Feeling Calm #153

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.

Today has not been a good day, but today also isn’t part of the last 7 days, which were, on the whole pretty good. I need to concentrate on some self care a bit more, but otherwise it’s been a lovely week.

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

This Plus That Equals…. Comfort

This plus that equals…. comfort

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 things that bring me comfort. I need it at the moment, I’ve been dealt a blow I was expecting and wasn’t prepared for, a family member who is ill and likely won’t get better, so it’s comfort I’m after right now.

Feeling Calm #152

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 a nice quiet, calm week. Just what I needed. I grabbed some extra hours at work and just chilled and relaxed with the kid. It’s been lovely.

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

Half Term was amazing. We had the best time, it was so chilled out and just lovely. Both L and I have been a bit sad now he’s back at school but we’ll soon get back in the groove of it all.

This Plus That Equals…. Back to School Sadness

This plus that equals…. back to school sadness

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 back to school sadness. I’m writing this on the last day of half term, I’ve just finished crying for the third time today, I’m really sad he’s going back to school but all my social accounts seem to be full of people celebrating the end of the holidays. So I thought I’d balance that out a bit.

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.

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:
