I is for investment

When you think of investment, you think of stock brokers sitting in a busy London office talking a language no one understands. Within my learnings of mindfulness and investment in self, in my opinion, is far more important. Especially now. 34 weeks pregnant with little girl number two and I'm exhausted. My first pregnancy was… Continue reading I is for investment

F is for Friday

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

E is for exhaustion

I can see why the forces use sleep deprivation as torture. They should employ toddlers for this reason. Ruby has decided that waking every hour is a good idea. Not for me.

D is for days like these

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.

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

Facing it head on.

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.

Holiday silence

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

What a weekend!

It's been a while since I've been able to say I've had a relaxing weekend. I think it started well as my other half didn't work Friday so Ruby has had there whole days with her Daddy who she completely adores.  She walked beautifully without a tantrum when we went shopping, played with her cousins,… Continue reading What a weekend!
