Great post. I would like to get into healthier habits, and reward myself with things in the evening that aren’t good/ wine and make me feel better than zonking out in front of the tv... more baths, reading for longer, not just ten mins from getting into bed, thinking time etc.
Finish my second book and be a more present parent... often I’m scheduling appointments/ feeling annoyed about trying to access professional help kids are entitled to. The most helpful thing for them is completely present parents and I need to remind me of that.
Other is to find time for mr monkey and I to have quality time. We are both good at making sure we still do our solo thing... but with 4 the number of baby sitters are less regular and we need our time too!
I should’ve asked for one of those gizmos that freeze time for Christmas 😜

Here goes! Finish my novel. Eat our own vegetables from the new allotment, get fitter, go out more in the evenings with Mr M. I also want to try and be happier, less stressed by the children, perhaps accept I am not 'wonder mum' and can only do so much and the rest will just have to sort itself out and I need to be more ' accepting' when it all goes wrong! Have more fun, get out of my comfort zone...perhaps we should all read these posts in a years time and score ourselves out of 10!
