Time to take time to reflect

I've had one of those weeks....I've had alot of events come and go and this week I have been left feeling drained
This long year for me is near an end....Mike being here is in sight....and I think my body has finally relaxed leaving me tired and lethargic.
I know this week I have shouted too much at the kids and generally been less sympathetic to their needs....this week I have probably whinged to much back at them.....basically been more like a kid than an mother.

So yesterday I started documenting all the good things to remind me 
it ain't that bad......it could be worse

Beautiful sun shining days, where a rug, sunhat and toybox make a for a happy child and a happy mum


Weeding, planting and generally watching my plants grow,while the above child has been playing has been good for my soul


Fixing my spinning wheel, and relaxing spinning....I love that my kids are intrigued by the process and Big J even gave it a go!


Mr B and Little J teamed up to create this hut, apparently a work in progress.....well I can't say much since I have alot of those


This afternoon, Big J was relaxing, putting the finishing touches to his dragon....I love his pictures.


And lastly while everyone was busy doing there own thing this evening...I went to investigate where Lil Miss had disappeared too! 


Oops!

Time to make myself a chai tea and relax....tomorrow is another day :)

Joining in this week with Things I'm Loving

Youve all survived, next week is a new week, and you can start again! Were all human and allowed to have "off" weeks. Spinning? Is there anything you cant do? A-mazing!! Sending you lots of hugs and happy thoughts-breads and sunshine and time out xx

Good on you for identifying the problem and doing something about it! Its been a long hard year for you, you're allowed to be over it. I love all the photos of your new life in the country it really looks perfect.

Wow! You've got a spinning wheel and you can use it!- I'm so impressed! Is there ANYTHING you can't do???

Tomorrow is another day - that's my mantra too. You have a beautiful family, talented kids, and I love that you take the time to blog and share a little bit of your life with us.

That first photo is stunning!
Tomorrow is a new day (oops, just noticed Julie said that too!), a time to start afresh. And it's a day closer to Mike being with you.
I always try and make sure everyone goes to bed happy, so that we all wake up with the knowledge that yesterday's grumpiness/naughtiness has been forgotten and swept away.

such a good strategy, its so easy to let a bad day turn into a week, or a week a fortnight. I'm having a great one after a bad one, and i hope you are now too. your garden looks so beautiful, its so good to have that kind of refuge x

There is so much power in emphasising the positive. And I agree with all the others -- the photography is amazing!
