Last night we had a special dinner to celebrate New Beginnings, or in some cases the Approaching Ends that will bring New Beginnings. It is very important that all of these things are in Capitals, as they are most definitely Titles. Simon is entering his final year at University, Reuben has his last year of Primary School, Mia has her first proper year in Primary School, and I have been given the opportunity to quit my day job to work on little minx as my Full-Time Job – all really rather exciting! The kids are off to school today, leaving me standing at the door of my workspace with my hands on my hips and lots of bags ready for the clean out that now needs to happen if I am to find my room under two months worth of “I’ve just put it in the Study”.
These school holidays have seemed long, or rather I can’t really remember what the end of last year looked or felt like. The weather has been very kind to us, and the last week has been spent with almost daily visits to Long Beach, where we have spent hours swimming, boogie-boarding, reading, and building sand castles. Ah, our little piece of heaven. I hope the holidays were good to you, and wonderful memories were created. Now, back to work!
