This Plus That Equals…. A New Year

This plus that equals…. a new year

Here’s the latest instalment in my series of posts all about what makes our lives here at home tick. 2017 is here, I can barely believe it, I swear I only blinked and a year just disappeared. I’m not really one for a New Year’s resolution, though I can see why so many people are, nothing like a new year for a fresh start. I just don’t tend to be that organised. I do, however, have a few hopes and dreams for the coming year.

This Plus That Equals…. Christmas

This plus that equals…. Christmas

Here’s the latest instalment in my series of posts all about what makes our lives here at home tick. We’re midway through December and it’s nearly Christmas. Christmas is and always has been my favourite time of year. I throw myself into it whole heartedly and now I’ve got L to share it with I’m just even more excited. I’ve already shared my Christmas wishes, but here is a little bit about how I like to prepare for the big day.

This Plus That Equals…. Changing Dynamics

This plus that equals…. changing dynamics

Here’s the latest instalment in my series of posts all about what makes our lives here at home tick. As you all know I recently started a new job, so I’ve been out of the house a lot more, it’s really changing things at home. It’s the changing dynamics at home that I am struggling with most of all. Just little things I’ve noticed. Normal or inconsequential to many, but new and a bit upsetting for me.

This plus that equals…. my return to the workplace

Here’s the latest instalment in my series of posts all about what makes our lives here at home tick. The last few weeks I’ve been really busy, kind of stressed out and getting used to how things are now. Going back to work has been a real change for me and I thought you’d like an update on how I’ve found it.

This Plus That Equals…. What I Want for Christmas

This plus that equals…. what I want for Christmas

Here’s the latest instalment in my series of posts all about what makes our lives here at home tick. The last few weeks I’ve been writing up my Christmas Gift Guides, 2 have gone live and 2 are scheduled. They are packed full of things that I would love, otherwise I wouldn’t feature them but it did get me thinking about what I want for Christmas outside of gifts. So here they are.

This plus that equals…. potty training dilemmas

Here’s the latest instalment in my series of posts all about what makes our lives here at home tick. The time has finally come in our house for potty training and we are in full flow.

This Plus That Equals…. Why I Hate Forced Positivity

This plus that equals…. Why I hate forced positivity

Here’s the latest instalment in my series of posts all about what makes our lives here at home tick. This week is a bit of a rant about why I hate forced positivity. You all know I’m a super positive person but I hate it when people try to force me to be positive about something when I just am not.

As you know I’ve had to put a pause on my on my stay at home dream and get a job. I am not feeling great about this because it is not what I want. It is not a great and amazing job. Frankly it is not a positive thing, not for me anyhow. It will pay the bills though and it’s not too many hours, those are quite simply th only positives I can find. So I wish people would stop trying to find all these other ‘positives’ and forcing me to agree.

This Plus That Equals…. My Favourite Norfolk Walks

This plus that equals…. My Favourite Norfolk Walks

Here’s the latest instalment in my series of posts all about what makes our lives here at home tick. This week is a list of my favourite walks in Norfolk. We’re off to Lincoln for a long weekend, when husb asked what I wanted to do, I literally had no clue other than to get out for some good, long, at a decent pace, walks. It can be hard to do with a toddler sometimes.

So I’d been looking for some walking inspiration in and around Lincoln and it got me thinking of my favourite places to walk at home in sunny Norfolk, especially now we have L.
