My very own website!!! Yikes!
In my calendar of post plans, I had noted down to write an Easter holiday bucket list. I love bucket lists as they are a great way to focus on things to achieve within a limited time period.
However, the vertigo is still restricting me a lot (will it ever go?!) so trying to plan ahead is a bit pointless.
Instead I have decided to write about the things I normally take for granted and I bet you don’t appreciate them either!
Popping out of the house. Nothing mega but being able to nip out to the bin, walk the 2 minutes to my parents’ house, doing the school run or a dash to the shops. These have all been almost impossible for the last 4 weeks. I want to bask in the sunshine or feel the rain on my face.
Supermarket shopping. I put this off so much because I dread having to take the children and the whole thing taking a lot longer than any of us want! But I love mooching around the shops, finding great deals and being tempted by new things.
Playground. Anya always wants to go the playground and I put her off a lot of the time because it is tricky trying to keep an eye on 3 of them at once. I want to take the children out on their bikes and scooters. I want to play with the drone. I want to have picnics
Driving. I am not the biggest fan of driving (well actually, it is the parking at the other end that I worry about most!) but I didn’t realise how much I rely on my car and what freedom it gives me.
Cooking and baking. Our poor family has relied on the freezer for quick meals that don’t require me to be stood in the kitchen for very long 🙁
Feeling well. This sounds like a silly thing but we can only really enjoy feeling well after we have been ill and we soon forget how good it feels! I promise myself during each illness that I will relish the feeling of wellness but I forget so quickly and focus on how tired or busy I am instead. Not this time!
These are the little things in life that I know I take for granted but am determined to appreciate as soon as I can!
