This week I feel like I’m winning at the small things. That’s what a good bit of procrastination does for you. Big things like impending uni and work deadlines, well, the next two weeks maybe a bit busy.
The children continue to thrive.
CM and I seem to be finding our beat now, even if at the height of every tantrum I hear “Do you even love me?”, bless.
B and E breathe air which is caffeine infused, they are either on a permanent high or suffering from withdrawal symptoms. After committing to a month long challenge successfully I gave in and they were rewarded with Nerf guns (can you tell I didn’t think they’d succeed?). They are everything I knew they’d be, and yet the boys have continued with good behaviour in their rebellion of me confiscating them.
Control yourself. Yes. I’ve read a whole book. From cover to cover. In 24 hours.
This is why I can’t read books. I begin to think my whole personality is OCD.
But it was so good. I’ve waited patiently since reading ‘I Let You Go’. I’m so glad this was just as good.
I’ve made it to the theatre twice in the past week. On Friday evening I went over the Bridge (well through the tunnel) to see Wonderland – the Musical, which I think was the trigger for an ongoing good mood. Wednesday night I headed to the Sherman to see How My Light Is Spent which was fantastic- funny, heart-warming and real.
Seeing Wonderland and Joseph last week has got me listening to songs from all favourite musicals. Miss Saigon has been my go-to all week, so I was a little spooked and excited to receive an email notification that Miss Saigon is coming to Bristol Hippodrome. It’s a sign!
I started my new Bullet Journal this month, and I’m absolutely loving it. It feels like I’ve finally got a format which works for me.
I wanted to start getting on top of things which I feel have lapsed over the years. One thing especially has been birthdays and anniversaries. I’m sure Facebook is too blame- why send a card when you can post a message on someone’s wall? I’ve decided I’m not alone in loving stationery and snail mail so sending a card is definitely a good thing.
June is a really busy month, so I made a note to buy cards on pay day and spent yesterday writing them. For now I’m feeling super organised, and it’s so good to spend time choosing the right gift rather than panic buying.
Linked to my Bullet Journal in remembering to celebrate. And here I’m tempting fate by assuming Mr J doesn’t read my blog.
It’s our wedding anniversary this weekend. I know I’ve got so slack at thinking of gifts for him. So whether he appreciates it or not I’ve decided to go a bit traditional. Seven years, so copper.
I’m so excited that we’re heading off up North next week. We’re going to the Geronimo Festival which Mr J and the children are so excited about. Then they’ll be heading across to Yorkshire for half term whilst I jump on a train home. They’ll spending time in their hometown whilst I focus on all the deadlines I’m neglecting.
It’s good to have something to look forward to, even with the thought of a deadline welcoming my return home.
