    The handmaidens tale?
    Today I aim to be the best person I can be.
    That mean that yesterday or tomorrow I might be a better person,
    but today's best is more than good enough for today.

    I've struggled the last few days but I think the heat is affecting me & I am due a parenting recharge on Friday lol. I'm trying to take things steady, my crochet is out. I'm just about to watch a film on Netflix about the Holocaust. I was going to cancel Netflix but there seems to be some good programmes for the girls (and of course it is nearly the school holidays)

    I love Netflix, theres always something I would watch on it
    Sometimes the best thing you can do is not think, not wonder, not imagine, not obsess. Just breathe and have faith that everything will work out for the best.

    I’m feeling overwhelmed this afternoon.....There is a totally crazy school week ahead.
    My youngest is in year 6 so finishes on Friday (many activities have been squeezed into the timetable for this last week) My ex will be attending the leaver’s ceremony on Friday. My Mum will be there with me which is good as I know it is going to be tough. All memories of the times the school have helped me through, especially when I was terribly ill prior to going into hospital.
    My eldest is going to London on Wednesday for 2 nights. And then it is the school holidays for her too. I know that it will be lovely having them off school but it always uses lots of spoons. It is probably just the heat but things are getting to me. So glad, as always, for you guys being there. x
