Pottering and pizza

View this post on Instagram It’s very rare that I can say this with any degree of authenticity when the kiddos are involved, but today was, on the whole, pretty ‘chilled.’ Don’t get me wrong; the personettes’ bickering and squabbling still played a fairly prominent role throughout the day, but there was also a decent amount of pottering and moseying going on. A trip to the dentist for my best girl turned out to be more fun than it sounds (it was just a check-up, and the movey-up-and-down chair, the squirty water spray thingy and the free ‘balloons’ – who…

Friyay

View this post on Instagram It’s #Friyay, the sun is shining, I’ve had a half-decent night’s kip, and the day has been relatively productive so far, so I’m off to treat myself for a powerwalk and a coffee. On the downside, there are defo way too many commas in that sentence for my liking, but hey ho, swings and roundabouts, and all that. Since I’m all about channelling the Positive Percy today, I’m focusing on the happy things, the upbeat things and the windows of opportunity (just in case you wondered where we were heading with the obscure window pic,…

Doughnut to Dynamite

View this post on Instagram This week’s #happiness has come from decent coffee; uplifting chats; a car wash-themed kiddo’s birthday party (we love a bit of child labour round here); a dance class; some run-plod-jog-type action and, finally, a brief but beautiful spell of rain yesterday. I also paid a visit to a friend who’s going through a rotten time at the moment, and I think the silliness that ensued helped, a bit. I continued plugging away at the ol' #endloneliness chat – I know it might seem a bit gloomy to some, but since the studies (and, ya know,…

Wonderful Wobert

View this post on Instagram Highlight of my day yesterday? A lovely long chat with this funny fella on the left. Siblings often don’t get much attention in the relationships convos we see online, but for me, this handsome beast is the absolute bee’s knees, and since the loss of our lovely Mum last year, I really don’t think I would have made it through the messy quagmire of #grief if it wasn’t for him. Whilst there’s no way I can ever hope to adequately pay tribute to his big brotherly brilliance here in a measly-portioned IG caption, let it…

Ratatouille rebels

View this post on Instagram After yesterday’s waffley words about wobbles, weaknesses (a.k.a #procrastination) and #womenempowerment, today I’ll try to step back, slow down and break down le stuff into bite-sized, manageable pieces. Ya know, channeling my inner river by harnessing that inherent calm and flow, and all that jazz. In fact, the lovely Kim Palmer of @clementineappuk was kind enough to give me some tangible, actionable advice as to how to go about this (see last post for more info). As such, I really have no excuses left when it comes to putting off those all-important tasks & errands…
