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.
I’ve had a great week. Me and the child have had so much fun. The building work is coming along. I’ve caught up with friends and generally just had a blast.
Here are my top ten moments from the last week:
1 – We had a well deserved home day on Wednesday. We kicked it off in style by baking chocolate cakes for breakfast. L then took them through to the builders, he was so proud of himself and they were suitably impressed.
2- We had fun making and playing with some slime. It’s always a guaranteed boredom killer, though I’m starting to run out of space for all the slimes L has made!
3 – We headed out into the fields for a walk. It’s my fave thing to do but we hadn;t been once the whole summer so when L asked if we could go I leapt at the chance. We were even kept company by a cat who is not ours!
4 – Thursday saw us hop on a train to Lowestoft. We had a fab day playing on the beach and looking round. L just loves a train ride so he was happy, add in a beach and it was a perfect day for him.
5 – The water fountains in Lowestoft were a massive hit. Thankfully we had a change of clothes for the kid as he didn’t come out until he was soaked through. He loved it though.
6- Friday we caught up with my parents for some lunch, L got the mask in his kids box, then we picked out some new flooring. I can’t believe we’re at that stage already!
7 – We spent a lot of Saturday with the cat who isn’t ours. There was a lot of rain Friday night and the new part of the house was most definitely not watertight so all the windows were open to dry it out a bit. This meant the cat just kept coming in a plinking on whoever would have her!
8 – L went to a birthday party on Sunday. It was amazing. There was a treasure hunt around the playing field to find a selection of different prizes. Then a hunt to find the letters of the birthday boys fave animal followed by a prize. Topped off with a hunt for each kid to find their own personalised painted stone. I mean we may as well all give up now!!
9 – After the birthday party we popped to the local pub with a friend and her son. The boys just played and played whilst we sat in a beer garden, enjoying adult conversation with a nice meal and a drink. It was bloody delightful.
10 – L and I popped to Bressingham Steam Museum and Gardens on Tuesday. We had a great time riding on all the trains and exploring the stunning gardens. It wasn’t planned but the electricians were in a L had declared he would die without TV and after playing in the garden for a while he came in to tell me he was now actually dead because of the lack of TV. So I thought getting out of the house may be beneficial to us all!
I’m really glad I write down a few positives from each day and then go back through them each week. It helps keep me focused, calm and therefore happy. It is also a great way to keep a note of the things we’ve done.
