Feeling Calm #61

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 hs been one busy week! Husb has been busy, I have been busy, even little L has been busy. Having the Bank Holiday was a nice treat though.

Whilst we have been doing some lovely things I am hoping this week and next are a bit calmer.

Feeling Calm
Just too busy for the little man!

So without further ado here are my top ten moments from the last 7 days:

Feeling Calm #60

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. 

So for like the first time ever I have written up all my reviews bar one that, due to it being a mattress, needs me to use it for a while first. I know it won’t last for long as I’ve got some exciting stuff lined up but it’s a good feeling.

We also found time for ourselves this weekend, which was very much needed.

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

National Stationery Week with Stabilo

As you may or may not know, next week is National Stationery Week. The guys over at Stabilo believe that stationery matters and so do I. They aren’t just making functional and practical items, it’s so much more than that.

To me stationery is a bit of an obsession. I love it. As well as needing it for everyday and mundane tasks, I need it for my own peace of mind. To find my inner calm and sanity. My stationery says so much about me and I belive that if you can have a better, more fun, prettier item then why would you not use it.

Feeling Calm #59

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. 

So last week I mentioned I was feeling stressed due to some changes at work and feeling bogged down with blog work. Well as I wrote I thought to myself that I could completely fix it. So I did.

I got my bum out of bed ridiculously early one morning and blogged my little heart out. Bam, one problem solved.

As for work, well, I’ve done what I do best. I’ve gone in with a smile on my face and a determination that regardless of the attitude of those around me I will be positive. That, coupled with a good bitch about my day to husb and a gin when I get home, means I’m doing OK.

So here are my top ten moments from the last 7 days, they’ve been good:

Feeling Calm #58

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. 

More amazing weather, bank holidays on the horizon and a clean house. It should all be good but a change at work has left me feeling uneasy and an ever growing pile of things to blog about is adding to my stress levels.

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

Feeling Calm #57

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. 

Hasn’t the weather been amazing?! We’ve been enjoying a lot of outdoors time and doesn’t it make a difference. Garden play is always an easy option for me, but when you don’t even have to worry about warmth and can literally just open the door and shove the child outside it’s even better.

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

Feeling Calm #55

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:

This Plus That Equals…. Little Smiles

This plus that equals…. little smiles

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 that make me smile.

I was chatting to my husband this morning about the beautiful sunny weather and that even though it was going to be cold today, it didn’t matter. Sun just makes  things better and that got me to thinking about other little things that just make me happy and smile.

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.

Wow, we are all tired in this house at the moment. Husb’s new job is really taking it out of him. L has had a few unsettled nights, early starts and a complete refusal to nap, so he’s a delight. I simply don’t know what’s wrong with me, I feel drained and have literally been falling asleep on the sofa during the day.

There has been a lot going on recently, but honestly I shouldn’t be this tired!

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