This Plus That Equals…. #8

This plus that equals…. a very happy mummy.

Here’s the latest instalment in my series of posts all about what makes our lives here at home tick. This week I thought I’d share the things that I love.

Sunshine! I love sunny days and being outdoors, even if I’m just sat watching L play, to be fair even being indoors on a sunny day is nice. I just love the brightness.

Stationery. Notepads, washi tape, pens, stickers, erasers, if it’s cute, different, useful or pretty I’m all in. I have a stash that will never be used, there’s just too much, but it makes me very happy and I’m always adding to it.

Cycling. I’m not great at it, I have a lovely bike with a basket and a bell and comfy seat, it’s all I wanted. But I enjoy getting out in the fresh air and seeing my little pocket of countryside from a different perspective. L loves it too, even he sometimes falls asleep.

The beach. I’m lucky that the Norfolk coastline is stunning and close. I feel a sense of calm when I walking along with the fresh sea air, plus there is more often than not a great pub lunch or fish and chips to look forward to as well.

Holidays. Well don’t we all, but I love the break from the norm and the family time with no distractions, going somewhere new, seeing new things and making new memories. I’m sometimes sad that we’ve had all these fab holidays since L was born that he just won’t remember, but hopefully we’ll have many more in the future that he will remember.

  1. Ooooooh this is a great post! It’s like an about me or liebster post but I think a bit more insightful as it shows what makes you tick. I love your desk… I must say I think we’re quite similar – I have so much craft stuff it’s daunting thinking where to unpack it to!!
