Hey hey hey….
So it’s the 30th of September…. where the heck has this year gone?! It’s like I blinked and missed it somehow! As October is upon us tomorrow, I’ve been kinda reflecting over what’s happened this year. As I do sometimes haha! It’s been pretty eventful, but mostly pretty good. Amongst the chaos, we’ve had some really amazing times, and our daughter is growing up way too fast! She’s a really defiant little miss sometimes, seriously stubborn like me! She loves being independent as much as possible, she’s pretty much mastered going up and down stairs (which is terrifying!), is starting to speak in sentences a lot more, loves singing and dancing, runs like Usain Bolt, loves building with mega blocks, drawing, telling us stories when looking at books and generally just exploring, learning and being a toddler. The “terrible 2’s” are definitely not a myth though, and she can kick off in spectacular fashion sometimes! But, she makes me so very proud and melts my heart more times a day than I can count. Think I’ve said this before, but it’s so true. She’s truly a little blessing and completes our world totally. She’s an absolute loon, and fits in perfectly! I can’t remember life without her in it now, and quite frankly, don’t want to really. She’s made life infinitely better, and I’m loving watching her grow up, although I wish time would slow down a bit….
I think my mental health seems to have settled a bit now too, although anxiety is still pretty high for many reasons. I got my hospital referral appointment through last week, for 4th December. A lot sooner than I’d anticipated, but am slightly relieved I don’t have to wait until next year to get things investigated and see what’s going on. The pain is unbearable sometimes, and it’s getting to the point where I need to know what’s wrong and I really hope that there’s something that can be done to ease the symptoms.
I’m trying really hard to lose some weight too, as it can help with endometriosis (if that’s what it is), but I need to lose some anyway. Well, a fair bit to be honest…. at least 2 stone. Although, I’ve lost more before, so I know I can do it. It’s just a case of getting my head in the game and doing it. I’ve got my Fitbit, and am trying to hit 10,000 steps a day, and I’m trying to eat better too. I do really well during the day, but then I get a snack attack in the evenings, and it all goes wrong. I need to sort that out, asap!
Anyway, I’m going to attempt to write some “themed” blog posts in the coming weeks, focusing on a specific topic in each post. So, I’m calling all of you in to help me. What do you want to read about? What would be relevant to you? This blog is technically for me, to vent and process the craziness that is life as a mum, but it’s also for my followers too. I want to be posting things that you’re interested in reading, things that are relevant to my followers, rather than just always blabbering about my stuff! It could be anything relating to parenting, mental health, or just life in general. It could also be about beauty (well, makeup or nails!), as I’m now studying both a Nail Technician course and a Makeup Artist course too. I felt the latter was really appropriate, to go alongside my Younique business. It will help if I know how to apply makeup correctly, and what skincare regimes are appropriate for different skin types. Of course, there’s a lot more to it than that most likely, but those are a couple of things that’ll definitely be useful. I’ll be in a better position to advise people who are looking for a particular product and to help them find the right makeup to suit them, their skin and their needs. Exciting times indeed! You could even ask me about becoming a Younique Presenter yourself, as I’m recruiting for my team now too 🙂
Right, I’ll leave it there for tonight, as I’m utterly knackered after a busy day of cleaning, catching up with laundry, and running around after my energizer bunny child! Drop me a comment with any ideas of what you’d like me to write about, and I’ll get cracking on writing some posts 🙂 Have a great week everyone!
