Feeling Calm #84

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.

This weekend L had his fourth birthday party the first one he has had with all of his friends. It was lovely and he had so much fun. I even found the time, somehow, to bake his cake.

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

Shopping with boohooMAN

OK I’m going to be honest with you. I hate shopping. Hate it. I gain no pleasure from it but at least get new clothes at the end, when it comes to shopping for husb, not only is he a fussy bugger but I don’t get any new clothes, just stress. So I love to shop online and was very happy to give boohooMAN a try.  Continue reading Shopping with boohooMAN

My Night at McDonald’s

I’ve never been one to shy away from taking L to McDonald’s. If we’re travelling it’s perfect and he loves it as a special treat. There’s one everywhere you go, you know what to expect and it’s always great value. I was really excited to be invited along to a blogger event at the McDonalds by Norwich Airport.
