Feeling Calm #76

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 have the worst headache and I’m struggling to function let alone keep up. It hasn’t stopped me having some good times though.

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

This plus that equals…. getting more sleep

Our Visit to Castle Acre

Earlier in the year I treated us to English Heritage membership. To be fair it was a no brainer. Membership for two adults, with L free, is £30 in Tesco Clubcard Vouchers. So it was next to no money. L loves castles, English Heritage have a lot. It’s free days out for a year.

I’m going to try to write about all the properties we visit using our membership. What I liked, didn’t like, share some pictures. We’ve already made our money back on the membership, so I am very happy it is good value for money.

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 funny old week. On one hand I’ve been really busy but on the other I can’t think of anything specific I’ve actually done!

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

Peppa Pig’s Family Home – Review

When we got asked to review the new Peppa Pig’s Family Home set I straight away said yes. L loves Peppa and has recently really got into games where he gets to be the character and play out little scenarios with his toys.

Feeling Calm #74

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 nice and quiet, well as quiet as things get for us! Just blogging, working, playing with the boy. The flip side to not being that busy on the plans front, means I’ve thrown myself into the work side of things. So I’m just as exhausted as ever.

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

This Plus That Equals…. Why Quick Parenting Isn’t Lazy Parenting

This plus that equals…. why quick parenting isn’t lazy parenting

Here’s the latest instalment in my series of posts all about what makes our lives here at home tick. This week is a little rant from me. A rant about why taking parenting shortcuts is not lazy parenting.

Now there are several press outlets who would have us believe feeding our kids fish fingers for tea is a sign of our sheer and utter laziness of parents and we must all be ashamed of ourselves. Pah. Here’s why they are wrong.
