Rainy Day Bits and Bobs.

Welcome to Blogmas day 21!

I don’t know about you but during the winter time I often have days where I’m feeling a bit fed up and a bit overwhelmed with all the Christmassy cheer.

When I feel like that it tends to make me feel quite down. This year I decided to buy a few things to keep my mind occupied.

I picked up some cross stitches, some magazines and a colouring book, all Christmas themed of course!

I’ve always found colouring quite comforting and having these things to do in the evening times has really helped relax my mind.

The best part is, you can remove the pages from the finished pictures in the colouring book to decorate your room/house. You can do exactly the same with the cross stitches.

What do you to relax your mind during the festive season?

Self Care Sunday.

Dear Journal,

How was your weekend?

Firstly, I would just like to apologise for not uploading a post last Thursday. I just felt that it wasn’t good enough to upload. I didn’t have the best of weeks last week. I’ve finally gotten over the cold and I’m feeling much better.

I had a day off work on Sunday. I was so happy. I would like to share what I got up to with you.

I got up super early and ate breakfast (I’ve been managing to get my three meals a day in, I’m so proud of myself) then I walked the dog. It was such beautiful day, it’s starting getting a little warmer which is nice. I love the spring weather.

I had a long to-do list to get through so I was glad to be hitting the ground running. I had lots of blog photos to take for March’s uploads. Then I did some post planning as well as some writing for a project I’m working on.

I’ve been remembering to take short breaks in between doing tasks so I don’t get overwhelmed and carried away, so I made time to do some reading and yoga.

After dinner I walked the dog again, then I did some baking. I forgot how much I love baking! Then I took a bath and did a face mask. It was divine! I don’t think I’ve felt that relaxed in a long time.

Thank you so much for reading ❤

What did you get up to at the weekend?
