I’ve struggled this week to think of a suitable word, it’s been a week of ups and downs with no specific word to sum it up. It’s been a week of change although none of the changes are related I think it’s the right word to describe it.
Inevitably, Jake didn’t escape catching the chickenpox, after feeling poorly on Monday and struggling through Tuesday spots began to appear. Although expected I couldn’t help feeling disappointed, Chris and I had planned a very rare day together on Friday with a night away in a lovely hotel. The hotel stay is part of a review I’m doing for Mother’s Day so couldn’t be cancelled, with a change of plan Daisy and I are now going much to her delight. She is so excited so I’m classing this unexpected change as a good thing. On the plus side I won a hotel stay last week which I’ve booked for the end of March so fingers crossed that Chris and I will get our romantic night away after all.
The other change this week has been one I’ve thoroughly enjoyed, the kind of change that saves us lots of money. We have switched providers for our broadband saving ourselves over £15 per month, using a cashback app for the change also gave us a bonus payment of £100! I’ve also changed my mobile phone, gas and electric tariff which has saved us even more money.
Another change I’ve noticed this week is the one from winter to spring. The kids and I have been having fun spotting the changes in nature on our way to school. Trees that were bare last week are now covered in little green buds, there are lots more birds to spot and blossom is already in bloom. I love that the kids notice these little things, the school run takes us alongside a brook and some woodland which I think makes it easier to spot the signs of the changing seasons.
I’m also hoping that March will bring some positive changes, I’m determined to get back on track and start working towards my goals again.
