I say it each week, where has this week gone? How can it possibly be Friday already? My ‘to do’ list is still way too long to come to the weekend already!
I have always considered myself an upbeat person. A person that tries to stay positive and bubbly for most things. There are some things I just can’t hack though and that’s technology frustrations. The kind that should be a simple fix, or shouldn’t happen at all, but usually will happen to me. I always joke that I must have walked under a few ladders or that mirror I broke in the bathtub growing up really did curse me. This week saw the brunt of it all, when my website crashed and after three days of trying to fix it bluehost were no help and I had to move to tsohost. I won’t sit and slander anyone I blame my curse. But it’s been a tough week of needing to do certain things on certain days and not being able to do so.
On top of that, it’s just one of those weeks where even the small things go wrong. Drive all the way to swimming class, it’s not close to where we live, cancelled. Drive to eat lunch out with my daughter, forgot my wallet at home. Just the little things that make your routine and plans go out the window really does frustrate me. So there it lies it’s been a frustrating week. This is why I love Morgana’s linky so much. It makes you stop and love the little things that did go right! In line with my new year’s word of balance I am reading more, being more calm (when I can) and listening and watching things that make me happy.
I am currently reading The Happiness Project. It was recommended to me by a fellow blogger and I have only just got through chapter one. Very intriguing I will let you know how I get on. I am hoping this year is full of positives and that this book just at least makes me smile while I read it.
I have shared my Beauty Failures & Favorites on MumTalkTV this past Wednesday. Where I share with you a little about some new products I am using and a new routine in my 30s that I am hoping won’t become just another beauty failure in my book. Would love some of you to comment on it if you can!
I jumped on this bandwagon from twitter to watch my very first English tv drama series ever! It was called Broadchurch! You all have been raving about it endlessly and therefore Mr P and I sat down and caught up on season one. My thoughts… well it very well could be the American in me. But it’s not my favorite. It’s slow and drawn out. One episode was just the them walking around in slow motion the entire episode. I am too accustom to my fast pace, drama packed shows in the USA to watch anything else. There was only one story line finding the killer to a little boy from the very first episode and now solved how could it go on?? We haven’t decided if we will continue with season two playing now. But I just wanted to understand what all the rave is about???? Fill me in people, please????
Missy Moo is the fashionista this week as she has been strutting her new barrettes in her hair all week. It’s growing in so fast, I swear each morning I see it a little thicker and a little longer. The curls are starting to form at the nape of her neck too. It’s so cute. People have stopped asking if she is a boy despite her in dresses, skirts and pink. We are still obsessed with our #littlebirds clothes from Mothercare. I think we pretty much own all their stuff. The style suits MM and I love the vibrant colors.
I made up this fabulous sweet, dessert muffin recipe called Berry Streusel Muffins. It turned out so scrumptious and I think I even like it better than cake. It was the perfect mix between a muffin and a cupcake. The berries gave it that added healthy vibe to it and the kids loved them. So easy to make, you must try them out. Perfect for the kids after school snack or a weekend picnic!!!
I am continued my path to get my Pinterest more organized and learn some creative things from it in the process. This week I have been working on decorating my mantelpiece in my new front room and I haven’t quite decided what style I should go for yet. While I ponder this debate I have been adding ideas to my new “Set Your Table” board. My dining room table will be my next project!
