Feeling Calm #13

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 is me at the weekend, my before picture, lets hope
This is me! 

For me this week has been a bit of a mixed bag, on one hand I’m feeling great having lost some weight and taking positive steps to getting a bit more active and healthier, on the other I’ve been feeling quite anxious and stressed about work with new jobs coming in and concerns about existing ones it’s left me feeling unsettled and out of balance. It has been really therapeutic to pick my 10 moments from this week.

Here are my top ten moments from the last 7 days: Continue reading Feeling Calm #13

March Crafts

I love to craft, really love it, but like many of my hobbies it has been put on the back burner since becoming a mum. Just like reading, looking presentable and using the bathroom by myself.

I’m lucky enough that I get to work with Baker Ross regularly so I’m never out of fun crafts to do with the boy and I also make things for the Hobbycraft blog quite often, every now and then I get asked to things for other companies as well. I relish these opportunities as it means I get to do something I love, but it’s never just for me, which I miss.  Continue reading March Crafts

This week has been amazing, we went away for Easter and had a fab time, the little one loved it and was on his best behaviour and there was chocolate!! Maybe a couple of bottles of vino as well. It has been genuinely hard to only pick 10 moments from this week.

There was a chance he thought this machine produced Easter eggs

This week has been far better than last week, I have started working on myself a bit more, making time to meditate and to exercise and I’m looking forward to a weekend away so that helps, even if the evil that is Easter advertising has turned my child into an egg demanding monster!

Here are my top ten moments from the last 7 days: Continue reading Feeling Calm #11

Feeling Calm #9

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 all about illness, ugh! I dropped a perfectly healthy child off at nursery on Friday to get the dreaded ‘he’s got a temperature’ call a few hours later. He made it through the day at nursery quite nicely, saving the fevers, coughs, vomiting and general illness for us over the weekend. Yeah, Mother’s Day was a blast I’m lying. Then just as I thought he was getting better my sinuses tried to make my head explode and he went straight back to being ill again.

The joy of working from home means I don’t have to worry about him not being able to go to nursery and rush around sorting out babysitters and such forth, it just means I’m really behind where I should be this week. Hopefully he’ll be back to normal soon.

So here are my top ten moments from the last 7 days: Continue reading Feeling Calm #9

This week has been fairly boring, thankfully! There have been some lovely moments, some toddler tantrum not so lovely moments and some fairly mundane moments. It’s actually been quite normal and peaceful which is always nice.

Articulate – Review and Competition

We might be a bit behind the times but we have only just found Articulate! from Drumond Park. Of course I had heard of it but we had never played it so I was very excited to get the chance to review it, I’m just as excited to have a copy to give away to one lucky reader.

The husband and I enjoy a good board game, we really do, it’s something a bit different to do of an evening. It means the TV and tech is put to one side for a bit, it means we converse, often laugh, sometimes bicker and generally have fun. Continue reading Articulate – Review and Competition
