Self-Care Sunday #19

This week's post may seem like a bit of a cop out as I've not had any time for self-care this week but stick with me here. My latest self-care tip is to have a good moan. Seriously, don't bottle it all up. It wasn't until 8.30pm on Friday that I finally had some time… Continue reading Self-Care Sunday #19

Self-Care Sunday #13

Wow, it's been a busy week. I've done the equivalent of an extra working day from home this week, taken Jenson to his swimming lesson, gymnastics and the park, plus lunch with the family and general mum/housework duties, so there's not been a helluva lot of time for me/self-care. Fortunately, I started a gratitude journal… Continue reading Self-Care Sunday #13

Self-Care Sunday #11

I'm just coming off 11 days off work in a row and some of the simplest pleasures and relaxing moments have been just getting out in the sun with the boys. Whether playing in the park, grabbing an ice cream or going for a walk and collecting leaves, it's been great to just be outside.… Continue reading Self-Care Sunday #11
