The highs and lows of working from home

This morning was Libby’s nursery morning. She just goes once a week because we are lucky enough to have one of the best nurseries in the country nearby so we decided to make the most of it. She goes horse riding, paints and does crafts and other exciting things and Lia gets a bit of attention from me.  I got some work done while Lia had a nap, then when she got up we made the most of the sunshine and headed to the Malvern  hills with Pluto for a walk.  Being on the hills in the sunshine made me…

Our Thursday Photo #36

Well, as usual it has been a busy week in the Plutonium Sox household. Last Friday marked the end of our fabulous holiday, so we pretended we were still on holiday over the weekend and continued in the vein of swimming every day and eating rubbish.  So, on Monday it was time to get back to reality. Hubby went back to work and I started on a bit of a health kick. Mercifully, I know my limits so I’m only being healthy on weekdays and we’re back to drinking and eating rubbish at weekends. Roll on tomorrow.  Yesterday, we had…

Wow, what a day

Today has been another hectic yet fantastic day at Bluestone National Park. We started off the morning with messy play for both children. Of course, the idea was that they could get messy. All the children got messy, within reason. Only my two took it to this extreme.  The messy play was great, everything was edible and there were a variety of things to do including painting, non-Newtonian fluid (cornflower solution), glittery things, jelly, custard and water.  Libby took it all very seriously, as she tends to do.  Lia also had fun, causing both mess and chaos in her own…

We’re on an adventure!

This morning, for the first time since having Lia last May, I had three whole hours to myself when I wasn’t working. As you can imagine, I used my time wisely, enjoying a spa at the Bluestone National Park resort in Pembrokeshire.  On arrival, I had a short consultation before being given a luxurious robe, towel and slippers and being shown to the changing rooms to get into my swimming costume to use the spa facilities.  The changing rooms were so luxurious I had to take a quick photo. I spent an incredibly relaxing two hours in the two steam…
