Around Here

Around here, winter is finally poking her head out.

Around here, tantrums reign after school, and Sophie is exhausted.

Around here, we have two birthdays this month - Steve is 56 next weekend, and Sophie turns 5 at the end of the month.

Around here, I am loving starting my days with creativity.

Around here, my big camera needs a repair, so I'm reduced to my iPhone.

Around here, I'm trying to get better about using my essential oils every day.

Around here, Steve has just left for 3 weeks away after only being home for the weekend.

Around here, I'm window shopping for new appliances so I can budget to buy them.

Around here, I'm researching teens and drinking after Douglas trusted me enough to tell me he and his mates have been drinking.

Around here, I cook breakfast on school days, but not on weekends.

Around here, Sophie is visiting the dentist this week, and she's excited to sit in the chair (it's taken over 6 months to get her to this stage, so I'll call it a win!)

Around here, I'm planning breakfasts and lunches alongside our evening meal plan, in hopes of getting some children to eat better.

Around here, I need to pull out my sewing machine and make some coats for fur-friends.

Around here, it's Monday, a new start every week.

What's happening around here at your place?

Linking with Denyse Whelan.


  1. Around here it's my first week of retirement! It still seems a bit unreal, but I think I'll soon get into a new way of life. I've already discovered some lovely country pubs that do discounted meals for those of us who are over 60 - guess how I plan to spend my summer days? ;-)

    1. sounds like a fabulous way to spend summer!

  2. I hear you on how hard after-school tantrums are. At school she has been 'good' all day long, and she is still relatively young, so SCHOOL is a very big experience for her...and at home, she can unwind and 'relax' where she is safe. Unfortunately for you I understand. Hope things improve soon.

    Thank you for linking up for #lifethisweek 23/52.

  3. Around here, I'm finally finding my feet after a year (maybe two if I'm really looking!) of reflection and removing the dead weight. It's nice.
