After the last two weeks of school holidays, with our daily life being led by the needs and wants of four children, it was refreshing to spend a few child free hours this morning.
I dropped off Jazz to play with her Auntie and cousins, and spent a little time just wandering. I looked at what ever I wanted, for as long as I wanted. I didn't need to constantly ensure that little fingers were safe, or supply a constant stream of snacks. I didn't have to think of anything but the right here and now.
I ended up with a bag stuffed full of loveliness - all with plans for a new life over the next few weeks.
My plans include making soap, making modelling beeswax, sewing some PJ pants for me and a couple of drawing folders for birthday gifts, maybe even a top for Jazz if there is enough fabric, making a colour matching/sorting game, a cushion for the toddler chair (aka the wooden high chair which I took to with a saw yesterday!), a huge bathmat for the kids bathroom, and several non slip toilet mats.
Wow, that's quite a list!
Lets see how long it takes me to get through it all
I will keep you updated on my progress.
I even shared today's happiness and bought Georgia home with us for a sleep over - much to Isaac & Jacinta's delight!
The little angels were all sound asleep by 7.30pm - sweet!
eta - I'm pleased to report that everyone slept soundly all night at our house, and after speaking to my sister this morning, it was also a very quiet night there - Bailey slept through for the first time, and Vic got her first full nights sleep in about 4 years!
