The weather has taken a turn for the better and it now feels like Spring! Hooray! What will we all moan about now?
It was so nice to get out and enjoy the warm sun and not have to wear layers upon layers, of knits and coats. The blossom and bulbs were blooming and the birds were chirping away - seriously, what's not to love about Spring?
When was the last time that you had some “me time” or did something that was just for you?
I sometimes find that, being a mum to two small children, it's easy for me to forget about myself and what makes me feel good. So much energy is directed towards making the children happy and keeping them clean and well fed, that by the end of the day all I want to do is crawl into bed and pass out.
Weeks (or months) can go by, without so much as a thought towards my own well being. Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't change it for the world, I love raising my children and seeing the lovely little humans that they are becoming. But sometimes, doing little things for myself is absolutely needed, to keep functioning as a person.
When you are a new mum, all of the lack of attention to your own self care can create a “not feeling like yourself” kind of vibe. It's nice to find ways to start feeling like yourself again.
