Morning friends! Not sure how Monday has come around again so quickly?! We’re almost into February already, before we know it Christmas will be here again…slow down!! Time is a bit of a theme on today’s post as I have had to take some time back for myself this last week. Apologies that there was only one blog post last week but I had been spending so long at the computer and with my hours at work, family and house stuff and my Avon job I was just exhausted. I had a day off work on Tuesday, which I never do, but I just knew I needed to rest. It’s important to remember to take a break when our bodies start telling us to stop. I have been guilty in the past of powering through and making myself ill and this time I recognised the signs and put my feet up! I even sat and watched a movie on Tuesday afternoon – I can’t remember the last time I sat and watched a film, on my own, from start to finish!
We’ve had some great family time this weekend, roast dinner at the pub followed by a family movie on Sunday and watching Archie in his first basketball tournament with a local team on Saturday. Archie is off to Arizona and LA in April to play basketball with his school team and has been feeling pretty unsettled about the whole thing. He’s felt his basketball skills aren’t quite up to scratch and that perhaps he shouldn’t be on the team :-(. As a parent it is often so hard to know what to do for the best in these situations, make him go and hope that everything will be ok or protect him by keeping him at home? I decided to enroll him in a local club and after one training session and one tournament his confidence has skyrocketed! He played brilliantly, had some great comments from the coaches and is now super excited to be going to America. Phew is all I can say! Fingers crossed he continues to enjoy his playing so that he can make the most of this fantastic opportunity.
Anyway, during my ‘week off’ I have had loads of ideas for future posts and I a have just started working on some Valentine’s printables which I am really excited to share with you. If all goes to plan they will be posted on Friday this week. Have a great Monday everyone and a fab rest of the week and remember to look after yourselves. January can be a pretty brutal month and if you think you’ve been working a bit too hard then take a break. Watch a movie, go for a walk in the country, sleep all day, whatever you need to recharge those batteries and give yourself some well deserved rest.
