Looking back, I have not visited this blog since Christmas time. I had a little combination of "overwhelmed by life with three kids" and "I have nothing of particular interest to offer the world so why on earth am I blogging". Well neither of these situations has changed. But I feel the need to write. So let this be my therapy if nothing else.
Whilst I have a few recent craft projects to share I know they would benefit from photos which I am yet to take so it will be a "watch this space" for craft at the moment. Hence the ramblings.
Everyone has been sick. Oh, not quite - overworked, superhero Dadda seems to have avoided the bug. Touch wood. The interesting thing is, being sick has forced us to slow down; slowing down has forced us to spend time just playing; just playing has forced us to spend more "quality" time with the kids. All this has made me feel more relaxed and in control. Also, that overwhelmedness that I mentioned earlier has subsided somewhat. I get caught up in this hyped up state of being where I feel the need to be always "doing" something. Its not just parenting. Its constant. I feel almost guilty if we are just hanging about. Heaven forbid I should be relaxing instead of taking the kids places, exploring this amazing place we live, getting jobs done, and so on.
So here's to standing still and enjoying just being.
