Sunshine = Smiles!

Isn't it mad how a little bit of sunshine can completely change your mood and outlook?

This week has been the first week of sunshine this year, and the first day it shone I, amongst everyone else in Sussex no doubt, spent most of it outside and in a very good mood.

Just feeling that warmth on your face and waking up to gorgeous sunshine streaming in through the windows, as opposed to having to switch your lights on in the morning to avoid tripping over three thousand toys that have been left in your path to the toilet, is amazing.

We've been out and about far more this week than we probably have been all winter, - I think I'm like an animal that enjoys hibernating in the winter, and then when it gets warm I like to start interacting with other humans!

We've had play dates in parks and friends gardens, big walks through forests, jumping in muddy puddles and we swapped the indoor play groups for walks along the coast and beach.

I'm starting to get back to the old, happier me, that was very much hidden away for the last couple of years due to issues with 'sperm donor'. Thankfully I've come through it all a lot stronger, wiser and secure in the knowledge that I'm doing the very best for my beautiful son. I'm even enjoying getting back into the dating game and getting to just be 'Claire' for those nights!

Spending time outside in the beautiful parks and on the beach has given me time to reflect and has helped me put things to a close. It's also given us some more lovely, fun memories to add to our life story memory boxes!

  3. It's amazing how a wee change in the weather can change our outlook on things! We've been to the park almost every day the last week, and enjoyed some great walks around London. Just need to get a bit fitter!

  12. Sun really is the best medicine. I get winter blues badly so I am loving all the sunshine and blue skies. It helps look at the world brighter and happier. I am glad you are getting back to your own self. Sometimes we just have to change our perspectives on the whole situation from the outside and look again. #theprompt

  13. Where I live it doesn't get tooo cold but it does rain a lot and sometimes it will rain for a week straight! So when that sun comes out I just soak it up. It makes me feel like a human again - truly is a wonderful thing!

  14. I love the first lot of sun after winter. Not only because I can finally catch up on my back log of washing that multiples nightly but because I can get out in my garden and just be outside with my kids :)
