It’s Wednesday, I’ve just dropped the kids at school/preschool and so I find myself with a spare 15 minutes. Before I know it, my car has sped around the corner and parked, my legs have hiked me up the hill and without conscious effort, I’ve got coffee and the world’s prettiest granola bowl.
The last few weeks have been lovely as school was out for the winter. Grimace and the boys managed a lovely balance of adventures and home time, all the while I was resting up thanks to an awkward mishap. I’ll spare you the details, but one greenstick and an ambo ride meant I was destined for no where, but the couch. And I’m not going to lie to you, I enjoyed it immensely. Sure, the pain and sleepness nights weren’t great, but I revelled in the lack of responsibility. I helped my body to heal with rest, reading and physio exercises. Always looking for the positives in any experience, I found relaxation.
As the two weeks wore on, Grimace’s holidays wore out and before I knew it, I was back to family responsibility. Hello chores, shoelaces and snotty noses. But, also cuddles, lunchboxes and playing. So it’s not all bad.
But, eating my granola and drinking my coffee this morning has awoken that same carefree state I had on the couch, if only for a moment. You see, I’ve remembered the washing to hang out, the dishwasher to unstack and all those errands I have on the always-full To Do List.
Happy Wednesday x
