Things making me happy

I went to yoga this morning. It was a tough class but I do so enjoy it. It is the perfect way to start the week. When I got home the kids and I sorted out the toy room – I did a surface clean a few weeks ago but today we sorted out the boxes and threw out all the rubbish. I have a box of things to take with the to Grace Factor Social in a few weeks and it looks loads better.

It has left me exhausted though. I am battling a lot with my blood pressure at the moment. It is so low and nothing I do seems to stabilise it so all I want to do is lie down. I bought some trail mix from Montagu today and am hoping if I snack on the nuts, seeds and dried fruit it will help a little.

So what else, besides a clean toy room, is making me happy at the moment?

Holidays – we had a really great week last week. We slept late, lay around, read, watched TV, did some shopping, went to the park, baked – it was just what we all need!

Woolies Sour Gums – yes I know these are far from healthy but I have been craving them and so yesterday gave in and bought a box!

Winter – we have had such a stunning winter. Yesterday we were at the park in short sleeves and clear skies. So lovely.

Soup – I don’t think this impresses my family much but I would make soup daily if I could. I have a huge pot on the stove at the moment for the my lunches this week. Kiara doesn’t mind soup but if she sees a lentil then she refuses to touch it and Cameron isn’t interested at all!

    What makes me happy at the moment?
    Finding a sunny spot to curl up and read.
    My Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1. (Got the Kindle app on it)
    Warm, saucy comfort food.
    My new K-Way coat….I would sleep in it if I could.

    I struggle with low blood pressure too and what helps for me is a teaspoon of marmite once a day. But snacking will also help, so good thinking there.
    I have to add that we haven’t really experience any really cold this Winter though. So strange, rather frightening = global warming?
    Love the photos of David and the kids ๐Ÿ™‚

    It makes me so scared of July and August because everyone has been saying how we’ve been having warm weather so far this winter. We live in a cold house and this year we’re trying to save electricity, but I’m so cold in the house in the evenings and mornings that I feel like crying. We don’t have the temperature everywhere, but I know the toddlers room were 8 degrees last week, and he has the only room in the house where we put a heater on. That was with a heater on. So I’m dreading when the real cold is going to hit. And I feel a lot of sympathy for people that live on the street.
