This past couple of weeks Lucas has developed the paddy, one minute everything is fine in his world and the next, maybe because the kitchen door is no longer open or because Postman Pat has stopped playing, he will throw himself to the floor. He has a little thrash around and cry then goes still and you can see him wondering why he put himself there and he pops his head up, says Hiya and continues as if nothing had happened. He’s also developed a horrible scream, it goes through me, it gives me a headache, I hope this one is a short phase.
So when D offered to take Lucas to the park so I could go back to bed, I happily obliged. I’m not one that can go back to sleep though, if I’ve got up with Lucas at 5.30 there’s no way I can settle back a couple of hours later. By then I feel like it’s the middle of the day so instead of sleeping, I ran a bath and had a relaxing soak.
I then made myself a nice hot Beanies coffee*, at the moment I am loving their Cookie Dough and Decaf Irish Cream flavours. At only 2 calories per cup and 100% sugar free they are the perfect guilt free treat. I sat down and enjoyed my coffee in silence with Jodi Picoult’s Leaving Time*. It’s been ages since I read a book and I love Jodi Picoult’s writing, she captivates me every time. I’m half way through it now and really wouldn’t do it justice so here is the blurb….
‘Jenna Metcalf was with her mother the night she disappeared, but she remembers nothing.
In the wake of those tragic events, she has lost not one parent, but two: her father is in an asylum, and now she lives with her grandmother – who finds it too painful to talk about what happened.
Ten years on, Jenna is the only one who still seems to care. And she is determined to seek the truth, no matter how shocking and life-changing it might be . . .’
The lovely people over at Beanies have offered to give away a jar of Decaf Irish Cream and a jar of Cookie Dough flavoured coffee so you can find your own time to relax and treat yourself. Enter below for the chance to win x
