A quiet half-term #LittleLoves

Saw - sunset

It’s been an odd half-term. Mr J has taken the children on holiday so it’s been really quiet. I’ve been left to get on with work. To make sure I’m ready for next week’s deadline at uni. And, of course, procrastinate.


More than a little boring, I’ve been refamiliarising myself with quantitative research. I left it too late to remember all the technical stuff covered in the lectures. Trying to understand my notes and keep up with the books is a task in itself.Reading

WatchedF.E.A.R.I went to see F.E.A.R. on Wednesday evening at Chapter Arts Centre. It’s a one-man performance focused on the fear created within society and within ourselves. It had enough dark humour to keep it light, but it’s definitely played on my mind since. It’s currently on tour, so if you’re in Wales (or Falmouth) it’s definitely worth seeing. 


I heard silence this week. It’s been so odd being on conference calls in the afternoon when the children are usually falling through the door and to be interruption free. At night, there’s been no bedtime routines, no musical beds, just quiet. It’s almost like newborn days where I feel like the more sleep I’m getting, the more sleep I need.

I have enjoyed the silence, but I’m looking forward to this afternoon when it will be completely broken.


I’ve had so much fun making CM’s birthday invites. They’re a little more overwhelming than I envisaged. I was exhausted through the focus needed to cut the design, but it was so good to put different parts of my brain into use making them.Climbing invitesWore

I couldn’t have been without my DM’s this week. I think Mr J purposely chose this week to take a holiday as it’s been so miserable. The weather has been crazy. I’ve been going out each day and even though it’s not raining the spray from the sea has left me soaked through. The dogs haven’t been walked anywhere near as much as usual but we’ve been happy to return to the warmth of the home.Wore - DMs
And lastly,

By Thursday evening the weather had calmed, there was blue in the skies, and the sunset looked beautiful. Just breathe.Saw - half-term sunset

    It must have felt so strange to be in the house on your own, I don’t know if I could have managed; our house is always so noisy!! Hope you managed to make the most of it though 🙂 #littleloves

    That invitation is amazing. I can’t even imagine having the house to myself any more. I hope you enjoy having the peace shattered again.

    I love a bit of silence when the kids are at school during the day – definitely helps me to get on with work. Those books look rather mind bending! Love the party invite, it’s brilliant. Hope you enjoy having your peace shattered! #littleloves

    Oh wow, the invite looks stunning! I’m so impressed, there is no way I could have made one of them, let alone multiple ones! x
