Kiss It Better


Aloha Sprinklerinos,

Today has been one of those days. The kind where everything you touch crumbles and nothing will go right. Your hopes are dashed and you are left, sat in front of the One Show, eating Pizza Hut and wishing you'd ordered Dominos instead.

(Who doesn't love a grainy instagram picture of themselves looking a) overconfident and b) mental?)

I'm supposed to be doing highly grown up things tonight (no, not that you filthy minx), like setting up my printer, cleaning my tip of a dining room, planning upcoming videos/blogs, sorting our taxes and all that boring junk that I can't even bring myself to finish listing.

Instead, I'm going to sit here, on my bathroom floor, waiting for a hot bubble bath to run, brush my teeth (goodbye all traces of pizza sin), and read a book.

Yes tomorrow Baby Glitter will still have a cold and will be as clingy as ever, the taxes will still require me to stare confusedly at them and my house will still look like a carboot sale threw up, but I don't care. I'm a woman on the brink and I need someone to say, "It's OK Louise, don't sweat the small stuff".

For the most part, I feel incredibly blessed, but just today, please can I wallow in bleaurgh-ness? I'm sorry to not be Mrs Chirp, she'll be back tomorrow. If you have any requests for blog posts (baby/beauty/other), please do let me know and I shall make you wish my command.

Right now though, my bath is ready and my book is calling.

Toodlepip!

  2. Aw Louise, it's not like you to feel like this! i know we all have our bad days, but they're once in a while so dont let them bring you down! I love cleaning, call me weird. I love to open the windows, put some music on, tie my hair back and get stuck in! Of course, you have to stop for a tea break ;) You looked lovely in this picture, Xxx Daisy

  3. Aww Louise just relax. Everything can go away till you have done pampering yourself.
    Everyone needs a little break at some point!

  13. Oh Louise, you don't need to apologize if you have a bad day! It's perfectly normal, it happens to everyone. Nobody is perfect and once in a while we all need to take a moment for ourselves, put everthing aside and just relax! I hope you feel better tomorrow :)

  16. I'm a relatively new member of your blog (and a blogging noob myself), but I must say it is FABULOUS!
    You're stunning, Louise, and seem super duper lovely. Enjoy your relaxing bubble bath and soak the cares away. :]

  18. It's OK Louise, don't sweat the small stuff :)
    Your hair looks amazing ombred and curly! I keep seeing so many pictures of people with gorgeous long hair which makes me want to grow mine, but I know once I grow it I'll probably get sick of it and cut it all off again. Grrrr!
    Enjoy your bath - they're the best things to chill you down xx

  32. You look lovely in the pic m'dear so take that as a great big positive, cherish the shitty pizza and enjoy the lovely bath... taxes and dining rooms and printers will still be there tomorrow.. xxx

  33. You don't always to be chirpy and happy !It's alright to procrastinate, but doing a couple of things one at a time is a lot better than doing nothing at all! That's what I personally do, even though I'm OCD, I still have the days where I barely feel like making my bed !
    So don't worry, don't stress out. You're a mum, you're a blogger, a wife, a daughter, but most of all, you're human. So, RELAX, TAKE IT EASYYYY (8) <- Cheesy Mika song right there :D x

  34. It's OK Louise, don't sweat the small stuff :)
    Bubble baths, Chocolate and a book and you time is always the answer <3

  35. From experience i can tell you that a bath will fix just about anything, that and a nap. Poor baby glitter, i was at the doctor for my own cold yesterday and there were two babies there with colds as well.. there parents had a laugh because even though im almost 20 i also needed my mom to take care of me.. and fill out my papers! hah im so useless when im sick. I hope she gets better and i hope your luck gets better :)

  36. Everyone needs time to relax and just shut out the craziness of every day life. You don't need to apolgize to anyone! Just enjoy your book and make the most of your alone time!

    ReplyDelete
  37. We all have those days, Louise. Just take a step back and think about how blessed, happy and lucky you are to have the life you live!! We are all always here for you and I know that tomorrow will be a better day!

  38. It's okay Louise everyone needs a break once in a while but my favourite posts/videos of you have to be when you're just talking and being yourself. I love watching you and Darcy together, it just puts a smile on my face. :)

  61. I think Dominoes is the ultimate pizza place. I'm always disappointed by Pizza Hut, Pizza Express, Papa Johns or any other pizza place! x

  62. Don't beat yourself too much! you are doing a fabulous job caring for your wonderfully adorable baby, blog, home and life!!! You're wonderful and remember, it's totally okay to give yourself a break and be okay.

  63. Totally get what you mean... today has been sunny and lovely, and I had nothing to do... so I went to Sainsbury's, bought bread, came home, and now I'm in a slump and avoiding uni work.
    Definitely will be indulging in a nice hot shower (*wish* we had baths in my uni halls!), chocolate and a lovely film tonight : )

  64. Hi Louise, I'm sorry to hear you have been feeling a bit low and not your usual bubbly happy self!

    Your you tube videos always cheer me up! I really hope you're feeling better now! :-)

    Chin up, you are an inspiration to alot of people and the video's about your Mum etc. really make me feel sad, she would be so proud, you're a lovely girl! My Mum was diagnosed with breast cancer and is doing well since she had the all clear, it's a horrible thing to happen. But I'm sure she is looking down on you and very very proud!

    And your hair looks lush in the photo!!

    I have just set up my own little blog and would love if you could check it out (as you are my fav bloggerino!!) haha. I have a big fat zero followers (which I don't mind) but would mean alot if you had a peek!

  67. Ok this is a few days late now, but yes it most definitely IS ok to have a few hours break every now and then - if not at least once a week. Life is a never ending to do list - especially for a busy lady and momma like yourself, and you deserve some time to just decompress and rejuvenate.

    I hope you enjoyed your relaxation and got to grips with those evil taxes afterwards! :) *huggles*

  68. I have spent the weekend wishing i ordered dominos! I live in the sticks so that isn't an option! I.NEED.DOMINOS.NOWWWW! Hope you've had a good weekend, hope you're back to your old cheerful self soon! xoxo
