Feeling Calm #120

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.

The sun has continued, how lush! We’ve just been making the most of it really. In between me working and the occasional movie indoors when the heat gets too much. It’s just been a really nice week.

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

Woo hoo it’s still hot and sunny. I know it’s not for everyone but I am loving this weather so much. I’m getting a nice tan, I’m super happy thanks to all that vitamin D goodness and copious amounts of evening gins in the garden.

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

Sorry there wasn’t an update last week. I had tonsillitis and was really struggling. I’ve been up to quite a lot though, so there is plenty to catch up on.

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

We’re in Bluestone at the moment and enjoying the good weather. Overall we’ve been having a good time but these last few days L and husb just seem to be a loggerheads and I’m stuck in the middle which is very frustrating. It’s hard when they are both in the wrong but one is a child and oe is an adult. Hufffff. I’m exhausted by it.

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

Feeling Calm #116

A whole, entire week at home, no holidays or bank holidays. No time off work or nursery. Just a normal week. That’s been very nice in itself actually. We’re all pretty burnt out and L has been, quite frankly, horrific. It’s just been so non stop since we got back from Turkey and we’re away again next week, I’ve been craving some normality.

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

Feeling Calm #115

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’ll be honest, this week it has been very hard to remain positive. After my car developing issues and my laptop failing last week I was just about managing to hold it together. My website has since been hacked, now fixed, thank god and I got home tonight to find the cat had a giant abscess that was leaking puss everywhere. We have an airlock in our water pipes that is refusing to budge and one of the chairs for our garden set has broken, somewhat like my sanity.

Regardless, here are my top ten moments from the last 7 days:

My laptop has died. I’ve tried everything but cannot revive it. It’s a nightmare. I’m muddling through on my phone but it’s not as easy. In other news this week I’ve started Weight Watchers to get in control of my ever increasing waistline and things are back to normal post holiday.

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

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!

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!
