Grateful and Loving

This week has been rather ho-hum. We have been busy, I have been overwhelmed and oh so tired.

I'm mainly tired because I can't sleep when B is on night shift. Strange since he has been doing the same roster for the last 5 and a half years, so you would think that I would be used to it by now. But no, if I hear a strange noise, or notice something odd going on outside, I barely sleep for the rest of the night. The dogs always seem to bark more when he isn't home too, just to add to my paranoia!

So today I am grateful for awesome mags where I can look at the awesome pictures and dream of craftiness that I will indulge in when I have the time and energy to do so.


And I am loving trashy TV where I don't have to think about anything and just laugh at the absurdity of it all. Hello The Real Housewives et al.

What are you loving this week? 

What are you grateful for?

I am killing two birds with one stone (bad analogy to go with this, post isn't it?) and linking up with Paisley Jade for Things I'm Loving and Maxabella Loves for I'm grateful for.

  4. My week was soooo similar, including the sleeplessness. I am woken by one child or another (or another) and then I cannot get myself back to sleep. Makes everything a bit ho humsville, doesn't it?! Hope the trashy does the trick and next week is looking up for you. x

  5. I had a night to myself once, with kids and husband gone to Grandma's. I thought I'd love it, but it was scary! I can totally understand why you couldn't sleep.

  8. I love a magazine sesh'!

    Ever since I found blogging, I found I've read less trashy mags, (the NW, new idea, woman's day etc.)

    But I still LOVE the home magazines (house & garden, real living, country home etc.)

    It just takes me away to another place :)

    P.S I hear so much about this frankie mag. What is it?? xx

  10. Oh man, the joys of reality TV. I absolutely love the Housewives (of any place) and the Kardashians. I miss Wife Swap, that hasn't been on in a long time! :(

  11. Oh yes, Real Housewives fan here! This season of New York is making my head spin though - I tape them and watch them when I'm in the right head space to absorb their craziness! x

  15. Amen to trashy tv! (Kardashians should be filmed 24/7 for my personal viewing pleasure)

    Am also a fellow light sleeper and sufferer of many nights home alone due to husbands schedule. Throw in a wakeful child and I truly feel your tiredness pain!
