the bouquet I'm still savouring from last week's wander / documenting my love of woollens (and Gorman, a love that is only indulged on sale)
Last night I was craving some alone time so I passed Clementine to my husband and filled up the bathtub. The man works long hours with an unpredictable schedule, which can make for some very long days for me as a mum. I'm grateful though that he's always happy for one-on-one time with his daughter. While they played, I got in the tub and flipped through Kelly Doust's newest book, The Crafty Minx at Home.
It felt so nice to close the door and be alone for a while, and it made me realise that it's time to start taking better care of myself. Not enough greens and not enough sleep are starting to catch up with me. The last 2 months have been all about survival - eating whatever is quickest and indulging my sweet tooth far too often. I'm beginning to suspect that I may be a bit too reliant on my daily sugar fix. While I will not be attempting to quit sugar, I will try to cut back. I've also been itching to get back into a regular yoga practice, even if that means 10 minutes a day. For the next few weeks my goals are simple: make a couple of dinners from scratch, drink some green smoothies, cut back my sugar consumption and make it to a yoga class. I think a daily nap is also in order, a habit that I fell out of once my mom left. Come to think of it, I'll be making that priority number one!
