I love seeing weekly round up posts and this linky from Morgana is my favourite. I’ve been meaning to join in for weeks and haven’t managed it so today’s the day! Hooray!!
A friend on Facebook (please forgive me, can’t remember who) linked to this blog poston Balanced & Barefoot about why children actually NEED to fidget. So *that* is why they can’t sit still during dinner.
We recently got Netflix, or rather I recently asked my 6 year old to show me how to use Netflix. We have started watching Orange is the New Black (5 episodes in, shhh, don’t tell me what happens). I LOVE IT. It’s a bit like Prisoner Cell Block H only, y’know, good. We’re totally hooked and can’t wait to get the kids in bed so we can watch it!
The lovely people at Joules very kindly sent me a floral dress from Joules.com (I went for the ditzy print, natch!) which I wore at BritMums Live and lots of other times! I’m in between sizes so I went for the larger size because I didn’t want to have to send it back because it didn’t fit but the sizing is quite generous so I think I could have got away with the smaller size. Given the style of the tunic though, I think it’s fine if it is a little baggier. It’s one of those things you can grab straight off the line and wear without ironing which is perfect if you’re a
lazy cow busy mum. I was so grateful to be sent something for myself, usually the kids are the lucky ones so thanks, Joules. It’s most appreciated!
Because of the Orange is the New Black love, I have been listening to Regina Spektor (she sings the theme to the show). I love “Us”. I think her voice is amazing.
I am loving unplugging and just enjoyingmy family this week. After BritMums, I came away feeling a bit….weird…I was so excited and inspired after going to Blogtacular last month but I just felt flat this time. I took a few days off, thought about what I wanted to do, wrote a few lists and I’m glad I did. When you’re sharing your life online, I think it’s so important to not get too wrapped up in it all. It’s really easy to get sucked in and it’s nice saying “You know what? It can wait. It’s not important right now. Let’s go to the park.”
