I have a confession to make. I hate shopping. In fact, I'll quite happily scrub four poop-encrusted toilets, scour the burnt egg off the saucepans sitting on my counter top AND scoop out cold baked beans from my sink - with bare hands - rather than go out to do the dreaded food shop. Why … Continue reading Unspoken Rules Nobody Tells you about shopping in Lidl!
Grounding: Day Twenty Four
Grounding: Day Twenty Four Today I acted as Nurse Burton because all three of my children were unwell with fevers and upset stomachs. Once all the boys were settled, I took the opportunity to clear out my kitchen. I want the energy to flow easily in my home. I absolutely hate clutter, and yet having … Continue reading Grounding: Day Twenty Four
Grounding: Day Twenty Two
After - unsuccessfully - attempting to ground in the snow a couple of days ago, (see exhibit A) I came to the sensible decision to postpone my daily grounding until it melted. There is being crazy determined and just plain silly. So that’s why this is super late! Aaaand we are back on track! You … Continue reading Grounding: Day Twenty Two
Grounding: Day Eighteen
Grounding: Day Eighteen Wow. The sun was out today and the ground was warm and tingly. It made my grounding experience extremely positive and I could really sense the season is soon to change.

Grounding: Day Seventeen
Grounding: Day Seventeen The trees in my garden have started growing leaves, it was really nice to see the plants starting to form buds, waking up for Spring.

Grounding: Day Eleven
Grounding: Day Eleven Today I learnt a valuable lesson. Even if you’re grounded, you can still feel like you’re falling. I think whenever I read blogs about these lifestyle changes they sell the idea that all your worries and problems will go away if you just did a, b and c. So after spending an … Continue reading Grounding: Day Eleven
Grounding: Day Nine
Grounding: Day Nine It is my Wedding Anniversary today. So today’s grounding was done in a reflective mood. As the sun settled its gaze on my face and my feet froze on the cold pavement, I was reminded of my wedding day. My husband is shorter than me, so I decided to wear white satin … Continue reading Grounding: Day Nine
Grounding: Day Seven
I had little drive to go outside and "Ground" today. You see, my father passed away Halloween 2017 and I'm still very much in the thick of the grieving process. I have my bad days and my not-so-bad days, but at the moment, every day just feels like it lacks something...or someone. I woke up … Continue reading Grounding: Day Seven
Grounding: Day Five
Grounding: Day Five I feel a lot better today. No more chills/fever and aches. In fact, I feel brilliant. I awoke before my alarm went off and decided to actually do my hair and make up this morning. After some pampering and snuggles with the dog, I ventured outside for my daily “Grounding”. Once again … Continue reading Grounding: Day Five
New Gym, New Me!
You know it’s been a long time since you’ve been to the gym when…they had closed for two weeks for renovations, moved the entrance to the back of the building and completely transformed it. And I had no idea about it until I turned up yesterday morning! The gym is a mysterious place to … Continue reading New Gym, New Me!
