Life Lately // Stress and Worry

Monday, July 11, 2016

I've felt so stressed recently. We're having a lot of issue with getting Alice into a school we like. It's hard that everyone else we know got their first choice and are happily buying uniform and starting to get their children ready... we still don't know if we'll even get a school yet! I feel so angry and annoyed and upset about it all that I think it's having an effect on my health now. I feel so down and ill and... just tired of it all.

On top of that, the children have both been so difficult recently. Alice is really pushing her boundaries and Thomas has started playing up at bedtime. I just don't know what's going on! They were both so good and now they just feel un-managable at times. I'm hoping this is just a stage.

Sorry for the negativity. Sometimes it's good to just get it all out of your head and written down I guess. I have a white board in the kitchen and I've written down everything that we need to do and remember over the next 2 weeks. It's sort of made me feel better to get it all out my head and in front of me. I feel like I can manage it all better and cross things off as we do them, which I'm sure will make me feel relieved.

Sometimes being an adult is just... so hard. And draining! Phew!


  1. Ah I'm sorry you've been having a hard time. I think things just get overwhelming sometimes and it definitely helps to get things out of your head and onto paper/whiteboard/the internet!! I hope things improve for you soon xx


I love hearing your thoughts... (And don't forget to follow me too!)
