Feeling Calm #68

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. 

L and I have just had a nice week. The weather has been fabulous. We’ve been in the garden so much. Just being outdoors is so good for the soul. I don’t think I’ve felt this calm in a long time.

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

This Plus That Equals…. My Perfect Summer

This plus that equals…. my perfect summer

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 what would make my perfect summer, a wish list if you will.

How fabulous has the weather been? Not to be too British about it, but it has been a bit too warm on occasion #melting! It’s certainly got me thinking about those things that go towards making a perfect summer.

This Plus That Equals…. My Social Life

This plus that equals…. my social life

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 my social life.

I was reading a thread on Mumsnet last night where I girl was asking if it was unreasonable of her to be a bit hurt by her friends effectively icing her out. Why? Well because she had a child it seemed. Her social life seemed to be a lot like mine, and her friends, well they aren’t friends at all.

Our Verdant Leisure Holiday at Heather View

We are not long back from the most fabulous holiday with Verdant Leisure. We spent Half Term week in County Durham, at the beautiful Heather View Leisure Park which is only a walk away from the town of Stanhope.

After a long journey the play area was a welcome find

It’s a long old drive from Norfolk to County Durham. Long! L handled it like a trooper though. It’s fair to say when we arrived at Heather View he was eager to get out of the car. Our lodge was quite ready for us when arrived so we took the chance to have a little wander around the site.

In the middle of this heat wave it is nice having a way we can enjoy the summertime indoors, when it has got too hot to play. I’m also happy to have some back up for when it’s raining. The Sylvanian Families Seaside Ice Cream Shop is the perfect way to do that.
