Slowing Down

Hey there! We’re back.

I am currently surrounded by a mountain of washing to do, washing to be put away, bags to be unpacked, a to-do list as long as your arm (and growing), plus all the normal day-to-day routine tasks to be done.

It makes you wonder whether it is worth going away.

But as quickly as that thought comes to mind I remember how good it was to be away.

Away from the normal day-to-day routine. How everything just   s  l  o  w  e  d   right down.

Away from the things that drive me crazy being at home. How there was acres of space for the kids to roam and explore.

I remember how for a whole week I never yelled once. And I haven’t yelled since being home, either!

How for a whole week we were without our technological devices and no-one missed the t.v.!

So, even though there is a few extra tasks to be done, they don’t need to be done all at once.

If I wish to hold onto anything from our break away, it is slowing down.

And by slowing down I mean to accept (and REALLY accept) that things will happen in their own good time.

I will attack that pile of washing, load by load. Nothing is going to make that go any faster, or dry any quicker. It is what it is.

I will unpack those bags, one bag at a time, maybe the kids will help me, maybe they won’t. It will happen. When it can happen.

I’ll keep adding to the to-do list. And I’ll do what I can. Some things will get checked off. Others won’t (well, not today). It is what it is.

Our daily rhythm will begin again, I expect this to change anyway, there’s been a change in the air while we’ve been away.

A new season is about to begin.

Now it is time for this weeks The Weekly Kids’ Co-Op!

Heads up: I’ll be looking for five awesome sensory activities to feature next week!
