Feeling Calm #56

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. 

These last 7 days have been engulfed with illness. I’m still not at my finest but everyone else seems back to normal. Thanks to a vile sickness bug L bought home from Nursery I don’t think I’ve had a full night sleep since last Wednesday!

There aren’t many pictures from these last few days, and nothing much exciting has happened but regardless here are my top ten moments from the last 7 days:

This Plus That Equals…. Little Things I’ve Found

This plus that equals…. little things I’ve found

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 those little products you find that are just amazing. Ones you start to wonder how you ever got by before them.

Last week I was asked to review Biotrue® Daily Eyelid Wipes from Bausch + Lomb, they had teamed up with TheraPearl who make the Eye-ssential Mask for the ultimate in eye care treats. Well I’ve been using the Eye-ssential Mask for a good couple of years now and that got me to thinking about all those little products I’ve found through blogging that I now use all the time.

Pushing Through It

I have literally lost track of how many times I have said ‘I just push through it’ this week. Don’t worry, I’ll push through it. It’s OK, I can push through it. Well you know, you just push through it. Again, and again and again.

As a parent I think that’s just what you do. As a working parent I have to. as a working parent who is also working very hard to not be a working parent I have to push through it even more!
