Feeling Calm #113

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.

Well I’m home. 7 loads of laundry done and back at work. Our holiday was amazing, we had the best time and for once in my life I actually relaxed!

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

Feeling Calm #112

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.

So it’s quite short this week as I’m actually on holiday at the moment. I hope when this is published I’ll be enjoying a leisurely breakfast before hitting the beach and grabbing a G&T, because drinking before midday is OK if you’re on a beach!

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

East Anglian Game and Country Fair

L loves JCBs, loves them. We’ve worked as Brand Ambassadors for JCB Kids in the past and visited Diggerland. This kid is OBSESSED. So when I discovered that the world-famous Dancing Digger team from JCB would be visiting the East Anglian Game and Country Fair just outside of Thetford I booked tickets for me and the kid.

Feeling Calm #111

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’m starting pull things back together this week. Partly it’s because I’m too busy to think about how I’ve been feeling, not great in the long run but it’ll do for just now, but also because I’ve been putting some coping mechanisms into place and have got through an event I didn’t really was worrying me so much.

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

A Family Break on the Broads with Herbert Woods

I don’t think I have ever hidden the fact I love living in Norfolk. I love the quiet rural lifestyle and how lucky we are to have a stunning coastline, plenty of castles and attractions and the Norfolk Broads all on my doorstep.

We have spent a lot of time on the Broads over the years and I can’t think of a time since we’ve had L that we haven’t got a boat out in one form or another.  Continue reading A Family Break on the Broads with Herbert Woods

Feeling Calm #110

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 kind of a normal week, for once. That’s been nice as I’ve been struggling with my anxiety a bit and feeling rather detached.

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