Where has the last month gone? One day I'm thinking -moaning and groaning - it's still two months before the end of the school year and all this commuting, and today I realise it's less than two weeks!!! Yay! Sometimes I hate it that time flies, say, when I'm thinking my son is 10 (10!!!) already, and sometimes I love it, like now.
We're home today - my son woke up with a temperature and I took today and tomorrow off to look after him. It's a slow day; he's doing ok. I'm doing ok. An unexpected gift of extra time - though I wanted to save the days off for the winter. Never mind. Today is here now. Chicken soup is on the menu. Light and nutritious, for sick boys and trying-to-look-after-themselves mums. I got distracted for a while. Remember my clean(s)ing plan? Slowly getting back on track. Hubby is abroad for work this week. It's not the time to decline job offers. One of them is a six-month project abroad, starting in July. It's going to be hard on my little guy - and his dad, too. Me too, of course. Summer holidays start soon. There's lots of driving planned - to my village, to the sea- and some flying probably. I love travelling by plane and I love staying at hotels. But most of all, I love visiting new places. There'll also be lots of rest and relaxation at my dad's yard, among the flowers I've planted in spring. They're doing great he's telling me.
At last... spring is here, weatherwise, too ! May is my favourite month - with flowers blooming and birds singing... I love it!
These flowers are at my dad's, where I spent the long weekend, planting tomatoes, peppers and other nutritious veggies and enjoying the colours around the garden. Lots of green, pinks and reds and white as well.
A little fragrant bunch came home with me and greeted me happily a few minutes ago when I came home from work. Enjoy May! Yiota
