Feeling Calm #55

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 has been the busiest week ever. To be honest I’m glad to see the back of it. Poor L didn’t stop all last week and so this week he is a horror. Husb and I are tired and bickering. Time for some normality to return I think.

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

Feeling Calm #54

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 back on top of things this week. I’ve got this. I’m making housework look easy, I’m on top of my blogging schedule, even getting my hours in at work and generally just rocking it at the moment.

Flowers
This week’s flowers, I’ve been treating myself to a bunch just becuase

I completely do not expect this to last but I’m going to soak up the good feelings whilst I can.

This Plus That Equals…. What I Should Do With a Morning Off

This plus that equals…. what I should do with a morning off

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 a few things I think I should work on. Like Spending time on myself.

Recently I’ve been lucky enough to have a couple of child free, work free mornings. So I did all the housework, made phone calls, sorted out the shopping and generally worked until I was exhausted. I think I should have played it differently.

Feeling Calm #53

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 has been a bit of a mixed bag. I’m still utterly exhausted but I seem to be getting into a bit of a rhythm and dare I say it, things are weirdly easier with husb’s longer hours.  I can just get on with things without interruption, well I have constant toddler interruption but you know what I mean. I’m starting to feel like I can get a half decent routine sorted for us.

This is how I’m feeling right now

Being a Mum has Changed Me

I don’t know what got me thinking about it, but the last days or so I’ve really been thinking about how much I have changed since becoming a mum. Obviously parenthood is life changing, I didn’t expect it not to be. Now three years in there are days I think I’ve got this parenting thing sorted, mostly I don’t, but that’s life.

The Hen Party

How time flies. This time two weeks ago I was getting ready for my sisters hen party and in another two weeks she will be getting married. It has come round in the blink of an eye.

Thanks to the hard work of a lot of people the hen party was brilliant and as I never do this kind of thing I thought I would tell you all about it.

Basic Car Care with a Little Toddler Help

Not one of my favourite jobs, not at all, but especially this time of year it is essential. Making sure my car is clean and safe. Living in a rural area like I do my car gets muddy quickly, and if you can’t see your number plate you could be getting a ticket. Not great. Simple car care really is essential.
