No Blend Coconut Rough Bliss Balls

No Blend Coconut Rough Bliss Balls

I have this day every 28 days when I just want to be alone.

But I live with four other people.

I live with three precious little people who want to be over me and on me and with me.

And 99.9% of the time I wouldn’t have it any other way.

But on this one day in my 28 days I crave space and silence and I’m no fun to be around.

On this one day there is no spring in my step and hearing the word Mum at least five times a minute makes my head hurt.

On this day I just want to potter and take photos and maybe lie in the sun.

I have no patience for stories and fights and games.

I’m a grump.

And yet as I’m surviving my day and driving myself crazy, I know that if they weren’t here I would be missing them. I would be lonely. I would be complaining about them not being around!

Maybe it’s a day when the positive light won’t shine no matter what I do and maybe I just need to roll with it knowing how quickly it will pass.

Maybe I just need to enjoy my loaded smoothies, lie around and cuddle my babies and try not to lose it with my husband for eating the last No Blend Coconut Rough Bliss Ball.

    Oh yes I too know that one day a month very very well! I always feel so guilty for days afterwards for being so grumpy at them but it’s difficult for our bodies too… the way I see it is if we have 12 (13?) bad days a year then that’s ok. Hope you feel better tomorrow xx


    Any suggestions for if I were to want to add protein powder what would I need to reduce or omit so that they didn’t become too dry?

    • Hmm, I would just try one of the protein balls on the site. Have you seen those? Sorry I haven’t been more help. If you try it out be sure to let me know how you go. x
