jet-setting and jet-lag go hand in hand.
We are finally starting to feel a little normal again, having returned home to Abu Dhabi a week ago after 5 weeks in Australia.
We were lucky enough to have Pete with us for the first two weeks, but then the final three weeks of our adventures were just Maddie, the bump, and I. And boy did we cover some ground! We went to Brisbane, Byron Bay, Stanthorpe, Kingscliff, Melbourne, Canberra, Bowral and even had lunch at Bondi Beach in Sydney on our way out! All this while still managing morning sickness and a pretty awful cycle of thrice-weekly migraines.
To say I returned home to Pete a tired Mama is beyond an understatement of gargantuan proportions.
And so I was very excited at the prospect of handing over parenting for a few days, however, at 4am the first morning back, we awoke to a VERY lively Madeleine. The dreaded jet lag had set in.
Thankfully, the usual 5 days of jet lag passed in three, but the easy days were quick lived, as we farewelled Pete back to Australia on Sunday.
But the one good thing about being sans-Pete (and believe me, there's only one thing I remotely enjoy about having him abroad) is that I have the evenings to myself. Which means, I can re-enter the blogosphere and catch up on the many months that I am behind.
I have so many posts I have been wanting to write, so apologies in advance for having been silent for months and then for bombarding you with a million posts in a week! I'm really excited about getting back into the swing of things again though, I've really missed all things meg-made.
