This week, let’s just quietly sip our whiskey and dry, shall we? After my fourth week of simultaneous working and mothering, I have neither the strength nor the will to speak. I am, however, trying to revel in the micro-moments.
If I could speak, I would tell you this about the week just gone:
I’m loving: the fact that I am kinda-sorta on holiyays next week. Which is to say that I am on annual leave but I have a lot of work still to do.
I’m enjoying: little things. The bigger things are a bit too much like hard work right now.
I’m watching: Minimalism: A Documentary About the Important Things on Netflix. I am too attached to things to ever be considered a minimalist (I am, after all, a person who collects plain cardboard boxes because they just make me happy), but I do believe I live by the same principles that govern the movement.
I’m reading: Hetty’s book. I enjoyed a little snack and read it like a book (apologies for all the weird, eye-hurty angles in the image above!) Do you love to read cookbooks too?
I’m making: space in my day to focus exclusively on my kiddos. It is helping a lot.
I’m discovering: that the best friends are the ones that do as well as say.
I’m wondering: how I can repay the kindness of others in a way that is meaningful.
I’m listening: to Max teaching himself how to play the piano. A child learning any instrument is equal parts satisfying and horrific.
I’m planning: to keep working day and night over the weekend in the hope that I can mostly put work behind me next week. I really do need a break.
How is your week? Hot and bothered or chilled and happy?
