The little things...

I've been so busy lately I hardly had time to catch my breath. The two weeks off for easter has reminded me I need to slow down a bit and enjoy life a little. I never used to be such a workaholic so I'm not sure how it happened! So I have decided to cut back on things and allow myself to say no occasionally.

Anya brought home a pocket stuffed full of daisies yesterday and was so disappointed when she realsied they were dying. Ten minutes in a tea glass full of water soon fixed that. In September she will be off to school full time so making the most of these few hours we have together every afternoon should be my priority before they are gone for good.

i need to do the same - our babies are growing up! :'(

(I bet we won't feel like this during the six week holidays though!)

I completely agree, I seem to spend more time working and rushing around rather than kicking back every now and then - which doesn't do any harm, infact only good!

Love the daises. <3

In yoga they say that you can achieve more by doing less. I guess this means that you ficus on what's important instead of getting bogged down with stuff that doesn't really need doing. Sounds like you have your priorities right. take it slo and breathe lots - it's good for you ... x
