How life can change in a matter of hours. Last week as I published my #LittleLoves post I was casually enjoying a drink and snack with Piglet and Tigger in London. Just hours later I was sat in our local A&E department with Piglet who had taken a turn for the worse and ended up in resus. There is nothing like a wake-up call to put your usual moans and groans into perspective.
Every now and again life has a habit of jumping up and slapping you in the face. As I published…
A belated Happy Mother’s Day to everyone. This year’s celebrations crept up on me and I was woefully unprepared with a card and gift sent at the last minute. Although with flowers ordered I think I just about pulled it off. It is always a bittersweet day for me as my mum lives ‘Up North’ so little opportunity to spend the day with her. It is what it is and I can’t change it so I just have to accept the situation.
This week was back to reality with no snow to admire and enjoy. It’s very much been about getting back into the normal family routines with Piglet back at nursery and to-do lists to complete. I’ve been feeling a little meh since Monday evening, with a migraine waking me up this morning. I’m hoping for an early night to recharge my batteries.
Like the majority of the UK, we had a visit from the Beast from the East. Whilst I had initially thought we would just get a sprinkling, as usual, instead we were treated to a thick blanket of snow.
Oh, what a week! I have to confess to being a little sceptical when I saw the weather reports over the weekend suggesting that we were about to enter a deep freeze. The Beast from the East certainly made their presence known. With the world around us looking more like a scene from a movie rather than the end of February in the UK. Instead of our usual scattering of snow, we received a thick blanket that is still covering most of the area. With just the roads and some walkways starting to turn to slush. It’s still very cold, but oh so beautiful!
From Wednesday onwards I have spent most of the days attempting to recall what day of the week it actually is. Thinking it was a day later than it was, which when I remembered that it wasn’t was a good thing as I had more time to achieve a few more things on my to-do list. At the moment I’m splitting my time between producing content and playing catch up those blog admin tasks that I never seem to get round to. I’m thinking it might be more productive to dedicate one day a week to just that so that I can make headway on the mountain of things that need doing. All tedious tasks but once completed will hopefully make things run more smoothly.
The first half term of the year is almost over. We’ve adopted a slower pace of life this week which has done us all the world of good – although Tigger is looking rather peaky. A mix of essential tasks such as new brakes for my car and a family trip to the dentist. Alongside local trips into the city, the forest and SEA LIFE Centre.
