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.

Feeling Calm #163

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 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.!!

Here are my top ten moments from the last two weeks:

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!

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.

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:

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.
