Feeling Calm #162

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.

It’s been another hectic one. I cannot wait for the summer holidays just so that I don’t have to negotiate all the school goings ons. I swear I have more school related paperwork and form filling in to do than I have for the rest of my life combined and that’s coming from someone who had just sorted out all the insurance renewals!

It’s been a busy week. We’ve done lots of nice things and I’ve been pretty positive and managed to get a lot of jobs sorted out but my anxiety is through the roof at the moment.

Real Good Ketchup

I’m hoping I’m not the only parent to have found that adding Ketchup to seemingly any meal makes it so down far more easily!

I’m fully aware it’s not always the best choice though. I try hard to think about what I’m feeding L and keep it healthy as well as fun but it’s not always that easy.

Just in time for summer, Get Out and Grow, is launching an incentive encouraging students to head outside and get planting, growing and learning about just where fruit and vegetables come from.

Why? Because according to a recent survey, 90% of children said that they would like a garden at school and at one primary school in Lincolnshire, a school garden made all the difference when it came to pupil’s behaviour.
