Springtime slowdown

Springtime slowdown

This isn’t the post I intended on writing this week, but sometimes you’ve got to toss out your expectations and just go with the flow.

The last few days have been a wonderful mixture of quality family time, restorative solo time and the hours have melted into days and suddenly the weekend has come to an end . I just simply ran out of time to pull together what I had planned for this week’s post. I was initially beating myself up for not setting aside writing time, but you know what, in the end it doesn’t really matter – I had a lovely, relaxed weekend and it was just what I needed.

Have a wonderful week and I’ll catch you next Monday.

So when I found myself with a couple of small, very over-ripe bananas the other day, I decided the only solution was to make banana bread. I’ll confess, part of my desire to whip up a loaf was the fact Adam won’t eat it and Paul isn’t partial to cake – I knew I’d be able to slowly devour my sweet treat over the course of several days…

What’s making me happy: October

October’s felt both long and short. I’ve had a really, really busy few weeks at work which has made the time feel like it’s whizzing by. At the same time though, the entire household’s been sick which has made some days feel oh-so-drawn-out. In between it all, there’ve been some lovely moments though – here’s what’s been making me smile this month…
