What a funny day. What a funny feeling. It is the first day of the rest of my life, life as half of a child free couple. I don't quite know what to do with myself. I can do anything, anything I like. When I used to crave time I could always think of things to do....today...my mind is blank.
I know, my son is an adult, a self sufficient adult. He left. What's the difference? The difference is I have nobody to be a mother to on a daily basis. I am no longer needed to take him to work every morning and bring him home every night. That task was done on a voluntary basis by me. As was making him chicken pasta to take for his lunch. He was perfectly willing and very able to do those things for himself. I however loved being a mother, loved doing things for him. I know I will love the new life I can now have, it's just going to take a little getting used to.
Thursday I am going cabinet shopping. I have plans to change the house round a little, add some long wished for furniture that I now have room for. I need my husband home to move things....sadly he is working non stop now until Wednesday evening. I am home alone so to speak. Not a bad thing but something that prevents me moving furniture. Never mind, I will be patient.
In the meantime I can finish the pin pillows, make more lace cloth. I am already ahead with video for class but I can make more, get further ahead. I can sit myself down and think long and hard so the new reality sinks in. The last one is probably the most urgent....
This weekend my daughter came home overnight. Yesterday we went ''up North'' to see family so they don't forget what she looks like. Next time they see her she will be a married woman. We spent the day at the beach, my mum has hired a caravan there for a week to take my nephews on a little holiday. It was a brilliant day....I love those boys to bits. There are photos from that on my Instagram
So all that's left to do is put my brain in gear....give myself a shake, get my sewing machine out, make more lace cloth and speaking of lace cloth....the winner of that is Veronica....I am so sorry you couldn't all have some, truly I am.
