Feeling Calm #130

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.

Celebrating on The Broads with Herbert Woods

A couple of weeks ago we did one of my favourite things, spent the day out on The Broads in a Picnic Boat from Herbert Woods. Hiring a boat on The Broads is a Norfolk right of passage and the perfect way to celebrate anything, so when my Mother in Law asked for ideas to celebrate my Father in Law’s 65th Birthday I immediately thought of a boat.

I’m going to be honest with you. I don’t know how much longer I can carry on being this busy for. I almost cried today at the thought of cuddling a puppy that had come to visit work. Random crying is a sure fire way to tell me I need to slow down, the only problem is, at the moment at least I don’t know how or when I can. Needless to say I did not meet said puppy, wasn’t worth the risk of a full blown, impossible to explain, sobfest.

Also stressful as it now looking like our extension may not go ahead, after we’ve spent thousands on plans and surveys and other preparations it now looks like Anglian Water may have scupper the whole thing over a 4 inch pipe.
