It's the last day of February and we're one-sixth of the way through this year. Summer is at an end and as this day fades quietly away, I am reflecting on the month that was.
It's a month that's meant back to school. It's a month that has seen us parting with quite a lot of money. New uniforms. Lots of bills. Wedding outfits (not ours, our niece). New shoes, new dresses, new blazers. School camps, swimming lessons, violin lessons, tennis lessons, netball, touch football and more. Not to mention a hefty speeding fine. And just two nights ago we forked out on a snake catcher to come and remove and 2.5 metre python from the rafters of our deck.
It's been a month of busyness. School runs and helping out in classes. Work, extra-curricular stuff, a new Swiss student and the afore-mentioned wedding. Endless nit treatments and school lunch boxes. It's a month where I can't really find any lovely photos to share. Too busy getting through the day and planning for the next to stop and take a breath and appreciate what's around me. Too busy for my morning walks, a bike ride or a lap session in the local pool.
As of tomorrow, I shall aim to change all that. I plan to slow down, look around and take it easier.
Wish me luck!
I'm leaving you with a photo of PK and I from the wedding.
