How to stop procrastinating

Hey readers,

Sometimes I am guilty of procrastinating – where I want to put off things and makeup all the excuses under the sun just simple in order to not do the task. There may be many reasons why people procrastinate and it his hard work to change that mindset. So, here is some of my tips that have helped me to get in touch with motivation and get stuff done.

Write it down.

Sometimes, I have so many things I want to do that I simply get overwhelmed and don’t know what to do. Therefore, I have always found it good to start with writing down all the things I need to do. Then put them in order of importance and follow that list accordingly. It doesn’t matter if I don’t do all the things on the list, it is the starting of the tasks that are important. Once I have achieved this I can feel less dread and more inclination to carry on the next day and so on.

Smaller goals.

If you have one big goal a way to move forward is to break it down into more measurable chunks. Small steps lead to big things and knowing you have reached levels can spur you on to the end. Rather then simply seeing something big it can be better than to visualise and be inspired to get going on it.


Have a timetable that is split up into smaller times. For example, don’t just think about doing all the work in a three-hour block but maybe do one hour in the morning, one hour in the afternoon and one in the evening so it is broken up giving you that break. It is actually better to do work in smaller chunks throughout the day as your concentration will be better and then in turn production will be much better quality.


Sometimes, I go and change my environment to give me that fresh scenery to work in. I have worked in the library and been much more productive because of the people around and got more done when there are fewer distractions at home.

Buddy up.

working with someone else can be a real motivator as they kick you up the bum to get work done or the social pressure is much stronger there for willing to do the work rather than doing on your own and you use all the excuses inside your head. At least with someone else they can encourage you to do the work and challenge you if you are feeling like you have an excuse to step away from it.


We all know rewards can be a great way of achieving a goal because it gives that incentive to do that work. So, maybe have a reward chart that you can treat yourself to something small such as a hot chocolate or an episode of your favorite programme.

What kind of thing helps you get out of procrastinating?

Hey readers,

My word of the week is

because it has been coughs all round in my home and snot running down the face. I have struggled to function other then to think about sleep. Therefore, spending a lot for time at home and not doing much. Which I don’t mind as I am exhausted anyways!

In other news the car’s bumper needed changing as someone bumped into it by accident. So, that has taken some work, joy!

At least normal rountine has resumed and though my youngest has had three days off from nursery due to a boiler breaking down, it feels good to be back to normal. It has been lovely also to see the sunshine.

Hope you have had a good week.

Periods after pregnancy

Hey readers,

I am on my period and it sucks physically and mentally. Each month it feels like hell!

Ever since I gave birth something happened to my biology and it impacts my emotional responses when I have a period each month.

I feel like it is a battle mentally, I am a washed with dread. I am terrified and on edge. I feel like I am literally on eggshells, I break down at the slightest thing. I feel fragile and terrified. My adrenalin is so high and I can’t sleep which doesn’t add to the mix.
I am raging and want someone to give me concrete answers to such grey questions. I feel like I will always be like This and I get so angry because I want to run away from myself but I am stuck with me. I hate it and I get so jealous of the husband who is so carefree and relaxed. I hate anxiety, the way it torments me and makes my thoughts going into a fast racing mode. Why do I have to be like this, every fucking month? I hate it and I feel rubbish. I am non-stop shaking inside and out. I know the mood swings have got worse since I entered motherhood. Every month I am like this, there are times when I wish I could just rip out my womb!


If the emotional side of having a period was enough to deal with there is the pain that comes along with it too and again it is considerably worse. Before my first pregnancy, I would suffer mild cramps that I could manage with some paracetamol. Now, I want to cry from the pain in my stomach. I feel like someone has punched me in the vagina and every time I have a poo it reminds me of being in labour and pushing out a baby. I can’t lift my sons up as my back during the time of the month is so achy and feels like I have spent all day bend over when in reality I have done sod all.

I just needed to rant as I have had these for six years and if sucks being female sometimes.

Reasons why you should love winter

Hey readers,

So it is currently pouring down and the wind is blasting my hair around. It has been like this for several days and it can get more down with all the greyness. So, I thought it would be good to write some positive reasons why Winter is actually not that bad and there are some positives to this miserable and grey season.

Let’s start off with food – not any old food but comfort food. The yummy stuff full of carbs and gravy to warm up your belly followed by sponge pudding and custard.

A valid reason to stay indoors when it is so cold and wet. You can even be forgiven for wearing your pj’s on all day. You can dose about have a duvet day, keep warm and watch as much trash as humanly possible.

If you are feeling cold a perfect way to warm up is to have a hot bath and getting all warm with fleece PJ’s.

People, Woman, Girl, Bath, Tub, Reading

Blankets and hot bottles rule when it is so cold and all you can hear is the wind whistling and battering the windows. I will be honest with one of my favourite things to do is to fall asleep with the sound of rain hitting my window. It is so soothing and it makes me feel grateful that I am a safe in my warm home.

That being said you can not enjoy a winter walk in woodland and then know that you can come home to get warm again.

Loads of cuddles keeping you nice and warm, safe from any harm and lazying around is the best knowing that you can just relax at home with your loved ones.

Hot chocolate is the desired beverage – perfect to warm your cockles and feel all cozy inside.

What kind of things do you like about Winter?

Hey readers,

My word of the week is:

Sometimes, if I am honest I can get overwhelmed before the half term as the prospect of having two boisterous children during the holidays fills me with dread. However, I have to say it hasn’t been too bad. The boys love playing together and not too many meltdowns. I have been relaxed and that makes a huge difference.

My eldest has made me his first ever cup of tea. He was so pleased because he has been so desperate to make me one. It was a lovely little surprise. Don’t worry he didn’t just do it himself but with assistance from his daddy. Then he was like I want to get a plain cup and he wanted to write with the sharpie pens ‘I love mummy and daddy’ and it was like an awwww moment, bless him!

Hope you have had a good week,

Problems only bigger boobed women will understand

Hey readers,

I have a confession to make I hate my breasts because I am a size DD and the right pain in the back and not the fact that buying bras is a breast ache and having to get a bloody loan out to pain for them.

Here are my reasons why big boobs suck!

Bra, High Heels, Red, Fashion, Female

1) They give you a backache and that kills, especially when you have to carry a child to bed in the evenings.

2) They are harder to the finder and then become more expensive.

3) No way would I suit a bralette, which is a shame as they are so God damn pretty.

3) I can’t run As the boobies bounce everywhere so I may as well kiss goodbye if I want to run after that bus and accept that I am going to be late 😉

4) The prospect of going bra shopping sends you into a sweat and there is nothing worse than trying to find a size that actually fits you in a ‘normal’ shop.

5) You dream of having the funds for breast reduction.

6) The pain of a button shirt and constantly having a gap there. You can’t go out in public because you are scared your pop open.

Green, Grass, Laundry, Bra, Underwear

7) What do my toes look like?!

8) You thought it was bad enough until you get pregnant and then they grow some.

9) In the summer you have under breast sweat….joy!

10) I hate having to wear a swimsuit because it never fits right and has a major fear of my boobies pop out in the swimming baths.

11) Can never wear anything backlace.

12) Can’t wear low tops without looking like a s**t.

13) Never sleep on my stomach, I would never get any rest but pain.

14) I can never wear long necklaces because they make me feel self-conscious and worry they may go right in my cleavage.
