As a parent, it’s always important to remember that you are a person still! It can be easy to forget all the things you used to do before you had your children, and it’s important to go back to these things every once in a while to give you a much needed break from the hard work that raising children can be! This is something I learnt the hard way this year and made some big decisions on getting some me time.
Let’s face it; no parent is as bothered about their fashion choices as they were pre-parenthood. Nonetheless, there’s no doubt that looking great still makes us feel great.

As mentioned last week, I flopped out of doing exercise a little bit (look at that dusty kettle bell) and now I am trying to get back in the game. For one it makes me feel energised doing all this exercise and two, it makes my back ache less. Strangely. I am starting up on the HIT sessions again and I need to do four sessions before next Tuesday.
Inspired by lovely bloggers around me and getting more advanced in the world of iMovie I thought I would up my game. So I’ve been filming our ordinary moments all week. It’s a week in the life of us, The Constants. But also, a working mum. I work full time. This is what an ordinary week is like…
