On healing

I have been getting out of bed and then straight back into it. Indulging in breakfast in bed one Saturday morning.  I have a recurring bug I can't shake. I've got the next two weeks locked in for some much needed rest and recuperation. Some beach time and sunshine. Tomorrow is the first day of spring. It always marks a new beginning. A self promise of more exercise and better eating. I'm doing some redecorating at home and have new linen. New vases and new artwork. 

I've been disconnected as I've tried to rest. When everything is done I don't want to sleep. I want to read and share but right now I have to sleep. So goodnight x

I love Wednesdays. A sunny day spent with my little girl. Giggling. Music class. Going down the slide 100 times. Drinking tea. Cooking and eating. I even had time to do my nails and read.

"Be content with what you have; rejoice in the way things are. When you realise there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you" - Lao Tzu

I've lust after these boots for a couple of years but for whatever reason I could never justify them to myself.  And when I was ready to take the plunge my size was never available.  They come in so many colours and textures and while I was leaning towards the black leather I am so glad I ended up with navy suede.  They're so beautiful and so comfortable and the colour slots perfectly into my wardrobe and complements all the neutral colours I wear these days.  I'm wearing less and less black and loving these more every day.

I spent a couple of awesome hours in the kitchen tonight - chicken noodle soup, wontons (which are 11/10) and a stir fry.  More cooking tonight means more quality time with my girl tomorrow.  I cherish every smile and every cuddle.  Life is good.

Rag & Bone Newbury boots (here in navy), the black I really wanted and the black pair I think I will get next, Bassike tee, Witchery Coatigan - great price now with the spend & save. Zara jeans.  No accessories.  No make up.  No perfume.  So liberating.

A cheeky pyjama afternoon on Saturday.  Eating raspberries and reading books.
