How wonderful it has been lately to have 2 public holidays in a row.
On these days I get this great urge to go crazy painting a room, cleaning out cupboards and trying to pack in as many things as I can, as I have Matt home to help watch the kids.
This time I decided to let is all go and to chill out.
I was surprised at how difficult I found this to be.
I let myself sleep in.
(well a BIG sleeping in around here is to 7am).
I went outside and pottered around in my veggie garden - delightful :)
(especially as all the kids were inside and it was just ME).
I did a small clean out of the shed (couldn't help myself) but it was small, more like rearranging the entrance to the shed and I felt so much better knowing that I had made a little difference.
I hung out in the kitchen with some of the kids and we made zucchini, ham and cheese mini quiches (our favourite) and we ate them hot, fresh out of the oven...yummo!
With my full tummy I then had a small snooze in the lounge...lovely, just lovely.
When I woke up Matt had decided to make homemade bread and rolls. The house smelled great and boy do I love a man who loves to bake!!! Hot bread with butter, fresh out of the oven...it has been way to long my friend, we have missed each other...white bread and butter...delicious.
We all then gathered in the lounge room for our family night. Clapped, laughed, sang songs and finished off with a conga-line to some funky music. Great fun and great company!
What a sensational day...so glad I decided to chill out and not miss those wonderful moments at home, that I took the time to hang out with my family instead of filling the day up being busy, busy, busy.
Love you guys....
