With nursery closed today for staff training and no dance class on Saturday morning due to half term, I have the luxury of three days in a row when I don’t have to get up. Tomorrow, I don’t have anywhere I need to go for the first time in I don’t know how long. I love my car, but I must admit that the thought of not having to get behind the wheel is very, very appealing. I feel as though I’m being incredibly self-indulgent!
It’s funny how it’s the little things that matter once you have children and get caught up in the whirlwind of their various activities.
Winter is on its way and currently I’m debating renting a cottage for a week, disappearing off with my puppy and a laptop and just working without the distraction of five small people running around. As the weather gets colder, I find myself wanting to retreat and focus more on my creative projects. I have so many ideas though. Where to start? There’s my second novel to tackle, my co-writing project to polish and I have an old short story I’ve been dying to expand, not to mention the children’s stories I’ve been plotting with an artist friend.
I need more than 24 hours in a day.
