Project Bridesmaid #8

So in about a year I am going to be a bridesmaid for my little sister. This is just the kind of goal I need to diet, start losing some weight and getting healthier, which all ties in nicely with my quest to be a calmer, happier and healthier person.

I have decided to vlog about my journey as that will give me a visual reminder of where I’ve been and where I am and as it’s something that makes me rather uncomfortable it will also help to keep me in check. Plus it’s always good to push yourself.

During my journey I will be getting to try all kinds of new products and sharing my experiences of them with you. Continue reading Project Bridesmaid #8

Feeling Calm #18

For my birthday I was given a great new 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 and on Wednesday’s I go through the daily highlights I’ve written down and pick out my 10 favourites. 

Oh my word wasn’t the weather over the weekend AMAZING, if anything was going leave me calm and happy it was a hot weekend filled with splashy paddling pool fun, a few ciders and a BBQ at my sister’s. I’m slightly concerned that we’ve used up all the good weather though, we’re off to Devon at the weekend and last year we got the worst weather, this year I would at least like it to be dry.

Things to Know about Working From Home #5

Having Your Own Workspace

When I started blogging two years ago the aim was to help me find a way, any way, to stay at home. I tried a few different things, took a few courses and found myself working as a Social Media Manager. I was able to leave my admin job and am now officially self employed. I thought I would start sharing some of the things I have learnt along the way.

I have spent enough time working from the sofa on my laptop, it has it’s benefits that’s for sure, but I have found it increasingly more and more important to have my own workspace and here’s why.

As you know we have enjoyed holidays with Herbert Woods, used the boats, relaxed in a cottage and explored the Broads with them, so I’m very excited to tell you about their birthday plans and hopefully we’ll see you there.

Herbert Woods, who trained as an apprentice boat builder in Potter Heigham in 1907, was one of the first pioneers of Broads Tourism and now the company, which he formed in 1926 and is still going strong today, celebrates its 90th birthday this year with a grand Regatta being planned on Sunday 10th July 2016.

Feeling Calm #17

For my birthday I was given a great new 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 and on Wednesday’s I go through the daily highlights I’ve written down and pick out my 10 favourites. 

I’ve had a pretty good week this week. I hand fed an actual Lemur, doesn’t get much better than that but to balance things out I’ve been up half the night with the little one and now I’ve got a stomach bug, can’t have it all!!

I’m feeling rather sorry for myself as I type, husb being particularly thoughtless this morning, was just annoyed about how me being ill has impacted on him, he had to half dress the child, take him to nursery and that meant he couldn’t cycle to work, oh what a shame, I spent most of last night hugging a bucket, boo hoo! So not only do I feel better for my mini rant it’s also been lovely to write about lovely things I’ve done this last week. Here are my top 10 moments from the past 7 days;
