I have looked forward to today with real mixed emotions. My two wild and roaring boys have returned to school. And as much as I love having my pride of lions close to me, I have longed for some freedom, some air to breathe and a moment to myself. The noise level over Christmas was all too much for me… I needed space, space for me to clear my buzzing head.
So this very morning after I returned from the school run I found myself sat at my dining table, enjoying the rare silence around me. I poured myself a soothing cup of mint tea and breathed in deeply….ah …. it was so quiet I could even hear the clock ticking on the kitchen wall. Bliss.
Although my moment of peace was short lived, every second was savoured and stored away. One day I will have a little retreat to go to, in my desperate need for solitude, away from the noise of the everyday. Yes my dear friends as the title of this blog does tell, I am a lover of sheds. It does seem I have a masculine streak!
Right now I am lying on the sofa with the noise of young boys around me, nursing a sore jaw from a dental procedure I had this afternoon. It is so painful! Off to bed shortly.
Note to self… on the first day back of term… do nothing but sit and drink mint tea! And NOT go to the dentist! x
