Today's writing Wednesday I actually first wrote at 2am Tuesday morning. H for happiness is the title but it doesn't seem right posting it this week. As by 10am on the Tuesday morning I heard some incredibly sad news that my husband's grandad who lives in America sadly passed away earlier in the morning. It… Continue reading A completely different post than I had planned.
Ruby is going to do more hours at nursery from next week, meaning we only have Fridays together, just me and her before little miss number 2 arrives. Fridays are going to be a little different. I've decided to make the most of the time and therefore won't be going to Friday club every week.… Continue reading F is for Friday
It really should be titled "d is for determined" but recently I've been deflated. Lots going on yet I have felt in a slight fog with it all. Maybe it's pregnancy hormones mixed in with tiredness, but I haven't felt my usual determined self. Work, as much as I love it, has been frustrating. Home… Continue reading D is for days like these
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
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
When it comes to work I am extremely disciplined. So why am I not the same with rest? In my 20’s I had all the energy in the world. Out at the pub most nights and able to work fine the next day. Yet now I’m in the middle of my 30’s I’ve realised the… Continue reading Work vs Rest
I’ve been on holiday for the last week and it’s actually felt like a holiday. Even on a tots week at Butlins. I decided to not write and just enjoy the week off. It was lovely not to have to think about work/builders/christmas(!)/housework etc. I took a mind holiday. It was lovely not to worry… Continue reading Holiday silence
I'm sat here on the sofa, watching my toddler dance around to the music of Ben and Holly, refusing to to eat her dinner and wondering what time my car is going to be dropped off after having the brakes sorted out. Today has been one of those days that I wish my wellies didn't… Continue reading Feeling like Jumping in puddles!
