This is a blog about my life, it probably won't change your life, but I find it a good outlet. I have struggled with motherhood at various times for lots of reasons, but love my two children to bits. My husband is my rock and without him I would be lost. Like most mums, I am trying to find the balance between working, being a mother, wife, friend, school mum and whoever I am. Sometimes it all comes together really well, and sometimes well. Hope you enjoy reading my ramblings. Sooz xx
So the new year is now one week old, and I thought it would be wise to check in with some of my goals and see how I was doing.
So far - not too badly. I have walked nearly everyday. It is great for mind and body. My wonderful hubby lets me go for a walk at witching hour. M2 can be put in the bath and M1 and he can amuse themselves easily and start getting the dinner preparations underway. It is a good system. We normally "tag team" then, and he will head out for a run once I get home.
I have tried to be kinder to myself - but this has sometimes meant I haven't been as kind to others as maybe I should be. But I am trying.
I am living more in the moment, and this is allowing me to play and interact more with both M1 and M2.
The wine thing is going badly - I definitely need to do better with this goal. It is such a ritual to enjoy a nice glass at the end of the day, but really not so good for the waistline. I can only seem to last a day or two without it and then cave in and have one again. Must. Keep. Trying.
The others are works in progress.....
Overall, not bad I guess.
The year is certainly going to present a lot of new challenges, but I feel truly blessed that I have a healthy and happy family, that love me, and I them.
I know some of you out there have a tough year ahead - you are in my thoughts.
