So in under a year I am going to be a bridesmaid for my little sister. This is just the kind of goal I need to diet, focus on my weight loss and getting healthier, which all ties in nicely with my quest to be a calmer, happier and healthier person.
I have decided to vlog about my journey as that will give me a visual reminder of where I’ve been and where I am and as it’s something that makes me rather uncomfortable it will also help to keep me in check. Plus it’s always good to push yourself.
For my birthday I was given a great new book ‘Calm’ and a journal from my friends. To help me find some calm in my life and to de-stress a little. I have been writing in my journal everyday and on Wednesday’s I go through the daily highlights I’ve written down and pick out my 10 favourites.
You may have guessed from my posts this week I have really started to feel the strain of being self employed with no clients. That’s not to say we haven’t had fun though. I just reminding of it a bit more than usual, so I can’t tell you how much I’ve been looking forward to writing this.
Here’s the latest instalment in my series of posts all about what makes our lives here at home tick. This week is all about me and how I’m feeling. Fairly rubbish as you may have guessed from the title. Now I’m not after a load of sympathy, I just need to write about why I feel like a failure, get it off my chest and then hopefully start to feel a bit better.
This week it was my bestest friend’s birthday and the week before it was her daughter’s, so what better thing to do than to throw them a mini birthday party. Thank to The Great Little Party Company that was easy.
Hopefully you saw the Animal Jam Twitter Party I helped host a few weeks back, well since then L has been sent a bundle of the toys to play with and guess what? He loves them! He’s always asking to play with his nanimals.
In case you don’t know much about Animal Jam, I certainly didn’t until recently. It’s an online game for kids that has been made with National Geographic. You get to collect animals, decorate their houses, change how they appear, play games and find out loads about the Animal Kingdom. Continue reading Animal Jam Fun→
With all this hot weather we haven’t been able to pack enough drinks for L, so when we were sent some samples of Nurture Fruity Water+ the timing couldn’t have been better.
They come in non spill pouches that can just be chucked in the bottom of our day bag. Now L hated the pouches and found them really difficult to drink from but I loved them as it meant he could have them in the back of the car and I didn’t have to worry. What we ended up doing though was taking a bottle of drink and then when he had finished it, transferring a pouch of the Nurture Fruity Water+ into his empty bottle.
