Exhausted at work, exhausted at home

*contributed collaborative post

Juggling motherhood and work can be a challenge, and not just because you’re separated from your offspring for the entire day. There’s also the issue of exhaustion, and even if you expect it to ease off after a while, it can persist, which can lead to problems.

Still sober, still smiling, still Sarah

It’s been a while since I posted a little sobriety update so given that we are deep into #DryJanuary, I’d throw out some nuggets of support to anyone limping through the next ten days or so about what life is like since I put down my wine glass and decided to knock drinking on the head for good.

Our girls are now five and seven, and I think that’s a perfectly adequate stage of parenthood to hope that the long bleak nights of pre nightfall fear and requirement to grab any sleep you can from eight pm to be LONG behind us.

Self sustainable happiness

Bucket List Dreams ; The Northern Lights

Now we are in 2020 I can officially say that next year I will turn 40. It’s certainly a milestone age for a reason and it seems the perfect time to not only look at how far you’ve come, but also to think about where you are going. Or, more specifically, where you would love to go.

2020; Loving the skin I’m in

You could be mistaken in thinking this is a post about self care, positive mindset and the greatest love of all… learning to love yourself (God bless ya Whit). But alas, this time, the blog post title is a little less deep.

Christmas at Bedgebury 2019 Highlights

We were introduced to Christmas at Bedgebury in 2018, and our visit was memorable not just because of the incredible immersive experience and back lit scenery but also because of the insane weather we battled through to complete the trail. Of course we were disappointed the British weather let us down, but it certainly couldn’t have dampened the magic of the lights, even in the rain. more “Christmas at Bedgebury 2019 Highlights”

Tea with Santa at @Dobbies Ashford (Review)

I mentioned just last week that I’ve made failing to book Santa somewhat of a Christmas tradition in our household. Never quite managing to take that thought of ‘must book early’ and make it a reality.
