Taking A Deep Breath

It’s the beginning of the second week of term 2, and it’s been a good day!
The first week back is always stressful (at least the first days…), but we tend to settle down when we start to understand what we’re doing for the term. It’s taken a bit longer this time.
Today started off badly, and could have gotten worse. I spent last week trying to finish a subject from my course, so spent less time with Littlest Bean and his work than he needed – a recipe for stress! Today, I decided that I could concentrate on his work, so we spent this morning snuggling, talking through the questions for the day (and some for the week), taking the stress out of the day. Usually he settles in to his work within the week and then works well with minimal supervision. This term’s been a bit different…
It was so lovely spending the time together today! Both my boys have been growing so fast, and we don’t spend so much one-on-one time. Today was like a breath of fresh air – a sweet time with my Sweet Bean ❤

I’ve still had time to get some work done, but took some time to continue the “taking a breath” part of the day. Had a lovely soak in the bath this afternoon, with a scented candle and a good book. Here’s my book, warm socks and a snuggly dressing gown to keep warm 🙂

Breathe!
Life is good, when we slow down enough to see it…
