This week we’re going to create fun and meaningful experiences for ourselves and our families.
Last week was lovely. I got stuck in with a new VA client. I got some more paid work in after a long period of what felt like next to nothing. It was my sisters birthday and Fathers Day, so I spent plenty of time with the family. And yet, I spent a lot of the week feeling lonely and undervalued. Read on and watch the video to find out why and what I did about it.

Three things that made me happy: Going to see Guns 2 Roses with my sister for her birthday, having a lovely Fathers Day meal with my Dad and the kids, and getting to my local home ed group. I haven’t managed to make it in what seems like ages, and it was just what I needed!
What challenged me and what I did about it: I’ve been feeling a lack of connection with people lately and it has been getting me down. I’m usually OK with the fact that nobody ever seems to initiate contact with me IRL (maybe everyone thinks I’m really busy, which is true, but I would still make time to take a phone call or have a cwtch with the OH). It’s made me realise that, once again, I am too reliant on other people. I need to show myself more affection. I need to seek more connection. If that results in the people I care about feeling able to approach me more, then great: if not, I still have me!
What I’m looking forward to this week: Planning some collaborations with a Nicky from Spinnin Plates and a few others, sinking my teeth into some voluntary work I’ve been putting off, and spending a week being as physically active as I can manage (very much needed as I’ve been feeling the lack of exercise recently). Oh, and my first ever guest on this week’s The News In Green! 😀
This week, focus on: I want you to create, or plan, meaningful and fun experiences for yourself and your loved ones. Whether it’s something simple like a walk in the woods or something
