So, I survived my first full week at work since 2008!
Well, I say full, the Bank Holiday Monday made it a nice way to ease back into it.
The family unit is growing stronger and working as a team to make it work.
I managed to take a picture everyday too.
I fear this may slip in the future.
I attempted to put work out of my mind for this second half of the holidays, at least during the waking hours.
Sleep was another matter.
I had no control over the constant dreams and panic that sets in overnight.
Luckily the daytimes were sunny although we decided to add some extra stress to our lives!
We got out into the sunshine today and explored one of our favourite places, Stourhead.
The children had an Easter trail to complete whilst I just wanted fresh air and some space to stretch my legs.
We retraced paths that we had trodden time and time again.
And found new paths to take to explore new things.
Followed the clues, answered the questions and discovered new paths.
Saw the obelisk in the distance and I wondered why, during all our previous visits, we had never ventured up to it before?
Took in the calm of the lake surrounded by grottos and temples.
Scrambled up through the rocks leading to the Temple of Apollo and found my favourite view.
Rolled down slightly smaller hills.
And finally the children claimed their much deserved prize.
Yes, it's the holidays!
Although our holidays are of the 'staycation' variety due to the husband's business.
I'm trying not to countdown the days to the *whispers* full time work.
Instead I plan to chill and enjoy.
