going away...

the past week i visited melbourne leaving behind my 2 little girls in the capable care of my parents...it was heaven!  to only answer to myself...to decide, me, what i wanted to do...no emergency toilet stops...no-one sticking unwanted sugar into my latte...not being bottoms up in the pantry fossicking for yet another kiddy snack...not screaming 'get away from each other'...or saying 'if you have nothing nice to say don't say anything'...not having 7yr old eyes rolling at me...not having hair brushing tantrums...and the biggest joy for me was to sit, watch & take in the world in my own time...it was incredible.  i thought of my girls often, actually very often & found myself smiling just watching children pass near me...but i needed some quiet & i have come back fresher, stronger & clearer than ever ready to tackle anything that comes my way.
pics taken a while back of ruby yet again terrorising 'mio the cat'...when mio is tired of the taunts she bolts over the back fence & returns late in the evening.

Sounds like your 'time out' was worth it. Lots of eating, too, I hope. And I always love pics of your kitty =)

Sounds perfect. Well needed and well deserved. Now just start planning the next one...

This picture reminds me of when I was a little girl...our poor cat let us torment him to no end! Seems like a similar situation here :) So glad you were able to take some 'you' time...so important!

Thanks Sarah...so good to get to know myself again. & yes I think I used to dress my cat up & tie her to a cot when i was little...she was not happy!
