It has been a while

It has been 6 weeks to the day. Six weeks since I have been alone in my own home.

I have not waited with bated breath for all my children to be back at school although the quietness is something I have desparately missed.

I had planned to head back to the gym today, however, the thought of sharing sweaty, loud spaces with others is just not appealing.

I need to be alone. With no noise. No music.

I am hoping to feel the wind on my face (but not a gale!) and smell the sea.

Happy Monday people.

It's like having an ear massage isn't it?

Mine were no sooner out the house last week - then I immediately missed them. :)

*sigh* Such different spaces we are in. Funny how it always seems that you wish for things to be another way and when it happens you wish it to be back to 'normal'! I remember waiting for schools to go back and now I wish mine was home more often! Ha... and so the world turns. Enjoy the quiet of the day - its a beaut.

I love a day of peace and quiet every now and again to do what I please when I want, without interruption or other people's noise. Enjoy your day!

I'm so not a blogger said...

I think times of silence and solitude is a necessary part of ones life. VIPOL -VERY IMPORTANT PART OF ONES LIFE ;-)
and feeling guilty about having or wanting or needing it is a waste of valuable space inside ones head and heart. As Allie says, when the times are right:-)
