We're taking our time and easing ourselves into this new year. Our little town is swelling with visitors, and I just love the summertime holiday atmosphere around the place. We ride our bikes here, there and everywhere to avoid the traffic congestion and its become one of my most favourite things to do. Mostly, I love that we do it together. It's become quality family time, we're getting to know one another all over again, sharing stories, goals for the year and lots of laughs.
This week, we're officially back at work, though the kids are still on holidays so making the most of any spare time is a must. Beach visits, getting our little surfer boy out on the waves, fish and chips in the park and more bike rides. I've said it before and I'll say it again, we are just so lucky that our kids enjoy home and rarely ask to go places. They've set up the sun tent in the backyard and spend hours playing camp, having tea parties with their baby sister, making movies and writing stories. It's truly a joy to watch.
I'm taking time whenever I can to work on a few crochet projects, cleaning out cupboards and doing the odd op shop drop off. I'm feeling the need to cleanse and simplify our home and I'm hoping it'll motivate me to make a start on some long overdue home improvements, I'm the worlds greatest procrastinator for certain!
I hope your new year is off to an easy start. Are you lucky enough to be on holidays? If not, I hope you find time to make the most of those spare moments.
