Feeling Calm #51

For my birthday last year I was given a great 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 since and on Wednesday’s (or late on a Tuesday) I go through the daily highlights I’ve written down and pick out my 10 favourites. 

After a long weekend hen party-ing I am knackered but a bit of a break has been helpful and whilst I may be very busy now I do at least feel a bit more motivated.

I’m hoping that things will calm down a bit and I can centre myself once again and fall back into a good routine.

Here are my top ten moments from the last 7 days:

This Plus That Equals…. My Top Tired Games

This plus that equals…. my top tired games

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 the ways I keep L entertained when I am beyond tired and don’t really have the energy to parent. These are also good when you’re ill.

Having spent all weekend at my sister’s hen party I needed all of these today as at points I literally couldn’t keep my eyes open.

Feeling Calm #50

For my birthday last year I was given a great 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 since and on Wednesday’s (or late on a Tuesday) I go through the daily highlights I’ve written down and pick out my 10 favourites. 

My winning streak has come to an end. I have been feeling tired and stressed and struggled to find any motivation this last week. A long way from calm if I’m honest.

Things have gotten on top of me a bit and I’m desperate to get that winning feeling back. The previous few weeks I had been so organised and positive. I know exactly what has changed, well built up, but it’s hard to counteract it as it’s not something I can directly change.

Regardless, here are my top ten moments from the last 7 days:

Feeling Calm #49

For my birthday last year I was given a great 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 since and on Wednesday’s (or late on a Tuesday) I go through the daily highlights I’ve written down and pick out my 10 favourites. 

I’m still feeling good, long may this last. I’m feeling healthier, almost fully recovered. Have found to look after myself a little better and am generally enjoying life.

Using my diary to block out time for tasks and not taking on too much is really helping. Getting three days worth of training dropped on me at short notice hasn’t helped, especially as it is sinfully boring, but still by blocking out my time I am managing.

So here they are, my top ten moments from the last 7 days:

This Plus That Equals… Funny Things My Toddler Says

This plus that equals…. funny things my toddler says

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 the funny little things L has come out with recently. I’ve noted down some of his little sayings before, it deserved updating though.

Paw Patrol Ilumi-Mates

L loves Paw Patrol. If allowed he watch it from the moment he wakes to the moment he fell asleep. He often enjoys running around the house pretending to be on various rescue missions with the pups, it’s all very cute.

When he was offered the chance to review some of the colour change Paw Patrol Illumi-Mates from Spearmark I just had to say yes. It was clear he would just adore them.  Continue reading Paw Patrol Ilumi-Mates

Fearne Fairy and the Landing Lesson – Book Review

L and I love the Whimsy Wood books by Sarah Hill. Simple stories about Pixies and Fairies and most of all nature.

Fearne Fairy and the Chocolate Caterpillar is no exception. It is brilliant. The perfect length bedtime book. Lots of amazing illustrations.
