Feeling Calm #138

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.

So November already seems to be flying by, I can’t believe how fast this year has gone. Maybe it’s because we have had so many big events or maybe it has just been super fast. This week has certainly gone by in a blink.

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

Our Visit to Old Bolsover Castle & Cundy House

We’re enjoying our second year of English Heritage membership. Membership for two adults, with L free, is £31 in Tesco Clubcard Vouchers. So it is next to no money. L loves castles, English Heritage have a lot. It’s free days out for a year.Bolsover Castle

I’m trying to write about all the properties we visit using our membership. What I liked, didn’t like, share some pictures. We more than made our money back on the membership last year and this, so I am very happy it is good value for money.

It’s been a lovely, normal, quiet week. Well quiet for me anyway. I have been enjoying the routine that L being back at school brings, though I’m still a bit weepy about the whole thing. Generally though, life is good.

Penguin Pile Up Review

We have been lucky enough to review the latest game from Ravensburger, Penguin Pile Up. It has been an instant hit and I have to admit, this is one kids game I love. Aimed at ages 4+ it certainly holds value for the whole family.

Happy Halloween everyone!! Half term is over and we had a great time. Kiddo is back to school and that all went off without a hitch, I had been worried after the break at home we might have a wobble about going back to school, but obviously he was fine. Whilst I miss having him home I am enjoying the return of our routine.

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