Christmas Gift Guide 2016 – Need

So you know I love buying Christmas gifts for people, sometimes in can be tough to find the right thing though.

As I mentioned earlier, I love the idea of giving something that someone wants, something they need and then a little something to eat or drink. It keeps the gift giving under control and means the recipient gets a lovely mix of things.

I’ve already covered, eat and drink ideas for you, and compiled a gorgeous list of little luxuries people will really want, today is my final gift guide all about things people need. Continue reading Christmas Gift Guide 2016 – Need

Feeling Calm #41

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. 

Sorry for missing last week’s calm post. Things got a bit manic and something had to give. That something was blogging. I’m pleased to be back though and I’ve been doing some pretty cool stuff, so here are my top ten moments from the last 14 days.

Feeling Calm #38

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. 

This week has been crazy. We’ve done so much. We’ve been to London for a PlayStation Family event. I’ve been training, a lot. Mainly though L has turned three. Three whole entire years old. How did that happen?

Emotion wise I’ve been bouncing from amazingly happy to crushingly sad. For me this is a real worry as it’s one of my biggest indicators that the darkness is closing in. Another classic sign for me is the cold sores. Whenever I get really low I get cold sores. The 14 I have invading my lower lip at the moment though, is quite frankly, a piss take. At least because I know this I can concentrate finding a level place.

I need to find time to start meditating again. I’ve been having my lunch breaks in my car, so this seems like the ideal time for a few moments reflection. I also need to be writing, so I’m busy. Luckily I have plenty to write about. Without further ado here are my 10 moments from the past 7 days;

More than anything I want you to know how loved you are and how special you are. I hope you know this anyway and it is doesn’t need to be written down.
