The simplest of pleasures…

I’m sitting here in my flannel pyjama bottoms, a big bowl of cereal and watching Pride and Prejudice 🥰

And I feel……content. I know right? It shocked me too 🤣.

I’ve had an emotional rollercoaster the past wee while and to add to that, i’ve had severe Mum guilt about having to work during the holidays and not being able to do a fraction of the things I planned 😥

But. I’m not dwelling on what I can’t change. Guilt comes with the territory of parenthood…and will be part of my daily life forever 🙈😭🤣

For now? I’m enjoying this peaceful moment of drooling over Colin Firth….and I would definitely recommend doing the same if you need a wee pick me up!

Find the simple things that bring you comfort and enjoy them. A book, a film, a hot bath or like in my case, a handsome man emerging from a river in a loose white shirt. 🤣

Enjoy the small things and the simple moments that we usually take for granted. ❤

Much love xx

Tomorrow will be better.

If you had a bad night…..it’s ok.

We all have nights where we toss and turn, are restless with our minds going over every little detail. It’s ok.

Sometimes there are nights that there may be no specific reason but our bodies don’t want to give in. It’s ok.

Night time is a time of stillness, quiet and when all of our thoughts and worries of the day seem to burst into our heads because we don’t have the distractions of the day.

For me, last night was one of those nights, where I couldn’t switch off. I lay for hours going over everything in my head.

This morning though, I have woken up with a bit more clarity. I may never get the answers I need. I can’t change anything, and I also can’t let it keep me awake at night anymore….hopefully.

It’s ok. It will pass.

Not every night will be like that.

Breathe, rest and hopefully…tomorrow will be better.

What you need…

We all want many things.

Sometimes we get consumed by having the latest technology, the biggest house, the nicest car and there is nothing wrong with that at all……..IF it brings you happiness.

The dress I bought today? I wanted it (and with £10 off it was calling my name), but as the bulging wardrobe of clothes that I never wear reminds me…..I don’t need it. But. For a moment (Probably until I try it on and it doesn’t fit) it filled a small void. I was able to get out of my slump for that second and imagine wearing it, somewhere nice.

In truth though, it will take more than a dress. At a time when I feel at my lowest I’ve had to have a word with myself about what’s actually important…and then I remembered…….

Even though my life has done a complete 180 in the past couple of weeks, and I don’t have everything I want….I have EVERYTHING that I need.

So remember, even in the worst of times when you think you might never get what you want, or have lost what you had.

This moment:

Right now:

Might just be, exactly what you need. ❤
