Weekly Reflections

It’s 10.30 am yet it feels like midday. The clocks changed this morning and that extra hour feels like five. Oren and I woke up at 6.30am {which would have been our usual 7.30am}. With the middle three at their Dad’s, we had a rare chilled morning. I snuck out to make a cup of tea, then we snuggled back in bed to sing songs.

Whe the tea had woken me up sufficiently, I hopped on my yoga mat. Oren watched a little Sesame Street,joined in with my yoga a little and played with his toys.

Apart from the mornings I run, I try and get on my yoga mat first thing. Even if it’s just for a quick twenty-minute practice. Some days it’s about working out, somedays it’s about soul work. Either way, it starts me off in a good frame of mind.

It’s strange not having a houseful of kiddos, though I kind of like the peace these days and having a little one-on-one time with Oren. He’s happy to potter around with me, feeding animals, picking up the detritus from around the house, hoovering, and lighting incense.

Bringing a little order to the house.

Now he is having a nap, and I am relishing the silence. I have a hot {decaf} coffee and a blank screen to fill. Soaking up these still moments, and bottling the calm.

Last week was a whirlwind, and this week, well we were meant to be going on holiday, but due to another lockdown here in Wales that got canceled. So instead we’re going to fill it with long walks, bike rides, baking, crafts, movies, and getting ready for a Halloween party for the six of us next weekend.

I’ve some reading to do ahead of this week’s Uni lectures. I am loving studying again, though fitting it in is tricky, and a three-hour zoom call on a Tuesday evening is tough going with little ones around. It will be worth it in the end.

Right now, I’m enjoying the sun streaming through the window, the cat softly snoring behind me, and the pitter-patter of raindrops on the window. I’m off to look for that rainbow in a minute.
