This week has seen the return of routine after Christmas. It has been lovely to get some normality back after the holidays.
This year has started off really positive. I feel in a much better frame of mind and am planning to carry on. My motivation has been back to how it was and my anxiety has been low. This leaves me feeling happy and confident that I can keep it up!
Here is our week in pictures...
Monday 5th January 2015
Monday was Joseph's last day of the Christmas holidays so we all got our coats on and we went for a walk round Normanby Hall. Normally the furthest that I will venture with all three children, on my own, is the supermarket, which is usually stressful. But on Monday I took the three of them for a walk and they were all so good. The twins wanted to walk with Joseph and it was lovely to watch. This has shown me that now the twins are getting bigger days out like this are possible.

Taylor makes me laugh so much. This picture is of Taylor hiding from Daddy at bed time. I love how the twins believe that if they can't see you, you can't see them. As they hide the giggle so much you can't help but giggle along with them.

Recently I have become diary and note book mad! On Wednesday I bought a little pocket sized diary to note down my Embrace Happy 3 Good Things to keep a written note of the good things that happen. This is going to be my tool to keep happy. If I have a down day I plan to look through my happy book. This will remind me of all the reasons I have to be happy!

It was impossible to get a clearer shot of the fun that the twins had with bubble wrap on Thursday as they would not stay still! On Thursday they had some sensory fun with bubble wrap. I took their socks off and laid out the bubble wrap for them to jump on and pop.
Friday 9th January 2015
Friday was windy but a dry day so when I went down to the chickens the twins came along and enjoyed some time in the garden. They both thrive on being in the fresh air and the garden is a big part of home life for us. So during the cold wet months they really do miss going out and playing. While it was nice, we certainly made the most of it.
Saturday 10th January 2015
On Saturday we had a lazy morning followed by going out to the shops and visiting my parents. In the evening the hubby and I did something that we used to do all the time when we first got together. Once the kids were in bed and after my mum and dad had gone home we sat up until late talking. Normally we just go up to bed as we are tired but on Saturday we stayed up, had a drink and talked. It was lovely reconnecting in a way that we used to pre twins.
