Time flies...

far too quickly doesn't it? I'm nearly at the end of my holidays and have done nothing, am desperately wishing I didn't have to go back to work and am trying to claw myself out of a rut {I hate ruts, they really should be banned}. And so, I am constantly trying to remind myself of just how much I have to be grateful for and how truly blessed I am:

  • I have a husband who adores me and our child, who is happy to take a part-time cleaning job just to get some money in while waiting for something better to open up.
  • I have a handful of great friends that I can count on to be there for me through thick and thin, who I trust and love with all my heart... who ask after me if they've not spoken to or seen me for a few days, friends that pick up if I'm a bit off, before I even realise it myself some days.
  • Even though 'structured' learning is a struggle for Kel, he is smart and has so much love, empathy and compassion... as well as his constant entertainment factor, not to mention the hugs, I so love his hugs!
  • I am employed well at a company that respects me and am lucky enough to enjoy my job {'cept when I have to go back after almost a month off}.
So... I'm blessed with wonderful gifts of love, and it feels so much better to write it down and put it out there {plus Kel just came and gave me a big hug good morning}.

I have much to do today, washing so I have some fresh clean clothes for work on Wednesday and so Kel has uniforms for school tomorrow... plus I have to find my scrap room. It's become a mini office/dumping ground as well and could do with a spring clean {in winter yes}, think I might moved the dining room back into the kitchen as well, I much prefer to eat in there for some reason. I think a tidy up and move around will do me a world of good... after lunch, I need to wake up first!

I have managed to do some scrapping the last couple of days though... phew, I had thought my mojo had gone walkabout again, cheeky thing that it is! One thing we did do on my holidays was have our god-daughter Courtney come stay for a week, such a wonderful treat. To have her back in our lives for such a short time made our family feel complete again. I mean we are complete, but when she is here with us... it just all fits so well. Reminds us how much we miss her and her mum being around the corner instead of 800km away!

So the scrapping...
