One of the best things about staying home in the school holidays is being able to potter.
It’s great to get the jobs done fast and furiously as well, but there is something about starting a job in the morning and throughout the day, just doing a little bit more of it, as the need, or urge, arises … and taking breaks as needed. There’s something relaxing and calming about starting a job, and knowing that you really don’t expect it to be done straight away, and in fact it could be the end of the week.
This goes against my natural inclination completely, but that too is part of being on holiday, and even with the kids running around, and the various arguments that need dealing to … there is a certain Mum Glow to having the time to potter.
And even more shine when one of those pottering jobs gets completed just right!
