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.
We were in Devon all of last week, so I didn’t write my top ten last Wednesday. I’ve been toying with a catch up top 20 this week, just missing a week or doing a top ten from the last 14 days and that is what I have opted for.
It’s been a busy couple of weeks, going away takes up so much time, getting work done before hand, being shattered afterwards. Dealing with everything whilst you are away but without the home comforts. It can be draining but ultimately, we had fun and it was worth it, although there were times during the holiday I may not have said that!
Here are my top 10 moments from the past 14 days;
- My husband cooked tea! A miracle. Only beans on toast but still I didn’t have to cook it.
- Visiting National Trust Knightshayes, I’m not sure I’ve been to a house with formal gardens that are so whimsical. I loved it, truly beautiful and such lovely weather.
- A five hour car journey home, normally my idea of hell, especially as L steadfastly refused to nap. But he was so much fun, the whole journey. We chatted and played silly games and had a real giggle. He was calm, I was calm, it was good. My neck and back will never be the same again, and I’m pretty certain he’s still full up from the constant stream of snacks he demanded but it was lovely for something that should have been so boring to turn into an actual highlight.
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 and happy and is a great way to keep a note of the things we’ve done.
