How on earth are we in the second half of the year already? Since I got back from Blogtacular in June I seem to have hit the ground running. I returned brimming with ideas yet I haven’t even had chance to go over my notes yet! We’re half way through the kids holidays and the novelty of spending 24 hours a day with my feisty girl is quickly wearing off. And it means no time for blogging; I am soooooooo behind. So here’s a quick update from The Nest…
The first week of the kids holidays was pretty horrific when it came to Madeleine’s behaviour. She was whiney and lashing out and generally being a horror. But I soon realised why. We had fallen off the sugar wagon and she was eating far too much crap. As was I! So we went on a sugar detox and within a couple of days my sweet (excuse the pun!) girl had returned. Don’t get me wrong she still has her stroppy moments – she’s three going on thirteen – but there was no more tired whinging throughout the day or constant demands for chocolate. And when she did ask for something and I said no she’d reply with a sweet “Ok, Mummy”. I know, weird, right?!
As you know I am constantly battling my sugar addiction but I am pleased to say that we are currently 3 weeks clean! We have had the odd bit of cake when we’ve been out but I’ve managed to keep it at that & not go on a binge. I love how much better I feel when I’ve kicked the evil white stuff. I’ve got more energy, more patience, better skin and, most importantly, a better behaved child. Man, that sugar crash is a bitch!
