working hard...

Working hard this week, so this is going to be my last post for a while.
It really struck me this morning how happy my kids are! I know that's a bit strange! but they were so eager to get to school ( a memory I definitely don't have!) 
just so carefree, no responsibility or a care in the world, which of course is how it should be,  every child's right! it was lovely to watch, and I felt incredibly lucky and proud.

They skipped most of the way to school.

I did not skip back, with my head full of jobs, to do lists etc, and what felt like the weight of the world on my shoulders.

I think we should all try and think like children!...

I bought this beautiful card the other day by Suzy Taylor, I love the sentiment,

as well as this one!!

 thanks for all your support and lovely & kind comments, 
I  soooooooooo  appreciated them, every one, you always give me a boost as I work away here on my lonesome! and I love reading all your blogs and creative adventures, so inspiring:)
so thank you
