Feeling Calm #153

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.

Today has not been a good day, but today also isn’t part of the last 7 days, which were, on the whole pretty good. I need to concentrate on some self care a bit more, but otherwise it’s been a lovely week.

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

This plus that equals…. comfort

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 things that bring me comfort.

Cosy Toes with Baabuk

Baabuk make beautiful wool slippers, boots and sneakers that not only look great but are functional too. I have been sent a pair of their Yves slippers and I am so impressed.

A Zuru Party Bag

Is it only me or has party season really kicked off? With a party next week and two in April the kid has a better social life than I do. Trouble is, gifts! What do you get? He has only been at school since September, one of these kids I don’t know at all, one I know the mum but have no idea what the girl likes and the third I think I have an idea but I’m honestly far from sure.

Enter Zuru, with a great range of toys they are well and truly to the rescue.

Feeling Calm #152

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.

It’s been a nice quiet, calm week. Just what I needed. I grabbed some extra hours at work and just chilled and relaxed with the kid. It’s been lovely.

Here are my top ten moments from the last 14 days:
