Happy Monday! I’m running late for this post again. Whoops! Anyway, the past week was fantastic. There was one incident where nursery suspected Daisy had eaten something that came in to contact with chicken, however, she was fine and wasn’t ill, so that was brilliant. Besides that, we have had a great week. Daisy has been happy, playful, learning lots and has generally been a joy for the bulk of the week. I can tell that she is feeling better in herself and this is lovely! Here is our Living Arrows 4/53 post.

Living Arrows 4/53

Sorry that this photograph isn’t great quality… Not that I’ve ever been known for my photography skills..!

Our coffee table is ruined and I refuse to replace it until we move later in the year – as I’m tight! Daisy is relaxing in her dressing gown and PJs and is having great fun with a tea set that she got for Christmas.

We had a couple of days this week where we did nothing at all. Then Daisy went to Nursery twice (Tuesday & Friday) and saw her Grandparents Thursday and Grandma one day too. It has been a great week for getting work done, and chores and I loved that we could spend our days together relaxing and didn’t have to have the pressure of lots of work or chores too.

In the weeks when we get lots of time together and go out lots, I always feel like I am winning at life. I’m so grateful to my job for allowing me to be home for Daisy every day and be able to walk her to the nursery and arrange nice fun activities. I feel like the balancing act of my work, home life, family time and me-time is pretty good at the moment!

    I’ve got a few pieces of furniture that I refuse to replace until the kids get older – let them have fun with the old furniture and then replace it when they’re old enough not to ruin the new stuff.
    So pleased you’ve got your work/life/family balance sorted – it can be such a juggling act.

      We are moving later this year so definitely in need of some new furniture but our slightly tatty sofas will be coming with us! x

    Glad that Daisy was OK after the potential chicken. It’s lovely that you’re able to stay at home with Daisy and enjoy her growing up. It’s good that you get time to yourself as well. #LivingArrows

      Thanks so much – my sister got it for Christmas for her and it’s so warm and snuggly! She seems to love being tucked up in it x

    It must be so stressful being told things like that by nursery, so relieved for you that she was ok! Love that you feel you have the balance right with work and life etc, it’s something I’m striving for this year! x #LivingArrows

    It’s great to hear you have had such a great week, thank goodness Daisy avoided any sickness from the chicken. Being able to work from home is such a blessing isn’t it, something I’m definitely grateful for indeed. Have a lovely weekend x

    Good to know your balancing act is working, it’s so important. I feel mine has gone a little bit too much towards work but hoping to drag it back. I am with you on the coffee table absolutely no point. We are hoping to move this year so I’m the same with everything! #LivingArrows

      Fingers crossed that we get our moves this year! x
