Last day

28 Oct

Today is a day like many others.  Steve got up before me and gave the children breakfast.  Then he headed off to work.  Now the children and I are pottering around the house, doing not very much.  Well making a mess, obviously, but other than that, not much.  A half term day like many others.

Except it’s not.  It’s Steve’s last day at work.  We’ve said goodbye to him for the last time.  Tomorrow, it’s kind of the start.  No more work and no more school.  This is what we wanted, why we’re doing this.  To be together.

Today is going very slowly.

    I hope it all goes beautifully for you and you have all the togetherness you want…

      I’m sure we’ll have days when we have way too much togetherness!

    If today is the last day then tomorrow is the first day of your new life! And it’s certainly one way of avoiding Christmas shopping!

    How fantastic. Cannot wait for you to get on your way. Just to let you know that we’ll be in NZ 17-20 dec and 2-9 Jan. 🙂

      I knew what you meant! We are staying with friends for quite a lot of our time in NZ, so not sure of our plans yet, I’ve told them to organise what they want.

    On those days when you want a bit of ‘me time’ I suggest secretly eating copious amounts of garlic . . . 100% fool proof!

    Happy travels to you and your gorgeous family x
