Each Friday, I would like to share a word of the week with you. Something that summarises what I’ve been up to, how I’ve felt and how life is generally going. I’d love if you’d share your own in the comments or even join in with the link up if you are a blogger. (You can find the details at the bottom of this post.) It can be so therapeutic to reflect on what’s been happening, good or bad. It will be nice to look back on these posts in the future too!
This week I have chosen the word Comfort
With the weather taking a big turn this past week, I was worried my mood would too. We’ve been so lucky with the warm sunshine over the last month or two and now all of a sudden we’re back to rain and the cold. Thankfully, I am a lover of all things comfort and I’ve actually enjoyed the change.
To add to the comfort, I’ve been living in comfy clothes. Few things form my normal wardrobe fit over my bump now as I’m 19 weeks today. I have ordered a couple of items, including some maternity jeans and a few t-shirts, to help. Let’s be honest though, there is nothing more comfortable than baggy clothes made of cotton. Especially when we are spending so much time at home. I have pretty much been living in my joggy bottoms and jumpers!
The comfy clothes have also been necessary for warmth as my favourite place to sit and work is the conservatory. It’s so nice to be able to look across the garden while I write and draw. The only problem is that with so many windows, the room can get quite cold so I’ve had to wrap up a bit more over the last few days. I’ve even had the (fake) fire on a couple of times this week. The ultimate comfort!
Another thing which has brought me comfort this week is Christmas scented candles. I’m sorry if that word offends anyone in the month of June, I know it’s rather early. I just really love that time of year and like to bring out the festive scents every so often. I don’t know about everyone else, but the challenges of being away from family have hit me a little harder this week. Small things like candles in a favourite scent really help me to handle my mental health and get through tough days.
With the weather set to continue like this into the weekend, I think I’ll be spending some time baking too. A banana bread most likely, what else? That will be the perfect comfort to round off the week!
