Feeling Calm #75

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. 

It’s been a funny old week. On one hand I’ve been really busy but on the other I can’t think of anything specific I’ve actually done!

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

Our Visit to Framlingham Castle

Earlier in the year I treated us to English Heritage membership. To be fair it was a no brainer. Membership for two adults, with L free, is £30 in Tesco Clubcard Vouchers. So it was next to no money. L loves castles, English Heritage have a lot. It’s free days out for a year.

I’m going to try to write about all the properties we visit using our membership. What I liked, didn’t like, share some pictures. We’ve already made our money back on the membership, so I am very happy it is good value for money.

This week has been nice and quiet, well as quiet as things get for us! Just blogging, working, playing with the boy. The flip side to not being that busy on the plans front, means I’ve thrown myself into the work side of things. So I’m just as exhausted as ever.

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

I have flown an owl. If anyone who knows me is reading this they will realise just how exciting that is for me. If you don’t know me I love my family, reading, owls, gin, cheese and chocolate. In that order. Yes I love owls more than gin.

There has been more than just meeting owls though so here are my top ten moments from the last 7 days:

See what we thought of it and also get a chance to win a game for yourself in my competition.  Continue reading Cars 3 Piston Cup Race Game Review & Competition

BRIO Police Station – Review

L adores his train set. It’s a lovely wooden one, so fits BRIO and loads of other brands. We have added to it over time and it’s getting pretty massive but when we were offered the chance of review the BRIO Police Station we jumped at the chance.
