Major cheat alert!!!!
I’m soooo behind, it’s been really tricky here so I’m going to massively cheat!
Day 25 something you made
Day 26 colour
Day 27 lunch
Day 28 light
Day 29 inside your fridge
Here we have a picture of inside my fridge, which also includes a ‘light’, lots of ‘colour’ a big white bowl of left over mashed potato that I ‘made’ and all the things we use to make the girls packed ‘lunch’!!
I do believe I’m now up to date!
No need to send food parcels, Mr online delivery is due tomorrow 🙂 #takingcare
(and yes they are left over Easter Eggs, and yes I know it’s December!)
Today is 24 of 31 of the #FO5photo challenge, today’s (actually yesterday’s but I’m playing catch up) theme is ‘Guilty Pleasure’.
I try really hard to indulge in this once a week, all in aid of ‘self care’ of course, it doesn’t always work out that way, morning meetings and appointments and ‘stuff to do’ often get in the way, but if I’m lucky, then I get to treat myself to this guilty pleasure………..
Sainsbury Cafe ‘scrambled eggs and bacon’ breakfast with a pot of Earl Grey!
Day 22 theme is ‘my shoes’.
I left my boots piled up on the lounge floor for all of friday evening hoping the cat would snuggle then like she usually does, thus providing me with a cute photo opportunity. But she didn’t, so instead here are mine and MrFO5’s shoes, chilling whilst the girls watched a cheesy magician at their autism play and stay club.
Day 23 theme is ‘Something old’.
I also considered a photo of MrFO5 for this one but decided to show you something not quite as old as him instead. This used to be the lamp besides my bed when I was a child, these days it gathers dust on a shelf in my bedroom, lampless but still loved!
Today is day 21, the theme for today is ‘Reflection’.
Been an awful day. My morning started with a tantrum from big girl before school.
Then a very draining meeting with EHC co-ordinater that involved me spending 2 hours telling her about all the awful things that big girl endured during her time living with her birth family, and then again in foster care, and then describing the effects that all this has had on her and in-turn the effects it has on all of the family. Thinking about, and talking about so much trauma and heartache is more draining that I thought.
Then tonight, after school, another 2 and half hour tantrum from her.
So this is my feeble contribution, the reflection of light on my chocolate (self care) wrapper………………
My tea tonight………. 😦
The theme for today is ‘someone you love’.
This was a no brainer for me, my mum of course, she is amazing!
I never knew her like this (taken by her friend before I was born), my earliest memories of my mum were her wearing skinny jeans, a head scarf, stripped shirt tied at the front and cleaning the windows whilst rocking it out to a bit of Meat Loaf………………………. 4 Kids later and almost 60 and she’s still this cool!
This photo was clearly not taken by me, I hadn’t even been considered at this point, never mind conceived! 🙂
Today’s photo challenge theme is ‘sweet’.
I went out for lunch with my friend today, all in aid of ‘self care’ of course! I ordered a huge slice of Lemon Meringue Pie, I was so excited that I forgot to take a photo, so this is one I stole off the internet! (cheating I know!)
It was just like this, but with a huge helping of squirty cream on the side!
It’s day 18 of the challenge and today’s theme is ‘something you bought’.
A couple of weeks ago I treated myself to this beautiful hand painted glass bowl. It serves no purpose, it doesn’t do anything or contain anything, but it does brighten up my day and make me smile so it was definitely a ‘self care’ purchase!
