Kicking over the leaves…

Kicking over the leaves…

Another week has flown by with barely a chance to raise my head and catch a breath. Christmas is a busy time anyway, but with two university modules due in January, I find I barely have a chance to do anything but study.

This weekend we did find some time to put the Christmas decorations up and clear the leaves, but they were brief moments squeezed in between other obligations and with the days so short at this time of year, I all too quickly find the sun has gone and the moment to do anything has passed.

This year has been so full and busy for all of us, I think I want next year to be a little less hectic. On Thursday we found out Jim is going to be promoted, which is exciting and comes with the added bonus of at least a month off over the summer between his current job and a training course. I am already daydreaming about what that could mean… Maybe a bit of traveling before Theo starts school? Or a chance to do some work on our garden?

The list of things I want to do in 2015 is very long and more and more I find that studying is slipping closer to the bottom of that list. I think about the summer before last and how I had time to make Theo multiple pairs of shorts (which he loved) and how this summer instead of going with him to pick out fabrics to make new pairs, he had to squeeze into the old ones because there was no time to sew.

There’s a lot of thinking to be done in the next few weeks and planning for the kind of 2015 we want to have…

I agree with you about a slightly less hectic year, I think we need the same here. It’s been busy, full on but wonderful. And there is nothing better than a kick about in the leaves- gorgeous gorgeous light. xx
