It's me again little bloggies, writing to you from deepest, darkest Devon!
As I write this little missive, it's 1 p.m. and I have all the lamps lit in the house. We really have had some dreary days recently, and I do feel that I need some brightness to lift my spirits! The forecast is for it to get colder during the end of the week - Allelujah! For this usually means the return of dryer and brighter days. I'm desperate to get out for one of my walks again.
Every Tuesday (apart from when I've been away on holiday) for the past four and a half years, I have spent with daughter number 2. First of all, just with Eli and then, eighteen months later, little Ruby joined us.
Last September, Eli started big school, so it has just been my daughter, Ruby and myself. On top of that, I used to look after Ruby on a Friday, so that my daughter could have some 'me' time. However, that has now all changed. Ruby was three recently, so she started pre-school yesterday. Just for either a morning or afternoon session, but on a Tuesday she will be there from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. Six hours! I expect it will seem like a long day for her, and I am waiting to see how she got on.
Whenever I see new mums with their babies, I always tell them to make the most of the precious time, because they really do grow away far too quickly. So! There are changes afoot. Perhaps I will see if there is a water colour class going on somewhere locally, as I have always wanted to do that. Or an Italian class - that would be fun.
What I must make sure doesn't happen is that I spend even more time on my laptop. I must try to make constructive use of the time that I didn't have available before.
Anyway, how are YOU all keeping my friends? I hope that you haven't succumbed to the January blues, and that you are managing to keep cheerful.
Bye for now, and I'll see you again soon.
Hugs from thisisme.
