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.

So here are my top ten moments from the last 7 days:

Here’s the latest instalment in my series of posts all about what makes our lives here at home tick. This week is all about what’s in my bag. I’ve actually managed to make the switch to an actual adult bag. Still a rucksack, but a nice one. I don’t miss those changing bag days at all!

To My Son on Your Fourth Birthday

Oh my word tomorrow is your birthday and you will be four years old and I literally don’t know where the time has gone. It honestly seems like 5 minutes ago I was writing something very similar for your third birthday and trying to cling to you being a toddler.
