While I write this, I am sitting in my dressing gown while watching Justin's house on Cbeebies with the little one and a kitten licking herself next to me. TMI? Probably. It's actually the first proper day off for a while where I haven't also scheduled an appointment and I'm enjoying it. Trying not to think of the back to work routine yet lest I ruin my relaxed feeling. Every year around this time I am filled with a renewed sense of possibilities. As a twenty-something, it was the time I applied to many jobs hoping for a fresh start. I am not necessarily doing that now in my thirties, I realised the grass is rarely greener but financial freedom would be great or at least something with a good salary and that allows me to do the school run too? Impossible? We'll see. Also taken the opportunity to fill my livingroom with the (not so) subtle scents of summer fruits and berries. Really embracing the two-candle feng shui rule. Apart from encouraging the flow of chi and welcoming love it also masks the evidence of the smelly, cheeky cat. I think it has actually soothed the cat to sleep.
