School Ends Today

My kids finish school and I am proud as punch of them for making the most of this time at home, for keeping in touch with friends and family, working hard and independently and exercising daily. I have a special tea and a little letter written for them both,ssssh.

Create Your Own Calm is Out Today

My books out today! My brand new book Create Your Own Calm is published today ahead of schedule as an ebook. It is packed with activities to help anxious kids and is absolutely timely for the fall out from lockdown. I do hope it helps and I am excited to see it out there in the world. (Harper Collins will publish the paperback in September)



Walking – One of my fave frugal happy things

I have spent this morning walking with my lovely pal Catherine. Such a treat a proper morning off working and not a penny spent ( well she did buy me a cup of tea)

I am lost in a good book at the moment and an going to treat myself to an hour in my favourite armchair reading today. The book was a gift form a lovely friend Dorkymum and it’s beautiful. It is also filled with poems from Dorkymum (AKA Ruth!) husband the acclaimed beat poet Young Dawkins. It is a treasure.



More frugal happy things – Bubble Baths

I am planning the biggest longest warmest bubble bath tonight to celebrate school being out and to relieve my sore muscles from my super long walk and to read my book. Always love a good bath, do you?



So they are my 5 frugal HAPPY things from today – over to you. I hope you have had a happy and thrifty week.

    Huge congratulations on the book release! I have an anxious & sometimes angry child, who has lots of worries for her young age, and it sounds brilliant! I love that you have written letters to your children too, that’s so thoughtful. I think its the little things like that they will remember when they are older. We also had a special tea to celebrate our end of term, it was nice to mark the occasion, even though they haven’t been since March!
