Barracudas Activity Day Camps

So we’re half way through the February Half Term and if you are anything like me managing a week off work is doable but the thought of the two week Easter Break and the Summer holidays on top of a job is worrisome to say the least.

This year I’m working as a Brand Ambassador for Barracudas and I couldn’t be happier to share it with you all.

Arranging some holiday fun for L will be well worth it

Feeling Calm #150

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 still haven’t got that balance quite right at the moment, things are improving but life can be a struggle at times! I didn’t even do my round up last week, so it’s good to be back. At least it’s half term and I’ve got my kid back for a few days of fun.

Here are my top ten moments from the last 14 days:

This Plus That Equals…. Stress

This plus that equals…. Stress

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 stress. As I alluded to earlier in the week I have been struggling a bit recently and though better in myself I am still feeling a lot of stress when perhaps I shouldn’t be.

Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure Park

Over the weekend we headed to Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure Park for some family fun. It’s nice and close to us and we try to visit at least once a year, so on a cold and blustery Saturday, after two days cooped up n the house feeling unwell, it was the perfect destination.

Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure

When it comes to days out with the kids in Norfolk Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure Park is a classic, it is jam packed full of things to do for all ages and all weathers. It’s also changing and growing which is lovely to see. I used to visit as a child when we stayed with family in Norfolk over our Summer Holidays and it is lovely to take L now and see some of the same dinosaurs I used to love whilst enjoying all the lovely new facilities. It will always have a soft spot in my heart and I feel I need to disclose that more than the fact we were gifted our tickets at the weekend!

Feeling Calm #149

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.

This has been a funny old week. Some real highs and a few lows. I’m so physically tired I’ve made myself ill, so I enforced a day of rest upon myself and feel a million times better, just stressed about the growing to do list. It’s hard to find a balance between being happy that I’m on top of things without making myself ill because I’m exhausted.

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

Feeling Calm #148

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.

Ok, so clearly last week I was feeling smug with my whole I’ve got this vibe! I have not got this, not at all. I’ve been in a bit of a pickle mentally this week. Feeling entirely overwhelmed but with no focus or appetite to work either. Classic signs that I’m on the brink of darkness. I have found that since I have have gained the ability to notice these signs, then write about them, I can often often avoid the dreadful spiral into the depths of it all. So here’s hoping.

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

This Plus That Equals…. The Weather

This plus that equals…. the weather

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 the weather. It’s all anyone can talk about at the moment, will it snow, won’t it snow? Even without the threat of snow it’s all anyone can talk about!
