I’m so bad at this!!

Super hot day in Scotland , gym gear on, press play, it’s ten mins in and I’m struggling. Feel weak, sluggish and lack energy. More so it’s frustrating. Another failed session.

The perfect day.

The suns out and I’m spending as much time with the wee one as I can before the day is done. With continuous late shifts in work it’s been almost 4 days since I’ve seen him…..other than when he’s snoring his head off. Not the best photo, no filters, in the moment. Boys not camera. […]
