365 #19 {Birthday Boy}

This week saw the sixth birthday of the boy which led to some mixed emotions on my part.
But I discovered that lots of cake is always a good medicine for that.
The work/life balance continues to elude me  - not quite sure if I'll ever find the solution to that. Answers on a postcard please.

Day 124
Sunday, but it felt like a Saturday so I snuck off to have a bottle of ale in the bath.
Day 125
Bank Holiday birthday party for the boy today. He chose the local soft play centre with a couple of friends And, importantly, chocolate fudge cake.
Day 126
Presents wrapped and ready.
Day 127
Presents opened in record time. More Star Wars Lego equalled a very happy boy.
Day 128
My tiredness peaks on a Thursday and tonight I read about, rather than practised, yoga. I need to do the latter more to clear my mind.
Day 129
I felt a bit lonely over breakfast today and started to question the caption on my mug.
Day 130
A wet wash out today. I have a cold that appeared with a headache overnight. And after a massive depressing mope I climbed into a hot bubble bath where I sat and snivelled. I must sort myself out!

    Wish I could help you on the work/life balance but I'm not very good at it. My youngest turned 6 last December but she will always be my baby however old she is! I hope that bath and those very cheerful ducks made you feel better. Fab photos as always x.

    Happy Birthday, six is such a big age to be. Like the cake, looks very colourful and you cant go wrong with lego. The ducks are great bright colours, I miss my bath, only got a shower here

  17. I used to love going to yoga. The best sessions I had were in Barbados, very uplifting and energising.

  18. You're allowed to snivel in a bath sometimes feeling sorry for yourself, and you're always right but some people don't know the success criteria for that judgement ;-)

    Thanks for linking up to Project 365, new linky live from 9pm tonight.

  19. wow what a week! that cake looks amazing and we are all allowed days feeling like that!

    sorry for the delay in getting round #365 x


I appreciate all comments, thank you! x x
