Now there are several press outlets who would have us believe feeding our kids fish fingers for tea is a sign of our sheer and utter laziness of parents and we must all be ashamed of ourselves. Pah. Here’s why they are wrong.

This Plus That Equals…. Cheering Myself Up

This plus that equals…. cheering myself up

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 the little things I do to cheer myself up.

I’ve been a little overwhelmed of late, spreading myself too thinly, taking on too much. The cat is ill, L hasn’t been sleeping well, I am stressed, husb is stressed and it’s taken its toll. So I thought I’d share the little everyday things that have been cheering me up.

Here’s the latest instalment in my series of posts all about what makes our lives here at home tick. As you all know I recently started a new job, so I’ve been out of the house a lot more, it’s really changing things at home.

This Plus That Equals…. Why I Hate Forced Positivity

This plus that equals…. Why I hate forced positivity

Here’s the latest instalment in my series of posts all about what makes our lives here at home tick. This week is a bit of a rant about why I hate forced positivity. You all know I’m a super positive person but I hate it when people try to force me to be positive about something when I just am not.

As you know I’ve had to put a pause on my on my stay at home dream and get a job. I am not feeling great about this because it is not what I want. It is not a great and amazing job. Frankly it is not a positive thing, not for me anyhow. It will pay the bills though and it’s not too many hours, those are quite simply th only positives I can find. So I wish people would stop trying to find all these other ‘positives’ and forcing me to agree.
