Last week it felt like I had so many decisions to make, it was actually starting to give me a headache. Over the past few days I’ve tried to take a step back and look at the bigger picture and focus on what is important and it’s made me feel a lot better, and a lot calmer. As I get older I realise I have a tendency to overthink things and it’s not doing any good at all. So I am trying to relax and go with the flow a bit more. Let’s see how long it lasts.
It’s been an uneventful week, work, a bit of running, taking O swimming but there’s always time to focus on the positives. Let’s have a little look at this weeks little loves.
A couple of amazing and emotional posts this week from two very strong and inspirational ladies. If you haven’t already read them, please pop over and take a look.
Life After My Childhood by the lovely Sian at Potty Mouthed Mummy as a guest post on Headspace Perspective
Living with Depression: Deciding To Become A Parent on Mrs H’s Favourite Things
A little word of warning, you may want the tissues close by.
I watched Mean Girls for the first time in years last Saturday. I’d downloaded it from Sky On Demand and when O had a nap on Saturday afternoon, I took the chance to watch it. I’d forgotten what a good film it was.
I’ve had some very interesting conversations with O this week, a lot that seemed to involve various parts of the male and female anatomy. He’s at that age where we are needing to explain a few of the differences between men and women and I can’t help but giggle at the innocence of a 3 year old.
I’ve been making an effort to try and get up a little earlier than normal to avoid the last minute rushing around and stress in a morning. Those extra 15-20 minutes have made such a huge difference and I’ve even managed fo be early for work a couple of times!
We’ve also made the final payment on our summer holiday. This time in 12 weeks we will be sitting in the Turkish sun, probably with a cocktail in my hand, chilling out. I can’t wait.
Green nail varnish, on O’s recommendation. I’m not entirely convinced but it is a nice change from pink.
Tomorrow is Blog On Mosi and I am so excited. I was so nervous last year as it was my first blogging event but I am really looking forward to seeing a few familiar faces.
And best of all it’s a lovely long weekend, have a great Bank Holiday.
