From most of the posts in my newsfeed I should be jumping up and down with joy but instead I'm feeling sad. I am going to really miss my two little pixies. I know I will actually be able to get some creating done which I'm looking forward to but I will miss their energy for life and just spending time with them that isn't rushed.
Once they are at school the days go too quickly - it's about rushing and routine - get up, have breakfast, clean teeth, wash, get dressed, reading, cuddles off to school (obviously there was a lot of nagging and shouting mixed in with all that).
Then after school it's homework, cooking dinner, eating, a bit of play and then the bedtime routine (again insert a lot of nagging and shouting) - but all dictated by routine and the clock.
When they are in term time the days seem to whizz by and my babies grow up too fast, whereas when it's the holidays they are mine and I am theirs and we can just be together and have fun (with lots of cuddles thrown in). Don't get me wrong, there were days in the holidays when I was pulling my hair out but mostly they were good. I love the simple things like watching my pixies make friends with snails, running around the woods chasing zombies or looking for fairies. Snuggling up watching movies, having tea parties and carpet picnics. This holiday we had some great laughs having Nerf Wars, although I am definitely not as young as I used to be!
I am going to enjoy being able to get some work done but can't wait until school holidays are here again!!
Today the house seems very quiet so I better put some loud music on and get on with some of this work I need to do. Once I have caught up on orders I need to spend some time updating the website and I think a new look may be in order.
Have a lovely day everyone.
