Give-away: Putting Alice Back Together

    To make a crappy day better, I ignore the housework and all the other things we all have on our plate and head outside with the children. I sit and read to them or just allow them to play on or around me. Nothing nicer than their laughter!

    I read a good book and listen to some soothing music.

    I’m really lucky as I’m a mum and in my spare time I work in a preschool so I agree with Kathy – there’s not too much that silly-giggly childrens laughter won’t make you smile through.

    It might sound a bit silly, but I watch a Studio Ghibli movie like Howl’s Moving Castle or Kiki’s Delivery Service. They’re such wonderful movies I’m usually back to my cheerfyl self about 10 minutes in. What’s funny is I just finished watching one.

    I try to find the brighter side of a crappy day! Like what have I learnt from this bad experience and how can I use it in the future! A bit like the glass is half full not half empty!

    Retail therapy seems to set it right. Or browsing through a brick and mortar bookstore and immersing myself into a book in the corner and then treating myself with some sweet treats 😉 Definitely puts back the sunshine into the grey, cloudy day.

    I bake. Nothing like spending time in the kitchen with my little boys. 🙂

    I think about my next run and how many seconds I can try to shave off my PB. I’m 46 and started jogging in February, having not run since being a 12 year old. My times are beyond pathetic but improvements always make my day brighter.

    Any day becomes brighter with hugs and kisses from my girls and when we all snuggle down together and read books
