We haven’t had a family holiday in the sun at all since L was born and technically I haven’t had a holiday at all.

Feeling Calm #113

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.

Well I’m home. 7 loads of laundry done and back at work. Our holiday was amazing, we had the best time and for once in my life I actually relaxed!

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

Feeling Calm #112

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.

So it’s quite short this week as I’m actually on holiday at the moment. I hope when this is published I’ll be enjoying a leisurely breakfast before hitting the beach and grabbing a G&T, because drinking before midday is OK if you’re on a beach!

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