Feeling Calm #161

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 busy week. We’ve done lots of nice things and I’ve been pretty positive and managed to get a lot of jobs sorted out but my anxiety is through the roof at the moment.

Here are my top ten moments from the last week:

Fathers Go Free at Amazona!

One of Norfolk’s leading family attractions, Amazona Zoo in Cromer, is giving dads a special treat with a free entry ticket on Father’s Day (Sunday 16th June 2019) to celebrate their special day with their family.

Another lovely week, especially with half term. I love having the kid home, it’s just great and I’m genuinely sad when he goes back to school. That’s mainly why there wasn’t much activity last week, I was too busy having fun!

Here are my top ten moments from the last couple of weeks:

Feeling Calm #159

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.

Things have been a bit better this week. The sun is shining and I have been making a conscious effort to look after myself, it’s been worth it. I know I’ve a tough time ahead, since we got a new manager at work we’ve had two team members hand in their notice. We’re a team of 5 including our manager. It’s about to get rocky, but there’s nothing I can do about that. Just got to stay positive.

Feeling Calm #158

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.

Well, well, well it’s been a week. Everything was plodding along nicely then it all imploded. It’s always fun to be the focus of a family argument that results in tears and people walking out of a cafe without paying. I’m not handling things particularly well at the moment, but this is my happy place, so we won’t dwell on it again.

Here are my top ten moments from the last couple of weeks:

This Plus That Equals…. Mental Health

This plus that equals…. Mental Health

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 Mental Health. Not actually because it is mental health awareness week in the UK but because I am struggling, a lot, and it helps to talk and I think (hope) it helps others to see how normal it is.
