Taking it all in


I had expected to write more regularly this week. I was sure the sand and the salty air would relax me to the point where the words would stream out and I’d want nothing more than to use afternoon naptime to write it all down.

But this day started like this

Both my littles close, one perched on top of the other, as the clouds rolled overhead and the waves lapped at my feet.

And now, she sleeps and he kicks and bounces. The waves continue lapping, non-napping children shout from the pools and turn carwheels on the beach, and the seagulls cry over my head.

So instead, I’m just taking it all in and using this time to relax. I’ll have more to say later this week, I’m sure.

Hope you are enjoying a lovely Monday.
