- I've been so busy with projects and fun stuff that I haven't had time to write.
- I've decided I'm finally going to get life 'right' and I'm putting all my time and energy into organising the house and kids. Always a nuisance when I get into this mode because I waste precious time sweeping and wiping surfaces!!
- I'm overwhelmed, exhausted and feeling like a failure.
So there it was identified, I needed a break.
I am very lucky. I rang and asked my mother, feeling very guilty, if she could take the children and she didn't hesitate. She and Dad looked after the kids for two days even overseeing their lessons for me. Hubby took on a load as he worked all day and then cared for the animals and milked. Belle and I did heaps of preparation to cut down the work and I think it helped him.
I booked a room near Rosie so I could squeeze in a visit with her and my lovely granddaughter. I spent two days listening to relaxation cds, crafting, planning a new daily routine for when I went home and generally just sitting quietly (just being) !
