Its been announced, and I hate that I saw it coming. Another lockdown is here until mid February and this one has rocked a lot of us hard!
My thoughts for all of us as we now face another anxious time, is keep simple, lower your expectations, one day at a time.
If you're a parent, like me, timers will become your best friend in the coming days. Use them like fairy dust. Need a break? Set a timer for free play. Need some quiet? Set a timer for quiet reading time. Nothing massive, stick to 15 to 30 minutes at a time dependent on your child.
My best advice - don't be their teacher, be their parent! You can teach them an awful lot by justContinue reading
Firstly allow me to wish you a Happy New Year! Now grab a brew, this us a long one.
I'm a deep thinker.I hold my cards close to my chest and I don't make decisions lightly.And anyone who knows me, will know how long I prologue the agony of those decision making moments for!
Not many will know, but I qualified as a Swedish Massage Therapist and Hot Stone Therapist in 2008, before meeting Phil.
I have been in love with holistic therapies ever since. Slowly adding to my repertoire of skills over the years.
In more recent years, after watching the movie Stink, I felt further conviction to push our lifestyle as a whole to a more holistic, natural one. Add in PCOS, infertility, IIH, eczema, psoriasis, autoContinue reading
We are in windy Devon this week and next for some much needed down time. A holiday we booked last year and have been praying to be able to come on all year. Regardless we have had such good weather so far, and I thought I would share a few things we have done so far, this past week.
It feels like an eternity since I was last able to sit down a blog anything at all!
This year it seems to have taken a pandemic, lockdown and forced rest to get me to slow down and smell the roses. Or as in this week, the sea spray!WALKING
All the walking. We are near Woolacombe, so it is an ideal place to park up for the day andContinue reading
Truth time. I have cried about not being able to get out to the coffee shop. Seriously. I then felt guilty for even feeling sad over something so entirely privileged and as some would say unnecessary. BUT when you now find that you are a not only a Working, Side Hustling Boss and Home Maker with a new side of Home Schooler, Snack Provider, Fight Referee and all the other hats that now seem to be piled on our heads, a trip to the coffee shop is incredibly important.
I spent the first two weeks helping my family cope and adjust to the new normal. I helped my day job boss sort wages, make sense of new legislation and prepare for every scenario whilst also beingContinue reading
I haven’t done one of these posts in a while, but I thought I would share with you what I got this February in my Essential Rewards order from Young Living. I wrote a post a while ago about the benefits of using Essential Rewards which I will link here for you to check out.
I use ER to grab our toiletries and essential oils each month. It doesn’t cost us extra on our budget because we do something called transfer purchase, meaning instead of getting our shampoo or toothpaste from the supermarket, we add it into our ER order instead. It is cost effective. I can swap and change to suit our budget and have it set up to ship towards the end of theContinue reading
