It feels a bit weird to be sat here on my own after two weeks of endless noisy requests for food, games and trips to the park. I’d like to say I’m enjoying the peace, but I’m just missing everyone. The house feels too empty, too quiet.
The children however, were quite happy to get back to school, we’ve had a lot of fun together at home, but I think they missed friends that we didn’t manage to see. In some ways the routine of school life is easier to manage than holidays, although not nearly as enjoyable for me. We’ve braved donutting, explored LEGOLAND, climbed trees, been to the park, had picnics with friends and hunted eggs. Looking back it’s been magical, though not without arguments from my older two children.
This photo was taken at The Vyne, yesterday when we took part in the annual Easter Egg hunt. It caught my eye because Z and H were having a race and he slowed down a little to let her win. A small act of brotherly kindness.
