Weekly Rituals (Self-care month Day 28)

Self-care month Day 28 - Weekly Rituals

Well, hello you absolutely wonderful lot,

Can you believe it is nearly the end of self-care month? We have come so far and we definitely all deserve a pat on the back for taking this wonderful journey to looking after ourselves. Well done love 🙂

Today is a rainy old Sunday here, thats ok, the weather has been getting warmer and were a bit glad of the break. Do you find that on some days of the week that you end up doing the same things? It is lovely to create a ritual on certain days of the week because we often thrive in routine. We know what is coming and we know what we need to do. Cont…

Switch-off Sundays (self-care month day 21)

Do you have a day of the week where you just do not work? When you refuse to check emails or switch on your work phone? It’s a nice idea to have a healthy break from work matters but often a difficult thing to pull off, especially for a whole day. Why not try it consciously for a couple of hours and then see if, bit by bit, you can stretch it out into longer periods of time. Cont…

Weekends; A to-do free zone

My weekends can be pretty hectic. Or they can painfully quiet. There never really seems to be much of an in-between. My main rule for my weekends is that any routine and schedule that is kept during the week basically goes out of the window. Which makes enough freedom to be spontaneous. It is perfect for when you get an unexpected sunny spell to go to the park or the forest. Or for when you run into friends and decide to go for coffee. Obviously some plans have to be made and kept even at weekend. And somethings have to be done at some point, for me that is studying. But as I say its so nice to have no pressure, to be free and to enjoy your time.

If you need any ideas of fun things to fill your weekend with I recommend The Wonderful Weekend Book by Elspeth Thompson. It is full of fun, weekend joy. Now I’m going to spend my Friday doing as much studying as I can in order to have some free time this weekend. I hope you enjoy whatever it is you are doing with yours.

A busy weekend

Mr.H returned home from his travels on Friday which meant we indulged in chippy tea and he stayed awake just long enough to put the kids in bed before drifting off into jet-lag induced sleep on the couch.

On Saturday we lounged around the house and played and watch tv and stayed away from the snow. Then I had a haircut which is always a great joy. I left feeling refreshed and pampered and floated my way home. On Saturday we also negotiated better deals for energy providers and car insurance and it took a long time and a lot of effort but we ended up saving ourselves around £700 a year altogether so it was well worth it. We dragged ourselves out into the cold for a few drinks on Saturday night and caught up with some friends and each other.

On Sunday I woke with a sore head after only 3 glasses of wine! I really am out of practise at this going out lark but i quite like it that way ;-). My mum and I went of to a felt-making workshop which was a really enjoyable, creative way to spend some time together. We never really do things together without Mr.H or the kids so it was a lovely way for us to connect and we did. We also met some lovely ladies and had a good laugh at the same time. I took some photos to show the process and the outcome. It was a learning experience for sure!

The weekend was full of creativity and inspiration and left me brimming full of energy and inspiration for the week ahead. Once i had caught up on Saturday nights lost sleep!
