The best and worst moments lately.12:11
I thought I'd share with you, some of the positives and negatives as of lately. I've been quite busy and trying to keep up with everyday life.
Negatives this week:
I've had headaches on and off (It's the IIH flaring up, I wrote about it before so I won't go into again) but hopefully I'll receive a neurologist appointment soon. I am finally over the cold I had though! Horah!
My internet is very temperamental. It keeps going on and off, last night was horrendous. I ended up phoning the internet service provider. I may need a technician to come and fix it. I have no blog posts scheduled so I really need to get onto that!
I've had a few things on my mind and it's made me a bit anxious and felt a bit down but I'm getting over it now and feel much better today! I'm sure having a cold and headaches on and off hasn't helped.
I weighed myself and I've gained 2 stone since this time last year which is very depressing. Still, loosing weight will give me something to focus on! I'm sure once I've lost some weight, I'll feel much better in myself and way more confident! I know it certainly helped last time.
It's peeing down today! This is actually a positive and negative. I'm grateful it's cooler but I'd liked to have got some walking in but not in the rain! I don't need another cold any time soon.
Positives this week:
The weather has been amazing (Shame it isn't amazing today!) and we've been enjoying the weather a lot. The kids have bee playing out in the garden and around the culd-de-sac with there friends. They really enjoy riding there bikes and scooters. They also had a water fight on Sunday because it was SO hot! That was fun.
Ellie and I enjoyed a really lovely adventure, exploring the countryside around us. It was great fun. We saw some sheep and lots of pretty views and flowers. Ellie found a foxes hole (or perhaps a rabbit/badger but it was a rather big hole). We had a lovely afternoon, just the two of us while the boys were spending time with there dad.
I'm back on the whole eating healthy and working out. I start working out this evening. I'm going to do the thirty day shred again.
I've been reading again! I love reading so much. I'm currently reading 'The Other Child' by Lucy Adams and I'm really enjoying it. Very good story indeed (Look out for my review). I also found this lovely little note card inside which the previous owner must have popped in. It made my day (It's the little things). What a lovely idea. I'm going to leave it in there when I donate it back to the shop.. I hope it makes the next readers day, too.
I feel like my blog is doing well. My traffic has increased ever so slightly, which is always a good thing! I've been really trying. I need to work more on my social media and interacting more but I am really not a very sociable person and I find it difficult. I would like to get to know my followers on twitter though! Everyone seems to lovely and very friendly :)
Things to look forward to:
Charlie is currently sitting his year 6 SATS but is half way through them after today. I am looking forward to him finishing them because I know he'll be relieved. The amount of pressure they put on kids these days!! I won't get started on that though. I am very, very, proud of him and he deserves a treat this weekend. Not sure what yet but I'll figure something out.
Half term can't come soon enough, haha. I look forward to the break from the school routine and plus, we're hoping to go on a picnic and perhaps a day at the beach or somewhere a bit different :) I miss the kids when they're at school. The house is so empty and quiet.
I'm going to have a look in a couple of charity shops sometime this week - for books! I need a larger print most of the time because of my eyes but charity shops are a great place to find what I'm looking for! I'm all for recycling and it's a lot cheaper. I have a pile to also donate to my local charity shop along with a couple of other random things.
We're looking forward to better weather, not too hot though please!
