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 stress. As I alluded to earlier in the week I have been struggling a bit recently and though better in myself I am still feeling a lot of stress when perhaps I shouldn’t be.
I do enjoy the chance to craft and I also love the surprise offered by a subscription box. Not knowing what you’ll get, the fun of unwrapping it, then a little project to complete. So exciting. That is exactly what you get with Makerly.
You may, or may not, have noticed that last week I near dropped of the face of this digital space I live in. No blogs posts, no Instagram, no chatting on Twitter. Radio Silence.
I know I don’t have to explain myself, or justify anything, well I had to explain to a couple of PRs why posts hadn’t gone out, but other than that I don’t really answer to anyone other than myself. But the thing is, I did disappear and I feel it’s important I explain why.
It is no secret I love a good subscription box. Happiness delivered to your door and there are so many types to choose from now, so there is no shortage of surprise packages to enjoy. I was recently sent a subscription box to The Hot Choc Club from uOpen.com to try out.
uOpen.com have a huge array subscription clubs you can choose from, crafts, food, drink, beauty, books, music. You name it, you can subscribe to it.
Over the weekend we headed to Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure Park for some family fun. It’s nice and close to us and we try to visit at least once a year, so on a cold and blustery Saturday, after two days cooped up n the house feeling unwell, it was the perfect destination.
When it comes to days out with the kids in Norfolk Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure Park is a classic, it is jam packed full of things to do for all ages and all weathers. It’s also changing and growing which is lovely to see. I used to visit as a child when we stayed with family in Norfolk over our Summer Holidays and it is lovely to take L now and see some of the same dinosaurs I used to love whilst enjoying all the lovely new facilities. It will always have a soft spot in my heart and I feel I need to disclose that more than the fact we were gifted our tickets at the weekend!
Deep in the heart of Mossycup Wood lies Poggle Hollow, a secret place not many people know about and those who do keep it very hush hush. Living in this very secret place are the Pogglewitt: a tiny, friendly fun-loving folk who grow their nests on the highest branches of the oldest trees.
For my birthday a couple of years ago 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.
This has been a funny old week. Some real highs and a few lows. I’m so physically tired I’ve made myself ill, so I enforced a day of rest upon myself and feel a million times better, just stressed about the growing to do list. It’s hard to find a balance between being happy that I’m on top of things without making myself ill because I’m exhausted.
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 Gin Night. This hallowed occasion is something I look forward to immensely and doesn’t happen as frequently as I’d wish.
