Ok… so I did eventually get out of bed – a little after 10am. A huge lie in for me. It was great… but then I was getting fidgety and wanted a shower. I didn’t resist all the jobs at hand… I did make a quick trip to the shops to stock up on milk. I wanted a cuppa! I popped into the library while I was there. Then I headed home and resumed my regime of relaxation… but not until I’d hung out the washing. It was a bright and sunny day how could a Mama resist getting on top of the washing?
Then I started some simple hooking while I put my feet up bathing in the autumn sun…
…all kinds of wonderful!
I did dabble in a little laundry - soaking a little doll that needed a good wash after being left outside in the rain.
Does it upset anyone else seeing her hanging by her hair on the line??? I find it very unsettling. Poor little darling.
All in all though I did pretty well at resisting all the chores that well, frankly, really need to be done. The relaxation and rest was needed more and I have to say that I am all the better for it.
After picking the kids up early from day care we all headed out to a cafe for chocolate milkshakes and a decaf cap.
I miss my beautiful babes so much. So lovely to spend an afternoon in the sun chatting about our days and do a little colouring too! Time to go slow. To enjoy each other. More time to just be.
