Sunday Contemplation

I spent yesterday with a best friend. We had a brilliant catch-up. She’s presently living in Amsterdam so I haven’t seen her in person since January 1st. I miss seeing her name in my diary for coffee dates.

And we got into the usual heavy thinking part of our “so… what’s going on then?” And I hedged because I didn’t want to voice out loud what was in my head. Now I’m not putting it here either. I will discuss it with both my best friends at some point.

But right now I’m not sure how to put it into words. If I even want to.

But after our conversation I had a startling revelation. I want my blog to be uplifting for me, and in turn for you. That’s not to say I won’t share the other stuff. But my thinking is, if I strive to stay light, not in my content, but in my demeanor I’m hoping it will have an external effect to how I see things and hopefully my actions will change also.

So to that end on certain days it is harder for me to blog (three days a week I go to bed early because I’m at work for 4am). I am determined to blog everyday until it’s a habit. So my plan is to have some inspirational quotes ready to post, posts about my favourite books. Music I’m loving at the moment. And I’m now carrying a notebook around with me to write the super duper cute things my little man says. By blogging every day, I don’t think about it. I just write. I’m hoping you want to read my ramblings and that I actually have something interesting to write.

Tomorrow I’m going to start by writing what my typical day looks like. You will be my accountability for being rubbish and procrastinating. Not giving my little man 100% of my attention. He starts school in September and I truly feel like I’ve wasted the last 4 years together. But no more. We’re having fun and dates.

Thanks for reading

Good night all



Monday ~ Nap time



Happy Monday


Hope you all had a good one.

My little man had his 1st swimming crash course of the week. He’s been having swimming lessons a while now. He had gone up 2 groups but because of chicken pox etc he missed 4 weeks out of 5 and regressed. He went back down just to get his confidence back up and he’s still there. So I’ve signed him up for the intensive course. Hopefully he’ll be able to go back up ready for September when he needs to change his timetable to fit in preschool.

He did really well, most importantly he had FUN.


On another subject, I’m needing to take a nap everyday. Around 2pm I’m hitting a wall. But I’m trying a new thing from tomorrow. When I’m starting to fade, get outside. Get some sun. It’s better for the little man to, not having to watch me crash out on the sofa while he plays.

We did some brilliant art work today lol. Well about as good as a 3 yr old and me, artistically challenged. Seriously I mess up drawing stick people. But I enjoy it. I’ll never put my pieces on the fridge but it’s not big enough anyway with all the little mans.

Tomorrow is another day. Another chance to do better. Keep my list of resolutions.

I’ll post more about this another day. Need a sneaky peak go over to this blog. I love it, got both the books.

Thanks for stopping by.

See you all tomorrow
