March Love List: Everything I’ve Gotten Up To This Month

March has positively flown by with a flurry of water and a buttload of stress. TBH I haven’t been updating anything here lately, because I feel like I’ve lost my mojo a little.  While I blog about life, the universe and everything in between, my universe has filtered down to three people – M, Bear and me – so it hasn’t felt too interesting. As regular readers will know, Bear suffers from complex febrile seizures so when he’s sick (as he has been pretty much all month), the whole household treats him like a ticking time bomb that could go off at any moment. We don’t want to make plans or really do much of anything, just in case we have to drop everything for a hospital stay.   Thankfully, our watchfulness was all for naught – he had multiple fevers through the month but didn’t seize once – huzzah!!! So while we’re on the subject of gratitude, let’s check out the March Love List and see just what I did end up getting up to.


Milestoning First Family Movie Trip

A post shared by Tory (@mintedrogue) on

Bear has been obsessively watching every Lego Batman clip released for months, so when we saw the Cinebuzz Crew Advance Screening, I knew it would be a perfect first cinema experience for our little family. Bear comported himself fabulously, and all we’ve heard since are requests to go back and see it again. A definite winner.


Pondering Strange Posters

I’ve seen these posters all over Fortitude Valley for a few weeks now and I have no idea what they mean. They are even beyond my Google Fu. If someone knows can you put me out of my misery please?


Eyeing Off Giant Bunnies

Could legit eat this entire thing any day of the week. God how I wish it were real.


Making  Microwave Apple Pie Porridge

I’ve been making this recipe for Bear ever since he was born and it’s an absolute winner. Sweet and cinnamony – it tastes exactly like an apple pie in your mouth, and with the addition of Organix fruit purees it’s an absolute snap to make.


Reading The Little Red Chairs

This book was absolutely fascinating.  The whole concept of how well do you know the people you love has always captivated me. The basic plot is that a healer comes to a small Irish village, and a woman falls in love with him. She is then ostracized from the community when he turns out to be a notorious Balkans war criminal. It follows her through the initial love affair to her closure during his trial. Truly an incredible read.


Watching Logan

A post shared by Tory (@mintedrogue) on

I’m not gonna lie, the husband has been looking forward to an R Rated Wolverine movie for I don’t know how long. He is a Wolvie fan from waaaay back, so the expectation level was very high. I’m not sure it could have ever lived up to it, but I detailed just how close I think it came in my review.


Giggling At Daddy Making Dinner

I’m not sure there’s much I can say on this one – we both thought it was hysterical. We might be spending too much time around children 😛

  1. Aww. I hope things get better soon Tory. That’s why I was wondering where you’ve gone. I used to see a lot of posts from you then recently it seems I don’t find you on my feed. You’ll be in my thoughts and prayers and remember to take care of yourself too. xx


  2. Gosh it must be pretty stressful being on seizure watch. My teen GD has epilepsy and even on meds is not always controlled. Her mum is calm. Unlike how I would be. Great to see you back blogging! Thank you for linking up for #lifethisweek 14/52. Next week: Easter

    1. It’s amazing what your mind can get used to. I always thought I would freak out about my child having something like a seizure, but I always seem to be calm at the time. I do tend to fall apart afterwards though, once we’re in the hospital and he’s out of the danger zone.

  3. Well, quite a month! I’m glad to hear the seizure watch didn’t come to anything this month. That sounds incredibly stressful. I love these little observations. I start a new job in Newstead tomorrow so I’ll be keeping an eye out for these posters! I love street art and quirky posters – and you’re right, it’s the best part of Brisbane for that.

  4. Poor little Bear! You must have been on edge the whole time, I’m glad there were no seizures though. Here’s hoping for a better April! xx

  5. My hubby saw Logan but I missed out as I was watching The Boss Baby with our son at the same time (so that hubby could see Logan, as my Dad was unable to babysit). Hope things get less stressful for your family 🙂
