spending time the proper way




Today I intended to crack on with the painting, but after spending a little time this morning listening to TED Talks about the device age and human connection I decided to spend the day properly with my children. We turned all the screens off and, given 3 choices, chose the local pool. An hour and a half later both kids were still playing happily with each other, making jokes, splashing around, all with me poolside with a big smile on my face. How easy it is to forget to spend that precious spare time in this way. When we got home I took Mia into the studio, and finally gave her that long-ago promised first lesson in how to sew. She is really thrilled with the bookmark she made, and it was just delightful to hear her prattle on about all the things she could make now. Happy Sunday to you x
