The Queen’s Birthday Long Weekend just passed us by, and I while I had no plans on doing much in the way of celebrating the Queen, I was in fact pretty keen on just doing as little as possible. Turns out, I need to work on the “go slow” concept – although not busy, busy, busy by any of my previous long-weekend standards, l kept busy enough to enjoy a few little adventures around home and the city, with my boys.
An impromptu Friday night saw my folks join us for dinner, followed by Saturday morning soccer for Giggles Magoo and then some serious play time around home. Saturday evening was an enjoyable evening of dinner, drinks and jokes at a friend’s place. Sunday morning was my first (trail) run in 3 weeks followed up with an afternoon at the footy with the kids (Go the Swannies), and finally, Monday was sleep-ins, big breakfasts, introducing trail runs with a certain younger sister and doing stuff around home…despite being rather settled into the finished parts of our new house, we still have heaps to unpack, so public holiday Monday was a delight in that I could get some of the clutter in its rightful place and clean some of the glorious windows we have.
While there wasn’t one great adventure to mark the Long Weekend, I am grateful for little adventures, and for toothy smiles from the boys, a re-connection with the outside through the trail runs and mostly, some downtime with Grimace. A glass of red together, on Monday evening was possibly the most delightful bit.
However you spent your weekend, whether it be long or short, I hope you had some re-connection time too. Connection is, after all, an asset of the modern life xx
