Today I'm just sat here watching three men washing out the guttering and making the outside of the house look clean again. They are coming back again to do some more work later on but I'm happy things are finally getting sorted out. B is for bump as I'm now nearly 17 weeks pregnant with… Continue reading B is for bump
A while back I wrote a post about putting less expectations on myself. Not having the lists with the deadlines and beating myself up about the impossible tasks I set myself. So I decided that I still needed lists as I have a memory of a goldfish these days but not put deadlines in the… Continue reading A is for agenda
This time last year I was... basically a mess. Struggling to cope with everything life wanted to throw at me to the point of my panic attacks returning. I felt as if I couldn't get myself out at the rut. The medication I was taking made me worse and I didn't know what to do.… Continue reading Proud of the little achievements
Husband is going away for a week for tomorrow. Is it wrong that I'm looking forward to the challenge, as it's going to be a busy week. Currently we have a handyman in doing a few job and will be continuing whilst husband is away. Also I have my niece and nephew for a sleep… Continue reading Facing it head on.
Sometimes you just stand and stare. Watch them breathe in their sleep. Watch them dream about their day. Watch them grow inch by inch. Despite the tired eyes, the endless washing and the constant "mummy" I hear whilst bouncing on her bed at 9.30. I still wait. I wait for that moment, that sometimes. The… Continue reading Sometimes
I don't bother with new year resolutions. I don't see the point in new year, new you. I've been thinking about this all day. Why do we feel that a new year means we have to set high expectations onto ourselves when if it's such a big deal then why didn't you start doing it… Continue reading New year, new…. nothing
Change can often frighten but change can also become good. I wanted a change, a break. Less expectation. In the next year there is going to a lot of changes, so my New Years resolution is a biggy. Stop with the high level of self expectations! Easy written down I know. Next year I want… Continue reading A month with no writing
Two years ago today I had an accident at work. I had only been back at work for three weeks after maternity leave. It was a Tuesday afternoon and I tripped over a telephone cable that was under my desk. I cracked my right elbow and fractured my left wrist. My daughter was 11 months… Continue reading Two years ago today
When we get asked "how are you?" Our usual response is "I'm ok, just busy". As if that's what is expected. We seem to say that proudly yet inside we are dying to sit down and relax. I read an article today about the key to productivity is to do nothing. It was a fantastic… Continue reading Is being busy now a badge of honour?
Today would have been my grandads birthday. Bonfire night always used to be fun when I was young as we always had a party to celebrate. I was incredibly close to my grandad. We shared the love of bird watching, bambozle on teletext, card games, allotment digging, bike rides, tennis, badminton, and iced buns. He… Continue reading Memories
