Well can I just say that I am sorry. So sorry for not chatting and being absent, but here I am with plenty to say.
Firstly…I am now a mum of 2 school boys. And you know, I was nervous and anxious, but it’s really ok. You don’t lose them when they go to school, things are just different. And since change is the meaning of this life thing….so really, it’s all good. Both my boys have settled into school so beautifully. I am overjoyed there have been no tears. Just sweet hugs and promises to have a great day! Bless them big boys of mine.
Which brings me to having just my little Samuel at home. Even though he is a chatter box, it’s so quiet! Sammy happily trots along behind me doing the gardening, hanging out the washing, feeding the animals, helping at school, he is right there. And its the most wonderful thing. I was not ready to have no kiddies at home just yet…I can’t explain how glad I am we did go back for the third bubba.
Now in other news, did I tell you I am now a member of a book club? No, I didn’t think I had mentioned it….well it’s grand! I feel educated. I feel like an adult!
Myself and 11 other women go out and eat gorgeous adult food ( not a nugget in sight! ) discus, talk, and share about the book we had just read. A new book has already been chosen by one of the women and we eagerly await our copy to be handed out…we then ponder of what might be behind the front cover, what world the words will take us to. It is a true thing of beauty I tell you!!
And not only so we chat about the book, but life. We speak openly, truthfully, and respectfully. And we laugh, the laughter of women together is something else! We women are of all ages, jobs and interests…can you tell I throughly enjoy it? Last time was only my 2nd book club gathering and it dawned on me on the way home how lovely it was just to be around some women. No fear or judgement. I feel sometimes us ladies can be just downright nasty to each other. I totally get that we won’t always agree and get along, but gosh we can be quick to tear a fellow girl down…
Life is tough enough you know? Let’s be kind. Everyone is fighting a battle we know nothing about. Don’t worry, I’m taking my own advice!
And don’t get me wrong…it’s brilliant being a stay at home mum, I love having my boys around me but a night off every couple of months is just super!
There’s not much more…but that’ll do for now.
Take care my friends x
