A day later than planned, we’re joining the book tour for Jackson Saves an Owl written by Darren Garwood and illustrated by Carl Osborne.
Hey!! I’m sorry I’ve been a little absent lately, we’ve had a few things going on at home but all I’ve wanted to do was write. Well, here I am and I’m back with a tag because, who doesn’t love a good tag post. The wonderful Charlotte tagged myself and some other lovely mamas in this. I do love doing a tag now and again, I love to answer questions and I’m so nosey… I love finding out about other people through them too! So here, have a nose at mine haha!
On a normal morning drive to work, I was hit by another vehicle. I was in a car crash. I honestly had never experienced anything like it before, and not just the crash but the adrenaline, the shock, the emotions afterwards. And most importantly, what was going to happen next. I was completely oblivious. I had people around me I could ask for advice or what happened when they had a similar experience, but it’s a pretty personal one isn’t it? Dealing with the insurance companies, sorting out your vehicle and also looking after yourself. Maybe there was physical injury, or PTSD or anything that comes with a particularly distressing event like this.
Each month, I’m joining in with the 5 things I’ve loved linky, created by the wonderful Rachael & Georgia. As I explained in May’s Linky Post, the aim of the post is to think and write about 5 things I’ve loved this month that are NOT parenting related. We all know a lot of our time is consumed by our sweet, needy, adorable little humans, but what makes us tick? What’s been floating our boat? I have to say I’m loving reading what others have been enjoying and it’s so wonderful to see that everyone is taking time for themselves and doing nice things they love other than being a parent.
I have mentioned before how the house we live in is rented and that we are unable to do much in terms of decorating and physically altering anything within the house, so we have to look to other alternatives. Which I’m sure many other families are in the same predicament too. I have a feeling we are going to be here for a little while longer, and as bear is getting older, I don’t really want him to have the gross magnolia walls. I’ve been looking at new ways to try and alter the decoration in his room without getting into any trouble with the landlord.
