Hello Gorgeous Friday!
I received the fab news that my little tribe are coming home a day early! Since then I’ve been even more impatient for their return. My reaction to the news has been hilarious! It’s that same feeling I had as a kid when we were anticipating the arrival of our grandmother from Sydney who would sometimes fly into our dusty country town in a little plane. Looking up, eager to be the first to see the speck in the sky and yell “She’s coming!” It was beyond that butterflies-in-the-stomach feeling. And that is what I’m feeling now.
All in all it’s been a great week. I’ve kept to my plan of staying busy, busy, busy and I’ve been productive. Yes, I gave myself permission to relax and recharge. To all of your who sent lovely message after my post last Thursday about when my babes were leaving, kindly advising me to ‘take time out for me too. I did. I promise. xxx
I’ve enjoyed my week but being a mum of four is what ignites me. Truly. Without those beautiful babes with me? No. That’s not my natural state of being. So relieved that they will be filling up this quiet little cottage and my mama heart again tomorrow.
Only one more sleep. XOXOXOXOXOXOX
This morning I woke at 5 to attend my Kundalini yoga class. Each Kundalini class is different. One of the reasons why I love this form of yoga. Today we focused on releasing our anxieties and opening our hearts.
Two things that I should never do is grocery shop when I’m hungry and go to a nursery after watching a gardening show. I tend to go a little overboard. Gulp. Inspired by the warmth and what I had seen on TV I jumped in my car and headed to one of our local nurseries.
Thursday has arrived.
Today begins the heart wrenching holiday spilt routine. My four babes visit with their dad for the next nine days. They will be fine. They will miss me, yes, but they will have fun and will be looked after well. It’s just that it isn’t a situation
I struggled through my beloved yoga practice this morning. I felt really awkward and tight but what was worse, I had no motivation. So disappointed as I’ve felt really physically and mentally strong. On top of it. I’ve been really disciplined with my home practice and in a great routine for weeks and weeks. So yes, feeling a bit down on myself. They say that when you feel resistance like this you need to persist. This resistance is apparently your mind
I felt that vibe so much today Mr. Williams. Outside. Barefoot. In the garden. Massive tidy up. Ready for the new. Typing this post with dirty, cut up hands (I guess I should have worn gloves) and sun kissed skin. Body is weary but feeling oh so content, happy and excited.
Spring. Sigh. Love. XO
Today was such a glorious day. Good gracious I adore Fridays! We finished our week with simply hanging out in our little backyard. William, Scarlett, Henry and I had a spirited (read competitive) soccer match and then a jump on the tramp (to cool down) while we counted down the minutes
