The Friday Focus – 17/06/16

I’ve been quiet on the blogging and social media front this week as we’ve been enjoying our last term-time family holiday. We started with a weekend in Birmingham (as I needed to be there last Sunday for my HR workshop) before heading down to Butlins in Minehead where we’ve spent the rest of the week.  I’ve been here a few times for Spring Harvest (the last time was when I was pregnant with Jessica) and the last time we were here as a family was when I was pregnant with Sophie so there are always lots of memories being relived as we make our way around the site.… Read more

The Friday Focus – 27/05/16

I feel like I’ve been juggling an awful lot of balls this week – although thankfully I think I’ve managed to keep them all in the air despite quite a few moments when I wasn’t sure I could do so! It’s been another week of solo parenting combined with a big impending deadline for something I’m responsible for at work and an approaching deadline for a group project on my HR course.  I’ve had to do video conference calls with a small child wanting to wave hello and chat to the interesting-looking people on Mummy’s laptop screen and there have been quite a few stressful moments, not helped by having two nights where Jessica refused to go to sleep until way past 10pm at night.… Read more

The Friday Focus – 20/05/16

It’s been another week of flying solo for me – hubby’s away working on an event this week and next week so just me and the girls for a couple of weeks.  This week has been a little more challenging as Sophie was poorly earlier in the week.  I’m not entirely sure what was wrong but she was just very subdued and spent most of the time dozing on the sofa.  Thankfully she is back to her usual happy self now though.… Read more

The Friday Focus – 12/02/16

This week is Heart week and I’ve been focusing a lot on raising awareness of congenital heart defects, as I do every year. My blog posts this week have all been heart-focused and I’ve been busy with various fundraising events for heart charities this week too. Jessica had her monthly community nurse check-up yesterday to check her oxygen saturation levels and weight.… Read more

The Friday Focus – 29/01/16

I’ve been focusing a lot on trying to stay positive this week. At the beginning of the week, I was inspired by Cuddle Fairy to take part in the #NoComplaints challenge – a challenge to go a whole day without complaints, criticism or negative thoughts. It was hard work at times but it made such a difference to my day to try and focus on the positives and whilst I haven’t managed to be complaint-free for the rest of the week, I’ve certainly been better at not letting the little niggles get to me.… Read more

The Friday Focus 08/01/16

After enjoying lots of family time together over Christmas and New Year, this week has been all about the return to normality. Jessica is back at preschool again, our usual toddler classes have resumed and hubby is back at work. It’s been a bit of a challenge adjusting to it – I often find that I feel a little low in early January after the excitement of the festive season but after a bumpy couple of days mood-wise, things seem to be back on an even keel again.… Read more

The Friday Focus 16/10/15

There’s been a change in the weather this week – whilst it’s still been quite sunny and pleasant, there is now a definite chill in the air and Jessica has been heading off to preschool in the mornings wearing her winter coat, hat and gloves. She’s had another week of being quite tired in the afternoons and has had a bit of a cough and cold which is probably contributing to that.… Read more
