Feeling Calm #80

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.

This week I went to The Handmade Fair which was fun. It’s been pretty busy but I’ll be honest I’m struggling a little bit at the moment. So here are my top ten moments from the last 7 days: Continue reading Feeling Calm #80

This Plus That Equals…. Finding Things Difficult

This plus that equals…. finding things difficult

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 how I’m feeling at the moment. I’m a bit low and struggling if I’m honest. I’m finding everything difficult.

Gruffalo Spotting

Like most children of his age L is a big fan of the Gruffalo. In fact it’s not just him, we’re a family of Gruffalo admirers. It’s one of my favourite books to read to him. So when we were asked to try out Magic Light Pictures ‘The Gruffalo Spotter’ app, we straight away said yes. I’m always up for a bit of Gruffalo Spotting.

Feeling Calm #79

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.

A big chunk of the last 7 days has been blighted by the worst sinus infection. Headaches. Nausea. No sleep. It’s been delightful! I’ve still had to parent and work, though I let a few blog things slide to give myself a break. As honestly, when given the option to sleep or write, I was always going to choose sleep.

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

This Plus That Equals…. Pushing Buttons

This plus that equals…. pushing buttons

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 how no one is as good at pushing buttons as L. He has been the cutest kid in the world followed by the absolute worst. I don’t think I have ever felt a rage like it. I reckon it’s pretty much the same for every parent out there.

Feeling Calm #77

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.

It’s been a busy few days and I’ve felt really under pressure. We’ve also in the middle of a few days off. Which whilst lovely doesn’t actually detract from the pressure. So I’m trying really hard to take a step back and enjoy myself a bit.

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