Welcome to #mamamondays. Here I try to include anything that is making us happy – and hopefully you too – even though it’s a Monday. And, I have to say it really is making me try to make the most of this often ‘depressing’ day
It has been anything from what we’re doing or planning to what we’re eating, watching or reading. I’ve even included items I’m lusting after or buying and anything else that has been inspiring me to make Mondays – and the rest of the week if need be – just a little more bearable.
I really hope that #mamamondays is inspiring you to make the most of this fresh start we get every week…
Well, technically not posing more having my picture taken out of necessity. I am not a fan, as you may know of having my picture taken. Too many hang-ups and hating the way I look in captures. But, sometimes you just have to grin and bear it and this is a case in point with my new Editor picture for Junior Magazine.
I needed a new headshot to launch the Junior Design Awards – of which I am heavily involved. So, we took some staff shots and this is mine.
The lovely folks at Dorset Cereals sent me a hamper (they had me at hamper) of breakfast goodies in order to promote its #breakfastontheslow campaign. I’ve been trying to eat breakfast at home more (rather than on the move, at my desk or, worse on my commute) and really sit down, slow down and appreciate this first meal of the day.
Breakfast is actually my favourite meal of the day. But, life admin, school runs and constant shouting of teeth, shoes, coat tend to take over. Anyway, I have been enjoying some mornings of goodness from Dorset Cereals with my new favourite bowl and engraved spoon – who knew simple things could make you so happy?
I literally have a slipper obsession and have several on rotation but what makes these ones so special is not only are they chic, simple and comfy. They have a collapsable heel for easy slip-on style – and the best bit, they can also be purchased with a detachable rubber sole that you can slip-on to hit the garden, put the washing out or, dare I say pop to the shops (who am I to judge, I used to do the nursery run in my PJ’s with a massive coat over the top).
So, it would be safe to say when Mahabis got in touch and offered me a pair to try – I was a tad ‘over excited’. I’ve been wearing them non-stop and although I think they are *expensive* for a slipper they are the sort that last – and, anyway once you have them you will wonder how on earth you managed without them. Yes, they are that good.
