The boys went back to school today, youngest full time this
year. I thought I would be glad of a
little calm but the house is far too quiet!
I need to find new projects to busy myself with. With them out of the house for big chunks of
the day I could finish our decorating plans.
I have a little room that is going to convert into my office; I write
from our sofa presently and all that hunching forward typing is not good for my
posture! I do not want to resemble
Quasimodo, so I think I need to sort that problem out quick fast…
I have eyed up a fabulous chair over at Homebase, perfect
all sleek and stylish. I am sure I
would be MUCH more productive with that in my office. It looks comfy too, as it’s a hard life blogging (or so I keep
telling the hubbie!). If I make myself
look more professional he might think I am far too busy to do the
housework. Do you think I can get away
with that and just swivel around in my chair all day long instead! Maybe wearing my owl slippers and Zebra
onesie, comfort is key after all.
There are so many sofas and chairs to pick from; I might
have to dot a few more around the house so it does not look so empty without
the boys here. Perhaps in a few days, I
will not feel such a void in my life, maybe I should go round trashing
(throwing all the toys out of the toy boxes) and adding a sprinkling of paint,
playdoh and coloured sand for good measure to help me remember that calm can be
nice after all!!! I should have
recorded them arguing to play back when I am feeling emotional, then the
transition might not have been such a blow!
Although hubbie and I could spend more time together if he
booked some leave, I could invest in a cuddle sofa (what a cute name!) and
re-ignite our romance! Or catch up on
some of our outstanding shows more likely…
How do you plan to spend your extra free time? I
should really stop typing now and go and deal with the morning dishes! I do not want hubbie to come back later sour
faced! Maybe I should produce a batch
of cookies so the house smells glorious and the boys come home happy instead of
seeing me still sat here drooling over sofas and chairs!
