I am desperately trying not to be negative at these points in the year.
The work/life balance is evening out with careful planning and I am focussing on me on my days off.
Project 365 #9
Nothing like leaving things to the last minute! The boy worked really hard on his homework project today making a book about Emperor Penguins and Magpies. I don't mind homework - that they enjoy.
The children were still off due to a training day but they busied themselves. In between the rain showers I nipped into the garden to have a play with the shutter speed on my camera. I was pretty pleased with this one of the kiddos' wind twirly thingy!
The children were back to school today. Determined to make the most of it I got my school work out of the way then grabbed the camera again. Today I played around with the aperture - I'm a big fan of this setting. The primroses were looking rather beautiful. You can see more of my back garden here.
Back to work for me today which meant a night of restless sleep with anxiety dreams and waking up way earlier than needed - why is that? Back home I returned to more pots of Spring bulbs including this dainty Lily of the Valley for Grandma.
When I got in tonight the boy was busy with his Lego in the conservatory. Battle scenes were set up with Obi Wan Kenobi at the helm.
Friday has become 'easy tea' night - or mummy's shattered and can't be arsed to cook anything half decent. Tonight's culinary offering was spaghetti hoops on toast. Yum.
The husband is in London with his brother so I took the kiddos to see Grandma and Granddad. Living so close to the canal is a real bonus - and having them closer again definitely helps. This part of the canal is quieter than Bradford-on-Avon but still beautiful. I love the old road bridges passing over the water.
