It’s finally half term, which means a slightly less chaotic two weeks ahead. I am already enjoying the slightly later mornings and longer days which are lighter and brighter thanks to the clocks going forward. Yet life continues to move at a million miles an hour as the realisation that maternity leave is coming to an end and I still have about a gazillion things that I want to achieve and do before it does.
This week has thankfully had a much slower pace to it which I am feeling massively grateful for as well as:
#1 The start of half term which means no school run, some semblance of a lie in and lots of lovely days with the little ones. Yes two of them all day every day for two weeks is kind of scary, but its the best kind of scary.
#2 A lovely day out with the littles at the English National Trust Park, Morden Hall Park. A lovely walled park in the middle of South London that I’ve wanted to explore for a while, and when I saw the sun shining on Monday I knew it would be the perfect day to go.
#3 Surviving four days of solo parenting whilst the Mr was overseas for work. I say surviving, but we actually had three really nice days together with the little ones really well behaved and a real joy to be with.
#4 Although I am massively grateful that the Mr got back home yesterday because whilst its been lovely, I am exhausted of being “on” for four days solid. Single parents, how do you do it?!
#5 Being sent a Little Tikes trike for the little guy which I cant wait to get him in. He loves going outdoors and having a bit of a look around so I think he’ll love seeing the world from a whole new perspective.
#6 Lots of beautiful sunny days. A lovely sunny day always makes me feel so much happier and brighter, its amazing how much of a difference a little bit of sun can make!
#7 Finding a beautiful new shirt for myself in Zara. I love it and cant wait to wear it. I just need somewhere to wear it to now.
#8 Having amazing family that are able to step in and help with the little ones when I have job interviews and exciting blogging opportunities and events to go to.
What are you feeling grateful for this week? I’d love it if you shared it in the comments below.
