I’m feeling so crappy today; achy, throaty, sneezy, urghhh thinking I’ve caught the boys sniffles. I feel like curling up in bed to read and sleep all day. Bugger, can’t possibly do that as it’s the start of my working days now. I really need to be feeling 100%. Lots of tea and all things good for me today. Beautiful Spring blooms from the garden are taking my mind off feeling unwell. Such a pretty time of year.
I’m still busy working on my Christmas cards, greeting cards and gift tags. These shall be finished by the end of the week and I can’t wait to share them with you all. I have so so so missed my painting time though and am looking forward to spending long periods of time in the studio again in the next few weeks. I did manage to sneak an hour in of painting fun yesterday afternoon while lil Flynn slept and Tully had some quiet time. Fun free-spirited time is joyous and I think I need to make more of these snippets of creative time. It certainly invigorates the soul.
I had another attempt at painting with Tully again, but my patience didn’t last too long. He’s still a little unpredictable to really enjoy painting together. My time is spent watching where the paint is going and stopping him being silly instead of us just having fun. He was actually better when he was 18 months than 3. We had fun while it lasted though (o:
I have enjoyed lots of fun and giggles with my lil boys the past few days; we painted, we baked, we drew, we built towers, we raced cars, we road bikes, we posted parcels, we collected our mail, danced, chased butterflies, walked, ran, explored. Don’t you love being childlike with your kids. Whilst exploring outside we had fun photographing some beautiful Spring cheer that is abundant around our garden at the moment.
My little boys love cooking in the kitchen and making things. They helped me post some parcels late last week and they also loved baking a slice and cookies yesterday and then wrapping them up and delivering them to our friends doorstep on our way to the park. I love showing them the gift of giving and generosity to others. I do hope this is one of the key things they remember and hold onto through life.
We enjoyed the generosity of a gift from another yesterday too. When we walked down to check our mail in between the showers of rain we were all excited to find a parcel in there to enjoy. Thankyou so much “you know who” xxx We were delighted to find and open this gift from the heart.
Wishing you all a wonderful rest of the week, and I’ll pop back here later in the week to share my new card designs with you.
