This week I have enjoyed making time for myself, finding those few moments when I can sit down and enjoy a cup of HOT tea instead of having to remake it over and over. Cooking and making things in the kitchen rather than just grabbing something for convenience.
We have even taken to getting up on a morning when we wake instead of setting an alarm. The girls are loving that I have given them a bit more freedom in going to sleep and waking, although it may need to be reigned in in the future as I can imagine Evie being a complete bed hog and never leaving hers again!
I have spent the best part of the week catching up on overdue blog posts, doing admin and general housework and you know what, it feels good to actually be in control of things for once. Maybe it is just a frame of mind but I feel like since I started moving my mind set into one of ‘this is my life and I control it’ I have seen a huge shift in the way I look at things. Yesterday for example I had a new chair, desk, curtain pole and curtains to build and sort out but I shrugged them off and spent 7 hours at my mums playing games with my sister and her fiance who were visiting.
You know what?
The desk and chair and curtain pole and curtains were all still there when I got home and after making dinner for me and Ethan (the girls were at their dads so Ethan came to stay for some one on one!) I set about putting up the pole and building up the desk etc. It was all done before bedtime and we had spent a lovely day with family too! We can have it all, its just a matter of prioritising what is important!
This coming week I think I will take the girls to get new spring coats and we may even stay out for afternoon tea as an early Mothers Day celebration because you know what….I deserve it!
