“being good enough is often good enough”
there’s so much chat at the mo about setting goals and achievements and turning our lives into kick ass, mum boss, all-singing, strong and powerful, mother earth types that it can feel overwhelming. for me at least.
but yknow what? 🤔i reckon when you’re raising kids and working i think it’s good enough to take the pressure off and admit that getting through the day is ‘good enough’. you don’t have to “kick ass” every day. you just have to survive it 🤓 am i right?
Reasons to now employ the services of a nursery:
1. i could get some work done without a toddler shouting “i’m making beds!” in my face with various happyland toys that do not resemble a bed.
2. the smell of 💩 would be a lot less when someone else is ignoring it.
3. a 45 minute nap would be someone else’s problem and wouldn’t completely destroy my working day when i’d planned for 2 hours 💤
reasons not to yet employ the services of a nursery:
1. mum guilt.
So a hike up the local fell this morning turned into a spell of being stuck on an icy hill in a car, shrieking & wondering if i was going to die (not that i’m dramatic...) swiftly followed by a toddler refusing to walk & an incident with fox poo in avenham park. fml.
So that’s it for 2017 i guess! 🥂
2018 for me is going to be focused less on work and more on living in the moment, conquering my mental health, laughing and loving harder than ever before and spreading as much kindness as i can.
happy new year to you 😘
That’s it! i’m out of office officially! 🙌🏻i wound up on the blog earlier but the day job wasn’t over until last night. so i’m ready for xmas 🎄 and did a teeny bit of last min shopping to celebrate 🎉 @bm_stores very kindly sent me some vouchers to explore their christmas range and i was in there for far too long! they sent me £40 but i ended up spending waaay more because i couldn’t choose between all goodies 🙈🤷🏼♀️ in love with this armchair tray and candle in particular 👌🏻 because you can never have too many candles right?! 🕯have you guys ever shopped there? and who is ready ready for christmas??!
Well m’dears i’m about to film my last youtube vid of 2017. it’s time to take a lil’ break after that, 💤 regroup, get in the moment with the famalam 👨👩👧👦 and eat all the quality street 🍬
when do you guys finish for christmas?
When you buy uber cute twinning christmas jumpers primarily for the insta-factor (can we say sad?! 🙈) and all you get is an awkward arm angle & biscuit crumbs 🍪
that’ll teach me to be so vain 🤨🤦🏼♀️
comfy tho 👌🏻
Doing a lot of work today with the madness of christmas around the corner but had to stop to tell you about this insanely beautiful new fragrance that @ctilburymakeup kindly sent to to try. #scentofadream is literally just that - perfect for confident, sassy, sexy females who want to ooze all the glam. ok, i’m wearing a mum bun and feel about as glam as a pigeon today but at least i smell great, right?! head over to the blog to read more about it 💗
