This Plus That Equals…. May Plans

This plus that equals…. May plans

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 my plans for May.

Feeling Calm
Can’t wait for half term

Half Term

I cannot wait. The Easter Holidays are still fresh in my mind but I just can’t wait to have a few more days at home with my boy. It would be nice to go away somewhere but I don’t think that’s on the cards for us just yet.

We’ll have some time to go do fun stuff though. Catch up with friends. Get out and about. Play. Just be home and not rushing about in a million directions.

I genuinely love the school holidays and having him at home. I’m excited for each break and sad when it ends, so roll on May Half Term is all I can say.

Feeling Calm
I’m going to get back into those fields!


With everything that’s been going on the last couple of months I haven’t walked anywhere near as much as I have wanted to, or as much as I need to.

I’ve been busy on catch up duties. Catching up with those I’ve missed, catching up on housework, catching up on work.

But I need to walk. It’s my quiet time. It’s the thing that helps me the most. The journalling, the meditation, the yoga, they are all great but the thing that helps clear my mind and calm me the most is walking and without two good, long walks a week I am functioning at half empty.

So May will be a month of walks.

Not this Spa, but a Spa is on the horizon

Spa Day

I have booked a Spa Day with my friend. Now that’s what I’m talking about, one of my May plans I’m really looking forward to.

Woop! A day for us to chill and gossip and relax. I am so excited.

I think it’s fair to say we are both exhausted and need this, we probably won’t gossip. We may just nap, have a swim, nap and enjoy a massage before napping some more.

I’m so excited to have a new friend I can do this kind of thing with and be lucky enough to have the time to enjoy these things.

Moving Forward

I think May means I’ll finally be able to start moving forward after my Grandad passed in March.

It was such a fast illness, such a shock to us all and despite the funeral having been and gone we have been waiting for the internment of his ashes which will happen early in May.

I’m hoping after this final step I’ll be able to help L come to terms with everything a bit and me as well. It will be good for him to have somewhere to visit and it will end that inbetween, waiting kind of feeling I have been left with.

May Plans
We had so much fun exploring Landguard Fort I can’t wait to see what we’ll discover next

Go somewhere new

I don’t really care where and I certainly haven’t given it any thought but I’ve been feeling a bit stuck in a rut recently and had a great day exploring Landguard Fort the other day. A place I hadn’t visited before.

We often do the same activities and visit the same places but I’ve got itchy feet and I would like to make one of my May plans going somewhere new and then actually do it.

A new town, a new museum or a new walk. I don’t really care so long as it is something different.

I think it does me good to explore and it’s the type of thing we enjoy doing a s a family so why not make a point of it and ensure it actually happens.

Finally, I’m linking up with #TwinklyTuesday and #StayClassyMama
