Feeling Calm #165

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 lovely week. Great weather, Great friends. A last minute weekend away, it’s just been delightful. Just what I needed as well. To have a bit of a break.

Here are my top ten moments from the last week:

This Plus That Equals…. Cheering Myself Up

This plus that equals…. cheering myself up

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 little things I do to cheer myself up.

I’ve been a little overwhelmed of late, spreading myself too thinly, taking on too much. The school holidays are looming, L hasn’t been sleeping well, I am stressed, husb is stressed and it’s taken its toll. So I thought I’d share the little everyday things that have been cheering me up.

So I took an impromptu week off blogging last week. The building work had started and I had a million plans, so I chose to step back and decide to prioritise myself a bit. That being said I’ve now got LOADS to catch up on.!!

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!
