We are once again at the end of another weekend, it won’t be long before the summer holidays are upon us and weekdays will blur into weekends as we take a well-deserved rest from the regular routine.

I have always been a sucker for routine, I like to know when, where and what I’m doing and whilst I welcome the holidays I must admit that I find the lack of routine sets me on edge somewhat. Thinking back to the Christmas break I was barely able to fathom which day of the week it was until routine returned.

I have fond memories of being a Teacher, I had a strict routine, I had planners filled with lists, schedules and almost each and every hour of my day was planned to perfection.…

The kids have finally finished both school and nursery for the Christmas holidays and we can finally start to wind down or should I say rev up for Christmas. Let’s hope now that we have some time together we can relax!

It’s that time of day for yet another ‘daily positives’ post. I apologise for the lack of more general blog posts, I am managing to post on a daily basis but most of my posts do seem to be through this new project. I will aim to try and write some other posts shortly. It’s been a fairly busy week so far, once things settle down and I somehow gain more time I am sure that I will find other things to post.

Without any further waffle, here are my high points from today:

First thing this morning I was visited by the wonderful ‘Rebecca’, a mobile beauty technician who kindly gave me these bad boys.… View Post
