All At Sea

It has been a day today, I have pretty much put all our belongings in our garage ready for the building work and oh my I feel lost at sea, my home looks so unloved I have no family photographs on the walls, all my children's beautiful books are not on the shelves, all their favourite toys are nowhere to be seen and my beautiful little gems are hibernating, and I am glad to know that they shall be back soon.

It has made me think, how important really are they, why do I collect so many things, why can't I go into a charity shop without buying something and why do I feel lost without them.

Plain and simple they aren't and what is important is my family, my children, my friends, and what is getting to be more of a family blog is what is right for me. My home sweet home is a love, and I shall enjoy sharing that journey with you, though my darling children are more of a love, I really appreciate people rather than things and who knows maybe I have got you thinking too, how important really are your things too and would you be happy without them.

One bucket of pretty chalks....

And one budding Artist later....
