Feeling Calm #6

For my birthday I was given a great new 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 and on Wednesday’s I go through the daily highlights I’ve written down and pick out my 10 favourites.

This week has been pretty good actually, a lovely weekend away with the other half, enjoying the Festival of Light in Cambridge, finishing off one big project with Hobbycraft and getting started on a second and lots of silly fun with the little one.

Getting the world ready for your new arrival

Dettol have launched a great new campaign #gettheworldready exploring how real mums get prepared for meeting their little ones for the first time, sending them off to nursery or play group for the first time and generally preparing the world around them at every step.

Our Valentine’s Weekend at e-Luminate Cambridge 2016

This weekend I was lucky enough to not only have a child free weekend away with the other half but to have also been invited to e-Luminate Cambridge Festival of Light as a blog ambassador.

The festival started on Friday but we sadly couldn’t make the opening ceremony and it runs until the 17th, so there’s still plenty of time to visit and enjoy the amazing light installations and if you’re lucky book onto one of the fab events. As it’s half term week it would be a fab thing to do with the kids. Continue reading Our Valentine’s Weekend at e-Luminate Cambridge 2016

A Relaxing Spa Day at Clarice House – Bury St Edmunds

A few weekends ago my sister and I went to Clarice House in Bury St Edmunds for a day of relaxation and pampering to celebrate her 30th birthday.

I booked our package through Spa Seekers, which was fine and I got an awesome deal, but what wasn’t mentioned, at any point, was that our package didn’t include robe and towel hire, so whilst I would recommend both Spa Seekers for the deals and Clarice House for the loveliness I will say now you need to make sure that your package includes everything you assume it would.

Our package included an hour long massage, 30 minute facial, 30 minute manicure and 30 minute pedicure, as well as lunch and use fo the facilities. Pure bliss.

Improving My Workspace with Lumie

I love my little workspace at home. It is so important to me getting quiet time to work, being productive and being happy. It’s a work in progress still but I love it. My recent improvement has been with the Lumie Desklamp.

My little workspace is set up in our conservatory, a world of natural light you would have thought, apart from the fact we live in England and it is normally miserable, I do most of my work in the evenings and the lights we have in the conservatory are a bit pants.

So I needed a new desk lamp and having worked with Lumie before, reviewing the wonderful bodyclocks,  they seemed like the perfect partner for me. Continue reading Improving My Workspace with Lumie

We Are Family

I think I may have found the perfect Valentine’s Day gift, or Mother’s Day, or Father’s Day actually.

The We Are Family Journal from Illustries.

It’s a beautiful hardback A4 book, printed in navy and classic brown and filled with page upon page of wonderfully printed ideas and themes to fill out for your family.

I love it for it’s simple and elegant look, it is a perfect ‘coffee table’ book. It is stylish and unlike other memory books I have seen it isn’t overly girly, it is a much for my husband as it is for me, which I really like.

Things My Toddler Says that Make Me Melt

What things do your kids say that just make you melt?

L is at the stage with his learning that new words are coming thick and fast. Sometimes they are very amusing and sometimes he is just so cute it makes me melt inside.

At the moment my favourite words are Apple or ‘papple’ which is just really sweet I also love that he calls any horse or donkey a ‘keekaw’.  If he wants to be picked up he looks and me and says ‘mup’ and cuddles are ‘cuggle’. Aww.

Silly Cuddles

What is not so great but highly amusing/embarrassing depending on the situation are the rude mispronunciations.

 

We currently have an issue with socks and sticks. Hmmmm.

So what words do your kids have it make you melt inside or laugh out loud?

Feeling Calm #5

For my birthday I was given a great new 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 and on Wednesday’s I go through the daily highlights I’ve written down and pick out my 10 favourites. 

Well this last week has been far from calm, it has been busy and angry and sad. It has had me questioning whether I should carry on trying to make my Social Media Business a success or if I should just quit and get a job at Tesco, even questioning whether to carry on blogging or not.

I love my blog, with all my heart, but it takes up so much time and when time is at a premium it can be hard to justify, a blazing row with the other half didn’t help, but actually talking afterwards did.

It has also been a week of increased understanding, new opportunities, fun and giggles. It is these parts that I’m glad I’ve written down so I can gain some perspective, whilst one of my daily highlights may have been ‘getting on top the laundry’ oh the exciting life I lead, strangely that hasn’t made my top 10, but here they are:
