Autumn is nearly here3:17 pm
Life around here hasn't got any quieter since the children went back to school. I seem to be busier than ever.
I'm hoping to find my new rhythm over the next few weeks though.
I can slowly feel the particular kind of fog that accompanies taking care of a baby lifting, and with it maybe finally a sense of our new normal.
Maybe finally I can see how our family is, and maybe even a sense of the future?
Of course, there are still moments, days even. Like last weekend.
I was at a communication skills workshop, amongst friends, and not really expecting the emotions to come to the surface that did, but I'm glad I pushed myself out of my comfort zone. It's still so much of a surprise to me to see the new me. I'm not sure I like her much, but I'm getting more used to her.
Today we have been readying the garden a little for winter, giving the chickens enclosure a good clear out and arranging things so they have more space to scratch about.
They come out to play most days now and are so cute following the shake shake of the worms in the tub.
If I haven't got a baby in my arms, I've got a chicken!
And is it weird to want my hair the same colour as Cleo's feathers?
