hitting the road

I was reading an article recently about someone who was sitting at their desk one day working away thinking how lovely it would be to get away. Within a week they had packed up and were on the other side of the world partaking in some European driving exploration something.

It certainly wasn’t the first story I had read about this sort of thing happening and I am sure it won’t be the last but it was the first that has made me stop and wonder “is that a possibility?”

I admit I am the first to bang on about how busy I am and how consumed every day is with work, kids, school, life blah blah blah. But to entertain the possibility that all that could be paused while we head off to who knows where for who knows how long … mmmmm

Everyday obligations have always presented as a hurdle and admittedly probably a convenient excuse but what if? What if we just went? Hit the road? Took that flight?

There has been no hard decisions made but for the first time ever I can see that the benefits of hitting the road might just outweigh the excuses and that is something that should not be ignored.

guess what

For a whole day we heard nothing but “Guess what I’m 5 now”. “Guess what  I am still 5 now”. “Guess what I’ll still be 5 on Saturday”. Yep there has been a birthday in the house this week!

As every parent says,”we can’t believe where the time has gone”. And as every scared parent says,”if she has this much attitude now, lord help us when she is 15!”

Our little planner, outfit changer, decorator, chatterer, perfector of the back stroke embarks on a pretty big year ahead we also look forward to her insightful take on this world each and every day.
