What A Difference

Last week was not a good week. I was incredibly teary and just lacking motivation. I felt like I was sinking and didn’t know how to jump ship. Only yesterday when someone asked me how Mothers Day was did it really click; I hadn’t been thinking much about it, just trying to ignore it really but I don’t think in doing so I realised the enormity of how much it was affecting me.

It was hanging over me like a big black cloud and it was hard, really hard. But like everything since last April you plough through it and here I am. Feeling battered and bruised emotionally but it’s sparked something. I can’t believe the different a week has made.

I haven’t had massively busy or particularly exciting week but if you saw on my Instagram that I decided to have a mass sort out of clothes and whilst I was way in over my head the girls  room is now spotless and I have bagged up two huge bags for a school table top sale and another two boxes of girls clothes out the way and I’m feeling good! There’s only our room to really sort out then the house is in pretty good shape. Not sure where this new found energy has come from but I’m feeling happy about it

    Glad you’re feeling a little brighter, and it sounds like you’ve got loads achieved this week. I need to have a good sort out of my kids’ bedrooms and clothes, too – I’ll get there at some point! Thanks for sharing with #WotW x

    It’s nice to hear that you are feeling a bit better this week, having a big clear out helps me too, I always feel like I have less patience when there is stuff to be done around the house (and you have reminded me I need to sort all of the clothes Boo has grown out of, they are just stuffed in our spare room at the minute)

    I’m so pleased you’re feeling better lovely. I can really relate to what you’ve said here. Jan & Feb were such difficult months for me, and at the end of Feb something clicked. It was the 10th anniversary of cutting ties with my family. Such a huge deal but caught up in the midst of life with small kids I didn’t remember… My subconscious certainly did though xx
